The parties’ presidential front-runners are growing increasingly unpopular, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds, with Hillary Clinton showing an especially steep decline in the past month and Donald Trump broadly disliked on both sides of the aisle.

It’s not like we have to choose between the lesser of two evils this time. We are CHOOSING to choose between the lesser of two evils. If nothing else, it’s a valuable opportunity to learn and to re-calibrate your sense of reality.
