Voters are frustrated, unhappy and even disgusted


WASHINGTON – As the first debate of the presidential campaign approaches, voters are in an increasingly frustrated and unhappy mood, driven to their choices more often by dislike of the opposing candidate than admiration for their own, according to new polling data.

Nearly 6 in 10 voters described themselves as frustrated by this year’s campaign, according to newly released data from the nonpartisan Pew Research Center. That’s up from just under half earlier in the summer. More than half called themselves disgusted.

Only about 1 in 4 voters reported positive feelings about the election, saying they were optimistic or excited, a share that was heavily outweighed by the 43 percent who are flat-out scared.
