Yes!, it does. However, it's impact is felt more by scalpers and intra-day traders but swing traders may not be much worried.

Spread is very influential on our trading, therefore you should choose a broker that has a thin spread and I prefer a fixed spread

Spread becomes a separate consideration for traders in choosing a broker, especially scalper traders or short term traders where their short-term trading style with small targets so spread is very decisive and useful. Logically, of course with a small spread, the target will be faster achieved with a little floating minus. However, not all pairs have small spreads depending on the price volatility of the pair, usually the major pair will have high volatility so that the spread charged is also small.

Spreads certainly have a big effect, especially on scalper traders. 
they need thin spreads to make it easy to get profits.

Although spread is considered by some traders, for my trading spread is not very influential because I feel the spread in each broker is not much different, moreover I trade in a major pair where the pair usually has a standard spread.

In my opinion, it depends on the spread of each trader, whether the spread is very influential on the trading strategy, whether the spread is a consideration in choosing a pair or broker and so on. I myself do not really care about the spread as long as the spread is still normal but I consider fix spreads rather than floating spreads because sometimes floating spreads are very painful especially when we are floating minus, spreads that stretch will increasingly make our position a big loss.

depending on the trading style we use, if we are a scalper then spread is very influential on trading results while for long time traders I don't think spread has much effect.

spreads set by the broker indeed sometimes affect our trading, especially if we use stop loss and short enough the distance of the stop loss that we install, a slight widening spread will be very risky.

Small spreads are often sought by traders and are an important consideration in choosing a broker, but for me spreads are not so important let alone affect my trading.

I also consider whether or not a broker is suitable depending on the spread, I prefer a small spread and fix.

Yes of coure it will determining your target will hit faster or not. Low spread is very good especially for scalper. Most of scslper use the brokers with low spread.

spread is quite influential, especially short-term traders because the spread of 0.1 pips can affect the stop loss point that we put.

spread can be very influential or can actually be ignored depending on the style of the trader, if we are short-term then spread is very important and helps vice versa if we trade long-term then the spread has little effect.
