(OPINION) Michael Snyder – In my entire lifetime, I have never seen Americans so emotionally invested in the outcome of a presidential election. Yes, things always get intense as we approach Election Day, but this time around is different. There are many Democrats that do not even want to imagine another four years under Trump. In fact, for many of them, it is literally the worst thing that they could possibly imagine ever happening.
But for many Republicans, a Trump loss would be equally as devastating. Not since the days of Ronald Reagan have we ever seen Republicans adore a president the way that they love Trump, and a loss would be emotionally crippling for millions of them. With all of that in mind, check out what one shocking new survey just discovered…
As if the coronavirus pandemic wasn’t giving Americans enough anxiety already, you may have heard there’s a presidential election this November. With political divisions reaching historical highs, a survey finds a majority of the country believe their most stressful day of 2020 hasn’t even arrived yet. The poll examining mental health reveals 55 percent of Americans think Election Day 2020 will be the most stress-filled day of their lives.
There is so much at stake for both sides. Once a winner is officially declared, one side will be jubilant, but the other will instantly plunge into deep despair. As this election has drawn to a close, I have been amazed at the incredible outpouring of support that we have seen for President Trump all over the nation.
If you don’t understand what I am talking about, just watch this video, this video, and this video. I have never seen anything even close to this, and I have been following politics very closely for decades. In the old days, it was always tough just to get a few people to hold signs on a street corner, and so I was absolutely blown away by a 96-mile show of support for President Trump.
It is a very rare politician that can inspire that sort of enthusiasm, but if Trump is not able to win all of that emotion is going to come crashing down like a tsunami. I personally know so many conservatives, patriots, and evangelicals that are all-in emotionally for this election, and I am deeply concerned about what will happen if Joe Biden emerges with a victory. It would literally be the deepest emotional blow that conservatives, patriots, and evangelicals have experienced since the days of World War II, and we could potentially see millions of them plunge into a very deep state of emotional depression.
