The title of this page is presumptuous. "Right Now" would seem to indicate it will be full of up-to-the-minute news of the day, but that's hardly the case. In these chaotic times it takes a globally mobile crew of writers, talkers and techies to stoke the airwaves and internet with all the latest. I can't compete.
But I digress. Right now, if you have't voted already, you will--or should--very soon. I started working on this project before Trump came down with the coronavirus (a development that had looked inevitable for a long time) and I wasn't anticipating the game-changer of that coming hard on the heels of a "debate" which wasn't a debate at all, but a contest between civility and boorishness. Civility won.
My plan had been to create an instrument the undecided voter--or the voter who doesn't follow politics closely--could use to help determine which candidate's view best aligned with their own. Although my impression is that most voters have long since decided which candidate they support, I've decided to post my questionnaire anyway. The process starts with a brief test of basic knowledge of government and proceeds from there. To begin, click on "What Do You Know" below.
