Even though the country's political climate has never been so divided, most Americans agree on one thing.

What it means to be American.

See images from American history:

A new poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found that 71% of Americans think the U.S. is losing its identity. While just 3 in 10 americans regard the country's identity as secure, regardless of political party.

The survey also found that 47% say illegal immigration is threatening to the American way of life, and 15% think legal immigration is a threat.

One thing Democrats, Republicans and independents agree makes up the country's identity is a fair judicial system and rule of law, the freedoms enshrined in the Constitution, and the ability to get good jobs and achieve the American dream.
