Their chief finding is a striking association between population density -- the concentration of people in a given area -- and happiness. When the researchers ranked all 1,215 communities by average happiness, they found that average population density in the 20 percent most miserable communities was more than eight times greater than in the happiest 20 percent of communities.

... "Life is significantly less happy in urban areas," ...

Makes me wonder just why many of the supporters of Pres Trump always seem to be so angry.

Because there are no jobs in those areas. I don't disagree - I like small town life vs city life. I live in a smallish urban area now but I was born and raised in a small town and have done the big city as well. There are just less irritants the smaller you go. I am happy and content in the metro area but probably will move to a bigger one for a different job.

Don't know what they were angry about before. But right now they are angry when they slowly.... they ARE slow of mind on average.... when they ever so slowly start to suspect that DOTARD can't come through on any of his promises. He just isn't capable.... in fact he is more mediocre than they are.

It's the anger of the guy who realizes his new car turned out to be a lemon. And then he feels stoopid.

Correct. Angry Trump supporters project their anger onto others, who they then proceed criticize for being angry. LOL
