At 3:00 p.m. EST, I will be on NPR’s “Talk of the Nation” program, along with Charles Blow of the New York Times, to discuss this report of the Pew Research Center suggesting that belief in American “exceptionalism” is subsiding.  If you look at the full report linked on that page, you’ll find that none of the survey questions actually asked about American “exceptionalism,” in so many words.  Since it was a cross-national survey querying the British, the French, the Germans, and the Spanish as well, perhaps it was not the sort of question that travelled very well.  Anyway, I hope it will be an interesting discussion, and FT readers might want to tune in.
