Yeah...not surprised the US is not on the list. We are not a big group of happy campers right now. Hard to be happy, when you are watching your country tank.

what number was the US last year?
In 2007, it was 3rd. It is now, 19th.

We have been told we should be unhappy (something I have always thought was odd and a neo republican thing as reason to vote for them, in spite of reality), by the current President and his supporters, from the start of Great Recession and throughout Trump's entire campaign, even though the economy was getting better.
