Your goal: Win the hearts and minds of America’s voters to achieve victory in the 2016 presidential election. Play as one of more than a dozen candidates such as Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and more!
Think you can do better than the other candidates? Create your own candidate from scratch and show the rest of those windbags how to make a real run for the White House. Take to the campaign trail and try to out talk, outsmart, and out spend your opponents!
The Political Machine 2016 features updated relevant political topics from across the 2016 presidential campaign. Dozens of national issues including the Keystone XL Pipeline, human trafficking, and the Iran Nuclear Deal have been added, with more updates on the way as the season continues. Regional issues require the candidate to walk a fine line between appealing to the widest range of voters or appearing to “flip flop.”
Gaining favor from your voters by interviewing on talk shows might grant you some sympathy, but not everything can be swept under the rug forever. You must always be on the lookout for career-ending scandals like a torrid affair, natural disaster, or an unsavory email trail. They can pop up at any time and change the course of the campaign -- which can put you down in the polls!
Do you think you have what it takes? Take to the campaign trail and show the nation why you should be the next President of the United States of America!

Its a great little timekiller in which you effectively play a campaign manager. Using an overview map of the US, you deploy your candidate (and later, VP candidate) and build HQ's, operatives, advertising etc in order to create an electoral college win. Game gives a good variety of options, allowing you to vent some frustration and simply slaughter the opposition, right up to the setting where Im sure Sun Tzu, master of strategy that he is, wouldn't stand a chance.
This game, the 4th game in The Political Machine series, is in many ways similar to the last part, except for the addition of a few new faces like Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, inclusion of new national issues (like ISIS & the Iran Nuclear Deal), and an overall improvement in the game mechanics. The AI has been given a boost, in my opinion, and the new soundtrack is also more appealing than the last one. If you liked the older games in this series, you'll like this, sure as daylight.
