10 thoughts on “Crowdsourcing: Scott Walker 2016 and Deval Patrick 2016”

  1. Walker CR and R on most issues. Obviously R on unions. On attributes, 3 or 4 on everything except charisma maybe a 3 or 2 on charisma. Polls well in safe R states and mid-west.

  2. Deval Patrick-Probably left on every thing except…

    Government Spending-CL

    Attributes-3 in everything except…
    Charisma-4 (Possibly, I don’t know. He seems like a candidate with the ‘potential’ to be charismatic once he’s in debates and on the campaign trail, but it’s hard to judge off of how he has been right now).


    Probably 4% in most states, with 10-15% in Mass and 5-10% in Vermont, Connecticut, New York, NH, DC.

  3. I’d use Warren as a template for Patrick. They would be as strong as one another in MA. I’d say Warren would be slightly ahead nationally, but Patrick would be doing slightly better in states with a high African-American population, like DC, MS, SC and GA.

    Walker would be strong in his state and fairly decent in the Tornado States (NE, KS, IA, MO, OK). He’d probably do less well in large states. Overall, he’d probably be scoring about as high, or slightly higher than Sandoval nationally.

  4. Hi Andres,

    The idea with web ads is that they’re released on to the web – that’s the first turn. After that, whether people watch them or not is based on ‘media coverage’ – whether they catch on or not. In the game, that is represented by news articles that can be generated by the web ads, which a player can then spin to keep the media coverage going.

    In terms of game play, the reason is that web ads were too powerful.

  5. Based off of “on the issues” and wikipedia:
