  1. Here is the result of my first attempt to win 538 electoral votes on Hard. Rules that I set were to use the unmodified game with no changes. No changes to who is running, set on hard. I Selected Huckabee as my candidate and the earliest starting primary date offered as the start date. I won Iowa and NH, but lost SC, NV, and all by a couple of the Super Tuesday states. I then won all the states after except for a surprise loss in Indiana by less than 1 percent. The advantage of being a republican candidate is the winner-take-all for the later primaries ended my race earlier giving me an advantage over Clinton. While Clinton won the democratic nomination easily, it took her a few weeks longer to get the needed delegates. I selected Trump as my VP choice. Somewhat of a surprise, but I liked his stamina and since I had won the GOP nomination early enough I had the time to improve Trump's very low issue knowledge and debate skill. They were at 5 within a couple months. His high stamina let him be a little more useful in his main job of going around the country insulting Clinton. Starting the election, DC was where I was furthest behind and so I filled that up with organization and foot soldiers and ads, along with a couple visits. VT and Massachusetts were also tough, but eventually I had a lead in all states. Here were those where it took the longest: On June 22nd, It was essentially a tie in WA and CT. I was barely ahead in NC and MA. I was barely behind in IL and NJ. I was behind in MA, VT, and DC. By July 22nd, I was ahead in every state, but it was close in MN, VT, and MA. It was August 24th when I was finally ahead in every state. I never looked back. I started to focus on increasing my margin for victory and got 90.5 percent of the vote. I am considering trying for getting every vote, or to try to find a weaker candidate. I played this on 7 turn mode, as day-by-day get get boring, plus 7 day is a little harder since it makes it more difficult to take advantage of the web ads. On day-by-day mode, web ads can really make a difference, but on 7 day mode they only work on day 1, and not for the other 6 days, minimizing their advantage.
