Since this election doesn't seem to exist in scenario form, I'll take a crack at it. This is my first P4E+P scenario, so I may need some help. Democratic Candidates will be: -Bill Clinton (far ahead

I'm going to mail it to TheorySpark and see what they make of it. Anyone know the appropriate e-mail address for that?

Okay, I've tried a bunch of tactics and it's either overly hard as the GOP or Clinton, never a middle ground. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Have you added in news stories? Those are usually small pluses or minuses, but enough can help even things a little if their more pointed at negativity overall against Clinton or the GOP.

As I mentioned in the other thread I currently have, this for some reason doesn't work. I also tried it in the 1996 scenario in question to no avail. There is something in the coding itself apparently that makes the electorate rigid, or at least seems to increase the percentage of the voters who are committed to that Party (not candidate).

I am certain it has something to do with the number of candidates that are run in the primaries of that particular party; I ran McCain as the only Republican once in the 2008 Wonked Edition Scenario. Normally the Republicans get hammered and reduced to places like Idaho, Utah, Nebraska, and Oklahoma (and strangely Florida). Under these new conditions however, McCain barely budged and easily won with over three hundred electoral votes.

Thankfully, I think this problem only becomes prevalent from the Primary stages. However, I would be curious to know if TheorySpark has some kind of solution to the problem or even knows of it. I may have brought it up before, but I am not sure.
