The study establish that 58 percentage of Republicans polled reported having first-class mental health. Only 38 percentage of Democrats and 43 percentage of Independents reported the same.

The survey concluded it was ill-defined why there was such as a strong correlation, but the human relationship between political party association and mental wellness was virtually changeless even within classes of income, age, grammatical gender and other factors.

"The ground the human relationship bes between being a Republican and more than than positive mental wellness is unknown, and one cannot state whether something about being a Republican causes a individual to be more mentally healthy or whether something about being mentally healthy causes a individual to take to go a Republican," the survey said.

The survey speculated that the fact that Republicans have got on norm higher incomes than members of others political parties could play a factor. But in the study, even Republicans making less than $50,000 a twelvemonth reported having first-class wellness far more than than Democrats earning the same.

The survey was based on interviews with 4,014 American grownups who were at least 18 old age old, conducted from November 2004 through 2007. The border of mistake was 2 percent.
