GamePolitics.com has an interview with Stardock CEO Brad Wardell on The Political Machine 2016.
"How do you think the issues have changed since the last game – the important issues voters care about – are they the same or have they changed dramatically?
Wardell: They are quite a bit different this time. When you have don’t have an incumbent everything kind of goes up in the air. Last time tax cuts and Obamacare were the major issues; this time we’ve got ISIS going on in the Middle East, you’ve got the Ukraine issue, you have gun control (from a video game standpoint all this stuff is really good) the issue of equal pay for women in the workplace, etc. So all of this has kind of come to the forefront rather than the tame issues like social security reform, etc. From an entertainment or video game point of view, this election’s issues are a little bit more interesting."
