I didn't vote for anyone to drop out except Messam. He made a Facebook post saying the following, "With Miramar being larger than South Bend, more Fortune 500 companies and more diverse, I was asked in New Hampshire by WMUR-TV host, Adam Sexton, if it is Race or White Privilege on why Mayor Pete has gotten more national exposure than me. I'll let the pundits answer that question."

The fact that he would play the race card as an excuse for why his campaign is going so poorly really turned me off to him. It's one thing to blame race when it looks like a legit factor, but there are so many other factors at play here, and I don't want the leader of our country to be the sort of person who does that.

No other candidate has made a comment that turned me off badly enough for me to write them off, so at this early point in the race, I don't think any of the other candidates should drop out. Or rather, while I see the value in having a less crowded field, none of the candidates have particularly stuck out to me as worse than the others.
