Twitter Poll: How stressed are you about the election?

(Infographic by Kaylie McLaughlin | Collegian Media Group)

For 24 hours, a Twitter poll asked students how much stress they feel about the general election on Nov. 3

Of the 233 respondents, more than 51 percent indicated that they feel “very stressed.” Another 25.8 percent said they feel “a little stressed.”

About 14 percent of the participants said they are “not stressed at all.” The remaining respondents — about nine percent — said they “don’t care” about the election.
