There’s a decent chance that I would’ve voted for Stein as a protest vote. But given a choice between Cruz and a democratic Trump, I would much rather have Trump. But I would rate Cruz as way worse than Trump (and have done this entire time: when it was clear that only Republican with a chance of defeating Trump was Cruz and friends suggested that they’d rather Cruz beat Trump in the primary, I thought that they were crazy). I’d much rather have ineffective evil than effective evil.
