85 Percent Of Americans Just Want This Election To Be Over: Says First Exit Poll

If you think this election is the worst ever and just want it gone, you’re not alone, not by a long shot. The Politico/Morning consult exit poll shows 85% of the country shares your malaise at this election. The poll shows an overwhelming outpouring of negative feeling about this election.

Only 29% and 25% were proud and or happy about this election.

The poll also showed that voters wanted a strong leader much more than they wanted “someone who shares their values” (36% strong leader/ 18% values).  30%  of those polled felt that their financial situation was worse than it was 4 years ago, and 40+% felt the country was worse off than four years ago.

I don’t think I have ever seen an election so dominated by pure negativity. Nominally an election should be a celebration of our liberty and engagement in the running of our country, instead this year it’s become an oppressive gloom fest. We can only hope this is the bottom and we will return to America’s historic optimistic outlook. After all we have every reason to be optimistic because we have the freedom to make our lives better.
