Survey Shows Voters Getting Stressed Out By Election 2016


#1

— New evidence shows that Campaign 2016 is having an emotional impact on people, stressing many out and, in some cases, even ruining relationships.
The fighting and acrimonious campaigning between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump has gone on for months over television airwaves and across the Internet.
“This election is one of the nastiest ones that I’ve seen,” said voter Randall Piona.
“It’s like two high school kids fighting back and forth passing bad notes,” agreed voter Antrone Bradford.

When I live is fairly benign when it comes to politics without the violence I have read about in other places. There are very few signs on people lawns for the national election while other politicians have their signs displayed.

I was at a diner this morning and the fellow next to me struck up a conversation about the national election. We spoke in generalities neither supporting a candidate but talked about the final debate which neither one of us really had watched. His main grip was that these debates were more focused on personalities and not issues. The fact that Hillary refuses to answer questions and tries to redirect to hide her true thoughts. Hillary pushes lie after lie which is easily disproved.

I’ve found this to be the most compelling and entertaining election in history. People should stop being little drama queens. You’ll be fine, whoever wins. Politics shouldn’t even be in your top ten list of concerns in life.

which voters are stressed cause I sure am not.

The media is stressed out as well as the democrats who have engaged in physical violence and property destruction. They as usual are whining how voters are disenfranchised while they sign up illegal voters, dead voters, and so on.

One has to wonder…If you get stressed out by an election how the hell do you cope with the other stuff that comes up in a normal life? That statement kind of makes me think that there’s been a lot more having babies with (close) family members going on in the past than I’ve heard about. Bothered or worried I could see but stressed out? That’s just sad.

Those who argue there is nothing to be “stressed out” about are arguing that it does not matter who wins the White House or the Senate or the House.

Let’s see how you feel about that after Clinton loads the Federal Appeals Courts and the Supreme Court with progressives who will hold sway in America for the next 40 years.

I am not surprised that people are stressed out by this election, there is simply too much at stake. As a Canadian the U.S election is big news, covered by CBC daily, maybe more than our own was covered! The BBC are covering it extensively. There was a report on CBC about the British being stressed by the chances that Trump wins. I’m not sure if this discomfort by foreign nations is a good thing or bad thing, but it’s there. You can imagine those nations who are used to sending over career politicians to negotiate wont feel as comfortable doing so against a team of skilled and experienced business leaders.

Another reason this is a stressful one is that the two candidates have vastly different views and they will most certainly enact these views. More worrying to me, would be the impact some of the outliers on the party might have, so for instance, the Bernie faithful who are absolutely driven by their socialist ideals. This is not tweaking or tinkering with the greatest system on the planet, this is an absolute overhaul and destruction of it. It would seem that these overtures would be rejected, but for how long until their voices become a more powerful force in their party?

I generally try to never get stressed about something that I can’t fix. I view it as a waste of time. I also try not to get stressed over something that I can fix. So I guess you could say that I rarely get stressed over anything.

I’m really glad to see some people on this forum not letting themselves be stressed out over who’s going to win the White House. Don’t get me wrong, I sure as hell won’t be voting for Hillary Rodham Clinton.

I think we might need to analyze what, and whether these progressive’s supreme court decisions directly impact me and your’s lives. But I am trying not to be stressed, remember.

The only thing now that can scare me is the small chance of someone nuking us. I wish I didn’t have to bring this up in this thread.
