Democrats are more worried, scared, and lonely than Republicans.

At least, that’s what a new Gallup poll says.

According to Gallup, just 66 percent of Democrats told pollsters they “experienced happiness during a lot of the previous day.”

77 percent of Republicans said they did.

The poll also found that 58 percent of Democrats said they are “worried,” compared with just 38 percent of Republicans.

The poll didn’t specify what “worried” meant–just whether or not the subjects felt the emotion.

The poll also found that 28 percent of Democrats described themselves as “experiencing loneliness” during the previous day. Just 19 percent of Republicans did.

However, the poll showed some good news overall of the American people: “happiness” is up 5 points from the newest poll, taken between April 27 and May 10, compared to the previous poll, taken between March 26 and April 6. Worry also dropped by 12 percent.
