After a bruising primary, the Democrats nominate Alfred F. Jones, who chooses Averroes Nix as his running mate to appeal to the centre. After the Republican nominee withdraws due to scandal, the 'main opposition' becomes Libertarian candidate 20RP12, in spite of his off-color running mate Free Palestine. A few 'libertarian' states swallow their distate to Free Palestine and narrowly vote for 20RP12, but ultimately it is a landslide.

Fmr. Senator Vosem (R-IL) - Governor 20RP12 (R-PA) : 386
Senator Alfred F. Jones (D-NY) - Activist Free Palestine (D-CA) : 152

The left wing grassroots of the Democratic Party upset at the direction of the political climate of the United States decide to support New York Senator Alfred F. Jones en-masse against the more establishment candidate, Congressman Yelnoc of Georgia. The internet support and vast organizational skills of Alfred wins him the Democratic nomination barely. The victorious New York Senator however in his desire for a 'truly liberal' ticket opts for activist Free Palestine of California, causing an uproar amongst the moderate section of the Democratic Party who simply leave the convention. In contrast, the Republican Party's fmr. Illinois Senator Vosem wins the GOP nod due to the vote splitting caused by multiple conservative candidates, infact, he narrowly avoids a brokered convention. Vosem chooses Pennsylvania Governor 20RP12 to help him amongst independents and to boost the tickets executive experience. In the end, the election is a rout. All of the swing states and 'lean' states go to the GOP, including New Jersey and Washington. The only saving grace for the Senator from New York is that due to the partisan atmosphere of recent times, most Democrats vote for the ticket, albeit begrudgingly, more stay home. Vosem storms into the White House.

This is almost a copy of the last map I did funnily enough.

In a roller coaster of a ride Democratic primary, Fallen Morgan, a far-left activist, is able to win a plurality of the vote and cajole enough delegates over to his side to take the nomination. For Vice President he picks Jake Matthews of Pennsylvania, a Republican, in a faint-hearted attempt to form an anti-war coalition and a majority. Morgan's speech at the DNC is a rallying cry for the far left but little else.

Vosem meanwhile wins the Republican primaries, despite being pro-choice. SupersonicVenue is chosen for VP to appeal to both mainstream conservatives and British Tories that might be illegally voting. The general election is general Morgan saying crazy things and the folks in the media not even knowing how to react. Vosem merely has to sit back and enjoy.

Governor Vosem (R-IL)/British Ambassador to the U.S. SupersonicVenue (R-DC) 397 electoral votes
Activist FallenMorgan (D/S-CA)/former Congressman Jake Matthews (L/D/R-PA) 141 electoral votes

IMO this is kinda optimistic for Morgan. Vosem should be able to do well with Rockefeller Republicans in the NorthEast.

Tried to decide how I was gonna do this and I came up with the lulziest idea.

Former Republican Governor of Michigan Cathcon chooses young North Carolina Republican Congressman Supersonic as his running mate to sure up the Southern base. Senator Vosem, dissatisfied with the Republican ticket, decides to run as a Democrat and somehow wins the nomination. He strikes a deal with the party to choose Palestinian Activist and Congressman FallenMorgan. After rumours emerge that Vosem and his running mate often have verbal--and sometimes even physical--spats, the campaign is nearly sunk and they go down in a 1980-esque defeat.

Jake/Vosem (Libertarian) : 50.2%, 271 EVs
Cathcon/Supersonic (Republican) : 49.8%, 265 EVs

For some reason, the democrats don't field a ticket that year. Turnout drops dramatically, but the libertarian ticket is able to pick enough democrat voters who want to prevent a republican victory and also to take the libertarian wing of the GOP itself. The election is one of the closest in American history, with the bellwether States being Florida, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Wyoming, Arizona and Idaho.

Governor Antonio of New York easily wins the Democratic primaries due to a fractured center. To appease moderate voters turned off by his solid left-wing views, he chooses Senator Vosem of Illinois, who abandoned the Republican party the previous year due to it drifting to the fringe on social issues.
Meanwhile, the insurgent campaign of Representative 20RP12 runs slightly behind the more establishment Cathcon the entire primary season, but not far enough to avoid a brokered convention. About thirty delegates who were pledged to Cathcon switch to 20RP12 on the second ballot, giving him the nomination, whereupon he picks Cathcon for VP to try to hold the party together.
20RP12 runs up the totals across the Mountain West, but does not do so well in the South. The Antonio/Vosem ticket wins in a near-landslide in November.


Antonio (D - NY) / Vosem (I - IL) - 386 EV, 52% PV
20RP12 (R - PA) / Cathcon (R - MI) - 152 EV, 47% PV

Governor Cathcon of Michigan ran as the established candidate in the GOP and easily won the nomination. He selected Senator 20RP12 in an effort to appeal to libertarians and younger voters. On the Democratic side, Governor Antonio V clinched the nomination. Many expected him to chose a moderate to contrast his liberal ideology, but instead, he chose Senator A Person of New Jersey.

Throughout the general election, Governor Cathcon had a moderate lead. Governor Antonio V closed in after successful debates, though it wasn't enough to win the election.



Governor Cathcon of Michigan/Senator 20RP12 of Pennsylvania - 303 EV's, 50.2% Popular Vote
Former Governor Antonio V of New York/Senator A Person of New Jersey - 235 EV's, 48.9% Popular Vote

In celebration of the passing of an amendment allowing foreign-born people to become president, the Democratic Party nominates Antonio V of Italy, who selects German a Person.  The Republicans nominate Governor Tmthforu94 of Indiana, who selects Congressman Vosem as his running-mate.  Being from Europe, the Democratic candidates turn out to be too progressive for most Americans, though some decide to get out the vote for Antonio V anyways.

The Republican combination of moderate libertarianism and Mormonism plays extremely well out west and suburbs, though comparatively poorly in the south. The Democratic extremism and "European values" scare off a lot of voters, bringing down the ticket in a landslide.

Senator Tmthforu94 (R-IN) breezes through the primaries with great ease. However, as soon as he was slated to be the Republican nominee, he faced the challenge of picking up Independents and disgruntled Democrats that were unsatisfied with the performance of President Napoleon (D-CT). Senator Tmth chooses Governor RealisticIdealist (I-WA) who subsequently changes his registration to Republican. Napoleon renominates Vice President FallenMorgan (D-CA) as his running mate.

Governor 20RP12 (R-PA) - Vice-President Realistic Idealist (R-WA) : 178
Fmr. President Napoleon (D-CT) - Fmr. Vice-President Fallen Morgan (D-CA) : 360


President Tmthforu94 decides to not run for re-election after the economy enters a double-dip recession. The GOP's 'hard hitters' shy away from the nomination, allowing libertarian Pennsylvania Governor 20RP12 to successfully win the nod for an election that most Republicans think is a lock for the Democrats. In a convention floor vote, serving Republican Vice-President Realistic Idealist of Washington is re-nominated. The GOP ticket tries to distance itself from the economic troubles by focusing on 'ending the wars' and 'bringing the troops home', however in an election dominated by domestic concerns this makes little headway. For the Democratic Party, former President Napoleon wins the nomination almost without contest after storming the Iowa Caucuses' and New Hampshire Primaries. America, unhappy with the choice they made four years earlier decides to re-elect Napoleon and Fallen Morgan to the Presidency, however voter turnout is rather low given the apparent 'stale' choices on both tickets.

Despite atypical candidate, the election proves to be polarized on standard partisan lines. The impact of the nomination by the GOP of socially moderate Supersonic and outright libertarian Jake as his running mate is nullified by the presence of centrist democrat Napoleon on the democrat size. To please the populist streak of the democrat electorate, he picks realisticidealist as his running mate. Ultimately, the democratic ticket is more successful in mobilizing its base.

With the conservative victory in the republican primary, the Governor chooses Jake Mattews, a vocal libertarian to balance the ticket which flips New Hampshire and the Southwest into battleground states. Meanwhile Senator Antonio picks a liberal from the opposite side of the country, enjoying great turnout from the party, but failing to win over key independent groups despite an early lead in the campaign.

Governor A-Bob wins the Republican primary and chooses Senator Supersonic as his running mate.  While the Democrats face severe internal divisions that prevent them from putting forward a strong candidate, Congressman Jake Mathews decides to run as an independent. To attract the left, he asks Senator Antonio to run with him. The independent ticket is strong among urban areas, ethnic communities, anti-war and libertarian voters, and many liberals and moderates. The Republicans hold onto their socially conservative base and make appeals to national security among swing state suburbans.  A close election means voters must wait until the results come in from closely contested Alaska to know who has won the electoral college.



Rep. Jake Matthews (I-NJ) / Sen. Antonio (I-ME)  270 EVs, 51.1%

Senator Antonio defeats a more moderate Midwestern governor in a protracted battle for the Democratic nomination. The Republicans, on the other hand, quickly consolidate around Virginia Senator and former OMB Director Shua.

July polls show Shua leading by a large margin:

Quote
Senator Shua - (R-VA) 49%
Senator Antonio (D-ME) - 38%

The Republicans hold their convention first, and Shua plays it safe with his running mate, picking fellow Senator Supersonic of Indiana (a.k.a. "Long John Silver").

Antonio's initial VP shortlist includes a number of party stalwarts. PA Governor Snowstalker, CT Governor Napoleon, NY Senator Jones. But Antonio knew that none of these picks would save his ticket. Hell, Napoleon had already told him that he wasn't willing to run, and the vetting process was tearing Snowstalker apart. (What would the voters think when they heard about the electro-shock therapy? And he was notoriously gaffe-prone, anyway...) No, none of these choices would work.

Antonio became depressed. Didn't eat, couldn't sleep. Once, he saw one of Shua's ads - the one with the Eiffel Tower, and the cheese, and the barbershop quartet wearing berets. After that he couldn't talk to anyone for hours... "Is that what they really think I am?" he asked, "An effete, cheese-eating, beret-wearing, freedom-hating social democrat from 'Old Europe'?"

All seemed lost. But Antonio had an idea. Colorado Governor A-Bob (a.k.a. "Buffalo Bob") had left the party nearly a decade ago, but he remained immensely popular among Democrats and many independents. His most recent book, the semi-autobiographical A-Bob in the Life had spent dozens of weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List. Most importantly, no one doubted his qualifications. Just maybe...

Antonio V's receives a huge boost in the polls after the Democratic convention. His convention speech is widely acclaimed, and his appearance largely dispels the myths peddled by the Shua campaign that had grown popular over the summer. In fact, Shua's popularity plummets after a second round of negative ads attacking Antonio V for his French heritage.

By the eve of election day, Antonio V pulls into a dead-heat with Shua in the RCP polling average:

Quote
Senator Shua (R-VA) - 48%
Antonio (D-ME) - 47%

The networks are unable to call the election for either candidate for nearly a week, as they wait for the completion of a re-count after electronic voting booths malfunction in crucial Waukesha County.


Senator Antonio (ME) / Former Governor A-Bob (CO) - 274
Senator Shua (VA) / Senator Supersonic (IN) - 264

Senator Antonio (D-ME)/Governor AverroŽs Nix (D-NY) - 257 - 49.2%
Senator Shua (R-VA)/Former Governor A-Bob (R-CO) - 281 - 50.8%

Senator Antonio wins the Democratic nomination and selects Governor Nix to provide executive and economic experience to the ticket. Senator Shua wins the Republican side and selects former Governor A-Bob to reinforce his conservative credentials with distrustful parts of the base. While Antonio runs a very liberal campaign, his populist rhetoric jibes well with the Rustbelt. However, the Shua/A-Bob ticket is able to hold onto Ohio by a hair and convince Independents that Antonio would be to extreme.

Gov. Averroes Nix (D-NY)/Sen. Nagas (D-VA) - 270 EVs
Sen. A-Bob (R-CO)/Rep. shua (R-VA) - 268 EVs

The liberal, but moderate Governor of New York, Averroes Nix wins the Democratic primary and selects fellow moderate, Senator Nagas of Virginia as his running mate.  On the Republican side, conservative Senator A-Bob of Colorado wins the nomination and libertarian Republican Congressman shua of Virginia becomes his running mate.  During the campaign, Nix establishes himself as a moderate, DLC-type Democrat whilst A-Bob presents himself as a severe conservative.  Seeing this, independent voters overwhelmingly flock to the Nix/Nagas campaign, but liberal turnout declines in certain battleground states.  Eventually, the race comes down to Virginia as the deciding state, which is called for Nix two days after the election.

After a brutal primary, the New York longtime boss Governor Nix rises above the fray and wins at the convention, announcing Senator Nagas as his Vice Presidential pick to appeal to moderate democrats.  Meanwhile republicans rally around Senator Shua half way through the primary after defeating the split conservatives Rep. Supersonic, Governor ZuWo and Speaker of the House Inks who spent a significant amount of campaign time attacking each other as the viable alternative to Shua.

With a much more divided left, the already moderate Senator Shua chooses long time friend Senator Scott of Connecticut in hopes of expanding the ticketís appeal to moderate and even liberal democrats. Unfortunately for the Shua campaign, the social conservative movement opts to stay home on Election Day even though he tries to paint himself as a common sense conservative on a unifying ticket.

Election Day is surprising with a suppressed conservative turnout combined with a split democratic party.



Senator Shua- Senator Scott 303
Governor Nix- Senator Nagas 235
