HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – The race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton has been a long, tough battle that has many supporters for both candidates wrestling with anxiety as Election Day nears.
Dr. John Gavazzi is a psychologist in Camp Hill. He says the feelings are real.
“There was a recent survey,” Gavazzi said. “That showed about 52 percent of Americans are somewhat stressed or significantly stressed by this election.”
Louise Knight is a Clinton supporter who says the recent FBI disclosure raised her anxiety level.
“I don’t put any news shows on right now.” Knight said. “I have a subscription to the New York Times and have not read it in the past five days.”
Knight says she will continue to volunteer her time with the Clinton campaign in Dauphin County, but she will no longer monitor the news to find out if there is more negative information coming out against her candidate.
Fred Jenkins hands out yard signs for the Trump campaign. He talks to a lot of people on a daily basis and he says many are looking forward to the end of the election season.
“They are so upset over all the negative comments that are going on back and forth,” Jenkins said. “They are getting tired of listening to it, and most people have made up their minds who they are going to vote for.”
Gavazzi says anxiety will drop once the election is over.
