Could everyone please stop attacking other candidates

Everyone has their preferred candidate. I get that. But everyone needs to stop attacking their opponents. That only helps Trump and the Republicans.

Right now their are several posts on this board attacking Sanders. A few attacking Biden. And some more attacking the other candidates. This really needs to stop. One of these candidates will be our nominee. Attacks like these will only create bitterness among supporters of other candidates and we need to be fully united to beat Trump.

So please, please stop with all the attacks and negative posts.

Interesting results

Two days ago I posted a simple question on this board to supporters of Biden, Warren, Sanders and Buttigieg (the top 4) as well as Undecideds: "Will you enthusiastically support the Democratic party nominee regardless of who it is?"

Counting only direct responses to my OPs by the supporters of those candidates who answered Yes, the results are as follows:

Biden: 21
Undecided: 9
Warren: 7
Sanders: 4
Buttigieg: 3

Everyone is free to draw their own conclusions from these results.

If Steyer and Bloomberg offered Trump $1 Billion

to resign and not run again do you think he would take it?

USA Today: Beating Donald Trump in the 2020 election isn't everything; it's the only thing

Debating wine cellar fundraisers, free tuition and 'Medicare for All' won't rid America of an unfit president: Our view

The Editorial Board USA TODAY

To the casual observer of the Democratic debates, it seems like candidates are spending a lot of time debating improbable ideas like free tuition that is, when they are not arguing the appropriateness of holding fundraisers in wine caves.

While President Donald Trump is holding pep rallies in key battleground states, the Democrats are engaged in what looks at times like a squabble within an academic department.

Perhaps as a result, the ratings for the Democratic encounters have been slipping with each installment. To some degree, this is the inevitable outcome of a race pitting an incumbent against a large field of would-be challengers.

Focus on winning 2020

But there is also a warning in it: Few of the ideas being debated are getting much traction beyond Democratic true believers. And even many Democrats are ready to see some winnowing of the field in the early caucus and primary states.

This is a pretty good indication that the party's voters should focus largely on one overriding issue: which of the candidates is best equipped to defeat Donald Trump next November.

Let's remember that the horrible moderate centrist Hillary Clinton

helped to secure healthcare for more people than any of the current candidates for the nomination.
