A new Gallup Poll on American’s mental health would indicate that Democrats don’t feel they are mentally very healthy.

Only 28% of Democrats said they had “excellent” emotional well-being, a year after Joe Biden claimed victory in the Presidential Election.

42% of Republicans and 33% of Independents reported “excellent” mental health in the November poll released last week. 

Gallup notes that overall Americans’ “excellent” mental health rating remains low amid COVID-19 health issues.

Those reporting the best mental state were churchgoers. 44% of weekly churchgoers said their mental health was “excellent,” more than any subgroup tracked by Gallup and the only category to register higher levels of emotional health than before the COVID-19 outbreak.

According to Gallup’s “Bottom Line”:

Mental health ratings among women, lower-income earners and Democrats are particularly low. Americans who attend religious services weekly are notably more emotionally resilient than those who are less religious.
