  1. Thanks! Do you have an idea of what an optimal number of candidates is?
  2. Im not sure if this is a known problem. The last version I had was right before the subscription model. DOing the 2020 campaign and each turn takes forever. Like, unplayably long. My computer isnt brand new but is usually able to handle most games. Is there a max number of candidates running you recommend? im running the regular President Infinity Windows, not sneak peak
  3. Marco Rubio to the GOP side. George P Bush potentially, should he ever seek a higher political position than he currently has. Dems could have Sherrod Brown as well.
  4. I started a 2020 playthrough the other day and set Biden, Clinton, and Sanders to "maybe" seeking. I am playing as a third party. I noticed, in the democrat primary, That the 3 top polling people (biden, clinton, sanders) are all marked as not seeking, but continue to be polled. Is this an intended feature? Makes it hard to see how the party is leaning, since the top declared democrat has something like 9% of the vote. Its a long ways out from the primary, I imagine most of those currently on a not seeking candidate are basically undecided, but still a tad confusing
  5. I've played this game a bit and really like it. However, I am still struggling to get good enough to play on medium or hard difficulties, or playing as non front runners really at all. My current strategy is to barnstorm 3 times in one day in a state, do some issue knowledge/debate prep as well, then the next day in the same state to hold 3 rallies on separate issues, or 2 and a issue speech. Sometimes, also using this time to blast the state's front runner. I try to build up a good base of nationwide radio ads, start running in states where I have good momentum, and then doing TV ads closer t
  6. this is a hard thing, since there are some trump actions that I sort of approve of, but dont approve of the way he does it. I approve of him ramping up the crackdown on ISIS, but dont believe he will be able to help the area obtain any lasting peace or stability. I approve of using twitter to communicate to the public, but I dont approve with the nature of how trump tweets. I approve of withdrawing from syria, since I never wanted us involved, but still feel bad since the syrian government is terrible. I support some deregulation to encourage growth (especially of new or small businesses, or t
  7. Animated TV show about a depressed horse. I forget the exact context, but at one point someone lists that as a famous Ben Franklin quote
  8. Its a Bojack Horseman quote.
  9. At this point, I feel that the investigation is unlikely to prove that Trump himself colluded, or that the Russian Government directly colluded. I imagine the worst we will see is evidence that individuals with indirect ties to the Russian Government communicated to individuals with ties to the trump campaign (as we have already seen a bit of), and that several individuals will go down for it or for other crimes uncovered in the process. However, I would be surprised if they ever find proof that A). trump knew or B). He personally ordered it or was involved. Depending on how severe, it will de

    I agree. I am new to the game and am getting the hang of it, but I feel like I still lack a core understanding of all the mechanics, what exactly they do, and also feel like I am missing some potential functions I should know.
  11. I'd love to see Warren in the white house, and politically am closest to a sanders/warren ticket. While we would gain votes from those who voted 3rd party over clinton, we wouldnt likely pick up a lot of centrist leaning republicans, or never trumpers. Biden probably has the best bet to beat trump of all of these, and Klobuchar could potentially mobilize dems and centrists in the great lakes region which went trump in 2016 (I know little of her, except that she in from the north midwest). Kennedy would not mobilize progressives, or non-east coast centrists, so I cant imagine him winning. A Bi

    North Korea war

    I mean, its impossible to know. Right now, it feels like NK is looking to move toward diplomacy and away from trying to nuke hawaii. However, if talks go poorly, I could see Trump making this "his war" sometime before the midterms, to rally conservative, "patriot", warhawk mentality.
  13. I wish I had kept better notes during the run. This was my first ever full game on PI, after a few false starts. I played on easy and feel I should have won by a higher margin, though it speaks to the games difficulty that I couldn't do as well as obama irl. Clinton started with a considerable lead in the primaries. 30% of the vote was her floor, but she was never able to gain much above that. Biden won the first 3 primaries to emerge as a surprise third place candidate, routinely picking up delegates in each primary. He wasnt able to rise above 20% or so at his most popular nati
