Americans are happier according to Gallup - andrew_o - 01-29-2020

American’s happier than three years ago

An insightful Gallup poll asks Americans how satisfied they are on around 30 issues. What is interesting is the changes from Jan 2017 to Jan 2020. 
The big increases are:
  • state of economy +22%

  • security from terrorism +18%

  • military strength +15%

  • race relations +14%

  • crime +9%

  • position of blacks +9%

  • income distribution +8%

  • opportunity to get ahead +6%
Those that have decreased are:
  • environmental quality -6%

  • level of immigration -6%

  • abortion policies -7%
As I see it most of these points assist Trump. The abortion thing is a trigger issue though.
