7. As you can see by the polling, most people feel that criticism

 

of primary candidates is OK. Otherwise we have no good way to select candidates to support. There are many criteria to consider for each candidate. I might well disagree with a candidate's position on something, or think a candidate cannot generate enough support to win the general election. Those are points that can be discussed here.

Criticism is not necessarily an attack or bashing. While it might seem to be a fine line, saying, for example, that I think a particular candidate is too conservative is very different than calling that candidate a DINO. The first is a criticism, while the second is an attack.

We will never get away from posting criticisms here, but we could avoid attacking or bashing a candidate we don't thing is a good choice.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
