Well, according to this poll.


Bloomberg (https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-11-01/americans-are-officially-freaking-out): “Almost two-thirds of Americans, or 63%, report being stressed about the future of the nation, according to the American Psychological Association’s Eleventh Stress in America survey… The ‘current social divisiveness’ in America was reported by 59% of those surveyed as a cause of their own malaise.”

“A majority of the more than 3,400 Americans polled, 59%, said ‘they consider this to to be the lowest point in our nation’s history that they can remember.’ That sentiment spanned generations, including those that lived through World War II, the Vietnam War, and the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11.”

There's that 30% Moron factor again.

That sentiment spanned generations, including those that lived through World War II . . .

Oik, that's bad.

I'd like to see a poll of military vets only. Might be interesting.

I thank God my father (a veteran of both WWII and Korea and a life-long Republican) did not live to see the current state of American politics. He would have been sickened.

My wife, a recently nationalized citizen, is certainly one who is freaking out. I have to tell her repeatedly, we will get through it.

If she is already naturalized, why should she be concerned?

I agree that the nation will indeed 'get through it'. The issue is what will be the aftermath.

The reason why I included that info, is because I believe it is one of the reasons she is freaking out. She is Mexican, she is very proud to be Mexican. She has not always lived there, having lived quite a bit of time in the past in Spain, and lots of American family. Having lived in Mexico, she knows what corrupt and incompetent government looks like. That's what she sees now. But, Mexico is Mexico, it may screw things up and hurt itself, but that's about it. This is the United States, it screws things up and things can go wrong all over the world. That would be her mindset.
