Bottom of the poll barrel

We needed Gallup to tell us this?

The longer that Americans are unemployed, the more likely they are to report signs of poor psychological well-being. About one in five Americans who have been unemployed for a year or more say they currently have or are being treated for depression -- almost double the rate among those who have been unemployed for five weeks or less.

So when your life isn't going as planned, you're more likely to feel bad? Who knew? I think they've finally run out of poll questions.

I wonder, though, if the growing number who simply give up and quit looking for a job reach the final acceptance phase of the grieving process. Do a poll on that, somebody.
