AMERICA STILL ‘GREATEST NATION ON EARTH’
Those annoyed with repeated claims that America’s best days are in the past can take comfort in the fact that 61 percent of Republicans still maintain that the U.S. remains the greatest nation on earth — compared to 34 percent of Democrats. For all Americans, the number is 40 percent. So says a new YouGov poll, which reveals that the positive sentiments among unapologetic GOP stalwarts is the highest across 21 other demographics included in the survey.
And should the U.S. ever become more like socialistfriendly Sweden or Denmark? Sixteen percent of Republicans agreed, along with 52 percent of Democrats, and 37 percent of Americans overall.
