I foresee an upcoming dilemma concerning campaign rallies vs. slowing the spread of COVID-19

By dilemma I mean a situation in which one is confronted with only bad choices.

Trump has stated that he'll continue his rallies, which will certainly accelerate the spread of COVID-19, so that means the two remaining Democratic candidates will face the choice of also holding rallies and further aiding the spread of COVID-19, or not holding rallies and thereby helping Trump win the election.

Suppose one of the two remaining candidates stops holding rallies while the other candidate continues. Which candidate would you vote for?

1. The rallies are to recruit volunteers...

 

... so it's important. But it will matter way more in the fall.

So hopefully its less risky then

2. Forget the rallies. What do the RNC and DNC plan to do for their nominating conventions?

4. Good point. Although the excitement of people parading around for their candidate

 

would be missed, Iím sure there is a way to string together studio speeches, home videos, on-line interviews, etc., to be effective.

Will be interesting.

3. There is no evidence of any spread because of rallies.

 

If you have any please present it.
