    Looks great. Couple things:
    Kasich leads in Ohio, but is at 0.9% in this scenario.
    Also, Huckabee is only at 5% in Arkansas. Though there is a definite lack of data, I still think he’d probably be higher than that (maybe like 10-15%?)

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Please note starting %s change with start dates – I presume you’re talking about Jan. 1st start dates.

    Re Huckabee, the latest polling data available on,_2016

    is an Overtime Politics poll, from December 2015. Unfortunately, the poll doesn’t include Huckabee in their list of candidates, so he would be in the ‘Other’ 8% data. Before that, you have to go all the way back to August, where he was at 21%.

    Might put him in at 15% for Jan. and Oct. 1st.

    As for Kasich, the latest poll is a Quinnipiac from Oct., and Kasich’s at 13%, which is what he’s set at for the Oct. 1st start. I’ll probably set him a bit higher for Jan. 1st.

    Thanks for this sneak-peek, Anthony! 🙂

    Awesome! Wasn’t sure on the Huckabee numbers, but the Kasich numbers were confusing.

    2 more things I’ve noticed when playing this scenario in the past:

    Is there a way to somehow keep percentages stable in early states? Often frontrunners can go down to about 1% [Trump in Iowa has a couple times.]

    Also, Texas has a tendency to see gigantic downturns in momentum. In the past, I have had 3+ momentum in Super Tuesday states but seen -20+ in Texas. Is there a reason for this?

  6. anthony_270admin January 21, 2016 at 2:35 pm #


    It’s difficult to speak to the momentum questions without knowing exactly what was happening in the game(s) in question.

    The frontrunner %s issue will be addressed once Favorability has been implemented, which is the next major feature on the to-do list.

  7. Jonathan January 21, 2016 at 3:09 pm #

    I haven’t checked, but have you added all the candidates as possible endorsers? For instance, non-sitting politicians such as Perry, Santorum and Hillary Clinton.

  8. Nick January 21, 2016 at 3:59 pm #

    Just in time for the blizzard. Excellent.

  9. John Doe January 21, 2016 at 4:03 pm #


    I suspect one reason Texas sees high negative momentum at times is because the state is so big and delegate-rich: this can lead to 4-5 candidates campaigning there in the space of two days (especially when there are 10+ in the field).

    The result, if there’s a clear front-runner who’ll take fire from most candidates, is to drive his/her momentum down very quickly through attacks while barnstorming.

    I think the same effect might be to blame for the way front-runners’ support plummets in Iowa as everyone attacks them. Hopefully the favorability update fixes this – if not, maybe it’s an argument for reducing the power of barnstorming events for candidates with little support. To take one example, I doubt an attack from Jim Gilmore while barnstorming would hurt Ted Cruz in Iowa as much as a super PAC hitting him with about 5,000 ratings points’ worth of ad time.

    No running candidates added as endorsers in this update.

  11. Rophil January 21, 2016 at 4:19 pm #

    If you put Huckabee at 20% and 10% in Arkansas, I think it should be the same way for other candidates: Rand Paul should get 10% in Kentucky in October and January, Ben Carson the same in Maryland, Walker in Wisconsin, …

  12. anthony_270admin January 21, 2016 at 4:32 pm #


    Thanks for this – I’ll add those in as well.

  13. Clayton January 21, 2016 at 5:29 pm #

    I keep getting bugs every time I select polls for a different year than 2016.
    Why is this happening. Will this be fixed on the full release.

  14. anthony_270admin January 21, 2016 at 5:33 pm #


    Are you getting an error in the Editor? If so, how exactly do you generate the error?

  15. anthony_270admin January 21, 2016 at 5:34 pm #


    Replicated. Next to-do.

  16. anthony_270admin January 21, 2016 at 6:50 pm #


    Fixed in latest internal. Will be putting out another version, probably later today. Thanks for this feedback.

  17. anthony_270admin January 21, 2016 at 7:35 pm #

    Latest version, 2.2.3, available for Windows. See link in post.

  18. Rophil January 22, 2016 at 4:18 am #

    It is a really good update, thanks!

  19. Dallas January 22, 2016 at 7:52 am #

    @Anthony very good update, very much appreciated!

  20. Dylan January 22, 2016 at 12:46 pm #


    First thanks for the sneak peek of this update, and so far it is terrific.

    One bug i noticed, is when I tried editing the poll numbers for the Libertarian Party and Green Party, I was met with an error. Just wanted to raise this awareness. The polls for the Primaries however are working fine though.

  21. Bubbles January 22, 2016 at 1:13 pm #

    I downloaded the new update and each time I try to play a GE campaign I get “Access violation at address 004CDC80 in module ‘PI.exe’. Read of address 00000018.”

  22. anthony_270admin January 22, 2016 at 2:51 pm #


    Thanks for this – replicated and fixed in the latest internal.

  23. anthony_270admin January 22, 2016 at 2:53 pm #


    Thanks for this – replicated.

  24. anthony_270admin January 22, 2016 at 4:09 pm #


    Fixed in latest internal.

  25. anthony_270admin January 22, 2016 at 4:10 pm #

    Note that general election poll numbers currently are not used by the game. It just uses the numbers specified on the Editor Regions > Percentages screen.
