A recent survey done by the Pew Research Center shows that most people think that the U.S. is among the greatest countries in the world, and 38% believe that the U.S. is the best country in the world. This belief is most common among those 65 and older and among Republicans. Those who are less educated are also slightly more likely to think that the U.S. is better than other countries. Most 18-29-year-olds, Democrats, and Independents believe that the U.S. is among the greatest countries in the world, but not above all others.
When this data was broken down by political affiliation, they found a lot of variation in how different political groups view the United States. Staunch conservatives are the only group where a clear majority believes that the U.S. is better than other countries. This is in stark contrast to the solid liberals, where only 19% believe that the U.S. stands above other countries. Other groups are move divided on the issue, but most groups believe that the U.S. is among the best.
