Nationalistic Ideals Policy - Political Parties and Stances

Nationalism, made distinct from patriotism by its propensity to advance one nation to the detriment of others, is an ideology that appears to resonate more with Republicans than Democrats. Nationalist sentiments appear to be reflected in polling. One poll indicates that 57% of Republican voters are concerned that immigration poses a threat to the national identity of America. This compares to the 86% of Democratic voters that perceive immigration to be essential to the collective American identity. Polling also reflects a widespread association between the Trump Republican administration and nationalist sentiments; 56% of voters report that they believe President Trump did enough to distance himself from white nationalist groups. 83% of Democratic voters interpreted the president’s nationalist associations to be problematic, compared to just 26% of Republican voters.
