Yelnoc runs as a centrist Demcorat and chooses the more liberal Jones for a ticket appeals to all factions of his party. Tmthforu is likewise a relatively moderate and picks SupersonicVenue. In teh general election, Yelnoc's home state of Georgia is key for him; from there, he has a base to campaign from in nearby NC, VA, and FL. He wins all three of those states on election night. Tmthforu/Venue do well in the midwest; they win swingy Wisconsin and Iowa by decent margins, they take Ohio by 4 points and even pull off a win in PA. The Republican ticket makes inroads out west as well, taking Colorado back. Overall, the Demcorats' strength in the southern Atlantic region is hard for the GOP to overcome.


Yelnoc/Jones (D)- 50.3%
Tmthforu/Venue (R)- 48.6%

Jones wins the dem. nomination after an easy primary against Miles and decides to choose him as his VP. Tmth gets the nomination against the more conservative Keystone Phil and chooses mainstream republican SuperSonicVenue of NH as his running mate, in order to appeal to the conservative base and in states like NH and PA. Polls show a tight race, with Jones having a slim lead in GA, VA and NC (because of Miles popularity in the South) but Tmth ahead in the rust belt. PA, SC, LA, IA, MI, FL and CO are the closest states (SC being the closest).



Jones/Miles 50% 297 EVs
Isaac/SSV 48% 241 EVs

Centrist Tmth chooses a Democrat and friend to unite the country against the quite liberal ticket of Juilo and Alfred. With Tmth and Miles running as Centrist semi-Populists, they are able to win wide swaths of the electorate. However, they fail to do well in the North-East and South-West, just barely taking Arizona.

The Democrats nominate the centrist fezzyfestoon, and pick Julio as VP to help him with progressives. Cathcon and Jbrase have strong appeal in the Midwest, while fezzy attracts support  from East Coast suburbs in a close race.

Centrist Democrat Miles picks also-centrist fezzyfestoon as his VP, while establishment Republican Shua holds down a 20RP12 insurgency and takes him on as a compromise pick. Shua benefits from depressed progressive turnout and libertarian leanings in some areas, but the Democrats appeal more to the center and win the day.

Moderate republican Shua, after a close primary against 2012RP and a teabagger, chooses 2012RP because he'd run as an independent if he wasn't given the VP position. Tea Party leaders reluctantly endorse him, but the ultraconservative base isn't too fond of him, and a majority of them stay at home on Election Day.
Alfred Jones, after an easier primary, decides to choose fellow Pennsylvania senator and close FezzyFestoon as his running mate. Conservadems in the south hate the ticket (a la Joe Manchin) and polls indicate that they're supporting Shua.
The campaign is really close, but manages to seem independent-minded, specially after the criticism he receives from TP leaders (independents think "hey, if the tea party doesn't like him it may be because he's a moderate guy).
Pennsylvania is the state to watch. The governor is GOP VP candidate and their senior (and favourite) senator is running as the dem VP.
Shua comfortably wins the election, but fails to carry PA:




Shua/2012RP 331 Evs 52%
Alfred/FezzyFestoon 207 EVs 46%
Constitution 1%
Others <1%

Shua (R-VA)-20RP12 (R-PA) : 286
Alfred F Jones (D-NY)-JulioMadrid (D-NV) : 252

Alfred, Senator from New York, comfortably wins the Democratic nomination for President capitalizing on liberal discontent with the direction of the party. Promising a 'new age for America' at the Democratic Conference in Seattle, Washington, the grassroots is extremely enthusiastic. In an attempt to push Hispanics away from the GOP and to aid the Democrats in the southwest, he picks popular Nevada Governor Julio. Virginia Governor, Shua, struggles to win the GOP nomination and is forced to move to the right to counter the insurgency from 20RP12. As a 'gift', Congressman 20RP12, is offered the vice-presidency slot on the ticket.  Senator Alfred and Governor Julio perform very well in the southwest, as expected, Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada all go red and Arizona is unexpectedly close. Nevertheless, Shua and 20RP12 storm the midwest. Wisconsin votes GOP for the first time since 1988, libertarian New Hampshire enthusiastically votes for the Republicans and Pennsylvania almost goes the GOP way. A 'bog-standard' Republican victory.

Close states

Arizona: 47.6%-52.0%
Ohio: 48.0%-50.9%
Pennsylvania: 47.6%-49.9%
New Hampshire: 48.8%-50.1%
Wisconsin: 48.5%-49.1%

20RP12 triangulates from his libertarian roots during the primaries to get the Republican nomination.  In order to appease the base, he picks little-known Supersonic.  The move excites said base, but costs 20RP12 the support of moderates and a number of independents.

Fortunately for him, that lost support stays home rather than supporting his Democratic opponent.  JulioMadrid rides a wave of anti-establishment, anti-right wing backlash and becomes another successful dark horse Democratic nominee.  He picks Alfred, a freshman politician of more orthodox views in hopes of shoring up the blue dog base, but the geographically unbalanced ticket does nothing to help him and "mainstream" media easily paints Julio as an "out-of-touch liberal elitist."

Turnout on election day is near historic lows.  In the end, the Democrats pull of a victory, but a very narrow one; a number of their key victories are merely a percentage point away from flipping.

Conservative Supersonic decided to try to win Independent/Moderate support by picking Yelnoc, a move which surprises many. Julio picks Alfred Jones, seen as a safe pick within the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for Supersonic, his surprise pick cost him a few key states and the victory.



Supersonic (R-NC)/Yelnoc (R-GA) - 227 EVs
Julio (D-CA)/Alfred Jones (D-NY) - 311 EVs

(I picked CA as Julio's state because I don't know why but I did)

Democrats don't run a candidate, as Obama becomes the most unpopular president of the US History after his 2nd term (9/89 approvals), because of millions of scandals (he's Herman Cain 2.0) and the 16% unemployment. The crisis is still here in 2016, and worsened. Republicans aren't beloved by the people, either, so an independent movement surges, with Occupy, numerous independents and Libertarians gaining senate and house seats(and even the governorship of GA with Yelnoc) all around America in 2014.
Governor Yelnoc decides to run as an independent. Libertarians, who are polling 15% with a generic candidate, decide they'll give their support to the governor if he chooses a Libertarian VP. Senator JBrase from TX is the chosen one, in order to appeal to the Republican South.
SuperSonicVenue, senator from NC, easily wins the primaries, and decides to have PA governor 20RP12 as his VP nominee, because he can "steal" some Libertarian votes from Yelnoc.

Yelnoc wins the election easily, with the support of the left (the ones who used to vote demcorat), a majority of the now-powerful Libertarians and a majority of independents. SuperSonic underperforms polls, as polls indicate Yelnoc will win anyway and some traditional republicans refusing to vote for 20RP12, as they don't consider him a real republican.



Yelnoc (I-GA) / JBrase (L-TX) 56% 413 EVs
SuperSonic (R-NC) / 20RP12 (R-PA) 37% 125 EVs
Others 7%

Julio chooses Yelnoc as his VP to balance out the ticket a little.  It kinda works.

20RP12(R-PA)-Jbrase (R-IA) : 371
Julio (D-CA)- Free Palestine (D-CA) : 143
Unpledged - 24

The Democratic Party is overtaken by the Occupy movement and in the chaos of the 2016 Convention, Julio and Free Palestine using arcane party rules manage to secure the nomination. In horror the moderate wing of the party walk out of the Convention. The Republicans in contrast are able to unite around Pennsylvania Governor 20RP12, who narrowly wins the primaries against hardcore Libertarian Jbrase. As an act of party unity, 20RP12 announce Jbrase as his running mate. However southern evangelicals disgusted at this socially moderate ticket announce that an independent 'unpledged' slate of Republican electors shall be on the ballot in Mississippi, Alabama and South Carolina. The GOP dominate the polling up to the election and are expected to break 400 electoral votes, however in the last week, party loyalty makes some of the undecided Democrats vote for Julio. Nevertheless 20RP12 storms the election and while 'unpledged' Republican electors win in the south, they are no where near needed for a GOP electoral college majority.

Close states

Maine At Large: 45.6%-53.0%
Washington: 47.8%-49.3%
California: 47.6%-49.9%
New Mexico: 49.0%-49.8%
Connecticut: 47.5%-50.9%

Senator Supersonic wins the Republican nomination. He selects Iowa Governor JBrase as his running mate, betting that a pro-life but otherwise socially moderate Midwesterner will win over swing voters without alienating the Republican base.

Senator Julio wins the Democratic nod after a sleepy primary season in which he received only token opposition from Representative Fallenmorgan. While FallenMorgan failed to win a single state in the primaries, his speeches were a national sensation, and he became notorious for his ability to work a crowd into a seething rage. When Julio attempts to nominate Yelnoc as his running mate at the convention, the party unexpectedly revolts and delegates force a floor vote. Even more surprisingly, "ninja delegates" sympathetic to FallenMorgan elect him Julio's running mate on the first ballot.

The fall campaign is a disaster for the JulioMadrid campaign, with FallenMorgan consistently generating larger crowds and making statements that directly contradict the ticket's official platform. By late October, Supersonic and Jbrase are almost universally expected to win by a wide margin.



Senator Supersonic / Governor Jbrase - 415 EVs (59% of popular vote)
Senator JulioMadrid / Representative FallenMorgan - 123 EVs, (38% of popular vote)

Hoo boy. This one's gonna be tough.

After an easy win in the Democratic primaries, Senator Julio selects Rep. FallenMorgan as his running mate, hoping to tap into a relatively apathetic far-left bloc. However, FallenMorgan proves to be a Palinesque figure, energizing the left, but turning off independents. Moderate New York governor Averroes Nix leaves the party in disgust and attaches himself to President Supersonic's bid (Vice President Jbrase did not wish to run for reelection), and the Republican ticket sweeps the vote. In one of the most stunning upsets of Election Night, favorite son Nix narrowly manages to give the Republicans the state of New York.



President SupersonicVenue (R-NC)/Governor Averroes Nix (I-NY): 420 EVs, 61% of the popular vote

Senator JulioMadrid (D-AZ)/Representative FallenMorgan (D-CA): 118 EVs, 38% of the popular vote

Senator 20RP12 manages to win the Republican nomination, and selects Supersonic as his VP in order to appeal more to mainstream Republicans.  Senator Alfred F Jones wins the Democratic nomination, and selects independent mayor of NYC AverroŽs Nix as his VP.  The Republicans, though, fail to really energize voters:
