This looks more like a democratic primary, so that's the format I've chosen. I use the 2008 schedule because I don't know what the new one looks like.

Basically, Snowstalker is some kind of pro-labor left-wing democrat, Scott some kind of East Coast lib'rul and DeadFlagBlues a western maverick.

At the beginning Scott is considered as the heavy favorite, but Snowstalker pulls out a surprise win in Iowa which places the race as a tossup. Scott still manages to hold on New Hampshire, but Snowstalker sweeps Michigan. The NV caucus is won, in another fluke, by DeadFlagBlues, who manages to spin his momentum to win SC. Scott still wins Florida.



On Super Tuesday, Snowstalker is perceived as a narrow winner over Scott, thanks to close victories in the Southwest. DeadFlag, failing in several key contests like California and unable to make inroads outside the west, is broadly seen as the main loser. He however refuses to drop out.



February primaries don't go any better for DFB, who sees his support fade away and doesn't win any single State apart from Washington caucuses. As a result, he eventually drops out and endorses Scott, who, as a result, now holds a solid lead in the delegate count.



At this point Scott is broadly seen as the presumptive nominee. However, his excess of confidence and Snowstalker's renewed campaigning efforts results in disappointing results for Scott, who doesn't win TX, RI and MI as handily as expected whereas Snowstalker sweeps Ohio and Vermont in a landslide and pulls a surprise win in the Wyoming caucus. After that, momentum is back on Snowstalker's side.



Snowstalker keeps achieving huge wins. He sweeps Rust Belt states by commanding margins, but also manages to pull victories in the West. In the end, he wins all the final contests except SD.



Snowstalker enters in the convention with a solid delegate lead over Scott, but no absolute majority. The stake of power is held by DFB's delegates, which are now free of their vote. However, they mostly choose to support Snowstalker's side in order to follow the people's will.



Snowstalker wins.

Scott (red) - 218 (39%)
TheDeadFlagBlues (orange) - 211 (35%)
Antonio V (green) - 109 (26%)

Scott does well in major cities. Antonio V campaigns as a populist and improbably wins much of both the rural and industrial Midwest. TheDeadFlagBlues, the most conservative candidate by default, does well in the Mountain West and a very disgruntled South.

Accidentally gave Nix Alaska. Assume it goes to Pingvin.

Pingvinn (Constitution-Russia)
RFK (Democrat-New York)
Averroes Nix (Independent-New York)

Despite Ping's staunch Conservatism, he wins a plurality due to liberal vote splitting. Averroes Nix & RFK form a tag team of sorts with RFK campaigning heavily in solidly progressive states while Nix campaigns in more moderate states, however, it is not enough.

I like the template of a Democratic primary used earlier by Antonio for three like-minded posters, so I'll adopt the same one here. This time, Antonio is serving the role of New Deal progressive, Scott of the New Democrat, and Morgan of the left-libertarian.

In Iowa, all three candidates are competitive, but Antonio narrowly comes out on top. The real surprise is Morgan's second-place finish, which gives him enough momentum to upset favorite Scott in the granite state. Scott's campaign appears to be in trouble, but he manages to stay in the race with two decisive victories in South Carolina and Florida. At the end of January, the map looks like this:



On Super Tuesday, Scott's victories are confined to the south, while Antonio wins two states in the midwest, one in the northeast, and one in the west, garnering most of his support from the working class. In a disappointing day for the Morgan campaign, Morgan, who had been hoping for victories in Minnesota, Vermont, and Colorado, won just one of those contests. Despite speculation from the media, Morgan announced that he will stay in the race.



By the end of March, Scott seems to have the election wrapped up. It seems peculiar that a campaign which lost both of the major early states would be so far ahead, but the strategy adopted by Scott after his defeats explains his comeback: While Antonio and Morgan were busy trying to out-liberal each other, Antonio on economic policy and Morgan on social and foreign policy, more middle-of-the-road voters felt dissatisfied with the two major candidates. Recognizing this divide, Scott emphasized his more centrist and third way positions to gain the support of this left-out constituency. The strategy seems to have worked. Morgan officially withdraws from the race and throws his support behind Antonio. It's now up to him to stop this juggernaut which seems destined to capture the nomination.



Antonio puts up a commendable fight, but it's too late. The momentum is on Scott's side, and it's impossible to stop. Following Scott's victory in the New York primary, Antonio sees that continued resistance is futile, and he, too, withdraws. Here's the map following the New York primary:



And the map on the day of the convention:

With candidates like these, this must be the election of 2032 or something.



MOPolitico (Republican Party)- 42%, 330EV
Scott (Democratic Party)- 35%, 195 EV
Antonio V (Social Democratic and Progressive Party)- 23%, 13EV

Two scenarios:

1) Antonio as Dem, MOPolitico as Libertarian-leaning Ind



Antonio narrowly wins thanks to Simfan bleeding support to MOPolitico.

2) MOPolitico as Dem, Antonio as Ind

A close race, but Dem candidate Realisticidealist wins by a comfortable margin in the electoral college thanks to vote split between Republican Simfan and libertarian-leaning indy Jbrase.



Realisticidealist : 37%, 330 EVs
Simfan : 33%, 132 EVs
Jbrase : 30%, 76 EVs

With near identical social positions, the vote of the economic right is divided between RosettaStoned and realisticidealist. Antonvio V wins in a plurality.
