How accurate will state political leanings be?

Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2020

In political machine 2016, there were liberal, moderate, conservative values alongside republican, independent, and democratic values, however some of this didn't really work out so well as intended (like kentucky & oklahoma still being a hyper partisan pro-democratic states in every iteration of political machine, and a notable gripe among steam commenters) so will the conservative, liberal leanings be kept entirely? And will there be more realism on part of the game, that way you don't have to internally change state leaning values entirely? This would also be a focal point for multiplayer balancing too, as Democrats had a strong implicit bias on the map due to party registration numbers alone.

Hopefully this issue is fixed, I'm really looking forward to this game, and not having to pour exorbitant amounts of political capital when playing with other people just to keep arkansas, oklahoma, and kentucky into one political column.
