Update on the polling feature

The polling feature now works in conjunction with the Select Campaign Screen. Here is the July 1st, 2015 start for Republicans.


The starting %s were automatically calculated based on national poll data for the campaign, and the candidates were then sorted based on the %s. You can see that Bush is clinging to a one-point lead at this point.

Here’s Oct. 1st, 2015.


This was near the top of Fiorina’s ascent. You can see Bush is no longer in the top 4, and Carson is in second place.

Finally, the Jan. 1st, 2016 start, using (temporarily) the latest Reuters poll.


Again, the %s and ranking of the candidates were all done automatically. The manual ordering of candidates now only matters for the general election, or where there’s no polling data that has been inputted.

    It really looks great! Will a similar system be created for 2008 and 2012 campaigns?

    Will polling also be included for general elections?

    Yes, polling data will probably be added to 2012 and 2008 once I revamp those campaigns. Probably won’t be until 2016.

    Yes, polling is enabled for general election polls (both generic and for specific candidates). However, it’s not shown on this screen since the specific leaders aren’t chosen at this point, so the numbers would change based on who’s chosen.

    Wow, This looks great, Would be awesome to see this implemented on pm infinity uk also as it would help when individual constituency or council ward polling data is sparse or not available. This could lead to some great custom scenarios in the future. Great work as usual guys.

    Yes, the plan is to add it to PMI UK eventually.
