More than two-thirds of New Yorkers say they are patriotic and 80 percent are proud to be Americans, a Siena College poll released on Wednesday found.

The poll released a day before the nation celebrates Independence Day found New Yorkers across the state are generally proud of the country, with 75 percent saying the national anthem makes them feel proud. Just over half, or 55 percent, say they wear red, white and blue on July 4.

Forty-five percent believe America is the best country in the world, according to the survey.

And yet, New Yorkers are also on board with dissent, the poll found.

But New Yorkers by a majority, 67 percent, do not believe it is un-American to protest the actions of the government. A combined 53 percent said it was inaccurate to say someone who believes is socialism is not a good American.

And 88 percent believe freedom of speech applies to all, including those who criticize the country.

Still, burning the flag is too far for 68 percent of New Yorkers, the poll found.

Only just over half, or 52 percent, say they vote in every election.

“New Yorkers of every political party, age and region strongly support complete freedom of speech even for those that criticize the country, but a small majority, 52 percent say it is either somewhat or completely descriptive of them that it makes them angry to see anyone that does not stand for the pledge of allegiance or the national anthem,” Levy said.

“Still, only 26 percent think it is un-American to protest against the actions of our government while 67 percent think it is not.”

The poll of 804 state residents was conducted from June 11 to June 18 and has a margin of error of 3.8 percentage points.
