I have tpm and i think the biggest proble with this game is that it simply shows states. If game play is to be improved the states need to be broken up into counties. Anyone who looks at a political map by county sees that democrats never win states, we win cities. Whether its California, New York, Ohio or Texas, democrats simply do not win in rural areas. This should be reflected in the map so that players actually have the ability to win red states and vice versa. If a democrat looses in rural counties 60:40 odds are that they won that entire state unless it has few major cities.
