No matter what anyone tells me, I just can't see Rand winning or getting at least 2nd place in SC, Paul is a bad fit to the southern conservative states, that being said, I don't think he'll be last place there, Portman probably will.

Endorsements do matter, but not as much as campaign quality.

Agreed. If you have an endorsement from the President himself but you run a sucky campaign, you'll be running into a brick wall with voters and getting knock backed hard.

This is how I think it will turn out for Republicans:

Ted Cruz: 1st in Iowa, 4th in New Hampshire, 2nd in South Carolina and 3rd in Nevada

Rob Portman: 3rd in Iowa, 1st in New Hampshire, 4th in South Carolina and 1st in Nevada

Bobby Jindal: 2nd in Iowa, 5th in New Hampshire, 1st in South Carolina and 5th in Nevada

Rand Paul: 4th in Iowa, 2nd in New Hampshire, 3rd in South Carolina and 2nd in Nevada

Jim Mattis: 5th in Iowa, 3rd in New Hampshire, 5th in South Carolina and 4th in Nevada

Agreed. Although, not sure what I am doing wrong exactly. I don't play these types of campaign games often. Any tips?

You're best bet is to continuously state how you're going to implement your ideas and what they are. If possible and needed, defend them. Don't rely on surrogates, fight to show everyone how you stand.

I think your running a good campaign but there are just not that many libertarian Republicans in the party and you are focused too much on youth who usually don't vote Republican or even vote at all

So I essentially need to outreach towards different voters. I think that's probably best.

Yeah, talk less about social issues and more about fiscal issues like debt

I’ll take these tips too! Good advice. I definitely feel like I could use some of these. It’s my first real campaign as well.

Content is definitely a big part of it. Detail and effort go a long way in these games. The ones who do the best tend to be the ones who put the most effort into their posts.

Jeb Bush is a republican, and Carter is a former president, and so is Bush.

While I am unsure on their chances, Jeb would not be the first person to be in one party, only to run under a third. George Wallace was a democrat who went to a third party in 68, teddy did it in 1912, and both Carter and daddy bush only had one term so could still run.

Well, for realisms sake, I am going to say that Jeb Bush is only available as a republican.

As I have said, no. All of those figures are major alignments with a major party. Realism is valued in this game.

If possible, Jason can play as Wesley Clark, Jill Stein, Gary Johnson, Joe Lieberman, Bill Walker, or Jesse Ventura
