Trump Global Misery

Mappiness research reveals Trump’s election day unhappiest in 6 years

How did you feel about Trump being elected?
Recent research by PSYT’s co-founder and CTO, Dr MacKerron, revealed that the day Donald Trump was elected was in fact the most miserable day in the UK in over 6 years. He also found from his research, that while the most miserable day was the day Donald Trump got elected to one of the most powerful positions in the world, he found that our most miserable activity, second only to being ill in bed, is work.
