  3. McConnell (of course), Cruz, Scott (FL), Johnson, Portman, Lee (Senate Scenario) Warren, Bennet, Whitehouse, Schumer, Sanders, Klobuchar, Stabenow, Brown, Shaheen, Tester(?). I dunno. What is your criteria (i.e., do they have to be in a seat that's up or not?)? Because if it's literally anyone (like in the 2020 POTUS scenario), then we could go for Biden/Trump/Pence/Harris as choices as well. But if it's seats up/those not up-that knind of thing-options become limited for each scenario. Which I actually kind of like. Makes it so that you're not playing as Obama every 2 years lol

  4. No way to do this currently (outside of creating a state-based campaign).

  5. OK, ads now use the same CPs system as polls. So if you are creating more ads than your Ads Strength, it costs 1 CP per ad.

  6. Making the leaders the "actual" senate/house leaders would also make the US games more like the UK games. Nice change.

  8. Considering making Congress Infinity a bit more leader focused. For ex., in 2020 instead of the NRSC leader Todd Young, it would be Senate leader Mitch McConnell as leader in the Senate 2020 campaign. I think this is a) more engaging, as people tend not to know who the NRSC leader (in this case) is, and b) more realistic - the Senate leader probably has more influence than the NRSC Chair. In addition to the cosmetic change (name), there might be more possibilities opened up in terms of leader actions (fundraisers, interviews, policy speech are the likely ones).

  9. Oddly, true. Biden is the most establishment president we’ve had since the first Bush. Trump is now the establishment of the GOP that he recreated. Cassidy, Hogan, Kasich, Romney, etc (the “good ones”) are now the outsiders.

  10. A number of Trump's supporters do seem to be people who don't like politicians and the establishment - left or right.

  15. Trump will do way better with these random republicans refusing to back him because it gives him something to fight against. Despite all the media proclamations for 4 years, Trump's GOP base is outstandingly loyal to him. 94% of Republicans voted for him, up from 92% in 2016.

  16. Well, that's easy. For Senior GOP leaders, I guess you could just look up "Top Republicans/Dems in the Seant/House". I mean, i'd love to go around stumping for GOP members I like as Romney and ignore everyone else-but that's a weird tangent. As stated before, Scott from Florida is apparantly a "top" GOP official or something? I don't really know, I just know some of the big names.

  17. @Supreme Incompetent Leader For example in the 2020 House, for the Republicans the two obvious options would be McCarthy and Jordan.

  18. Criteria is people who could be leader for their respective parties in the Senate. McConnell and Schumer are defaults. Any other Senators that were talked about as serious possibilities at the time?

  20. Budget bill to nowhere! https://www.nytimes.com/2021/10/15/climate/clean-energy-program-manchin.html#commentsContainer The most powerful part of President Biden’s climate agenda — a program to rapidly replace the nation’s coal- and gas-fired power plants with wind, solar and nuclear energy — will likely be dropped from the massive budget bill pending in Congress, according to Congressional staffers and lobbyists familiar with the matter. --- I'd be stunned if progressives don't just torpedo and sink all of Washington down with it now. No infrastructure, no budget bill is happening.

  21. Yeah, I think you're right. I was initially glad they banned him, but I admit that was more of an emotional thing. After a couple of days, I opposed the banning, mainly because I'd rather Trump shoot himself in the foot. However, he was banned and still lost, so who knows if Twitter helped in that or if Biden would have won by a larger margin with Trump on Twitter.

  22. Might make the ads system like the new polls system, in that you can make upto Ads Strength number of ads simultaneously without it costing any CPs. But for each one above that threshold, it costs 1 CP.

  23. Definitely reducing his national profile and impact. Completely possible it might actually be helping his re-election prospects. If Twitter believes that, they might reinstate him.

  24. I agree with this part. I wouldn't want a Democratic version of Trump either. So Twitter might be helping him by banning him.

  27. Congress Infinity 2022 from Beta -> first official release is close. Slow but steady progress on it. A few more tweaks to the UI required.

  28. Just some quick thoughts that I had on how Democrats could turn it around: 1. Biden and Democrats need to keep positive and calm over COVID policy and economic reports. Things like, "We got this" and "Everything is going according to plan," and "You'll see improvement before midterms. Just you see." Things like that will at least give the allusion that they got this under control. COVID is the key thing keeping Biden's approval low now that Afghanistan has kind of faded off. 2. Biden needs to score a blunder-free foreign policy success before early voting Midterms. China is the big newsmaker. Score some sort of major deal with them. Biden needs to have this in the works yesterday and I hope he does. 3. Biden and the Democratic-controlled Congress must pass their agenda before Midterms. Infrastructure must pass. Financial assistance for the pandemic must pass. Both are popular. Make it known that Trump would not prioritize these. 4. Democrats must win the VA Gov election to stifle any momentum for Republicans. Send all the superstars to VA, especially the VA Beach area which is independent heavy. 5. Consistently make it about Trump. Consistently bring up the Jan 6th Insurrection. 6. Provoke Trump into announcing a run for the presidency before midterms so as to make the midterms about Trump and not Biden's approval. A good way to provoke Trump is to consistently call him a coward or a waffler because he hasn't announced yet. Antagonize the hell out of him. Compare him to a teenage girl. "You know, Donald? The fat one-term president that tried to launch a coup? Yeah, him. He's all girl." Provoking Trump will also likely mean DeSantis and others won't run. We then know who Biden will face and it will be someone with more baggage than Biden. 7. Biden needs to announce an exciting post-midterm agenda. Things that matter to his base, to Progressives, and to independents. Don't worry about satisfying people that are going to vote Trump regardless. 8. Democrats should also focus on flooding Florida with Democratic star power. If DeSantis loses in Florida (will be tough to beat him), then he likely won't run for president, regardless if Trump runs or not. Focus #2 should be Texas. Abbott is more unpopular than Trump or Biden. 9. Biden needs more of a social media presence. Perhaps three FaceTime videos (or something like that) a week. In these, he should seem confident, empathetic, hopeful, nice, and in charge. 10. Pro-Biden or Anti-Trump political opinion writers need to flood the news sources with articles and headlines that show where and how things are improving under Biden. Let the candidates point blame at Republicans. Let the news show that Biden's administration is doing its job. Had some other ideas, but thought 10 was enough. I'm curious as to what you think, specifically, would increase Democrat odds in 2022 and in 2024.

  29. That's because we are becoming more and more focused on human rights and the environment. It's also probably because more and more presidents and candidates seem to lack integrity. Carter was also relatively non-interventionist compared to all other Cold War presidents, and we are in a period where people want to be more non-interventionist. Carter comes off as ahead of his time. This is my rationale as to why he is rising.
