86% of Americans are (Still) "Very" or "Fairly" Happy

Author 512932
Message Al Hirschfield

The vast majority of Americans report being 'very' (42%) or 'fairly happy' (44%), but the combined 86% is down from 91% the last time Gallup asked about this, in December 2008. It is also the lowest overall percentage happy Gallup has recorded in periodic readings over 71 years and is only the fifth time happiness has dipped below the 90% mark in 23 readings since 1948.

Is this about Americans in just the US OF America....or all Americans,...Central, South and other North Americans? This is never clear. (No such country called "America", except colloquially,)
