Goldwater (R-WA)/Clinton1996 (D-GA) 297 Electoral votes (Republican Party)

Scott (D-CT)/Spenstar (D-NY) (Democratic Party) 241 Electoral votes


The Goldwater/Clinton 1996 ticket gets support from the Libertarian leaning mountain states (because of Goldwater) and the south (because of Clinton96).

Edit: I should have used the 50% shading in Washington.

Gov. Goldwater (R-WA)/Gov. Matt from VT (R-VT) (Republican)- 377
Senator Scott (D-CT)/Congressman Averroes Nix (I-NY) (Democratic)- 161

In the Republican primaries, Gov. Goldwater (Washington) wins the nomination by uniting the moderate and libertarian wings of the party, and chooses Gov. Matt (Vermont) as his running mate to burnish his libertarian credentials while solidifying the conservative base.  On the Democratic side, Senator Scott (Connecticut) easily wins the Democratic nomination due to strong support with both liberals and moderates.  He offers the VP slot to Independent Congressman Averroes Nix (New York), who accepts.  With the Republican ticket more moderate and with some libertarian leanings, and the Democratic ticket having two more moderate Northeasterners, the race quickly becomes an exciting contest, opening up many states on both sides that would otherwise have been off-limits.  In the last few days of the campaign, however, Goldwater makes enough inroads with moderates, alongside his enthusiastic libertarian support, to pull out victories in many close states, including several swing states (NH, MI, WI, IA, and FL), thus giving him a comfortable (though not landslide) victory in the Electoral College.

In a bizarre election cycle, Michigan Gov. Oldiesfreak (R) outmaneuvers rivals Gov. Matt of Vermont and Gov. Goldwater of Washington, becoming the first black Republican to win the party's nomination. Oldiesfreak chooses as his running-mate Gov. Matt, reflecting a nasty primary campaign between himself and Gov. Goldwater, whom he attacked as an "anti-civil rights libertarian" throughout the campaign, calling him unelectable.

On the Democratic side, Sen. Nix of New York won the Democratic nomination, and then, sensing an opportunity when he saw one, selected Republican Gov. Goldwater as his running-mate. Goldwater's joining of the ticket required Sen. Nix to declare himself as an independent in order to assure his cooperation, but in the end, the Democratic Party supported Nix rather than field a candidate of their own against a conservative Michigan Governor and his conservative-leaning running-mate.

In the end, the Nix-Goldwater ticket beat Oldies-Matt in a landslide, reflecting some off the cuff marks about Southerners that bolted Dixie into the Independent/Democratic camp. With 55% of the popular vote, a solid Democratic majority in both the House and in the Senate, and 468 electoral votes to the Republicans' 70, Senator Nix became President Nix on January 20, 2017.

2020 had been a particularly divisive year for the GOP. After the field was cleared for the most part following Iowa and New Hampshire, the only two remaining were Governor "Goldy" Water of Washington and Senator Ollie S. Freake Freak of Michigan. The moderates and hawks in the GOP suffered a decisive defeat in 2016 when Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky won the GOP nomination. Paul however would go on to lose narrowly to the Democratic ticket of Hillary Clinton and Louisville Mayor Tee N. Eff. Though Hillary's administration was relatively popular at first, in 2018 Hillary resigned after being caught having an affair with a 19 year old intern. Vice President Eff was considered by many to be too far to the left by many, yet at the same time excited the leftwing base of the party.

By the 2020 primaries and caucuses Sen. Freake was the last hope of the moderate wing of the GOP. The hawks were slightly more comfortable with Water than they had been with Paul, but they on average decided to break towards Freake. Winning by a fluke in Iowa, Freake was able to win over 30% nationwide in the primaries and carried 12 states.


Blue - Gov. Water
Green - Sen. Freake

On the Democratic side everyone worried that President Eff's call for a new socialist society was going too far. To quell their concerns, President Eff decided to offer Sen. Freake to be his running mate, hoping the public would see the Democratic ticket as more appealing. Governor Water chose Congressman S.S. Venue of Tennessee for his running mate. while Dem ticket picked up steam after the convention, the anti-southern gaffes of Sen. Freake proved deadly. Over the last 22 years the Democratic party had been slowly working to retake the south, embracing changing demographics. The coastal south had been moving left since 2008 and against a lessor candidate Clinton would have possibly made a clean sweep of the southeast coastal states. TNF being from Kentucky, and his running mate being African American, there had been hopes of continuing the trend, however once the gaffes started rolling, the southerns started walking away in droves.

By election day the race was a toss up, and expected to go on into the late night. At 2:37am, CST, the race was finally called.....



Governor "Goldy" Water / Rep. S.S. Venue - 275 EV 48.2%
President Tee N. Eff / Sen. Ollie S. Freake - 263 EV 47.3%

Senator TNF (D-KY)/ Congressman Oldiesfreak (R-MI) - 52.2%, 308 EV's
Senator Supersonic (R-TN)/Governor James Brase (R-TX) - 46.4%, 230 EV's
Others - 1.4%, 0 EV's

President George H.W. Bush retired after one term, just in time as the economy plundered and the GOP race got especially ugly. Texas Governor James Brase, who defeated Ann Richards in a close race, decided to run on a libertarian platform of cutting loopholes, cutting taxes, and increasing personal freedom. The frontrunner the whole time was Senator Supersonic, a neoconservative with some odd opinions that always put him a little at risk. His original challenger was Wisconsin Populist Senator TJ, but TJ's campaign shuttered down after a narrowly loss in Iowa to Mr. Brase. Congressman Oldiesfreak, a black liberal Republican from a D+8 District in Michigan, ran for the nomination and won Vermont, but ended up the race frustrated with the party and left to run as an independent for a while.

Meanwhile, Senator TNF quietly locked up the nomination. His radical views had establishment Democrats quivering, hoping that Georgia Governor Clinton1996, Connecticut Senator Scott, or Former President Snowguy716 would pick up the pace. None of them did. TNF was quietly aware he could not win without party unity, and he had the bare minimum of delegates against his wide array of challengers. He had to think bold. After long conversations with Oldiesfreak, the Senator was ready for a game changer.

TNF/Oldiesfreak was a legendary ticket. Oldiesfreak managed to win TNF states that would not budge without him: Michigan, Connecticut, and Montana. At that moment in the Democrat convention, TNF surged to a lead of 56-36 against Supersonic/Jbrase. Supersonic would continue chipping away at the Senators lead, continually chipping with good debate performances, strong fundraising numbers, and unity across the Republicans against TNF, but it was not enough. A combination of Oldiesfreak as a VP choice, the NAFTA issue, and public tire of Republicans pushed TNF to a fairly strong victory.

The election has the lowest turnout in years as the Democratic base have trouble rallying around a slate of someone to the left and to the right of the party while the Republicans are outraged that the Republican nominees are too libertarian. All 4 candidates are from states that favor the other political party that they aren't registered in, however, both Presidential nominees, ElectionsGuy and TNF, and VP nominee, Goldwater, are able to carry their home states of Wisconsin, Kentucky and Washington respectively due to their high elasticity and their favorable ratings in the states. Senator Maxwell, while popular in Oklahoma, is too polarized of a state and disapproves of TNF too much to swing in the Democrats favor. Ultimately, the libertarian Republican ticket narrowly picks up the victory over the Odd Couple Democrats.

1952

The Korean War having destroyed the chances of President Harry Truman (D-Mo) for a second term, the Democrats ultimately chose former Senator and former Secretary of State Polnut to head their ticket. His running-mate, North Carolina Governor Scott Sunday, was chosen as a sop to the South.

The Republicans chose anti-communist, interventionist Senator Goldwater of Delaware and Congressman B. "Madman" Motley, and the pair attacked the Democrats for "leading the nation to stalemate and defeat in Korea."



Senator Goldwater of Delaware and Congressman Madman Motley of Indiana (Republican Party): 50.18% (288)
Former Senator and Secretary of State Polnut of Massachusetts and Governor Scott Sunday of North Carolina (Democratic Party): 49.33% (243)

1896



(sorry, forgot to check electoral totals, but Polnut wins)

After the nomination of the Bourbon Democratic Cleveland in 1892, the seizure of the Democratic Party in 1896 by the far-left was a shock. Firebrand Colorado congressman and former coal miner Thomas Newport Faulkner stirred up the convention to nominate him on a platform of low tariffs, anti-imperialism, trust-busting, and support for labor unions. To placate Southern conservatives and the agrarian populists at once, he selected the soft-spoken but piously Christian Scott Sunday of North Carolina. The Republicans, meanwhile, nominated Senator Polaris Nutter of Pennsylvania, who managed to steal some of Faulkner's thunder in the general election by tapping into the progressive wing of the Republican Party while still having strong views on protectionism and imperialism, which were emphasized by his selection of Admiral Harold Goldwater of New York, who had previously been involved in the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy in 1893. Faulkner's radicalism led the business establishment to overlook some of Nutter's progressive stances on trusts, and combined with his sway over moderates, allowed him to prevail over Faulkner in one of the most polarizing campaigns in American history.
