@admin_270I'm finalizing my NJ Governor 2017 and have run into a problem. Normally we get the region percentages from the previous election. But 2013 was an overwhelming victory for Christie, and doesn't follow the election patterns. Usually when I simulate that race, it's a close GOP win. Now the latest poll is 51-35 Dem but when I turn General Election polls on, the opposite happens. The game sets ALL regions to roughly that range, while there are some deep red counties within the state. Even though I'm using popular vote, I still think that the region percentages are important. So in other words, the general election polls seem to have too strong an effect. I even experimented (with polls on) with taking one region and setting the region issue positions to exactly those of the GOP candidate. Still this normally Republican county went higher for the Democrat candidate then average. It's tough figuring out how the polls work, and how the initial in-game percentages are calculated.
With the upcoming popular vote feature due to be released soon, I want to gauge interest in whether people would like a scenario of the 2012 Serbian Presidential Election. This election saw the continued battle between former Serbian Radical Party candidate Tomislav Nikolic and the more pro-western Boris Tadic. Nikolic won at the 4th attempt (one election was annulled for not having a high enough turnout). I've worked on this as a personal project but it never felt ready due to the electoral college system. However a base version could be released quickly should there be interest or at least screenshots. The 2017 election is getting quite interesting as well and could be a good scenario also.
