Told you so…
President Barack Obama won reelection largely, in part, because blacks, Hispanics, and young voters overwhelmingly went to the polls for him. But a new Harris Poll “Happiness index” study has found each of these groups are considerably less happy since Obama’s reelection.
The poll found that while 44% of blacks were “very happy” in 2011, only 36% were in 2013, which is still two percentage points higher than whites (34%).
Hispanics, on the other hand, are the most unhappy, according to the study. Only 28% of Hispanics are “very happy” in 2013, compared to 35% in 2011. The report suggests Hispanics may be unhappy because of the contentious immigration debate.
