Rich was too underfunded and it wasn't the right year. I doubt it.

70s is pre-Watson, but you can include him if you like.
FWIW this will go past the 70's most likely...probably up to around 2000 or so. Depends on how f**ked I can be.

I think the best order to do it would be:

1. Virginia
2. Wisconsin
3. Indiana
4. Kentucky

Bottom two are relatively normal maps. Virginia goes top because that map has actually been struck down.

835  General Discussion / Alternative History / Maverick - the Andrew Wilson Story on: November 20, 2014, 06:32:49 am
OK some people know in the aborted Americana 3.0 attempt I created a character called Andrew Wilson. What most people don't know is that I had envisioned a character like him for quite a while before that - in the same way that he was created in Americana, as a "moderate" WASP North-Eastern Republican, but this time an establishment WASP who hated other establishment WASP's and getting along better with Dems. I will simulate the timeline in the same way Americana has been set out, but with Mr. Wilson grandfathered in.

This will be written in a narrative, almost play-like format ala Westman/Dent, and will focus on all elements of Wilson's life. And yes, he does have his controversies.

The point of divergence from real life will probably be in the 70's, around the same time D'Israeli and Dent got elected, and when Wilson will be elected.

tbh I think the Montana/Dakota at large districts are more winnable than the Rahall/McIntyre/Barrow/Arkansas seats at this point.

Does nobody else think the southernmost New Mexico district is also relatively vulnerable? The incumbent there is kind of an idiot.
We did win it in 2008. Wouldn't rule it out.

840  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Can you create an Obama sweep in your state? on: November 18, 2014, 02:41:12 am
Challenges: Kansas, Arizona, Nevada
Nevada's pretty simple:



Las Vegas close-up:



NV-01 (blue), 57.9% Obama, 54.4% D average
NV-02 (green), 51.0% Obama, 46.6% D average
NV-03 (purple), 54.3% Obama, 52.9% D average
NV-04 (red), 59.0% Obama, 56.7% D average


Didn't Obama sweep Nevada's current map in '08?
I think so. But someone wanted that map done. In hindsight though I probs should've split Reno/Carson City.
841  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Which Republican candidate would do best in Virginia? on: November 18, 2014, 01:23:33 am
Leaning Bush (over Paul).  Walker and Christie are tied for a distant 3rd because they would scare NOVA to death with their budget cut rhetoric.  I could see Bush taking his father's path to a narrow win: supercharged rural turnout plus winning over enough moderate minority voters to cut the Dem margins in their base areas.  Paul would be trying the Gillespie path and hoping to do a couple percent better in Fairfax. 
That sounds more like his brother's path to Virginia.

I do agree that Jeb is the best fit for Virginia.

If Hillary is President, 2018 is going to be very rough for the Democrats in terms of Senate seats.
If her coattails are limited there's a good chance of the Pubs holding a filibuster-proof majority (though given a Democrat's President that's not really relevant).

I'm surprised they still exist.

I was too young to jump on the BlackBerry bandwagon, iPhone's became common place by the time I started looking at smartphones.
