Thirty-eight percent say they are “extremely proud” to be an American, which is the lowest percentage since Gallup began tracking the trend in 2001.Still, 65 percent of adults polled say they are either “extremely” or “very” proud of the nation — 27 percent are “very proud,” and 22 percent are “moderately proud.” Nine percent are “only a little,” and 4 percent are “not at all proud.”
“This record-low level of extreme national pride comes at a challenging time in the U.S. as a pandemic-weary public is struggling with the highest U.S. inflation rate in more than four decades,” Gallup stated, noting that the poll was conducted after the Buffalo and Uvalde mass shootings but before the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.
The current 38 percent expressing extreme pride is well below the 55 percent trend average and 80 percent “extremely or very proud” average. The combined 65 percent who are extremely or very proud was two points lower in 2020, according to the survey. The highest reading occurred after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
While Republicans “consistently outpaced Democrats and independents” since 2001 and still do today,” the GOP’s recording of “extreme national pride” is at its lowest point in the trend (58 percent). Independents’ extreme pride is also at its lowest point on record (34 percent).
Democrats hit a record low of 22 percent in 2019 and rose to 31 percent in 2021 “at the start of Joe Biden’s presidency.” But as Biden’s first term continued, Democrats’ extreme pride dipped down to 26 percent.
“All three major party groups show double-digit declines in pride compared with 2013, with Democrats’ 30-point decline the largest. The current 32-point gap in Democratic versus Republican pride is larger than the historical average though smaller than the record-high 54-point gap in 2019,” the survey report states.
Overall, majorities of each political affiliation say they are at least “very proud,” including 84 percent of GOP voters, 62 percent of independents, and 52 percent of Democrats. National pride is highest among Republicans, men, older Americans, and those without a college degree.
“Although Americans’ national pride is at or near historical lows, depending on the measure, a majority of U.S. adults remain proud to be an American. This dimension of patriotism has been subject to change throughout the years, depending on a variety of factors, including the popularity of the sitting president, the health of the economy, and high-profile national events such as the 9/11 terrorist attacks,” the survey conclusion states. “In recent years, all party groups have become less inclined to say they are proud of their country, which may reflect deepening political divisions and party gridlock in Washington…”
Gallup conducted the poll between June 1-20, 2022 with 1,015 U.S. adults. The margin of error is ± 4 percentage points at the 95 percent confidence level.

Rare nickel sells for $1,452 – the number of legs you need to look for to find one worth thousands
A RARE nickel has sold for nearly $1,452 on eBay – and you could make a mint if you spot one too.
The 1937 coin features a buffalo with three legs on one side, with an Indian head on the other.2The buffalo nickel sold for nearly $1,500 on eBay this summer 2The animal is supposed to feature four legs, but one of the front legs isn't showing
The standard US nickels came with a buffalo on the reverse side between 1913 and 1938.
The animals were all supposed to have four legs, but some coins were produced with just three legs clearly showing.
In particular, one of the front legs is missing.
In June, one version of this coin minted in Denver sold for $1,451.67 on eBay after attracting 20 bids.Most read in MoneyTWO FOR ONE Lotto winner scoops second jackpot in 10 years - his strategy revealedCHICKEN WINNER I tasted 4 rotisserie chickens including Costco - there was a clear winnerLULU WHO?

The circulated piece had been certified by the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) in an AU-55 state.
This means the coin showed "full detail", but with light friction on the high points.
Other error coins with three legs have also sold for thousands recently, with buyers snapping them up for $1,027 and $1,776.
Meanwhile, the auction record for a buffalo nickel without the error is currently $18,213, according to the PCGS.
As always, the value of any coin is only how much someone else is willing to pay for it.
In other words, you're not guaranteed to get hundreds or thousands if you have a similar one.Is your small change worth a fortune?
If you believe you have a rare coin then you may be able to make a real mint.
The most valuable coins are usually those with a low mintage or an error, as they're deemed the most valuable by collectors.
To find out if your small change could be worth a fortune, check how much the specific coins are selling for on eBay.
Search the full name of the coin, select the "sold" listing and then toggle the search to "highest value".
It will give you an idea of the amount of money that the coin is going for.
You can either choose to sell the coin on eBay or through a specialist site such as Coinappraiser or USA Coin Book.
If you choose eBay, remember to set a minimum price that is higher or at the very least equal to the face value of the coin - or you'll make a loss.
You also need to be aware that even if your coin “sells” on eBay for a high price there’s no guarantee that the buyer will pay up.
In its terms and conditions, eBay states that bidders enter a “legally binding contract to purchase an item”, but there’s no way to enforce this rule.
The most eBay can do is add a note to their account for the unpaid item or remove their ability to bid and buy.Read More on The US SunHAMMER TIME Armie Hammer goes shirtless & reveals bizarre new tattoo in rare public outingCHICKEN WINNER I tasted 4 rotisserie chickens including Costco - there was a clear winner
