I’ve been trying many different runs since getting the game, and regardless of how I play I barely see the popularity indicator move over 7%. I have successfully tackled major problems (brought crime and/or poverty to zero) with massive boosts in certain polls, yet popularity and voter turn out are always amazingly low.
I often will take a massive effort into Criminal Justice Reform, that in D3 would either get me a second term or close to it. In D4, I do something very similar that leads to sizable boosts in both Liberal and Conservative polls. However, the popularity somehow manages to actually go lower…
- Does this sound correct in any way to you?
- Have you experianced this as well?
