The survey shows that 88% of liberal-leaning Democrats are more anxious compared with moderate Democrats and conservatives at 79%. However, the same group of left-leaning Democrats report they’re more anxious at 80% to 60%.

Both levels of anxiety and frustration have increased since June, according to the AP, but the levels are higher among Democrats.

The margin of error in the survey is +/- 4.1% with researchers having surveyed 1,075 between October 24 and 28. RealClearPolitics currently has President Donald Trump’s approval at an average of 43.3% a year before the 2020 election.
