More than two-thirds of Americans seriously stressed by elections

More than two-thirds of Americans say Tuesday's presidential election is a "major source of stress" for them, according to a study by the American Psychological Association (APA).

The study shows that it maintains exactly 68%. Americans polled. This is 16 percentage points more than in 2016.

The feeling of anxiety about the elections affects US citizens regardless of party preferences. 76% of the respondents say they are very concerned. Democrats, 67% Republicans and 64%. independent voters.

The outgoing President Donald Trump has repeatedly questioned the integrity of the ongoing election process, arguing that mass correspondence voting will lead to widespread electoral fraud. Democrats, however, fear that many of the ballot papers posted before Tuesday will not reach the counting committees in time.

The election campaign takes place during the epidemic. The United States is the most affected country in the world. The coronavirus has been confirmed in nearly 9 million citizens. Over 227,000 Americans died from Covid-19 (PAP)
