Happiness research

Saturday's Wall Street Journal carried an interesting story about research that's being done to figure out what makes folks happy. One finding from the Pew Research Center has me scratching my head a bit:
A survey of 3,015 Americans suggested happiness is more likely if you earn more than $100,000 a year, attend religious services and are a Republican.
Okay, the hundred grand, I get. The religious services, I understand. But happiness comes more easily to Republicans? Do the folks in Berkeley know?
