Heading into a contentious national election with an ongoing pandemic and racial unrest, many people are experiencing tension and stress.
More than two-thirds, approximately 68%, of American adults say the 2020 U.S. presidential election is a significant source of stress in their lives, according to a recent survey by the American Psychological Association. In comparison, only 52% said the same before the 2016 election. The proportion of Black adults reporting the election as a source of stress jumped from 46% in 2016 to 71% in 2020.
People on both sides of the political divide are feeling tense, anxious, and overwhelmed right now.
