The best choice

STEVE COTTON pointed me to an interesting website that allows you to compare your stances to those of the presidential candidates in a very specific way.

It’s a fun process. You can take a relatively rapid version or you can opt for the extra questions available at the bottom of each category. I ate the whole banana.

trumpMy score shows that Trump and I agree 87 percent of the time. I wonder how I would have stacked up against Ted Cruz, my previous favorite.

Hillary and I are in agreement 9 percent. I’m embarrassed to learn that we agree on anything at all.

hillaryI boarded the Trump Train after Cruz pulled out. I did it initially because he was the only viable candidate still standing against Hillary.

However, The Donald has grown on me.

After taking the quiz and getting your results, there is the option of seeing how each candidate stands specifically on each of the questions. I did that with Trump, and was pleased to see his opinions and mine are incredibly in lockstep.

Trump’s polling numbers have been rising of late, and Hillary’s have been falling. This is heartening.

The Donald is a reaction to the lamentable condition of American culture. I wrote about this phenomenon back in March. We live in unfortunate, interesting times.

Señor Cotton, inexplicably, remains on the fence regarding the Hillary-Trump decision. This is strange because a more stark black-white choice would be hard to find.
