How interesting that you link to some barely known independent blog, rather than the source of the actual poll, CBS.
Perhaps because there's no insertion of the ludicrous "mass psychosis" tag?
Just by the by, our intelligence community has established that Russian agents worked to interfere with the election.
So, if we're talking about psychosis, I'd guess it's the folks denying this that have the issue.

Can someone explain to me how you don't think Russia interfered in the elections? The CIA thinks that Russia was behind the DNC and Podesta leaks with "high confidence." The CIA is also certain that Russia was using bots to promote anti-Hillary stories and Russia even made "fake news" stories about the Clintons and promoted them using bots, as well. How is this not interfering in the election?
Or do you guys think that liberals think Russia meddled with election devices? No liberal I know thinks that. This was a psychological operation by the Russians as much as a technological one, and many of you fell for it hook, line and sinker.
It is hard to define exactly how much Russia influenced the election, this is true, but the fact remains they did.
Interestingly I find very hypocritical that Trump is the target because democrats didn't won the elections specially Hillary that her trail of deceit, corruption and trash is longer than Trump in politics.
And if we investigate everybody in government we will be without government
...what can we do when those most corrupted are the ones that runs the government.
This report includes an analytic assessment drafted and coordinated among the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the National Security Agency (NSA), which draws on intelligence information collected and disseminated by those three agencies. It covers the motivation and scope of Moscow's intentions regarding US elections and Moscow's use of cyber tools and media campaigns to influence US public opinion. The assessment focuses on activities aimed at the 2016 US presidential election and draws on our understanding of previous Russian influence operations.
The U.S. Intelligence Community (USIC) is confident that the Russian Government directed the recent compromises of e-mails from US persons and institutions, including from US political organizations. The recent disclosures of alleged hacked e-mails on sites like DCLeaks.com and WikiLeaks and by the Guccifer 2.0 online persona are consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts. These thefts and disclosures are intended to interfere with the US election process. Such activity is not new to Moscow—the Russians have used similar tactics and techniques across Europe and Eurasia, for example, to influence public opinion there. We believe, based on the scope and sensitivity of these efforts, that only Russia's senior-most officials could have authorized these activities.

The Senate Intelligence committee said today that there is "no doubt" that Russia attempted to influence the 2016 election. But they also said that Russia has interfered with our elections before 2016..and also attempt to manipulate elections in several other countries. It's just one of things that Russia does.
The long history of the U.S. interfering with elections elsewhere

Not quite. All this hogwash about Democrats/Leftists being so butthurt we can't accept trump is president is pure drivel meant to make conservatives feel better about themselves. I'm about as staunch a liberal as they come and although I find it heinously distasteful in all respects, trump is the president now. What worries me and should be a concern among all Americans is how many fishooks putin has in trump. Yet here you sit casually discussing how it doesn't matter whatever connection trump has to putin, as if you're all ready to renounce your American citizenship because russia is such a superior country in all respects! Heck, putin just legalized wife beating, golden age huh?
