The Campaign Trail Game Has Returned.

Any links to these reddit comments or whatever?

Also, regarding '72 since it was mentioned upthread, McGovern shouldn't normally be able to win even on easy, but it could be cool to at least see if you can do better than McGovern's OTL 23.2% loss

But also, apparently McGovern polled competitively with Nixon when paired with Ted Kennedy as his VP in hypothetical polls. Of course in real life, Kennedy wanted nothing to do with McGovern, but if they made him a running-mate choice anyway, that could potentially be a scenario where one could at least narrowly win as McGovern if they do everything right
Backing this up. Does anyone have a direct link to the expanded game?
 
I don't trust this Brady guy as far as I can throw a congealed mass of his many, many unnecessary comments. Which, for the sake of argument, is not very far.
 
Yeah I looked at the reddit posts and there is nothing there which couldn't have been done on MS Paint or Photoshop

Did you guys figure it out
I've managed to play one game with Goldwater on easy. The real challenge is to not lose big, not to win. There are plenty of bad events happening which demolish your chances, such as the Daisy ad but also others. Still not clear if it's better to be pro-segregation or to come moderate on it. Still I've been able to flip from OTL many traditional GOP states such as Idaho, Wyoming and the Dakotas.
