As Democrats Move Toward Presidential Primary Season, Watch These Three Indicators
1 – Number of Candidates
Many of us have long said that the large number of candidates is not a bad thing – up to a point. We are approaching that point and still have, by my count, 18 (!!) candidates in the field. The first round of primaries and caucuses will thin that out quite a bit. For the good of all, it would be better if most of these candidates dropped out right about now.
At this point, for many to stay in the race is a waste of effort and a distraction for the electorate.
