52. Undecided because I don't know what to decide on...

Some months ago when Harris was still in the race I posed a question on
this forum something like
"Should my preference be the candidate who has the best policies? [Harris at that time] or
the candidate who has the best chance of winning the GE? [Biden at that time, maybe still]

So after Harris was eliminated as a preference option the same question was in my mind.

I just decided that I wouldn't change my preference to Biden unless he declared Harris as choice for VP or AG or some other worthy position.

I do have another "Policy Preference" but frankly she has a low chance of winning the GE.

I am going to stay undecided. Sorry

Why are you considering this? irisblue Feb 2020 #27
Movin' your goalposts to specify "at the convention" is decidedly obvious. LanternWaste Feb 2020 #31
