Cast your vote!
My vote: Nakamura
I guess your stages of reasoning were something like this:

1)I'm American. Now this is very important.
2)Carlsen is Norwegian. Pass
3)Nakamura is American. Bingo!
5)Therefore Namakura good.
(This should also explain why Morphy is the best player to have ever lived according to some people.)
Instead, the stages should've been something like this:
1)Carlsen is WAY MUCH STRONGER than Nakamura.
Now that was easy
