Seems to me the Issues badly need updating. Trump really shows how outdated the game is when you read the descriptions each position. Free trade, military intervention....just a few of the many issues where the descriptors just don't fit with the current reality at all. For example, the far-right has returned to American First-ism. The game would have you believe these were just neo-cons.
Even if you leave Trump out - you'd still have things like Iran and Same Sex Marriage, which seem more fit for 2004 or 2008 - as opposed to 2016. The Iran issue descriptions reflect pre-deal conditions from the late Bush-era. You also have 50 state gay marriage, which really blows up that whole box entirely.
I changed the Id on 'Iran' to 'Iran Deal' and just had the FL-FR spectrum reflect approval or disapproval and a little blurb why.
