    A nation wide poll of 1,000 people?

    Did the Harris Poll have a budget cut or maybe this is the work of the summer intern staff?

    So that's 1000 people polled out of 300,000,000 Americans ?

    Wow, yes how is anybody going challenge such a valuable statistic that represents 1/ 30,000th of the American demographic

    Genius pure genius !

    Well, It nice to know that at least 940 American are happy!

    The Harris Poll of more than 1,000 people reported the overall "satisfaction" level, defined as people who said they were either very or somewhat satisfied with their lot,

    Ya know, I am "somewhat satisfied with my lot" too, make that 941 !

    Apparently you dont understand the least bit about the science of polling and sample size. The confidence interval is 4 for a sample size of 1,000 out of 300 million people. In other words, this sample size is adequate to show that with a 99% certainty, 96% ±4% are happy. So in worst case scenario (for you best case) only 92% are happy.

    Genius pure genius !
