1900

President William Allison (R-IA)/Vice President William J. Byan (R-NE)-251 EV, 55.4% of the popular vote.
Congressman John Walter Smith (D-MY)/Admiral George Dewey (D-VT)-71 EV, 43.7% of the popular vote.
Others (Prohibition, Populist, National)-0.9% of the popular vote.

President Allison was popular, and pushed a series of Progressive reforms. The death of Vice President Teller left the Vice Presidency vacant, and using the Presidential Succession Act of 1861 (by which Lincoln appointed Seward Vice President) Allison appointed Congressman William Jennings Bryan of Nebraska to the office.

1904
During the second term of President Allison, the economy continued to grow. The Pensions Act of 1903 was also highly popular. The Republicans held heavy majorities in both chambers. However, measures to lower the tariff ecountered hostility from some Republicans, including Senator Joseph Foraker.

The Republicans nominated Vice President Bryan over Foraker, who challenged him at the convention. Nominated for Vice-President was Governor of New York, Theodore Roosevelt. The Democrats, desperate to find a popular candidate to defeat Bryan, settled upon Admiral George Dewey, who was easily nominated. The convention selected former Vice-President and Senator David B. Hill to be Dewey's running mate. However, on the campaign trail, Dewey was lackluster, and could not compete with the charismatic duo of Bryan and Roosevelt. Despite tentative backing from big business, Dewey was heavily defeated by Bryan.



Vice-President William J. Bryan (R-NE)/Governor Theodore Roosevelt (R-NY): Republican: 301: 56.0%
Admiral George Dewey (D-VT)/Senator David B. Hill(D-NY): Democratic: 42: 42.8%

1908



President William J. Bryan (R-NE)/Vice Theodore Roosevelt (R-NY): 200 - 51.0%
Governor John Albert Johnson (D-MN)/Senator John W. Kern (D-IN):150 - 47.9%
Other - 1.1%


The Democrats attempt to counter the Republican strategy, but Republican policy continues to be popular.  They nominate a charismatic but moderate governor from the Mid-West, John Albert Johnson.  However, to placate the old guard wing of the party John W. Kern is nominated Vice President.  Despite a spectacular campaign that sees significant splitting of the working class vote as well as the pick up of the recently admitted Oaklaholma, the Democrats lose narrowly, unable to breach Bryan's popularity.  Many blame the fear of the more radical Kern gaining office for the loss, fears which prove very well founded when Johnson dies in 1909.

1912

Governor Judson Harmon (D-OH)/Speaker of the House Champ Clark (D-MO)-252 EV, 45.4% of the popular vote.
President Theodore Roosevelt (R-NY)/Governor Hiram Johnson (R-CA)-88 EV, 37.9% of the popular vote.
Mr. Eugene Debs (S-IN)/Senator Robert LaFollette (S-WI)-52 EV, 15.9% of the popular vote.
Others (Prohibition, Populist, Labor)-0.8% of the popular vote.

On July 4th, 1910, President Bryan became the second American President to be assassinated, when John Schrank shot him during a tour of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. President Roosevelt declined to appoint a Vice President, and promised to continue Bryans legacy. Roosevelt, however, was an avowed internationalist, and quickly alienated many former Bryan supporters when he attempted to enter the Entente (an alliance consisting of the UK, France, and Russia) to counter the Confederacies entry into the Central Alliance (Italy, Germany, Austria, and Spain). Wisconsin Senator Robert LaFollette challenged Roosevelt for the Republican nomination, but was defeated on the first ballot by Roosevelt at the Republican National Convention. LaFollette then unsuccessfully sought the Socialist Party nomination, which he lost to party leader Eugene Debs. He was nominated for Vice President by the Socialist, and would play a key role in growing the party. The Democrats nominated Ohio Governor Judson Harmon at a chaotic convention. He picked House Speaker Champ Clark as his running mate. The Democrats would easily defeat the divided Republicans, ending sixteen years of Republican dominance.

1916



President Judson Harmon (D-OH)/Vice President Champ Clark (D-MO):  240 EV - 52.7%
Senator Robert M. La Follette, Sr. (R-WI)/Judge William Howard Taft (R-OH):  152 EV - 46.1%
Other - 1.2%

The election of 1916 was dominated by the outbreak of war in Europe.  The Democrats continued to take a staunch isolationist stance in contrast to former President Roosevelt's policies.  The Republicans believing they made a critical error at the 1912 convention accept La Follette back into the fold, absorbing a good deal of the plains progressive movement with him.  While attempting to run a campaign focusing on domestic issues, there's no avoiding the polarization, and this boost fails to push the Republicans back to the White House.  Some blame the VP choice, much as the Dems did in 1908.  The push for the Atlantic regional boost didn't come through either.

1920



Senator Robert M. La Follette, Sr. (R-WI)/Gov. Frank Orren Lowden (R-IL):  233 EV - 54.1%
Vice President Champ Clark (D-MO)/Sen. Alexander M. Palmer (D-PA):  140 EV - 45.32%

Other - 0.58%

With the war in Europe finally ending in 1919, the debate of isolationism and interventionism was long over. The Republicans renominate Senator LaFollette for President, and nominate Gov. Lowden of Illinois for Vice President. The aging Vice President Champ Clark would do little to inspire voters, and would lose handily in the popular vote. However, crucial swing states were still extremely close. Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Alexander M. Palmer would keep the Atlantic states barely in the Democratic column in the 1920 election.

1924

However, the election victory turned out to be somewhat of a poisoned chalice for the Republicans. A severe recession followed the war, and LaFollette's interventionist policies failed to do much to remedy the economic problems. The stock market plummeted, and several banks went bust. The loss of trade after the World War was highly damaging to the economy. Following catastrophic losses, particularly in New England and the Mid-West, in the 1922 elections, the Democrats stymied attempts at intervention in the economy by LaFollette. They also attacked him for being soft on communism.

The Democrats nominated fiscally conservative New York Governor Al Smith for President, and West Virginian Senator John W. Davis for Vice-President. The Republicans endured a bruising convention battle between the incumbent President, LaFollette, and conservative former Massachusetts Governor Calvin Coolidge. LaFollette survived, but Coolidge came out in support of the Smith/Davis ticket during the election. The unpopular LaFollette never really stood a chance, and was comfortably defeated.



Governor Al Smith (D-NY)/Senator John W. Davis (D-WV): Democratic: 266: 53.8%
President Robert LaFollette (R-WI)/Vice-President Frank Lowden (R-IL): 126: 44.3%

1928

Former Senator Joseph France (R-MD)/Senator John Blaine (R-WI)-306 EV, 56.4% of the popular vote.
President Al Smith (D-NY)/Vice President John Davis (D-WV)-86 EV, 43.1% of the popular vote.
Other (Socialist, Prohibition, Populist)-0.5% of the popular vote.

The election of 1928 was a battle between Progressives and Conservatives regarding the economy. While the global economy boomed, many still doubted the conservative policy of the Smith administration. Republicans nominated Joseph France without much opposition, and he used the droughts and dust storms ravaging the West as a way to energize his base. Running as a populist reformer, he defeated Smith on the basis that Smith was a “do nothing” President.

1932



President Joseph France (R-MD)/Vice President John Blaine (R-WI) - 340 EV - 57.01%
Gov. Albert Ritchie (D-MD)/Former Secretary of War Newton D. Baker (D-OH) - 56 EV - 42.34%

Other - 0.65%

President's France's first term was popular, and was noted for several progressive reforms to the economy. The recession that had struck in the early 1920s had ended long ago, but the shaky global economy, which had gone through several alternating booming and depressive periods, finally began to settle and improve. As such, France easily defeated Democratic nominee Albert Ritchie.

1936

Governor Robert Taft (D-OH)/Governor Styles Bridges (D-NH)-359 EV, 59.4% of the popular vote.
President Joseph France (R-MD)/Vice President John Blaine (R-WI)-37 EV, 40.0% of the popular vote.
Others (Socialist, Prohibition, Labor)-0.6% of the popular vote.

President France has managed to create a universal healthcare system, a public railroad system, and a series of stimulus and public works projects in his two terms in office. However, with another major crisis brewing in Europe, many citizens are weary of his interventionist foreign policy. The fears of a third war with the Confederacy, and a third term President, are enough to ensure President France is defeated in a landslide by the Democratic ticket of Governors Taft and Bridges.
