Phil Bredesen would Leave Nashville and would campaign for the entirety of March in Iowa on his policies before going to the key state of New Hampshire and campaign there.

When we have Endorsements and their people, like a Senator or rep, can we post them giving an endorsement speech?

Sure, but let me post your endorsements next turn so that people know that you are campaigning with someone you are actually endorsed by.

Alright.

With all that campaigning, how is Chris Christie so low?

This is the first Turn, everything does not take effect until turn 2. You'll Begin to see results then.

If it's alright, once the DEM Polls are in, I would like to make a primary prediction. I'll update each prediction per Turn and look at the stats to see how well each Candidate may do.

45% chance for Bredesen Nomination
25% chance for Dayton Nomination
25% chance for Sanders Nomination

I think that Phil Bredesen can carry the south if he can attract enough conservatives and Attack Sanders enough. He may also be able to carry several other conservative states simply because he is a Conservative DEM.

Dayton and Sanders, However, will have a slugfest. They will both be seen as Progressives with Bernie only saying that he's a democratic Socialist. If Dayton can hit him enough times on that, he may be able to focus on Bredesen then. Sanders will just have to appeal to the masses and attempt to get the youth vote. All in all, unless one of the two becomes a strong number two, Bredesen could ride to the Nomination.


37% chance of Cruz Nomination
35% chance of Portman Nomination
20% chance of Paul Nomination

For the Republicans, it might be extremely tight, but Cruz may be able to take enough conservatives and Paul may be able to take enough Libertarians and youth to defeat Portman. Portman, at the same time, will have to attempt to attract all 3 groups and keep the establishment happy with him, which won't be an easy feat. All in all, Portman may be doomed to lose if he doesn't find a way to attract those 3 specific groups and shake off the establishment.



Cruz: 272/46.4%
Bredesen: 266/47.3%

And that's my election Prediction. Honestly, a lot can change from then to now, but at this point, it looks like it'll be Cruz v Bredesen.

Thoughts?

Patrick (and probably Sestak) would be favored in their home states if the're still in the race.

Unless the slush fund is continuesly talked about.

Could we also get polling for South Carolina, Nevada, and Florida for both parties, so we know how each Candidate is doing in those vital early primary states?

Can we do Candidate interviews?

Also, I reccomend writing up the next turn's National and State Polls as well as the debates today so you can post them all at once tomorrow.

Candidate interviews can only be done for candidates over 15% in the national polling, and its one per term.

So someone like Bredesen and Cruz can have interviews and those might boost the Candidate in several Polls?

Why is everyone attacking Patrick? He is at 7% and attack ads hurt the other candidate too sometimes

Politics is a dirty, dirty business. No matter how high or low you are in the Polls, if you have scandals and something to be discussed, then expect to be attacked on it. It'll also be possible that doing such a thing is a Kamikaze move, in which a candidate is going down but they take someone down with them. It can happen, though it's rare.

But why not when later near the caucus and primary so the attacks could be fatal to the campaign

Knock them out quickly. At the same time, Patrick practically left himself wide open. Had he not attacked Bredesen when he was so low in the Polls, then he would've been seen as a better Candidate.

Fu ck it, can I just take Hillary?

They did since it is the same thing except candidates

Maybe you shouldn't play as Hillary at this time. You can choose Gov. John Kasich, Sen. Marco Rubio, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, or Sen. John Edwards, as I don't think anyone wants the hot potato Hillary Clinton had.
