    -fmr Congressman Jim Lightfoot endorses Joe Manchin in Des Moines, Iowa- "recently Joe Manchin hit 10% in the polls here. That makes him relevant and means he has a shot. It also saddens me that the other candidates dont care about Iowa enough to take the ethanol pledge" (Free Event)

    Trump Approval by State

    Here's an interesting website showing Trump approval by state. There's always a month lag--so this is how he was viewed in March: https://morningconsult.com/tracking-trump/ I've also included a map showing what the election result would be like if this support correlated accurately to his voting support in 2020: As I've said frequently on this forum, Trump is his own Vietnam. It is possible a good economy won't save him. Several states that Trump must win have a net unfavorability for him. Iowa is the greatest surprise considering how much it liked him in 2016. If this translates to votes (which it won't most likely), Trump loses in a landslide. There are also some potential issues for Democrats. Nevada is less against Trump that would be expected. Virginia, possibly due to Democratic scandals in the state, seems more like a battleground state than it really has been for years. Pennsylvania seems like the least likely state to flip out of states that Trump won but that Democrats generally win. Trump has pretty much been trying to keep Florida since day one. He treats Florida like his home state since he's frequently at Mar A Lago and rarely in NYC. https://www.270towin.com/maps/4Xy3k

    On to @Shamilton Make a Speech Spend 1 influence point. Pick one of your statesmen. Roll a die. If you roll a 6, that statesman gets 1 popularity point. If you get less than 6 then you can spend influence points to make up the deficit to get that popularity point if you choose. Whip Up Support This is strengthen party support. Pick one of your statesman. Expend one influence. Roll a die. 1-2 = no change; 3-5 = 1 space; 6 = 2 spaces. Public support moves towards the chosen statesman's party if the roll is favorable. Fund Newspapers Select one of your statesmen. Spend 1 influence to place a newspaper cube for that statesman's party in the bottom left box. (Yes, a party can have multiple newspapers in play at the same time) * Spend 2 influence to move one of the five existing newspapers one square to the right. Build Congressional Support Select a statesman. Spend 1 influence. Roll a die. If you roll a 4-6, your statesman receives 3 more voting power in congress. If you roll less than 4, then you can add influence to make up the deficit. Be aware: Only two players can have this in play at the same time. @Woot Aaron Burr has one. @Leuser JQA has the other. If you succeed with your roll, you'll need to steal from one of them.

    I would like to use 2 IP to advance one of the conservative papers. And please save me the coupons and the solution to last week's sudoku puzzle. That will be all for me.

    Do Burr and Hamilton accept? I assume yes but there hasn't been any confirmation of such.

    Ellsworth will fund a newspaper. JQA will spend an influence to build congressional support. That is all.

    Nader condemns assassination attempt on the President of United States "This is truly horrific. No matter our politics, we all must condemn extremism. I hope that the President is going to be alright. We must thank the secret service for preventing this attempt. This attempt also shows that it is time to going to the extreme as some of the candidates rhetoric can influence people like this. God bless the President and his family."

    The Conclusion of the New Historical President Roleplay This was quite an adventure, and we saw a lot of things develop across the journey of the campaign. 1. People just really like war: War was much more popular in American lives. 2. Polarized ideas rather than parties: People voted on an idea by idea basis instead of party by party. 3. Favorable third parties: With the polarized ideas being a thing, third parties had a chance. 4. Less stigma with socialism: As the USSR or PRC never happened, meaning the Cold War did not as well, there were never tensions against socialist ideals to the extent we have today. 5. Shift of regional centers: By the end of the RP, right wing ideals were centered in the west, northeast, and southeast, while left wing ideals were popular everywhere else. Also, a lot more center states.

    Al Gore reacts : Well..I firstly want to present my solidarity to our president. This assassination attempt shows that gunfire isn't the only way to try to kill someone in our country, and this is the reason why we need to focus on social aspects.

    Barack Obama evades assassination while in Palm Beach, Florida Shocking news out of the state of Florida today, today at a rally supporting down- ticket Democrats President Barack Obama was charged by a man wielding a knife. Secret Service apprehended the man and he was taken into custody. The man had multiple items of far right-wing propaganda bumper stickers on his vehicle. We now wait to see how many of the presidential candidates respond to this very serious attempt on the president's life." @Edouard @WVProgressive @Sunnymentoaddict @Rodja @Hestia11 @Reagan04 @jvikings1 @Kingthero @jdm06ltd @TheLiberalKitten
