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

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

Or maybe even Lamar Alexander (IIRC, the GOP hates him a lot for his Bi-Partisanship, especially the Tea Party members, who practically control the GOP by now and they threatened to primary him in 2014)

If you want to be an independent, here are my suggestions, JH. I doubt that there better choices that aren't celebrities or oddities. If you want to be an underdog, Bill Walker as an independent is your best bet.

What time exactly? I don't really keep track of time. Only the amount of days I got.
