A new poll reveals which groups of Americans are most likely to get their "USA! USA!" on at the drop of a (stars 'n' stripes Uncle Sam) hat.

Gallup reports that patriotic sentiment trends towards Republicans, senior citizens, and people from the South.

68 percent of Republicans polled said that they're "extremely proud to be an American," versus 47 percent of Democrats. By region, the South leads nationalist sentiment with 61 percent, compared with 55 percent in the Midwest, 50 percent in the East, and 46 percent in the West. In terms of age, two-thirds of people 65 and older told Gallup that they're "extremely proud to be an American," and that percentage grows progressively smaller among younger groups.


Welp, this is as good a reason as any to re-watch Whitney Houston's rendition of the National Anthem at Super Bowl XXV.

Bad at filling out bios seeks same.
