Are satisfied or unsatisfied people more likely to vote? To participate in political protests?
Contented people are more likely to vote than unhappy ones, according to a study co-authored by a Baylor University researcher.
Dr. Patrick Flavin, an assistant professor of political science at Baylor, also found that discontented individuals are no more likely to take part in political protests.
…”we can say with confidence that people who reported being more satisfied with their lives are more likely to get involved in politics,” he said.
