Trump is worrisome

I had no idea that Gallup measured daily worry.  Well, they do, and Trump has got people worrying:

U.S. Worry Before and After the 2016-2017 Election and Inauguration

The 33.3% of Americans feeling worried since Trump’s inauguration is the highest monthly average since the 33.7% recorded in September 2011, following the U.S. debt ceiling crisis and Standard & Poor’s downgrading of the U.S. credit rating. It is also similar to levels seen during the Great Recession in 2009.

Similar Rise in Worry Not Seen After Obama’s First Election

The 4.1-point increase in worry since Trump won the 2016 election is significantly higher than the 0.9-point increase recorded during the comparable period after Barack Obama won the 2008 election.

As for me.
