We asked for your reaction to various issues related to last week’s elections. Here are the results of our unscientific survey, based on more than 300 responses. At least one reader thought question No. 2 was ambiguous, perhaps conflating a statement of expectation with a statement of enthusiasm, so, with apologies from the poll staff, results might be interpreted accordingly.
