I just played a 2004 primary/general campaign as myself, against Bush.

Bush won 274/264 50.3%/49.7%

The total popular vote was 151,342,908

I know - I had to double check the number a few times.

I thought the real turnout was 125 million which equaled something like 60% turnout? Wouldn't 150 then be something like 75%? Or am I missing something? Extraordinarily high by American standards anyway of course, given how 2004 had a high turnout to begin with.

2004 U.S. VAP was about 218 million.  However, 2004 registered voters numbered 168 million, plus those in North Dakota and Wisconsin (no voter registration numbers kept), plus same-day registrations.

It would be insanely high turnout.

As Alcon said, it would be 75% of the total voting age population, but over 90% of registered voters.

Ah, of course the registered voters stuff you go with in the US. I had forgotten about that. No further questions.

I just had a Clinton-Huckabee-Bloomberg scenario that had a popular vote total of 198.4 million, so basically everyone who could vote did.

Oh and the results for those curious:
Huckabee: 37.1% (366 EC)
Clinton: 33.1% (172 EC)
Bloomberg: 29.8% (none)

I played as Bloomberg and I was amazed that with about 30% of the vote I didnt win ANY states...

In the 1932 scenario, with Hoover v. Roosevelt v. Thomas v. Foster, there was a turnout of 142,585,742, while in the actual 1932 election the turnout was just 39,751,898.

I believe in the scenario folder the guy that made it, put 150 voter turn out.
