Hillary Trump White House

We all know this election cycle is stressing us out, but we don’t know exactly what the impact on our mental health is. To fully understand how the primaries and Hillary vs. Trump showdown have affected us, we surveyed more than 1,000 people.

As you might expect, the stress is degrading every part of their lives. It’s become harder for people to focus at work, there is strain on their relationships and their outlook on life isn’t as positive as before. The election is bumming everyone out, although there are differences based on age, gender and political affiliation.

This infographic shows the data we found and offers solutions for your stress. Use it to end the nightmare!
