I don't understand. I create a customized candidate of President Dwight David Eisenhower. Because I have created mods of policies, [using the instructions of professionals like Red Arrow] I was able to create an Eisenhower that is closer to the real life original. In other words, a pro-business centrist who is strong on national security AND supports active government in certain areas. He is strongly in favour of 'Fixing Infrastructure' and 'Federal Research Funding' alongside his support of 'Deficit Reduction' and he favours 'Curbing Russian Might' along with 'Internationalism v Isolationism' and 'Greater Role for Diplomacy' [I created that policy because I believe isolationism is rising again]. I modified both Eisenhower's and Sander's attributes to make them superpowered, with the general having an edge. I also modified the map. Many states exaggerated Democratic strength in that the registered Democrats are really conservative Democrats that often vote Republican.
Yet Bernie is kicking my butt all the time. I don't understand it. I liberated Western Europe and built America's highway system and launched the space program. What am I doing wrong? I am trying to run as a liberal or centrist Republican rather than a conservative. I thought the independents would love me.
