    2020 Candidate Charisma

    Note 5 is the precise middle point in the new system and is meant to indicate average, as 0 is a valid value.

    2020 Candidate Charisma

    The automatic mapping (for campaigns that use 1-5) the latest game engine (not released yet) currently uses is 1 -> 2 2 -> 4 3 -> 6 4 -> 8 5 -> 10 The natural way to think of this, I think, is 1 -> 1-2 2 -> 3-4 3 -> 5-6 4 -> 7-8 5 -> 9-10 Trump is a 4 for Charisma in 2016, and so will probably be a 7 or 8.

    Preferred 2020 Democratic Candidate

    The Dems need stronger candidates. I would rank Booker as perhaps the strongest of these, but I wouldn't put him as a strong candidate. Which of these Dem candidates would be over 70 in Nov. 2020? Sanders 79 Biden 78 (both of these would be almost octogenarians! to be fair, turns 78 on Nov. 20, 2020) Clinton 73 Warren 71 None of the Dem candidates listed are high charisma. I would say Biden has the highest charisma, but even there I would probably put him at 6 or 7/10. Clinton 4/10. Sanders 4/10. Warren 5/10. Booker 5/10. Harris 5/10. Gillibrand 5/10. Avenatti 5/10.

    Most preferred to run? Most preferred as President?

    9 divided by 10 is not 82%

    My best guess is a rounding error somewhere.

    Why is this happening?

    @thr33 It's on the to-do list, but has not been done yet.

    Interesting idea re responding to scandal with a speech, say. We'll see.

    Error Message when playing

    Does this consistently happen in the campaign? Does it happen at a specific point?

    Suggestion add views to canidate info screen

    Do you mean being able to view candidate platforms? Yes, that's a good idea -we'll see.

    Game idea

    If you're interested in a crowd funding project, you can contact me directly and I might be able to offer some help, as I have some experience with that and would be happy to help with letting people know about it if the game looks good.

    Game idea

    @vcczar Right now, I have my hands full with the Infinity games. However, 270soft might be able to help with a computer game at some point in the future - it really depends. If you want to make a board game first, I would recommend contacting people who have experience making board games - I don't. Perhaps find a company that makes games of this sort, and see if they are interested. Again, I have little experience with the board game industry.

    No plans to add this currently, but feedback noted.

    Dr. Ward vs Judge Kavanaugh who is telling the truth? (poll)

    This thread is off-topic. If someone wants to discuss these issues, a better thread topic would be 'Should a Kavanaugh issue be added to Congress Infinity?', say.

    9 divided by 10 is not 82%

    If you increase the voters #s to, say, 1,000 for a given region, what happens?

    @lizphairphreak All good points - we'll see. There's a lot on the plate before considering making fundraising more complex.

    Trying to Download Congress Infinity v. 2.8.4b

    @POLITICALBOMB Please contact me ( https://270soft.com/contact ). If you are only getting the PI link, it probably means your CI license is associated with a different e-mail.

    @MRA No idea re the Koran quotation. Re the Gospel quotation, Jesus is referring to what actually happened - first, mostly within the Jewish community, where there was internal dissension in families due to the advent of Christianity, which eventually split with Judaism. This happens to varying degrees nowadays. The 'sword' is not meant literally. This thread is off-topic, and so closed.

    Surrogates randomly being created?

    I haven't heard of this before. Can you describe in more detail what is occurring?

    @Harris/Ernst 2020 I take it you are having these errors with a custom campaign? If so, please send me a copy of the campaign (in a zipped format), or you can just post it here. http://270soft.com/contact

    9 divided by 10 is not 82%

    It seems like there are two, possibly separate, issues here. 1. Why only 9 instead of 10 voters? 2. Why does it say 82% reporting, which is neither 9/9 or 9/10? For the first one, do you have a party that is turned off, but has a % of starting votes?

    What version of President Infinity are you using?

    Who would Gary Johnson caucus with?

    @Sunnymentoaddict He's won two state-wide races in NM before. The only poll done in NM for the Senate race after Johnson accepted the nomination (several days after) had 39-11-21 (Heinrich-Rich-Johnson), with 30 undecided. My guess is he can do at least as well as the Republican candidate would against Heinrich.

    Who would Gary Johnson caucus with?

    I wouldn't be surprised if the RNC and NRSC completely drop any attempts to win in New Mexico. Encourage Rich to minimize campaigning or even effectively withdraw. Instead, let Johnson force the Democrats to allocate resources to the race.

    Who would Gary Johnson caucus with?

    "mandatory by some binding law or convention" I do not believe so (in the U.S. Senate).
