New Jersey came in No. 50 for overall patriotism and No. 49 in veterans per capita.

Pennsylvania ranked No. 37 overall, and Delaware came in No. 31.

WalletHub says many Americans feel their patriotism has been effected by the recent protests against police brutality and many find it hard to celebrate a country that continues to have racist incidents persist.
