How to Suceed
Steps to become President.
Step 2: Campaign in ALL OF THE STATES to get support. Many people have skipped states and it's come back to hurt them, so treat every state like they're important (because they are).
Step 3: Win your Primaries and Caucuses. Your Caucuses come first, and are open to the public while your primaries are secret for a few days. This is where your party decides who they want running for office, so try to win over the other people in your party.
Step 4: Go to your national conventions, go to debates, get a running mate, and set up Adds. These allow the people to see who you for who you are. Try to be the person they would be proud to get behind and support.
Step 5: Bite your nails at the General Election. You must win at least 270 of the electoral votes to be a winner.
Step 6: Get inaugurated. This usually happens in the January after the election.
Here are some of the most popular candidates of 2016
Democrat. So far she is looking at an approval rating of 41.6%. She has stuck out as being a possible first female president and has actually had very little negatives to her campaign.
"Republican". Trump has been under fire for his racist and frankly rude behavior in the campaign so far. This is not how to act during a presidential race. His approval ratings are at 34.2%.
Ben Carson(R) is a former Neurosurgeon. He has had a few hiccups with quotes that are exactly real, but otherwise he hasn't done much to make people dislike or like him. You need to stand out positively in order to win. His approval ratings are at 21%.
