    Explain policies, but curb any attacks. Those are counterproductive in the long game and Dems have to play the long game (Trump) here.
    It seems that remaining vague on policy particulars and attacking Trump is the theme, so far. Culling of the herd will be rapid with Super Tuesday in March, 2020.

    Trump is the most consistent polling president, people have decided on him and he's consistently polling in the negative. The fact that the Right constantly brings up Biden reveals their fear.
    We were told Hillary had a 95% chance of being president? Need I remind you of President Trump!!
    I doubt Joe will make it though the primary.

    A lot of the Far Left want to go after Biden, down and dirty. It's their only route to victory at this point. This dynamic does not bode well, online the Left is already consuming itself, I too hope candidates remain focused on policy and getting rid of Trump.

    It is essential we put differences aside for the sake of the country, and get this miserable orange society out of office. I will vote for whoever wins the Democratic Primary, guaranteed. I have yet to decide who I will be supporting in the primary, though would prefer a candidate with appeal in the States we lost to Trump and is a bit more on the moderate side. I have problems with Biden, but I think the government would at least function normally under him.

    A good portion of them will drop well before the NH primary is my prediction. Most of the rest will drop right after NH. A few will stay in it to fight it out.

    By the way, the candidates are everywhere here in NH all the time now. I've seen a half dozen of them already in various spots.

    Those help in the General, but in the primary he doesn't really have any progressive credentials to speak of.

    Just a guess on my part but I think they're all looking for name recognition and setting the pecking order for a 2024 run.

    Bill De Blasio? Seriously? I'm betting the DNC is phoning him, begging him not to do it.

    I would say electability might be Cuban's strong suit. The People don't want a politician. We saw Trump waltz right through the primary, to the Presidency.

    We need a charismatic non-politician. If you want better liberal chops, I submit Oprah then.

    True, but Dems are less anti-government and anti-establishment as the GOP. Obama is still very popular.
