    @NYrepublican Why does this have a yellow journalism-style thread title that underwhelms the reader once the thread's subject matter is apparent?

    2020 Democratic Poll

    They'd have many months to gain name recognition. Only people that remembered the 2004 Keynote address knew who Obama was before he won the Democratic primary. The same can be said of Bill Clinton (he gave the keynote address in 1988), but no one knew who he was in the pre-primaries in 1992. Many polls suggest that Sanders would have defeated Trump in 2016, but how many voters knew who Bernie Sanders was even in Oct 2015? Yet, he was competitive in the primaries. I think the name-recognition matters most in the pre-primaries. The "no bodies" have to establish themselves by the November or December before January of the Election. Many times people like these "fresh faces" more than they do the presumptive frontrunner. These "no bodies" on the first list basically need to be nationwide names by November 2019. They still have over a year to do this.

    Why is this happening?

    I just space-barred as the simulation party. It was Trump/Pence vs. Warren/Castro. The map looked believable until about a week before the election. Green didn't show up as having Maine until the results came in. I think the same with Utah. I'm just out of ideas on how to curb this behavior. I thought making the voters more set in their ways would prevent this.

    What happened in that game? Those spreadsheet results are laughably unrealistic.

    Oh you also have some of this stuff in Israel.But in Israel they're able to get legal loopholes worked out for them courtesy of UTJ and Shas.
  12. I think this is the best I've ever done playing as the Lib Dems on the PMI engine: Labour completely collapsed and lost some of their most prominent MPs in the process, though I also took a few seats from the Conservatives. Among the prominent MPs defeated were the brothers Miliband, Jack Straw, and David Davis. I actually got Brown to pledge confidence and supply in the post-election negotiations, but it took all my remaining PIPs and a change of issue stance, and there seemed no way to break the impasse after that, so eventually the Conservatives took office in a minority government. Oddly enough, the Conservatives didn't even secure the support of the 2 UUP MPs in the negotiations, which would have given them a working majority since Sinn Fein took 5 and 323/645 = majority of 1. Though I suppose the engine doesn't take account of Sinn Fein's abstentionism.

    I thought that might be the case, but the most recent anomalous result was with the official 2009 scenario, not with mine.

    2020 Democratic Poll

    1. Nobody has any name-recognition amongst non-political people or people outside of their state. They would all get smashed in a real election against Trump. 2. Biden but that's pushing it. 3. Same level

    Schools have reportedly faked it in the past. I'm a bit of a no-nonsense kind of guy, I'd announce we're doing inspections and we'll be visiting randomly if there's an issue they can speak to me when we're there. Anyway, according to the report they did their research on the last bit.

    I think they schedule visits so the investigations don't seem like raids. Additionally, they have to make sure there aren't school events or other things that could get in the way of an investigations. Certainly a school could fake it. I'd be for impromptu investigations. I think investigators at a Yeshiva or other non-secular school would have to be thoroughly schooled in how those non-secular schools teach in order to do an investigation according to those schools's standards.

    I hope Anthony will forgive me for this one but this is big news coming from NYC. https://www.politico.com/states/new-york/city-hall/story/2018/08/16/carranza-calls-out-15-yeshivas-for-delaying-investigation-into-educational-standards-561880 https://www.politico.com/states/f/?id=00000165-43b0-d4e8-ade7-7bb8487b0001 I've no doubt they weren't allowed access to Oholei Torah because schools like those don't have a secular curriculum. Also, what's with this nonsense of having to schedule visits, it allows people to fake it. I'd have just showed up randomly and said "We're inspecting for this investigation into your schools' educational curricula, we'd like to see." If access was denied it'd be noted. If they claimed inability I'd say "Duly noted" and leave and come at a later date. If I was doing this it'd have taken 1 year not 3.

    Why is this happening?

    @admin_270 I just spacebarred through the General Election (no primary) on my 2020 scenario as the Simulation Party (to watch). The results didn't make any sense. Warren won UT by a large margin. The Green Party won ME, despite scoring only 3% nationwide in the PV. A few other states went odd directions. I had hoped to combat this by making the voters more certain of who they would vote for. In fact, I have no uncertain voters for any party. They're all set to vote certainly for one party, or whatever the middle option is. I would assume this would prevent such strange election results, but it didn't. Here is the election result file. I'll also attach the scenario. Can you explain this and hopefully prevent it?
