When the winner was announced, and McCain got blown out, they took more samples and saw that testosterone levels in McCain supporters had dropped by nearly 10 percent, while Obama supporters got a small boost.
About 40 minutes after Obama won the election and McCain supporters really had some time to let the "hope and change" set in, another saliva sample was taken and testosterone levels had dropped by nearly 25 percent.
"Male, but not female, voters respond with testosterone changes to the outcome of presidential elections as if they had personally fought to ascend a social dominance hierarchy," the study concluded.
