Most Think Americans Should Be Proud of U.S. History

There has been much debate lately over whether states should remove monuments and other symbols that reflect a part of American history that is no longer in line with the nation’s values today. But even with a speckled past, most Americans still believe they should be proud of this country’s history.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 68% of American Adults think Americans should be proud of the history of the United States. That’s down just slightly from the roughly three-out-of-four who have said the same for the past nine years.

Sixteen percent (16%) think instead that Americans should be ashamed of the United States’ history, while 15% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The national telephone survey of 1,000 Adults was conducted by Rasmussen Reports on May 25 & 28, 2017. The margin of sampling error for the survey is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Fieldwork for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC.
