When a crackpot runs for president

Nicholas Kristof in The New York Times:

A CNN/ORC poll this month found that by a margin of 15 percentage points, voters thought Donald Trump was “more honest and trustworthy” than Hillary Clinton.  Let’s be frank: This public perception is completely at odds with all evidence.

Kudos to Kristof for putting it in such stark terms.  The New York Times may disagree but when the public sees Trump as more honest than Clinton, something has gone wrong.
