I would also say it can be hard sometimes like in the following sentence:
Most people in America are in favour (favor) of peace.
I can translate it with both verbs.("ser" y "estar")

  • La mayoría de la gente en América está a favor de la paz.
  • La mayoría de la gente en América es partidaria de la paz.
