    President Signs Election Integrity Act w/HML Huffines

    PLAYER NAME Republicans Democrats NAT EV BUS MR ML SJW PRO EN Change 2 2 0 0 0 0 0 0  Definitely geared towards evangelicals and conservatives.

    President Signs Alternative Energy Bills w/Sen. Bloomfield

    PLAYER NAME Republicans Democrats NAT EV BUS MR ML SJW PRO EN Change 0 0 0 2 2 0 0 1  Good standard oil independence freedom speech. Good political strategy. You would have done better among the environmentalists had you not mentioned rolling back Obama's executive orders on this. But it's good.

    Let's Invest in Rural Broadband

    PLAYER NAME Republicans Democrats NAT EV BUS MR ML SJW PRO EN Change 0 0 2 2 2 0 2 2  Strong, strong PR. Rural broadband is an underrated issue and for a cheap investment can have strong returns. This is a strong bill that appeals broadly across the political spectrum.

    Van Horn on Venezuela

    PLAYER NAME Republicans Democrats NAT EV BUS MR ML SJW PRO EN Change 0 0 2 0 0 0 0 -2 Decent sounding speech in support of the President and this is Texas. This is a good speech. -2 from environmental groups, however, for mentioning drilling in ANWR which is hated by them. But BUS groups liked it.

    President Explains Veto

    PLAYER NAME Republicans Democrats NAT EV BUS MR ML SJW PRO EN Change 0 0 2 0 0 0 0 0  This is a highly nuanced speech that was probably statesmanlike. You vetoed a Republican Senator's bill and laid out coherent national security reasons. This is especially applauded by business groups. Venezuela, eh, is an issue that isn't on many people's radar.

    Parker Endorses Macmillan

    PLAYER NAME Republicans Democrats NAT EV BUS MR ML SJW PRO EN Change 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 It was a bit terse and tactiturn. In fact, too terse and tactiturn to make much of an impact, even though you're the outgoing Vice President. It sounded unenthused too. But your're a darlinbg of evangelicals so it helped a little there. +1 to D-Mac too.

    Ward: Better Together

    PLAYER NAME Republicans Democrats NAT EV BUS MR ML SJW PRO EN Change 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Everyone likes a good bipartisan spiel. You're now the Democratic Presidential nominee and you're clearly trying to appeal to the center. So this is a good talking point in your favor that you cut a deal with the outgoing Republican President on health care.

    Conway on Super Tuesday Results

    PLAYER NAME Republicans Democrats NAT EV BUS MR ML SJW PRO EN Change 1 2 1 1 So, this is a speech geared towards EV and to try to undermine D-Mac's BUS and MR standing. For that, I gave him points among these groups. It's a very well thought out speech and a coherent argument. It's conciliatory but argumentative, and makes a case against him that I find compelling. It's a good Republican speech and I'm not going to veer into election handicapping as that's Richard's thing for now. It gets points across the GOP coalition elements.

    Jim Jordan Endorses Dylan McMillan

    PLAYER NAME Republicans Democrats NAT EV BUS MR ML SJW PRO EN Change 1 1 Standard stuff. I'm not going to really ascribe much to this or say much - except MacMillan is a standard MR/BUS Republican so one point in each category.

    Ward Speaks on International Trade

    PLAYER NAME Republicans Democrats NAT EV BUS MR ML SJW PRO EN Change -1 0 .5 1 1 0 0 0 I was curious how Ward had 80 among moderate Republicans (I classify them mentally as "Romney Republicans," for the record) but this PR kind of goes a way to explain that. Ward spells out a moderate position on trade. He also lays out generically inoffensive lines against the Fitzgerald White House that pleases the Democratic base while appealing to some moderates. It of course repels the core of the Trumpist Republicans - the NAT people. Some of this was hard to read - my advice is to break up and talk about each topic separately or do it line by line. When you mix the language altogether, your audience (hi) gets confused about your message, your themes, etc. I don't grade on writing but your content is really hard to follow at times. It probably hurt your score because again, if you just cram everything into one paragraph, and they're all different subjects, it's hard to grade you properly.

    President Offers Asylum for South African Farmers

    PLAYER NAME Republicans Democrats NAT EV BUS MR ML SJW PRO EN Change 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 Since I was the White House Chief of Staff before becoming an Administrator and the President consulted me on this, I'm going to lay out my reasoning carefully on this in full disclosure. The South African government has been appropriating land - particularly land by white South African farmers - in a bid for redistribution. It's a bit of an esoteric issue, to be fair, and it's not a huge deal (who cares, basically), but it's - in my eyes - a gambit that appeals to the conservatives, and people who watch this stuff. Remember the recent story about Alfie Evans? This is the kind of stuff the conservatives watch the most. Liberals and moderates watch a little less. I would say this is not offensive - in the sense that what the South African Government is doing is probably reprehensible to everyone across the political spectrum. So in that mindset, I award President Fitzgerald points, mostly in the NAT, EV, BUS categories. This isn't necessarily a huge gigantic deal - but it helps.

    Marijuana

    PLAYER NAME Republicans Democrats NAT EV BUS MR ML SJW PRO EN Change 0 -1 0 1 1 1 1 This is a popular plank. Marijuana legalization is ranked at 65% in the United States or something like that. So this gets points from many groups, including moderate Republicans. It turns off the most right wing Republicans, and doesn't really impact environmentalists but it generally polls well.

    Infrastructure Proposal

    PLAYER NAME Republicans Democrats NAT EV BUS MR ML SJW PRO EN Change +.5 +0 +0 +0 +1 +0 +2 +0 I chose to give this a point among Nationalists because Trump style Republicans value infrastructure building and so on. However, just a point since you are already so far left that they aren't going to naturally be your constituency. Business Republicans may like this a little too. But since you are generally so weighted towards to the Left, it's hard to give you the credit among business Republicans. A business Republican might like this but it's also coming from such a liberal Democrat that the open minded tolerance is not simply there. Not that I care about formatting and structure but I advise you to create a template for your press releases. You write well and you convey strong points.

    Ex-Felon Treatment

    PLAYER NAME Republicans Democrats NAT EV BUS MR ML SJW PRO EN Change +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 +1 +2 +0 Democrats on the left are pleased by this statement by the Senator from Ohio. Judging by your affinity numbers, you are enjoying record numbers from the Left but very little on the Right. This could be harmful in the Buckeye State, where you need some crossover votes, but you are doing well with galvanizing the liberals.
