Exit Polling At The Gym?

As I was walking out of the gym this morning, another man who was also leaving (white, middle-aged and mustachioed - for demographic purposes) smiled at me and said "Phew! Such a relief to be done with it, you know? I really feel hopeful and so much less disillusioned now."

In my experience, people in gyms do not use words like "disillusioned".

I should have asked him if he had voted earlier in the morning (voting opened at 6AM) or if it was the workout that made him feel so positive.

Can a workout leave you feeling "less disillusioned"? No idea, but I am going to find out about voting and its side-effects in a couple of hours.
