A new report is blaming politics for stress and anxiety in Americans.

New data released this week by the American Psychological Association shows Americans are more stressed about the country than they are over money and work.

The report, titled Stress in America: The State of our Nation surveyed more than 3,400 American adults across a range of demographics. Sixty-three percent of those surveyed say the country is a source of stress, slightly higher than money at 62 percent and work at 61 percent.

59 percent of respondents felt that the country is at the lowest-point in U.S history that they can remember.

According to the study’s authors 73 percent of Democrats polled said the state of the nation was a cause of anxiety for them, as opposed to 56 percent of Republicans and 59 percent of registered Independents.
