Well, the debating system is finally going to be made more realistic for next week.

Right now, preparing for debate helps you in the polls, and actually debating is mainly for fun. This will change. Preparing for debate will no longer boost you in the polls; it will just make you more likely to win debates.

Debating will be changed. If you win a debate, you will get a fairly large boost in the polls depending on many complex factors. In order to prevent "debate spamming" this system is built in such a way that more than one win in any day cannot possibly help you; the rest of the wins won't affect polls.

Losing a debate does not hurt you directly (but it can obviously help your opponent.) Declining a debate, however, will hurt you in the polls, as will letting one sit for too long.

I hope these changes make the game more realistic. They will take effect right after the election.

Q: How?
By answering consistently?
By reflecting your states views?
By adhering to your party line?
