A Washington Post/Schar School national poll released Wednesday found Americans are emerging from last week's presidential election with mixed feelings. More than 7 in 10 Americans reported feeling angry about the race between President-elect Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, with many using the word "disappointed" to describe their response to the outcome. Nearly 9 in 10 said they've been "dissatisfied with the country in recent years." Still, despite these negative feelings, 54 percent of respondents said they're hopeful about the year to come, and more than 60 percent said they expect to see "major changes" under Trump.
