Poll: Dems Mental Health Worse Than RepublicansTopics: Political News and commentaries
It really didn't require a poll to tell us what most have known all along: Dems' mental health rated significantly less than that of Republicans - per the Dems themselves:
Republicans are significantly more likely than Democrats or independents to rate their mental health as excellent, according to data from the last four November Gallup Health and Healthcare polls. Fifty-eight percent of Republicans report having excellent mental health, compared to 43% of independents and 38% of Democrats. This relationship between party identification and reports of excellent mental health persists even within categories of income, age, gender, church attendance, and education.How does the saying go? Something like, "You just can't make this stuff up"!
The basic data -- based on an aggregated sample of more than 4,000 interviews conducted since 2004 -- are straightforward.
