Survey: More than 50% of Americans believe election is stressful

WASHINGTON (WHDH) - A new study finds that more than 50 percent of surveyed Americans believe the election is a significant source of stress.

The study was conducted by the American Psychological Association. Fifty-two percent of those surveyed called the election stressful. Researchers who conducted the survey said political party did not matter, as both Democrats and Republicans felt the stress almost equally.

The study was conducted back in August, so the numbers could be even higher now.
