  1. It's been a while. It took me a long time to get an .xml editor that actually allowed me to see the data. Anyway, I'm running into trouble changing parties for local candidates; for instance, changing Mark Begich to a Republican. When I directly change the party id tag to "republican", it works, but I receive an error message in the game when I double-click Alaska like it doesn't recognize it. I also changed the party id tag in percentages.xml... Is there any other place I need to change it in order for it to work correctly? Thanks!
  2. I've been all through there; there's no way to change candidate names or maps, that kind of thing. Or is there, and I haven't found it?
  3. So, how are the edits being done right now? I assume names are simply being changed somewhere in the programming? No one really tells you on here exactly how it's being done.
  4. So would I! I've been waiting for a C4E Scenario Editor ever since it came out!
  5. To see what would happen, I turned the Democrats off completely and played as the Republicans. I clicked on GA and everything was fine, but when I clicked on California, I got an error message that wouldn't go away and I had to shut down the game.
  6. We use RealClearPolitics.com for the most part, a decision that was pretty much decided in this thread. Granted, the admin can do what he wants, but generally, we track RCP and use the RCP average. If RCP doesn't use them then they may not be a credible pollster.
  7. No, thank you for doing so. Mostly what I meant there was that all of the candidates were perfectly correct. Once you get past the few TX races that are close, the rest generally don't have polling. So, I was checking the candidates by that time and they were all correct, which was definitely a phenomenon since most of the states had several changes. This is nothing against admin; they hadn't been checked in a long time and candidates and races changed. I just basically went to Politico and checked the winning candidates. As for polling data, I was pretty much looking only at straight polls,
  8. Wonderful! Sorry, I have been really busy and I haven't had a chance to finish. But I can give you Senate polling numbers for now... I'm throwing the exact percentage, so you can round up or round down as you will. California: Boxer +5.5% Nevada: Reid +0.5% Colorado: Buck +2.4% Florida: Rubio +9.8% New York (Gillibrand): Gillibrand +5.6% Kentucky: Paul +8.4% West Virginia: Manchin +2.0% Pennsylvania: Toomey +6.8% Illinois: Kirk +1.0% Washington: Murray +4.0% Wisconsin: Johnson +8.0% New Hampshire: Ayotte +6.4% Connecticut: Blumenthal +7.5% Missouri: Blunt +6.0% Ohio: Portman +12
  9. SENATE Hawaii: Cam Cavasso is the Republican candidate. Maryland: Eric Wargotz is the Republican candidate. New York (Schumer): Jay Townsend is the Republican candidate. New York (Gillibrand): Joe DioGuardi is the Republican candidate. New Hampshire: Kelly Ayotte is the Republican candidate. Delaware: Christine O'Donnell is the Republican candidate. Wisconsin: Ron Johnson is the Republican candidate. HOUSE WI-1: John Heckenlively (not Paulette Garin) is the Democratic candidate. WI-6: Joe Kallas (not without challenger) is the Democratic candidate. MD-3: Jim Wilhelm (not Kevin Carne
  10. New Hampshire still hasn't been called; but Ovide trails by almost exactly 1,000 points. I suggest not even touching O'Donnell until she actually gets some real polling data because it's likely that her polls will be wildly skewed in both directions before it eventually evens out. DioGuardi and Townsend have won officially; as has Wargotz in Maryland. Pretty much just waiting on NH now...
  11. Alrighty; fresh juicy primaries hot off the presses! Wisconsin Senate: Ron Johnson is the Republican candidate. Delaware Senate: Christine O'Donnell is the Republican candidate. Maryland Senate: Eric Wargotz is leading big; I think it's safe to say that he has won by now. New York Senate (vs. Schumer): Jay Townsend appears to have won the Republican nomination. New York Senate (cs. Gillibrand): Close race between DioGuardi and Malpass... New Hampshire Senate: Ovide Lamontagne leads... still not safe yet... Posting this now with the intention to edit with updates, assuming someone doesn
  12. RCP, indeed, does simply average the other polls. Take Georgia Governor polls - Deal vs. Barnes Three separate pollsters since 8/11: Rasmussen said Deal +9%; Insider Advantage said Deal +4; and SurveyUSA said Deal +11. Anyone remember how to calculate an average? Add the numbers up and then divide by how many numbers there were. 9 + 4 + 11 = 24. 24 / 3 = 8. Guess what! 8 is the RCP average, just as it's the straight average! They didn't skew it at all. Do it with any poll you like; the math adds up.
  13. OR-3: Delia Lopez (not without challenger) is the Republican candidate; the race has no formal polling data. WA-9: Dick Muri (not James Postma) is the Republican candidate; the race has no formal polling data. WA-6: Doug Cloud (not Jesse Young) is the Republican candidate; the race has no formal polling data. NV-2: Nancy Price (not Cynthia Trigg) is the Democratic candidate; the race has no formal polling data. NV-1: Kenneth Wegner (not Craig O. Lake) is the Republican candidate; the race has no formal polling data. UT-2: Morgan Philpot (not R.Neil Walter) is the Republican candidate; the
  14. TN-4: Scott "DesJarlais"; the "J" should be capitalized. TN-8: Has no polling data; but RCP says it leans GOP, not Dem. TN-6: Brett Carter (not George Erdel) is the Democratic candidate; Diane Black (not Jim Tracy) is the Republican candidate; and the race has no polling data. (Likely R) TN-3: John Wolfe (not Paula Flowers) is the Democratic candidate; the race has no polling data. TN-2: Dave Hancock (not without challenger) is the Democratic candidate; the race has no polling data. TN-1: Mike Clark (not without challenger) is the Democratic candidate; the race has no polling. KY-3: Tod
  15. Hunkering down to compare Housie polls, now... (Note: These are straight polls, and most of these races have only one poll on them. Nothing I can do to account for any type of bias, so putting a margin of error in there may be a good idea except for the ones I mark that have an RCP average.) CA-47: Loretta Sanchez is ahead of Van Tran by 2%; not 27% CA-11: David Harmer (not Brad Goehring) is the Republican candidate; and he is 1% ahead (not 4%) CA-44: Bill Hedrick is 3% ahead of Ken Calvert; not 14% OR-5: Kurt Schrader is 8% ahead of Scott Bruun; not 9%. WA-3: Jaime Herrera is 13% ahead
