Scott (D) 293 electoral votes
Pingvin (R) 234 electoral votes
Nix (L) 11 electoral votes

Pingvin runs as a proud Tea-party type Conservative, leading some on the center to abandon to Scott, who's running as a "New Democrat". Meanwhile, some far left Democrats, alienated by Scott's campaign, flee to Nix, whose only major difference with Scott is on foreign policy. As well, North-Eastern independents, liberals, and moderates vote for Nix. By winning the center as well as the majority of the nation's liberals, Scott enters the oval office, not having won a majority of the popular vote.

Cathcon is a regional candidate and takes Midwest and splits vote with Pingvin in Missouri and Iowa, and lets Averroes win some of the border states that woudln't normally elect a candidate with -9.00 social score.
AverroŽs Nix - 282
Cathcon - 78
Pingvin - 178

This is a difficult one:
Seatown is seen to be too liberal by most Americans, however, is given a big advantage in that both of his opponents are pretty conservative. In a head-to-head, Seatown would lose to either Pingvin or Cathcon, but here, Seatown wins in a close 3-way race. Cathcon is able to do well in the Rust Belt and narrowly wins among the three with Independent voters, but Seatown's large edge with the Democratic Party pulls him through.

Seatown wins b/c his opponents compete from a similar demographic base.

Tmthforu (Republican) : 38%, 210
Miles (Democrat) : 33%, 170
Seatown (Progressive) : 29%, 158

Seatown, after being narrowly defeated by Miles in the Dem primaries, runs in a progressive ticket. The split in left-wing votes (despite Miles attracting many southerners and social conservatives) allows Tmthforu to win.

Antonio - D - 145EV / 28%
Fuzzy - M - 235EV / 39%
Ping - R - 158EV / 33%

Pingy benefits in the traditional R heartland by having the moderate/liberal votes split. But both Ping and Antonio suffer in swing states with Fuzzy vacuuming up a good whack of both the centre and the soft left and right. Antonio wins pluralities in the most liberal of states.

Assuming fezzy is a Libertarian Republican. It takes a very split left vote for him to win, and he still almost manages to lose. Ron Paul primary results + 20012 election based.The next map will be... interesting.

Ronald Reagan comes back from the dead, so the Republicans spend the entire election season having a wild party in Alaska. In the Democratic primaries, incumbent President Polnut (D-PR for some reason) fends off a strong primary challenge from Sen. Scott (D-CT), while the independent candidacy of Gov. Seatown (G-WA) presents him a strong challenge from the left. Senator Scott runs as an independent because he can.

Polnut: 359
Scott: 98
Seatown: 78
Ronald Reagan: 3



Unaware of the Reagan revival, all Republican-leaning and swing states vote for the relatively popular President due to a lack of options, except Alaska, which has been barricaded from the other 49 states and votes 100% for Reagan. Seatown fails to gain ballot access outside of the Pacific coast and Arizona, but does surprisingly well in liberal-land. Scott manages to do well in the Northeast, but the conventional wisdom was that no one really had a chance against Polnut from the start.

I was hoping my left-wing economic ideas would at least give me some Midwest states, at least Michigan. Next poster don't count make me run twice please if for some reason you decide to include this post but not pingvin.

No one knew who you were except as 'that guy who did that thing with the taxes 2 years ago', and you were only on the ballot in 4 states. Don't worry, though, you eventually became the first man-dog hybrid to become elected to the Senate.

Skip me, too.

The people demanded it so here's a shot using the last 10 players. Presidential candidate is on top of their running-mate.

Red:
Governor Seatown (D-WA)
Senator Alfred F. Jones (D-NY)

Orange:
Senator Antonio (D-VT)
Congressman Fezzy (D-CA)

Green:
Vice President Polnut (D-CA)
Senator Scott (D-CT)

Yellow:
Senator tmth (R-IN)
Governor Miles (R-LA)

Blue:
Senator Pingvin99 (R-TX)
Governor Cathcon (R-MI)



With three liberal tickets and two conservative tickets, a large amount of states break conservative, especially due to an ultra conservative ticket playing in the south. Tmth appeals for southern voters naming Miles as his VP, but isn't very successful. Polnut plays well with moderates and is able to carry some major states using his influence as VP. Antonio campaigns only in more liberal states and Seawater fights to establish himself as the lead liberal candidate.

This is a very interesting election because this is quite an unusual line-up of candidates. Phezzy wins the protesting progressives against the conservative democrat, Miles creates a coaltion among the poor, and A-bob wins richer Republican states. This results in a Democratic landslide considering that we have an actual poor vs rich election here, and there are simply more poor. And voters actually vote for their economic interests for once.
A-bob-80
Phezzy-169
Miles-289

The nomination of Fezzy as GOP candidate pisses off the South, resulting in a draft campaign in favor of Miles, who despite being a democrat is well perceived by social conservatives. This split in the republican base allows democrat candidate Seatown to win.



Seatown : 37%, 276 EVs
Fezzy : 32%, 116 EVs
Miles : 31%, 146 EVs

Definitely not my preference, but Antonio's Frenchness would kill him and seatown is just too too far left to break 250 :/

In fairness, I know almost nobody's positions on issues here well and am not very knowledgeable about the electoral aspects of U.S. politics. I just make do with what I've got rattling around in my head. Sometimes it's enough for the situation at hand. Sometimes it's not. It took me a few hours to make that after spending some time digging up what I could on the people in question, and probably would have taken 5-6 more had I been determined to get a vague understanding of why the states do or do not tend to vote certain ways. If folks prefer though I could take to lurking in these sorts of threads rather than trying to contribute in them. xD

Hugh becomes the Republican candidate by default, and Hash flops due to him being too much of a loose cannon. Redalgo is perceived as too liberal for most Americans, so a big Hugh win.

Three left leaning candidates. So basically, a conservatives nightmare.



The Democrats nominate Redalgo who, while winning several strong D states, cannot appeal outside of the Northeast and West Coasts. Morgieb runs as a liberal independent, slightly to the right of Redalgo and wins some other D leaning states, most important of which is California which he carries very narrowly.  Hughento by default as the most 'right' candidate is the Republican nominee, and due to the left wing vote splitting between Morgieb and Redalgo manages to win. The south, cannot bare voting for any of these candidates and there is a huge swath of 'unpledged electors' from that region. Hughento just manages to eek out a narrow Electoral College victory.

(Many states are carried by small pluralities, such as New Mexico and Michigan in this case)

Redalgo (D) - 85
Morgieb (I) -  131
Hughento (R) - 277
Unpledged - 45
