Yeah...the Democrats really need some help.  I've been running some test matches between the candidates out there, and most races just turn into '88, '80, or '84-style blowouts.


Wow...I lowered the Republican "how established" to 1, and they're still winning. 

I just replayed Bartlett v. Punching Bag, and Bartlett only won by 7.


For some odd reason, Punching Bag does better when his party is less established.  Will have to check this with real candidates....


Update:  Paradoxically, having Republicans at 5 and Democrats at 4 is seeming to be a good option...

You are on my team as well. It is funny how close Punching Bag came to beating Senor Reese. I lost Florida. I can't believe it!!

Maybe you're right...

That's just odd.

I'm very glad to be in a group with the D punching bag, and i'm sure there will be some interest in the two Phil vs. Hugh games-I think you did that on purpose Wink thanks for running this. brownie points probably forthcoming soon Smiley

Josh, you're already in the game.  You're seeded ninth, and got placed in Group D.


And, Ben, if you want to make up a fake Democrat, be my guest...PM me your stats within the next day or so, I'll run your game last.
