Gallup poll confirms: US conservatives
are more patriotic than liberals

Telegraph [UK], by Nile Gardiner

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/4/2013 6:22:00 PM

This should come as no surprise, but Gallup’s latest poll confirms that American conservatives are significantly more patriotic than American liberals. When asked the question: "How proud are you to be an American--extremely proud, very proud, moderately proud, only a little proud, or not at all proud?", 89 percent of conservative voters say they are “ "extremely proud/very proud." In contrast just 76 percent of liberals share this sentiment. 17 percent of liberals say they are "moderately proud" to be American, and six percent say they are "only a little/not at all proud."

Comments:
We knew that but it´s good to see it confirmed.

This is the reason the overseas vote is suppressed. Everyone knows the men and women in uniform are mostly conservative, therefore mostly republicans . Fewer democrats hear the drum, preferring to stay safely at home , protected by others.

It didn´t take a Gallup poll to tell us that.
We already knew the "tolerant" are not tolerant, nor do they like people who are patriotic.

Liberals tend to think of the USA as "just another country". Conservatives tend to think of the USA as an idea worth preserving.

During the 2008 financial crisis, the US Federal Reserve struggled to grasp the scope of the problem and how to adequately respond, transcripts reveal. After a five-year wait, the central bank released the records of a total of 14 meetings from 2008. The transcripts offer the clearest insights yet into the central bank´s thinking during the crisis. "Frankly, I am decidedly confused and very muddled" said former chair Ben Bernanke during a September meeting. Overall, the documents paint a picture of the Fed that shows that it worried perhaps more than it should about inflation risks, and failed to grasp

Leading doctors have raised fears that high numbers of patients are dying while waiting for heart surgery in Wales. The Royal College of Surgeons wrote to healthcare inspectors last year warning of “grave concerns” that too many people were dying in the south of the country because of long waits for heart surgery. The letter, seen by The Daily Telegraph, calls for swift action to tackle “unacceptably high mortality” levels and highlights more than 150 cases in which patients died waiting for life-saving treatment.

New Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon was joined by the First Lady on Thursday night, as she took part in a skit and promoted her Let´s Move campaign. Michelle Obama talked about the Olympics, her first job, and how her eldest daughter Malia will soon be learning to drive. In the opening section to the show, the First Lady starred in a skit with Fallon and Anchorman star Will Ferrell, where she showed off her dance moves. She later returned, wearing an elegant black outfit, to chat to Fallon in front of the live Tonight Show studio audience. ´This is so cool,´ Mrs

Just when you thought you were safe - the Polar Vortex is back. The Midwest and North East are thawing out after being covered with more than a foot of snow over the past week, but forecasters have warned it won´t be for long as another cold front is on its way. The wintry storm is expected to slam the Midwest this weekend, bringing ferocious winds and freezing temperatures as low as 35 degrees below normal. After rattling the Midwest, it will stretch into the South and East at the start of next week, according to Weather Underground.

As Kiev burns, Western policymakers are eating ashes. Our efforts to help Ukraine towards Europe, democracy and the rule of the law have failed spectacularly. Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin is celebrating not just sporting triumph in Sochi, but geopolitical victory in the affairs of his most important neighbour. It is easy to overcomplicate the Ukraine story with historical, ethnic and geographical details. The country is often said to be split between east and west, between Russian- and Ukrainian-speakers, between those nostalgic for Soviet certainties and those who want a Western-style future. Ukraine’s business elite is divided too, between the cronies of

Hillary Clinton won´t be America´s next president, says Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann, because many U.S. voters ´aren’t ready´ for a female president and don´t hunger to break new ground the way they did with Barack Obama. ´I think there was a cachet about having an African-American president because of [civil rights] guilt,´ the outspoken conservative told Tribune Media Services columnist Cal Thomas, in a piece that first ran February 18. ´People don’t hold guilt for a woman,´ she said, and even as Americans elect women at every other level of government, ´I don´t think there is a pent-up desire´ to

New battle lines are being drawn in the fight between gun-control advocates in Washington and Second Amendment advocacy groups, over a proposal that would mandate the ´personalization´ of every new gun sold in the United States. Sen. Edward Markey, a Massachusetts Democrat, is behind a bill that would prohibit the sale of run-of-the-mill guns, requiring biometric technologies such as fingerprint recognition or a paired device--such as a wristwatch--that would authorize a gun to fire if it is nearby.

Vice President Joe Biden publicly conceded on Wednesday what many critics of the Affordable Care Act have claimed: The federal government will end the Obamacare open enrollment period far short of its goal. [Snip] The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that in order for the Obamacare system to avoid a financial ´death spiral,´ at least 7 million Americans must enroll. More importantly, the nonpartisan CBO projected that more than 2.7 million of them must be young Americans, whose limited use of health care services is expected to balance out the greater needs of older, sicker people.

Clashes have been underway since early this morning in Kiev´s Independence Square. So far, more than 21 protesters are believed to have been killed, according to a Reuters photographer who counted bodies in the square. The Telegraph´s correspondents on the ground--Roland Oliphant and David Blair--have seen ten bodies laid out on a pavement, a number of which displayed single bullet wounds to the head. Protesters believe the victims have been killed by sniper attacks. The clashes shattered a truce that Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych called with the opposition just hours earlier, following a spurt of violence that killed more than two dozen

An earthquake measuring 4.1 on the Richter scale has rocked the north Devon coast, shaking buildings and sending tremors across England and Wales. The quake, which is the largest to hit the country in six years, struck just after 1.20pm this afternoon, and shook the ground for 20 seconds. [Snip] The British Geological Survey (BGS) said residents reported their houses rocking and others have described the quake as "frightening". But others likened the quake, which originated around three miles beneath the Bristol Channel, to a "heavy truck going up the road". Tremors were felt in areas including Dartmoor, Bristol, Taunton,

At least 27 people are dead--one of them was decapitated--and hundreds are injured. One man was shot through the eye as police snipers apparently targeted the heads and chests of protesters from city rooftops. On the ground, heavily armed riot police brandished Kalashnikovs and launched stun grenades against pro-democracy demonstrators who had taken up arms, anything from bricks and bottles to pistols and shotguns. And all the time, flames soared into the sky from the city’s central square. What has been happening in Kiev, capital of Ukraine, before the truce late last night could not be further removed from the harmonious atmosphere of

Singer Ted Nugent apologized on Friday for calling President Obama a “subhuman mongrel” last month. “I do apologize, not necessarily to the president, but on behalf of much better men than myself,” Nugent said in a radio interview on “The Ben Ferguson Show." The rocker said he was sorry for using “street fighter terminology of subhuman mongrel,’” and admitted "I did cross the line.” Nugent said he should have used a term such as “violator of his oath, the Constitution” instead. The apology came just a day after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) urged Nugent to apologize for the remark. “Ted

First conservative icon Thomas Sowell turned on Ted Cruz, now it appears that Ann Coulter is souring on the Texas Republican as well. Sowell published two columns this week slamming Cruz for being self-serving. Coulter praised the first of Sowell’s columns in a tweet Wednesday. Later, in an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity” Wednesday night, Coulter doubled down on her praise of Sowell’s anti-Cruz column: ”I never push anyone else’s column but mine. Today everyone has got to read Thomas Sowell’s article.” During the “Hannity” segment, Coulter attacked tea party groups for being filled with “shysters” and “conmen,” naming specifically the Senate Conservatives

Sarah Palin has made an endorsement in Texas. She’s backing tea party leader Katrina Pierson over Rep. Pete Sessions. In a Facebook post, Palin notes that Pierson’s “life’s story is full of hardships she has fought to overcome, which taught her firsthand the importance of self-reliance, hard work, and the blessings of liberty.” One of those hardships includes a 1997 arrest for shoplifting. As the Dallas Morning News reported on Valentine’s Day, “In 1997, five days before her 21st birthday, Katrina Pierson, then named Katrina Lanette Shaddix, was arrested on a charge of theft of greater than $50 and less than $500.” Pierson,

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, may be the brightest light to adorn the Republican Party in many years. He knows how to make the case for conservative ideas, pointing, for example, to the contrasting fates of Detroit and Houston to illustrate the superiority of conservative policies. So it´s particularly galling to see that rather than train his fire at President Barack Obama and the liberal machine that cocoons him, Cruz has become a one-man wrecking ball against Republicans. His most recent foray into sabotaging his colleagues concerned the debt limit increase. Because Speaker John Boehner sent over a "clean" debt limit bill,

I also believe that those scientists who pretend to know exactly what this will cause in 20, 30 or 50 years are white-coated propagandists. “The debate is settled,” asserted propagandist in chief Barack Obama in his latest State of the Union address. “Climate change is a fact.” Really?

How much more are black people in this country supposed to take? On Saturday, a Florida jury failed to convict Michael Dunn for the callous murder of Jordan Davis. Though he was convicted of three counts of attempted murder and also on a gun charge, a mistrial was declared for the first-degree murder charge. He will face substantial jail time – perhaps up to 75 years on the four charges for which he was found guilty. Prosecutor Angela Corey has also publicly declared her intent to seek retrial on the murder conviction. However, she is the same prosecutor who oversaw the Zimmerman

Listening to pundits talk about the potential 2016 Republican field, you’d be forgiven for forgetting about Rick Santorum. The former senator’s strong second-place showing in 2012 shocked—even scared—the GOP’s kingmakers, who saw in him an abortion-hating firebrand with no chance of beating Barack Obama. So it’s no surprise that today, the party’s mainstreamers are acting like he’s old news, again dismissing a Santorum presidential candidacy. Not that he cares. He’s too busy plotting another possible run at the White House. In recent months, Santorum has gathered his inner circle of longtime advisers to sketch out a presidential campaign. He’s scheduling trips to

FRESNO, Calif.- Federal officials say many farmers caught in California´s drought will receive no irrigation water this year from a vast system of rivers, canals and reservoirs interlacing the state. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation announced Friday it will continue to monitor rain and snowfall, but at this point there´s not enough water in the Central Valley Project to give water to farmers. Last year, Central Valley farmers received 20 percent of their normal allowance, and that figure is now set at zero percent. This marks the third dry year for the state, and Gov.

As American voters watch ObamaCare continue its Godzilla-like rampage across the national health-care landscape, it´s worth considering the collateral damage this political monster may be doing to the Democratic brand itself. What if ObamaCare´s problems become a metaphor for the modern Democratic Party? Two portents emerged the past week. The United Auto Workers suffered a humiliating defeat at Volkswagen VOW3.XE -0.49% in Tennessee. And days before that loss, voters San Diego elected Republican Kevin Faulconer mayor after he teed up his opponent as a captive of the city´s public unions. Two big constituencies sacked in a week.
