WASHINGTON (AP) – A majority of Americans say they’re frustrated, angry – or both – with the 2016 presidential election.

That’s according to a new poll by the Associated Press.

The poll finds most Americans feel hopeless in this years election.

Majorities of Americans want more focus on issues such as health care, Social Security, education, terrorism and homeland security.

The survey also found that most Americans are keeping up with the election in some form.

Eighty-six percent of Americans are paying at least some type of attention to the race.

The poll also showed that health care ranks first, with 81 percent listing that as very or extremely important.

Others include Social Security, education, terrorism and homeland security.
