More than a third of Americans don’t think the president loves America, according to a new survey.
Fewer than half of adults, 47 percent, said the president loves his country, while 35 percent said he doesn’t and 17 percent weren’t sure, according to a Huffington Post/YouGov poll released this week.
Sharp partisan differences exist on the subject, with 85 percent of Democrats and 11 percent of Republicans not questioning Obama’s patriotism. Twenty percent of Republicans and independents said they were unsure if Obama loves America, compared with 9 percent of Democrats.
The poll was conducted amid furor last week over former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s comment during a dinner in Manhattan that “I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America.”
