  1. For Pres Inifinity, anyway we can hide the vote estimates when playing popular vote? It’s somewhat distracting and less realistic, and I rather focus on the percentages.

  2. Is it also possible to have a primary election night appear just like the general election results night?

  3. I’ve had a problem with a user scenario (1996) where the GOP convention doesn’t appear to have happened and the game has entered the general election with several Republican candidates in it. There was (supposed to be) a brokered convention although, playing as Gramm, I had enough endorsements to get over the line.

  4. Had a dive into the editor and I might hazard a guess that this occurs because the GE start date is before the Republican convention dates (which aren’t right in any case for 96).

  5. “For Pres Inifinity, anyway we can hide the vote estimates when playing popular vote? It’s somewhat distracting and less realistic, and I rather focus on the percentages.”

    Feedback noted – thanks for this.

  6. @Rich re primary nights,

    This would require major modifications to the game, so it’s not high on the priorities list.

  7. @Will,

    I take it you are referring to a user designed 1996 campaign? If so, yes, that might do it. Modify the start date to after the GOP convention in your Editor, and that might fix it.

  8. Would it be possible to add an exit poll to PMI UK? It’s a staple of our election coverage and would be a nice add.

  9. i also agree with @LegolasRedbard that an exit poll would be a good addition to PMI UK the Exit polls usually come out at 10PM after the polls close. I think it would give a bit more of an edge to election night if it was added.
