Do Platforms Matter in PI?

Recommended Posts

I just don't know if platforms matter to win primaries or general election in PI. So I want to know your opinions and evidence that they do matter or not in PI.   I know somebody here said recently that he won as Clinton in a landslide because he/she shifted the platform to appeal to more voters, but still I don't see any evidence of this in my personal experience.   I have been playing this game for too long, and I still don't have any evidence or suggestion that the platform matter. 

I don't understand, in my scenarios of 2016, why I am winning North Carolina as a Democrat with as bigger margin than Virginia. Is it a platform thing?

Platforms give you Power bonuses or penalties when campaign on a given issue to the degree your position on that issue aligns with a region's center. This can easily be swamped by other factors, but if you're in a close match they can give you a significant edge.

If we say we have Gun Control issue on Low, if you campaign with it can it change to medium or high?

I wish there was a way to make the platforms matter even more. Although, I haven't done much of an investigation to see how much they influence the elections.

Yes, campaigning on an issue causes the profile to increase.

and the profile increase affects votes? for example: if I campaign heavily for Environment and from Low reaches Very High, I gained votes?
