The poll revealed Sixty-six percent of Democrats they experienced happiness during a lot of the previous day.

As the United States begins to reopen its economy following the devastating effects of the coronavirus, Democrats are seemingly less optimistic compared to Republicans.

According to a new Gallup poll, Democrats are far more likely to say they are worried and less likely to say they are happy.

The poll revealed sixty-six percent of Democrats say they experienced happiness during a lot of the previous day.

Meanwhile, seventy-seven percent of Republicans reported being happy.

Additionally, fifty-eight percent of Democrats said they were worried, compared with 38 percent of Republicans.

Twenty-eight percent of Democrats said they had experienced loneliness during the previous day, compared with just 19 percent of Republicans.

Unsurprisingly, single people are more worried, lonely, and bored, and less happy than married people.

Seventy-one percent of married people say they were happy the previous day, compared with 61 percent of single people.

But Gallup said America’s emotional health is improving.

According to a poll taken between April 27 and May 10, happiness is up to five points to 72 percent compared with 67 percent in the poll taken between March 26 and April 6.

As Vox News reported: An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll revealed sharp partisan divides between Americans over the coronavirus pandemic.

The poll found 68 percent of Democrats are worried that someone in their family could catch the virus, while just 40 percent of Republicans and 45 percent of independents share that concern.

The gulf in understanding over an outwardly nonpolitical issue underscores how signs from politicians and media outlets have played a critical role in shaping how severely Americans are taking a viral outbreak that has overcome health care systems and triggered mass quarantines in several countries around the world.

The poll also found 56 percent of Democrats believe their day-to-day lives will change in a major way in the future — while just 26 percent of Republicans hold that view.
