How to Successfully Promote Your Cause in The Sims 4: Politician Career Guide

Below is a complete step-by-step guide to promoting your cause in The Sims 4:

  1. Select your Sim and choose your cause.
  2. Get a confident mood.
  3. Select a Sim and pick “Rally to the Cause.”

While a low-ranking Politician Sim will initially struggle to promote their cause, being in a confident mood significantly increases your odds of a successful promotion. Fortunately, if you’re unsuccessful on your first attempt, you can ask other Sims and repeat the process until it works.


You can promote your cause multiple times to the same Sim! If it works on someone once, invite them over the next time the promotion task appears and try again. In most cases, they’ll eagerly support you again.

As you gain promotions through the politician career, you’ll gain additional dialogue options to discuss politics, secure votes for your campaign, and ask for bribes. Promoting your cause will become an entry into accomplishing these tasks, so make sure your Sim stays confident and charismatic so you can sway their favor easily.
