The United States is the battlefield of the Political Machine, where the two candidates will vie for voters!

Overview[edit | edit source]

  • Besides their Electoral votes, States have other key factors that come into play on election night. It's the candidate's job to ensure that, come election night, their numbers are higher than their opponents in these key areas:
    • Awareness: This is the percentage of the population that feels they REALLY know about a candidate. The higher someone's awareness value, the higher their turnout.
    • Approval Ratings: A basic snapshot percentage of who would vote for which candidate. Also listed is the percentage of 'independent' voters, so as long as that number is high, a losing candidate still has a fighting chance.
    • Wealth: While this number doesn't affect how citizens vote, a state's wealth is very important while campaigning. States with a higher wealth will bring in higher 'Fund Raising' donations, which is important when a candidate's war chest dips into the red. (see Raising Funds)
    • Top Issues: Voters in every state will feel differently about the issues. What may be of high importance on the East Coast may mean little to voters on the West Coast. Once a candidate has raised their awareness in a state, knowing and manipulating the issues becomes their ticket to victory.
