    in gut responses from...

    I wonder why "in" should be used here. Richard Dawkins and Other Prominent Scientists are members of Scientific Americanís Board of Advisers. So simply "gut responses from..." is sufficient and "in" should be removed.

    And supposed that the author means "(Dawkins and others) in their gut responses react to Trump's win, then "from Scientific Americanís Board of Advisers" is not necessary there (the author can mention it in content of the writing).

    After the comma, in is required in the condensed English of headlines. It would be superfluous if the comma were replaced with a colon.

    The editor thought the affiliation of the authors was important enough to occupy the headline. You can omit it when you become the editor.
