  1. What would constitute a a fundraising score of a 4 or a 5? Clinton has raised more money than any candidate, ever. Her fundraising totals are almost double that of sanders and more than thrice that of Bush. Yet they are all at “3.” Looking at what the candidates this year have raised versus their peers & other years: Clinton should be a 5. Or at the very least a 4.

  2. Endorsers > Northern Mariana Islands > Eloy Inos -> Ralph Torres.

  3. Is there a way to incorporate ideology/voter blocs when determining who wins a state? The past couple games I have played, Kasich has been able to win 60% of the vote in Iowa and then gets smoked in New Hampshire something that would be impossible in real life as there are not enough “establishment voters” in Iowa to allow that to happen, but on the other hand any establishment-oriented candidate would be expected to significantly outperform in New Hampshire as opposed to Iowa.

    Also this would make more sense in Bloomberg-Sanders-Trump scenario as Bloomberg should be able to take a lot of moderate voters due to the polarizing major party candidates

  4. Also to add to that is there a way to model elections based on ethnic group as well? So like certain attributes or policies can help and hurt with different ethnic groups and affect their turnout (immigration comes to mind). Or certain Presidential Candidates will outperform or underperform with different ethnic/voter groups (Trump outperforms with high-school educated whites and Rubio outperforms with Hispanics etc.)
