Scientists prove that Donald Trump is affecting bridge players

A satirical scientific study has 'proved' that the rise of Donald Trump in the US Presidential race has had an impact on how bridge players are bidding. The researchers have shown that US bridge players are more likely to bid 'No Trump' than before he was a candidate.

As well as political satire, the 'research' was also used to highlight how statistical data can be misinterpreted to 'prove' a fatuous and unrelated hypothesis.

Nonetheless, if at your next game your partner makes an unwise no trump bid, maybe they too have been affected by the Republican candidate.
