    Default Study: Many Democrats Exaggerated Mental Distress After 2016 Election

    Sounds similar to the displays of tribalism we witness here, every day.

    STANFORD, Calif. — Many registered Democrats who claimed they were suffering from mental distress after Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election may have been embellishing a bit. A new study comparing online searches to public surveys show that a significant portion of Democrats
    were
    likely over-reporting their stress or mental health issues, but doing so as a means to back their party.

    Our research suggests that for many Democrats, expressing mental distress after the election was a form of partisan cheerleading,” write researchers Masha Krupenkin, David Rothschild, Shawndra Hill and Elad Yom-Tov in their findings. “Clearly, many Democrats were, and are, upset about the Republican victory in 2016; these findings do not invalidate those feelings but put their depth and related actions into perspective.”

    This so-called “reverse” cheerleading occurs when a person misreports or exaggerates a condition publicly in order to show support for their affiliated group, or in this case, their political party. The authors say that a person’s actions in private reveal their true condition, however, and for the study, that can be determined by evaluating private search terms. In other words, a person who might describe suffering psychological distress on social media or to their friends, but doesn’t search for any type of help or relief, is more likely showing a form of reverse cheerleading.

    I already gave Sailor shame for posting this. I can tell you this is pretty bogus from my own experience, and others. These type of polls, are one of those things a person should feel shame spreading in places like this. Studyfinds.org posts all sorts of studies, with the clarification that it's for debate purposes. These aren't exactly scientific polls. Does this one sound scientific? https://www.studyfinds.org/seniors-w...n-their-lives/.

    They have this as well. https://www.studyfinds.org/half-chil...t-gun-control/ It's probably not worth trumpeting around with either.

    I didn't know Sailor posted this. No, it doesn't sound scientific but I read it and it sounded familiar.

    Polls are usually pretty bogus, all the way around.

    Most polls that you get like that, tend to just be inflated peer polls. When you have umpteen questions on, just how they'd even get this info, you know it's probably worthless. They certainly aren't asking the liberals, and psychologists have confidentiality issues, and reputations to uphold. So it sounds likely, to just be sourced opinions, from a book cover perspective. When I see people trying to pass that kind of stuff off on Facebook, or political chats, it's normally time for a deep breath, or even a snack. Speaking of that, I just remembered I bought some stroopwafles at the store. You might not be touting it, but I still want that snack. I haven't had something like that in awhile.

    I don't think it was exaggerated. They seem severely mentally distressed yet today. Read some of their posts here. TDS IS real!!
    Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    The only person here who posts crazy rants against Trump is Guno.
    Every other unhinged poster is a Trumpster.

    You cannot read if you think guno is the only who posts crazy rants against Trump.
