2020 Board Game Idea

I'm afraid there are a couple who've thrown their hats in the ring (I don't know their polling numbers at all, though) who, if they won the Democratic nomination, I'm not sure I could get behind them anymore than I could have behind Clinton in 2016. Gabbard and Avanetti (I think was that horrible lawyer's name) come to mind off hand.

Avenatti would have been hard, but even the worst Democrat is more likely than a Republican to select progressive or  liberal judges and enforced policies preferable to left-leaning voters. I’m not sure what the principle is of not voting if it ushers the country intro a right-Ward direction on social policies. I’ve always been able to understand fiscal conservatism, even if I disagree with it. I don’t accept social conservatism. I would vote for Avennati over Trump with the idea that he isn’t going to clone himself and fill the offices with his clones. That said, Avennati would be my last choice among Democrats listed as potential candidates. For this same reason I don’t fault Republicans that voted for Trump on the basis that he’s a Republican. I fault people that think he’ll be a good president, good for America, or that he’s a good Christian man, has high integrity, that he’ll drain the swamp, etc.

Oh ok. You said something about only one state, so I got confused. I'll pick Millennials in Missouri.

Yes, I have been working on a way to determine how many states and how taking hits work. So we're going to do a 3:1 ratio. For every 3 states, the number of states you can use 1 point on increases by one. So for Super Tuesday, 12 States: 4 States per point. For Super Tuesday II, 5 States: 1.7 States per point, and we round that up to two. Also, it does have to be the same demographic, think of campaigning but in reverse, so you can do Millennials in MO and NC or Progressives in NC and MO but you can't mix and match.

Seeing as @ThePotatoWalrus has not responded, I will take his move for him. He will take a hit on Libertarians in Illinois and North Carolina. He also takes a hit among Moderates in North Carolina and Missouri.

Super Tuesday II results will now be calculated.

@Reagan04 @vcczar I had an idea that I wanted to throw out there just to see if anyone thought it was alright. While the Republican field is anticipated to be low, the Democrats' is supposed to be big. I had an idea that if there's like 5 or less players you pick 1 Republican and 2 Democrats. That way it'd make it more realistic. Just an idea.

CRUZ CLINCHES THE NOMINATION! By surpassing the needed 1,240 delegates, Ted Cruz has become the official presumptive nominee of the Republican Party for the 2020 Presidential election. Trump is STRONGLY encouraged to drop out as it is mathematically impossible to become the nominee.

Up Next: Pre-Western Tuesday Debate (AZ, ID, UT, AK, HI, WA)

Sorry for not responding been busy.

Trump drops out and endorses Bernie (I think IRL he'd be too salt to endorse a dude who beat him, not trying to throw shade at @Reagan04 lol. Thanks for handling my stuff btw bro.)

O'Rourke ponders dropping out for the 4th consecutive month or so. He makes an offer to Joe Biden, that he will drop out and endorse him if he accepts O'Rourke on the ticket for VP should he be nominated. If this is refused, O'Rourke will take his 1 pt hit among Hispanics in ID, UT, AK, HI, if it is a four state hit, otherwise just any of those.
