I can understand advocacy such as 'my favored candidate has a detailed policy on the gun issue that I think could win over a lot of moderate voters' or 'my favored candidate has such-and-such a record on winning elections in red or purple districts' and the like.

It's true that implicit in such advocacy is a sort of 'my favored candidate is better on this than all the other candidates'---but what isn't in such advocacy is 'here's how the Trump campaign can put together a really effective attack on the eventual Dem nominee.'

Wouldn't it be useful if we could avoid that? (Rhetorical question.)
