How about having pro-abortion Democrats protesting at a rally, or throwing tomatoes at you or something. I think that would sound more active. 

sounds good I'll switch it

Also, @vcczar, we should be allowed to choose at least two endorsements to receive at the beginning of the campaign. (Senators, Governors, and Representatives only, and they have to be in your party. No NRA endorsements, Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, etc.)

Sound good?

If we did get to choose two, I'd choose Rep. Trey Gowdy and Sen. Marco Rubio.

@ThePotatoWalrus

I'll probably allow people to have endorsers lean their direction, but not all-out endorse them. I'm sure multiple people want Rubio and Gowdy as well, so you'll have to fight for them. 

Also, can you pick a specific campaign promise for your event that you will pull back on. I want the unique news item to be a realistic news item and it sounds a little vague right now.

@jvikings1

I think you should probably change the event about the endorsement of the Libertarian Party, since the Libertarian people will be surrogates in the scenario. You could replace the party with a prominent and respected Libertarian that isn't already a possible surrogate.

Blue - MiddlePolitical
Green - Caleb
Dark Blue - Sunny
Purple - Jnewt

This is how I would see the Democratic Primaries going. I'm not basing mine off of balance and every one has a chance like @ThePotatoWalrus. this one is a bit more true to the game, with perhaps a slight bit of emphasis on platform positioning. The first state I still see going to myself, as Iowa has a thing for the more conservative, white, often religious candidate. New Hampshire is unsurprisingly Jnewt's to win, just because it can be a more liberal opening state. South Carolina no doubt goes to Sunny, but unfortunately that is where it ends for his campaign due to the stronger presence of The Middle Political in the same areas he would excel in. 

Super Tuesday and the resulting momentum boosts give more prominence to Middle Political and myself, but he being slightly more left than I as well as having inroads with more ethnic groups eventually leads him to victory without the need for a contested convention. Jnewt sticks around long enough to win areas in his comfort zone, but not much more than that. 

The remaining candidates were either fringe candidates with little chance of winning without player intervention, focused on later states and would drop out before hitting their prime, or just faced too much competition in the area they needed to excel in.

The Republican primary is a two man race from the very beginning. Blue for Conservative Elector, Green for Johnny, and a neon green for Jvikings. 

The most realistic conservative candidate wins Iowa, Conservative Elector. Johnny rides momentum and wins expectedly in New Hampshire. It becomes a two man race even before Super Tuesday, and after that it's essentially a Conservative vs Establishment, except that I'm giving a lot more to Conservative Elector than perhaps he'd get IRL because the game's momentum would help him ride to victory in the later states, but I think Johnny would still narrowly beat him out for the nomination.

Again, some candidates were simply unable to win a state. Jvikings wins only one, and I'm giving that to the game's wonkiness about dropping out late. Reagan and Walrus are likely to have very low starting percentages and radical platforms, leading to no states being won by the very much fringe candidates (Think 1/10th the support of George Pataki 2016). Dallas and other Southerners face great Southern competition from the other forum members, but I'm assuming that momentum from Iowa and South Carolina will lead Conservative Elector to be the only candidate with strong conservative values left by the end of March.

Why don't we make your speech on economics more specific, ""______ speech is well received at the Harvard Economics Forum"

OK. A speech about lowering income tax for the bottom 1/3 is well received at said forum.

I hope this is the case :) However I could 100% see @vcczar atleast taking Bernie sanders style states such as VT and UT

My platform isn't radical. I could see myself doing well in funamentalist conservative states like Oklahoma, Utah, Idaho, and the Northern South. Politically, I'm slightly to the left of Cruz, and I hold all conservative values, but I won't impose any social conservatism on them. Like Kasich, I think the Republican Party should move on from the gay marriage issue. I wouldn't pass any laws against it. The only thing that I would ban is abortion. My platform is identical to Rubio's, even on immigration.

If it were a graph:

1. Rick Santorum/ @Reagan04
2. Ted Cruz
3. Rick Perry
4. Me
