Gerald Ford: 1976

President Gerald Ford (R-MI)/Senator Robert Dole (R-KS)-527 EV, 59.5% of the popular vote.
Former Governor Jimmy Carter (D-GA)/Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV)-12 EV, 37.2% of the popular vote.
Former Senator Eugene McCarthy (I-MN)/Multiple Runningmates-3.2% of the popular vote.

I was lucky to get a good deal of momentum in the primaries, as well as getting (for a hefty price) Mo Udalls endorsement. Reagan was never a real threat, though he did come 0.1% away from winning New Hampshire. I used ads to blast Carter on all sorts of issues, and had a powerful level 9 scandal in the last week come out on him. I lost the first two debates, and tied on the final one. Dole beat Byrd in a very close, unremarkable debate.

I'm currently nearly able to win the GOP 2016 nomination as Thune., but Christie is proving difficult to budge.

Gerald Ford: 1984

President Gerald Ford (R-MI)/Vice President George Bush (R-TX)-535 EV, 65.3% of the popular vote.
Senator Walter Mondale (R-MN)/Former Senator George McGovern (D-SD)-3 EV, 34.7% of the popular vote.

And so ends the Ford trilogy. His three terms were marked by landslide victories. Now off to Bush in 1988 Wink I plan on playing up until 2012.

Played the "A giant sucking sound-1996" scenario where Perot had won in 1992 and is the incumbent in the race. I played as Schwartzkopf.

Schwartzkopf/Campbell: PV - 42.5%; EV - 483
Richards/Wilder: PV - 29.2%; EV - 30
Perot/Stockdale: PV - 28.3; EV - 25

The race was a three way tie up until the conventions then I just destroyed them the rest of the campaign

2012 Scenario


Fmr. Congressman Newt Gingrich (R-GA)/Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL)-- 287 electoral votes; 66,442,032 votes (51.7% of NPV)
[/b]President Barack Obama (D-IL)/Vice President Joe Biden (D-DE)--251 electoral votes; 62,106,980 votes (48.3% of NPV)

Good campaign.  Was consistently down in VA, NC, CO, and NV until the last few weeks.  Walker and Martinez were two of my biggest surrogates, which proved to be crucial!  Despite the closeness of the election, I never fell behind in the EV count on Election Night.

The closest state was New Mexico, which Gingrich won by only 3,746 votes.  Virginia was a nail-bitter too, with only a 13,000 vote victory for Gingrich.

United States presidential election, 2012



Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX)/Gov. Bob McDonnell (R-VA)--269 Electoral Votes; 49.3% of NPV (64,772,000 exactly)
Pres. Barack Obama (D-IL)/Vice Pres. Joe Biden (D-DE)--269 Electoral Votes; 48.9% of NPV (64,342,230)
Fmr. Gov. Gary Johnson (L-NM)/Jim Gray (L-CA)--0 Electoral Votes; 1.8% of NPV (2,336,284)

Election gets thrown to the House of Representatives where Perry wins.  

Closest states:
   New Hampshire (Perry by 554 votes, less than 0.1%)
   Pennsylvania (Obama by 56,584, 1.0%)
   Wisconsin (Perry by 28,895, 1.2%)
  

Most Obama-voting States:
   Washington, D.C. (91.9%)
   Hawaii (64.4%)
   Massachusetts (61.6%)

Most Perry-voting States:
   Utah (71.5%)
   Idaho (71.2%)
   Wyoming (69.4%)

I played as Obama, and this was a very interesting game.  I think I wasting too much time early-on trying to build infastructure in states like IN, GA, MT, AZ, and MO, while I neglected much of the Rust Belt (IA, WI, MI, OH) and VA.  I was leading, but a Power 9 scandal came out on me the the Friday before Election Day.  

Still, only 554 votes in New Hampshire!!  Talk about a nightmare!

2012 Election: (With President Forever 2008)



Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani/Former Governor Mitt Romney: 49% / 319 EV
President Barack Obama/VicePresident Joe Biden: 44.6% / 219 EV
Former Governor Gary Johnson/Judge Jim Gray: 2.4% / 0 EV
Others: 4% / 0 EV

Quite interesting game; I faced the primaries with Giuliani vs Romney, Huckabee, Palin as the main foes (2008 all over again), and with a strategy of taking New Hampshire, Florida and Nevada I managed to take the momentum. After winning the nomination I focused on winning the west and increasing the margins in upper New England, which explains why I won states like Oregon but not Pennsylvania... Now I'll see how I fare with Tim Pawlenty or Mitch Daniels.

My 2016 Scenario


Sec. of State Condoleezza Rice/ Sen. Marco Rubio 49.3%
Vice President Joe Biden/ Gov. Andrew Cuomo 50.2%
Gov. Gary Johnson/ Judge James Gray .5%

I was Rice, I started in GE mode and the campaign was brutal. Was 269-269 up until the last 2 seconds of Colorado.

Same scenario as above but this time it was Nunn(me)/Gephardt vs Wilson/Kemp vs Pres. Perot/McCain.

I won 270-157-111, PV was 40%-30%-30%

Has anyone ever had this happened before: I was playing the 2012 Republican primaries as Cain, and we got to Colorado. It was an exact tie between Romney and Cain - 225,338 votes apiece. I've never seen it before.

It was white on the map, but Cain won all delegates.

2012

Former Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA)/Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI)-289 EV, 49.7%-64,194,084 votes.
President Barack Obama (D-IL)/Vice President Joe Biden (D-DE)-249 EV, 49.1%-63,500,313 votes.
Former Governor Gary Johnson (L-NM)/Former Judge Jim Gray (L-CA)-0.8%-1,067,079 votes.
Former Congressman Virgil Goode (C-VA)/Mr. Jim Clymer (C-PA)-0.2%-276,667 votes.
Mrs. Jill Stein (G-MA)/Mrs. Cheri Honkala (G-PA)-0.2%-242,753 votes.

I started as Romney in the general. I focused on the swing states, and made my two non Romney leadership themes attacking Obama on the economy, and one praising myself on the issue of the size of government. I focused on Colorado, Ohio (which I won immediately when it was first reporting, 58-42. It later turned out to be 54-46) and New Hampshire. Florida, Virginia, Nevada, Wisconsin, and North Carolina were also heavily targeted. I spent a ton on ads in the last weeks, and despite being hit by power 9 scandals three times midway through the campaign, I was able to eek out a narrow win when Florida and Missouri were called. Wisconsin was the closest state, with a difference of 32,000 votes.

Just got P4E 2008, here is my first game:

Ran as Al Gore in the 2008 scenario that comes with the game. Started in the primaries with all characters on for both major parties and 3rd parties off. Was leading in Iowa till the last minute when Mark Warner surged there. He won and I came in 2nd. Warner also won NH. Most of the other candidates dropped out soon after, setting up me vs Hillary with Warner a distant 3rd. I won most of the South and West, Hillary took most of the NE and Midwest. The primary dragged on a long time with Hillary leading but nobody getting a majority By the time the primaries were almost done the delegate count was something like this:

Clinton 1400
Gore 1100
Warner 500

I used all my political influence points to get Warner to drop out and endorse me, which gave me a majority. Offered Hillary my VP and she accepted.

Romney had won the GOP primary pretty early and had been running a GE campaign since then. By the time I won the primary things were not looking good for Team D.


Romney/Pataki 47%
Gore/Clinton 40%

Throughout GE, I focused on running positive ads about homeland security, which I had gotten a couple of issue bonuses on and researched some insights into. I had a bit more momentum than Romney the whole campaign so I closed on him slowly and then narrowly overtook him in the last two weeks. By election day it was still very close and the game had over 100 EVs as tossups but Gore in a narrow lead.



Final results:
Gore/Clinton 50.4%, 290 EVs
Romney/Pataki 49.6%, 248 EVs

Not bad for a first time (on Hard difficulty, no less) Smiley

Awesome! I always play on easy, and still lose landslides Tongue You just inspired me to play as Gore for the first time in 2008, on the other hand...

1980 Primary



Kennedy: 1,642 delegates, 48.8% PV
Carter: 1,632 delegates, 51.2% PV

I finally beat Carter. Cheesy

I'm going to run this twice. Once with Carter as VP, the other with Kennedy picking somebody else. PIPs are exhausted so unless Carter drops out of his own accord, it could get dicey. The Republican nominee is Reagan who crushed Bush in a landslide, and Anderson is an Independent.

2016

President Mitt Romney (R-MA)/Vice President Paul Ryan (R-WI)-360 EV, 51.7%-65,994,161 votes.
Former Governor Deval Patrick (D-MA)/Former Secretary Janet Napolitano (D-AZ)-178 EV, 46.2%-59,047,196 votes.
Mr. Wayne Root (L-NV)/Mr. R. Lee Wrights (L-NC)-1.5%-1,863,252 votes.
Mr. Chuck Baldwin (C-MT)/Mrs. Susan Ducey (C-KA)-0.6%-796,649 votes.

Rhode Island was decided by 2%. The DNC was interesting. Hillary didn't win a single delegate to Super Tuesday, and soon after, Feingold endorsed Patrick sending him to the top. I thought Manchin delegates (about 1,100 of them) would go to Hillary, but they split nearly 50-50, and gave the nomination to Patrick by a few delegates. Patrick had $30,000,000 in the bank on election day. I had $600,000,000 and a power 9 scandal on Patrick the week before Tongue.
