    Heavens! More opinion! Never have I seen so many people complain about the use of opinions do nothing but opine.

    Why Are Conservatives Happier Than Liberals?: Scientific American Podcast

    Looks like she is right.... unless you libs can come up with this type of research for an opposite view.
    Both use the same Pew survey as their starting point:

    In 2006, a public-opinion survey addressing the relation between
    political orientation and happiness inspired headlines
    and editorials around the world. Specifically, according to the
    Pew Research Center, 47% of conservative Republicans in the
    United States described themselves as ‘‘very happy,’’ as compared
    with only 28% of liberal Democrats (Taylor, Funk, &
    Craighill, 2006, p. 16). The conservative columnist GeorgeWill
    relished these statistics, writing that ‘‘liberalism is a complicated
    and exacting, not to say grim and scolding, creed. And not
    one conducive to happiness’’ (Will, 2006).
    Again, note the date of the study, at a period of time where liberals had been several years without power, and feeling quite frustrated as a result.

    I present my opinions as opinions, which is more than you and George Will did. I also explain why I disagree with a solid reason. More than you did.

    Now, about your claim that liberals love their country less than "regular people"...

    Let me save you some time. In fields known as the "social sciences" they often must rely on what are called hypothetical constructs. Happiness is one of these. So are presidential favorability ratings, personality assessments, attitudes, beliefs, persuasions, and just about anything you'll ever find on a survey.

    I see the usage of the same word both in your references, and her post as well.

    Subjective.

    So now is subjective happiness actually happiness, or just a willingness to cling to the belief of happiness??

    First you libs want some kinda link to backup her statement.... you get it, then you complain that it's subjective when it's a subjective emotion.

    Heads you win, tails she loses.... libs.

    Conservatives are happier than liberals. This according to a 2006 Pew Research Center survey cited in a paper published this month in Psychological Science.

    But New York University researchers set out to isolate the reasons why right-wingers would have greater subjective well-being than left-wingers.
