Please stop raising your hands in unison to provide answers to questions that might destroy whatever chance you might have to win the 2020 presidential election.

That is the big worry of Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne. And he is right. Answering affirmatively by raising your hand to the question of if you approve of giving health care to illegals or decriminalizing the unauthorized crossing of the border is pretty much a deal killer for the vast majority of American voters. Those raising their hands might get a warm, fuzzy feeling as well as the approval of the leftwing of the Democrats as well as the mainstream media but it is suicidal at the ballot box.

Dionne - Democrats - Hands - Questions - Run

This is why Dionne wants the Democrats to just not raise their hands to questions since it will almost inevitability run in Republican campaign commercials. He begged the Democrats to stop doing this on Sunday in "The Democrats are fighting each other when they should be fighting Trump."

...Democratic presidential candidates should join in an informal union (they are pro-union, aren’t they?) and agree to stop answering “raise your hands” questions in debates. Inevitably, they are forced later to say that this or that issue is complicated, that the question they were asked was not exactly the right question — and the more they explain themselves, the more slippery they look.
