In the form of a Democratic primary, based on the 2008 schedule:



Former Governor Snowstalker (D-PA), a populist-leaning left-winger, takes the Iowa caucus. However, the more fiscally moderate but social issues-focused Senator Scott (D-CT) wins New Hampshire. After Snow's easy victory in Michigan and Scott's slightly closer win in Nevada, it becomes a clear two-man race. Snowstalker's coalition of blacks and the remaining rural white Democrats wins him South Carolina. Hoping that his minority and poor white coalition can work in Florida (especially being a Cuban-American), he swings south, but Scott's better fundraising and numbers in Central and the non-Cuban areas of South Florida win him the day.



Super Tuesday is probably a win for Scott. Snowstalker sweeps the South and parts of the Midwest and Southwest, but Scott sweeps the Northeast and the key battlegrounds of New York and California.



Showing that he isn't just the out-of-touch blueblood that the Snowstalker campaign tried to pin him as, Scott makes some inroads into rural primaries before March, and seems to have the momentum.



Texas is a big win for Scott, though Snowstalker fights on until June, winning Puerto Rico, but Scott claims a bare majority of delegates in the South Dakota and Montana primaries.

Scott (D) vs Liberal Junkie (D) Primary (2008 style)



I edge it out with winning the deep south with African Americans and a final win in Oregon.
Lots of states would be close.

Party switcher shua runs against Morgan in the Democratic Primary.  Shua wins the support of Blue Dogs, moderates and Jews, but Morgan wins through the support of the Left and those who consider shua a hard-right DINO.

Through an unlikely combination of scandal-ridden opponents, negative advertisements, and just plain luck, wingnut mayor a Person of Chicago takes the Democratic nomination, keeping it after scores of prominent Democrats call for him to drop out.
Several Democratic Senators and Governors endorse his Republican opponent, Governor shua of Virginia instead.

(This is assuming there are no third parties, with Free Palestine's extremism causing the Democratic Party's voter turnout to be at a historic low.)

I'm really unsure about this map, you would probably win more states running against e if I was the only factor, but there are some left-wing coalitions I just can't see you winning.

I lose the Dem primary pretty badly. Not quite regional candidate status though. A gaffe in Ohio about Governor TJ causes my momentum to come to a halt, never to be regained.

My opposition to the War gets some token support from Southron voters, anti-war Northern types, and of course the people of my home state of California, but overall with the War raging on, the Union decides to give President Napoleon a second term.

Following a stunning defeat in the Democratic primary, libertarian Democratic Representative SJoyceFla (FL-13) declares his independent candidacy for the Florida governorship. The victor of the primary, Rep. Morgan (FL-22), runs as a Democrat. Facing generic Republican opposition, SJoyceFla manages to win his home area, the Keys, and much of North Florida, while Morgan takes much of South Florida and the Orlando area, winning a large enough margin there to take the plurality of the vote.

In the election to replace retiring US Senator Susan Collins, it is widely expected that Rep. Scott will waltz to victory. However, the Libertarian Party candidate SJoyceMaine runs a grassroots campaign, promising to make this election interesting and potentially a Senate pickup for the Libertarians.



In the end, Scott is victorious, 54.4% to SJoyce's 45.6%. Undaunted, SJoyce declares his candidacy for Maine's District 2; he is the favorite in the race.

Vermont Senate Election, 2018



Antonio : 52%
Joyce : 48%

In the election to replace retiring Senator Bernie Sanders, democrat Antonio V pulls a narrow victory over republican candidate SJoyce. Despite Joyce's charismatic campaign and his moderate position, Antonio is able to present himself as the candidate most faithful to Sanders' legacy.

California Gubernatorial Election, 2022



After the first round, two Democrats face off once again in the second round, Democrat Antonio from San Francisco and Democrat Koenkai from Berkeley.

Both feeling like they've locked down their base territories in the Bay Area, the North Bay for Antonio and the East/Southern Bay for Koenkai, both rush to Southern California to sell themselves. Antonio quickly builds financial support in Hollywood, a largely unsuccessful gambit due to his opposition to the strict anti-piracy demanded by Hollywood. Koenkai does not return their calls either. Koenkai attempts to appeal to largely impoverished, largely Hispanic farming communities by lambasting certain environmental policies, gaining him support in some crowds but losing it in others. At the same time, Koenkai aligns with several ethnic minority groups lambasting gentrification, a bridge too far for Antonio and indeed many voters. Both candidates attempt to pander to Hispanic voters so hard that both go on record that they will essentially stop enforcing any immigration laws.

Largely due to personal ties in the Silicon Valley, Koenkai receives huge wads of cash from the Silicon Valley. However, Antonio makes inroads by snagging financial support from several internet companies (Google, Facebook, etc), despite being crushed in the Silicon Valley money race.

Both candidates promise far more education funding than they could possibly deliver as Governor, but due to Koenkai having supported California's parent trigger bill, the teacher's unions deliver a needed endorsement, as well as hordes of cash, to Antonio. Both candidates propose universal health care plans, but Antonio's goes far further, Koenkai proposing to only sponsor catastrophic health insurance. Both these spark a waves of endorsements for both politicians that pidgeon-holes Koenkai as the "de-facto Republican", despite California being a one-party state.

On election day, Antonio finds himself doing much worse than expected in San Francisco proper due to Koenkai winning most of the ethnic vote. However, Antonio completely annihilates Koenkai in counties north of the bay, running up huge margins. Koenkai performs strongly in the South Bay and East Bay, but still loses them due to being pinned the "de-facto Republican".

Koenkai runs margins in the Californian agricultural heartland even higher than Republicans used to, largely due to taking both Republican and a large chunk of Hispanic voters, but still loses to Antonio in vote-heavy Los Angeles due to teacher's unions GOTV.

Koenkai, largely due to being more conservative on religiously-charged issues and just as willing to pander, wins Hispanic voters 51-49% and sweeps Asian voters 63-37% due to ID politics.

Republican turnout is below-average, largely due to law-and-order types disgusted with the noted "softness on crime" of both Democrats. However, largely due to being attacked by the teacher's unions, Koenkai wins Republicans 69-31%. Koenkai also manages to win Democrats, by the narrowest of margins (50.4%-49.6%). However, some of Koenkai's culturally moderate views, ethnic play, and criticism of environmental policies come back to bite him, as he gets wiped out among white moderate independents. Antonio triumphs among non-hispanic white voters 45-55%. Antoniotriumphs among independent voters by a margin of 57-43.

Antonio : 51.2%
Koenkai: 48.8%

It is quite noticeably, the closest the more moderate candidate in a Californian gubernatorial election has come towards winning. But not enough.

Koenkai (R)- 51.9%
Miles (D)- 47.4%

In the race to replace the retiring Rick Perry in 2014, Koenkai becomes the candidate of the Republican establishment. Despite a tough tea party challenge in the primary, he wins the Republican nomination by a surprisingly wide margin. Miles, on the other hand, ran far to the right of many prominent state Democrats; however, due to a field fractured with more liberal Democrats, he barely clings to the nomination.

In the general, Miles aggressively courts the vote of the social conservatives and those in rural, ancestrally Democratic areas. Koenkai base consists of more educated, suburban voters who; a group that has long been on the ascendancy in Texas politics. Koenkai is successful in both appealing to Independent voters while still keeping Republicans enthusiastic about his candidacy.

On election day, Miles runs far ahead of the President in the rural regions along the LA/AR/OK border, but performs very poorly in the cities, as he has taken the Democratic vote for granted there. Miles still wins some Democratic strongholds, such as Travis a Dallas counties, but Koenkai's margins there are impressive for a Republican. Koenkai also makes noticeable inroads with Hispanic voters, another faction of the electorate that Miles took for granted.

2016 Democratic primary to replace the retiring Barack Obama.



Miles strikes a chord with populists and Blue Dogs, where I do well in traditional Democratic areas. Due to overwhelming support in the South, and crucial wins in the Rust Belt, Miles pulls out a win.
