Talking about any election (Congress or President), I'm afraid that being able to have a look at the live results (once you voted) is unfortunately part of the eRepublik culture by now. But I really think that it makes the elections more tactical and less democratic.
I know we're in a game, and a lot of players would probably value overall the tactical picture of the actual situations.
But sometimes, you feel like the winners are not the ones who should have won, that the final figures shouldn't have been the same without that gameplay.
Being organized as a party is a good thing, obviously, but should it be the point that makes you winning an election that you would have lost in a "democratic and blind election" ?
And I'm not even talking about the "buying votes" that this system allows.
What do you think ?
