The second presidential debate revealed a startling truth: Somehow, against all odds, there are some American voters who remain undecided. How is this possible? Also: HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE??

Among the non-committed voters at the debate: a Muslim woman. How could she be undecided? What is the thought process? Sure, Trump would expose me and other Muslims to intolerance, “extreme vetting” and outright abuse. But on the other hand I sure do like red hats.

Your Canadian friends are here to help, America. This simple quiz will guide you to a clear understanding of whether you should vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton or Republican Donald Trump.

Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton? A quiz for undecided voters

  1. Just add, Hillary is out telling Americans what she will do for the country, while Trump is out trying to tell Americans what he is going to do, to the country. If Trump molests the US the way he molests women, than, I just your flag going down, America.

  2. The photo-shopped photo accompanying Feschuk’s quiz, (trump embracing Putin) tells you all you need to know about the honesty and integrity of both Feschuck and Maclean’s magazine.
    In Feschuck’s biased multiple-choice quiz, all the left-wing media cliches, distortions and fevered fantasies about Trump are abundantly evident. However in the alternate choices offered, I fail to see any connection to Hillary Clinton. Her actual record of positive accomplishment while holding Public Office, including First Lady, is decidedly weak to non-existent. Her professional reputation as a lawyer is even worse!
    So much for useful idiot Feschuck’s lame attempt at political humor.

    • I see the shovel has already done too much damage.

  3. Trump devalued the discourse in this election to that of a schoolyard bully. Glad to see this quiz expressed in the same colour. Funny.

    • This article is so typical of the biased, left wing media. When the news broke that the FBI had reopened the e-mail case, I went back and forth between CNN and Fox. Fox had a panel discussing the motivation
      and timing of the FBI Director for this new news; CNN had 6 photos of women Trump had supposedly sexually abused and were discussing that old news. Anything to deflect from the mess Clinton is in. Warner, the owner of CNN, is the 8th largest contributor to the Clinton campaign. When I read that, I realized why many call CNN the Clinton News Network.

  4. The problem with this election is that soon it will be over and what will remain is the publicly flaunted journalistic bias and lack of integrity by a journalistic community that is as much under the control of special interests as the government is….. Is this how you were tough to be impartial and objective in school? Mr. Scott Feschuk maybe you have a completely different set of morals than I but by my estimation you have publicly discredited yourself as a journalist,,, , report the news thru impartial eyes. And if you’re foot happy with what you see from one candidate then simply cast your vote in private for the other, until then you should refrain from using your position to influence political elections with prejudice and bias. Be a reporter Mr. Feschuk

    • Wow…..such criticism. This is a humorous piece of fluff. Quite appropriate in my mind, for a clown candidate.
