Among the Trump supporters I know, no one would be surprised by this revelation, and no one is changing their mind. My sample is small, unrepresentative.

Smith>>Kohli. Objective facts and personal likes are two different things. My favorite Indian cricketers are: 1. Kapil Dev 2. Mohinder Amarnath 3. Krish Srikkanth 4. Virendra Sehwag That does not mean I think Amarnath>Gavaskar.
