Who is happier: Liberals or Conservatives asks Brad Edmonds from LRC.

People who are more educated, who make more money, who live in the South, who feel that life gives them what they put into it rather than what they're "entitled" to, are happier because they believe it's their responsibility to earn happiness; when we have such a belief, we act on it. Those with less education, those with less income, members of government-favored unions and their sympathizers who live in the frozen North, those who feel the government should guarantee their income and their freedom from unpleasant conversations (and people and ideas) feel as though the things that provide happiness are out of their control.
