I asked you for inputs so YOU could see the take-home results for yourself.

I will say this: your interpretation may or may not be valid, or only partially so.

Keep in mind this is an optimizer not a simulator. We can restrict alpha in each precinct to a given range. That is an implicit variance, no? The model will determine the appropriate precinct partisanship alpha, subject to the weighted average alpha (1.12)

But I will experiment by adding a variance constraint to the model.
