Softpedia has weighed in and given their review of The Political Machine 2008. It's a thorough review with a load of screenshoots as well.

regarding the voting preferences of the white male population of Ohio

election in Florida. It would not hurt to ask someone why Electoral
College votes do not always reflect the popular vote and why vice
presidents don't matter much."
