The changes in the actual arrangements are fairly subtle - some indeterminate electric organ chords layered over, some open fifths in the vocal arrangement changed to minor thirds, use of Weird Al's heavier voice for the moderator, and a slower flow used for Clinton vs. Trump compared to Obama vs. Romney. The nastier, more vicious tone of the IRL 2016 election fills in the rest of the detail.
