Are We Happy Yet?

Regardless of Income, GOPers are Happier

Republicans are more likely to be very happy than Democrats or independents among those with incomes of $30,000 and over. Among the less affluent (under $30,000) Republicans are not significantly happier than Democrats or independents.

Some of us are happier than others, and this variance helps to paint a portrait of the kind of people Americans are. It also casts doubt on some of the famous wisdom on the subject.
