A large scale research study to understand strategies for coping with the toxic political climate has finally published its findings giving hope to those seeking a way out of their daily despair.
Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health wanted to understand how people dealt with the highly polarized environment that exists today and which is expected to persist for some time to come. Surprisingly they found people were more or less equally riled up regardless of which side of the political spectrum they were on.
“Normally we expect higher levels of satisfaction among supporters of the party in power, but if anything they seemed even more angry and rabid than the left who themselves were highly agitated.”
The results were so similar across the board that they had to greatly expand the study eligibility criteria to find a demographic that was coping reasonably well.
“Everyone we studied seemed so angry and unhappy. Except for those who were either dead or in a deep vegetative state since 2014. They seemed at peace.”
They noted that subjects who entered vegetative states in 2015 or later were more peaceful that the average person, but brainwave patterns indicated they were quite worked up according to their level of exposure to the election campaign while they were still sensitive to external stimuli.
“Hopefully knowing there are at least two ways to avoid the anger this past election has generated will be of comfort.”
