Despite many likely U.S. voters believe America is “systemically” racist and sexist, the overwhelming majority believe America is the best country in the world. According to a national phone and online survey conducted by Rasmussen Reports, 80 percent of likely voters are proud to be an American.

That includes 58 percent who said they are very proud. Just 19 percent are not proud to be an American.


Ninety percent of Republicans, 80 percent of unaffiliated voters and 70 percent of Democrats are at least somewhat proud to be American. Seventy-four percent of Republicans are very proud to be American. Fifty-five percent of unaffiliated voters and 44 percent of Democrats agree.

Fifty-three percent of likely voters at least somewhat agree that America and most of its institutions are systemically sexist in favor of men. Forty-eight percent agree that America is “systemically” racist.

Seventy-three percent of Democrats agree America is “systemically sexist.” Just 48 percent of unaffiliated voters and 34 percent of Republicans agree.

Seventy-one percent of Democrats agree America is “systemically racist.” Forty-seven percent of unaffiliated voters agree.

Of concern to Donald Kendal, research fellow at Heartland Institute, is the fact a majority of voters under 40 support giving the United Nations authority to protect civil rights in the U.S.

Sixty-one percent of voters under 40 at least somewhat agree that “America and mos tor its institutions are systemically racist.”
