  1. 2020 Election playthrough

    Agreed, I think Texas and Ohio should have flipped before Kentucky or Arkansas.
  2. 2020 Election playthrough

    Just finished a play myself, MT, KY, GA, AZ, AK, AR, MS, WI, PA, MI, and LA all flipped to Gillibrand-Castro, while OH and TX remained Trump country, with the popular vote being roughly 60-38.
  3. 2020 Election Scenario update is up!

    Ah okay, that makes sense! I also noticed that there are a few events ("Report: Economy stagnates but unlikely to fall into recession" and "Protectionist policies have not backfired") have the issue profile of the environment. I'm loving the new events so far.
  4. 2020 Election Scenario update is up!

    Made the mistake of playing this scenario with the beta update, and it crashed. I'm going to try again with version 2.5.8 instead of the new 2.6.9. I did notice a few endorsers aren't correct, specifically the governor of Puerto Rico, other than that small detail, everything looks good so far.
  5. 2020 Election Scenario update is up!

    I just downloaded this scenario and noticed something minor, Mitt Romney has Jon Huntsman's bio.
  6. 2020 Starting %'s -- 11 Questions

    I tend to think that Biden, Sanders, and Warren all get a dip in the polls, whereas Gillibrand and Harris both strengthen their positions. I do think 18% is probably pretty close to where Gillibrand starts the primary season, she’s a compromise between the establishment and progressive wings, and has lead the charge on the issue of sexual assault for years. I think Booker takes the more establishment wing, as well as in the south. His primary base would be the mid Atlantic, and would be a great VP option. I think Harris has some strength in the West and south, while also having the progressive and establishment support, due to her past as AG and consistency in opposition to Trump and support of progressivism. I think McAullife will have strength in VA, but not much outside of that, due to the field already being large and split. Klobuchar is one to watch, as she could be strong in the Midwest and may be positioning herself as a more moderate voice, though I’d keep her support in the low single digits. HRC won’t run, but would poll around 7-10% tops. In terms of matchups, I think democrats retain a generic ballot lead of 7-9% against Trump. Biden polls about 47-38 against Trump, with strength in the Midwest. I think Sanders is probably around the same. Gillibrand gets 46-37, Harris 45-39, Booker 45-37, and McAullife gets 42-36. I think HRC would poll 42-38 against Trump, with basically the same electoral map as 2016.
  7. Historical Scenario Commission Election Updates!

    When I go in to edit, it says "Access violation at address 004E4EE0 in module 'PI.exe'. Read of address 00000018," and it reverts back to the old ID. I've redownloaded both scenarios, and it still happens. Strangely, it's only those two I've had an issue with.
  8. Historical Scenario Commission Election Updates!

    I’ve been playing through many of the scenarios and noticed a problem in 2000 and 2004. When I try to add a candidate and or edit their ID, an error pops up about access. However, this isn’t a problem with any of the other scenarios.
  9. Alabama Senate Special Election 2017

    Sue Bell Cobb and a write in (third party in terms of gameplay) for Luther Strange would be incredible.
  10. Ferraro-Kennedy 1984

    What if Ferraro had run instead of Mondale? This was quite the nail-biter, as it was tied at best, and the last day of the campaign showed me getting 230 electoral votes. I used @vcczar's 1984 scenario (but I changed Ferraro's portrait).
  11. Final Update: US 1792

    I thought I saved a screenshot. But it seems to have not saved, so I don’t remember the exact number. I could play as Clinton as well, but it will probably be the weekend before I get too much free time.
  12. Final Update: US 1792

    I may have to wait until Sunday for this one, but I did play through 1788 as Adams with no problems. I didn’t come close to beating Washington, to no one’s surprise!
  13. Final Update: US 1788

    I’ll gladly play as Adams.
  14. Final Update: US 1788

    I’ll give this a play tonight or tomorrow!
