In new poll, a majority say they can’t remember a time when their levels of stress over healthcare, the economy, and social divisions were higher
A majority of Americans surveyed in a study of stress levels, released on Wednesday, said they consider the present day to be the lowest point in U.S. history, and indicated that the future of the nation is a major source of stress in their lives.
Out of 3,440 respondents surveyed in August by the American Psychological Association, fifty-nine percent said they can’t remember a worse time in the nation’s history. The people surveyed included Americans who had lived through World War II, the Vietnam War, the September 11 attacks, and the Cuban Missile Crisis.
