I doubt anyone ever changed their party affiliation based on a gallup poll about who claims to be happier.

I'm sorry, I can't be happy and healthy without my soul intact.

Even after the researchers took into account other influencing factors like race, age, location in the country, marital and child status and socioeconomic status, they found that the differences were still there, though "on a muted basis,"

Was guessing so.

Says you. I just donated $2k to Romney. NOW WHERE'S MY HAPPINESS?!?!

/no I didn't

No shiat they are not as healthy as Republicans. Why do you think they are always biatching about not having free healthcare?

/I'm being a smartass, BTW

I think it points more to the cold evil bastard nature of liberals more than changing minds.

The study asked 1000 democrats born between 1864 and 1910 and 1000 republican born between 1950 and 2012.

What if I find being evil to be an enjoyable occupation?
 
2012-05-11 12:33:42 PM
Or, be wealthy enough to afford good health care, thus being more likely to vote R.

Then I suggest supplements. Lots of them. CoQ10, Gingko, you name it.

Democrats = want to push their beliefs on everyone.
Republicans = want to push their beliefs on everyone.

Both sound miserable.

Studies also show that people with lower IQs tend to live happier lifestyles even though they die earlier (wonder why that might be, huh).
 
2012-05-11 12:43:19 PM
I started reading - discovered that the "study" is self-rated.
Stopped reading.
 
2012-05-11 12:43:41 PM
On average Democrats are better educated and make more money than Republicans neither of which necessarily make you happier and could in fact make you question things more often. If I had to guess I would say that Republicans are more into organized religion and due to social bonding, not spiritual engagement, I think this makes them happier.

/2 cents
//not religious in any way

Yeah, KY, TN, AL, WV, AR, MS, TX, OK, etc. are all healthy, happy, and well adjusted populaces.

I wouldn't vote Republican even if not doing so meant I would get ass cancer tomorrow. I'd rather suffer than be an asshole.

THIS so much.

I said as much when asked a similar question (not about illness but job loss) in 2004 too.
 
2012-05-11 12:55:17 PM
Republicans are(allegedly) for the status quo. Democrats are(allegedly) for progress and change. If you are already happy with the way things are, where ya gonna go? If you're sick and sad and angry where ya gonna go?

This story is boring every year.
 
2012-05-11 12:55:23 PM
You're putting the cart before the horse. People who already have enough money to buy comfort and security tend to vote Republican. This doesn't mean that a miserable poor worker will suddenly become happy if she votes Republican.
 
2012-05-11 12:55:54 PM
That, and never make a pretty woman your wife. Explains Newt Gingrich, anyway.

If you can always blame someone else, it takes away a lot of the injurious self-loathing.

I came here to say exactly that.
 
2012-05-11 01:00:53 PM
Yeah, I suppose most people who are rich and/or delusional would be fairly happy.
 
2012-05-11 01:03:12 PM
As intelligence goes up, happiness often goes down. Look, I made a graph! I make a lot of graphs.
