It really depends on the poll!
I'll wager the question was posed as a five-point scale (very happy, somewhat happy, neither happy nor unhappy, somewhat unhappy, very unhappy), and it would have been interesting IMO to see the combined scores for the first two answers.

I should also note that this survey limited itself to the nation's 10 largest metros. (It has to be based on metro populations, for otherwise Boston and San Francisco, neither of which are among the 10 largest cities themselves, wouldn't be on it.) It's entirely possible that folks in, say, the Twin Cities are absolutely ecstatic with their lives, but this survey wouldn't have picked that up.

Interesting also that NY, DC and LA all had "very happy" scores right at the 10-city average, and that save for top finisher Dallas-Fort Worth and pack trailer San Francisco, all the others had scores within a narrow range.

Since most of the cities are roughly the same amount of people very happy I guess its fair to assume that only 1/3 of the people in any giving area are very happy. That probably goes for the burbs too. People out here whine about taxes .. So that 1/3 number is probably pretty universal.. The rest of the people are so-so and a large amount are never happy, no matter what.
