one question about the map, what is Washington dc at in vote totals
I don't remember the exact percentage, but it was comfortably over 60%. Once I realized I was going to easily win, I focused heavily on Massachusetts and D.C., as I thought those would be the toughest states. D.C. went from 40 points against Bachmann to 10 points for her in a span of 3 weeks.

I closed to quickly, but I won as Bloomberg finally. I did not get most of the state percentages, but I did remember what I got overall. Until two weeks before, I was only leading in Rhode Island.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I-NY)/Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE) - 41%, 355 EV's
Governor Mitch Daniels (R-IN)/Senator Jim Demint (R-SC) - 32%, 110 EV's
Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC)/Mike Beebe (D-AR) - 27%, 73 EV's

I feel like I'm running the thread amok, but...

1996, Bill Weld becomes the Republican nominee after months and months of building momentum in early states like Iowa, New Hampshire, Delaware, and the Dakotas, and managed to sweep the entire nation, with Dole only taking the most anti-Weld states of Oklahoma, Texas, Alaska, and his home state of Kansas and McCain taking Hawaii. Once he officially became the nominee, Weld picked Richard Lugar, revered Senator of Indiana, to be his Vice Presidential candidate. From the end of the conventions, Weld possessed an immense, unbeatable lead, and in spite of tons of scandals and negative ads on both sides, Weld won with a victory many thought would be hard considering the economy turning around.



Governor Bill Weld (R-MA)/Senator Dick Lugar (R-IN) - 52%, 506 EV's
President William J. Clinton (D-AR)/House Minority Leader Dick Gephardt (D-MO) - 39%, 32 EV's
Businessman Ross Perot (R-TX)/Former Congressman Ed Zschau (R-CA) - 8%, 0 EV's
Activist Ralph Nader (G-CT)/Enviormentalist Winona LaDuke (G-CA)

Edwards and I went through a brutal Primary fight. But I came out on top with a surprise win in Colorado in May and had the momentum from there. Powell challenged Bush for the nomination and won New Hampshire, Arizona, and Iowa. Bush won, but was severely wounded. In the beginning, the tossups were as they were IRL; Nevada, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Ohio, Colorado, New Mexico, New Hampshire, Oragon, Washington, Pennsylvania, Missouri, and of course Florida. But by destroying him in the debates and by building up a huge following of footsoldiers I ended up with leads in the Swing States. In October, I had a huge cash dump in Bush States and ended up with this surprising result. Keep in mind though, he had leads in Utah, Wyoming, Idaho, Alabama, Alaska, Kansas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma going in.

Governor Howard Dean (D-VT)/Senator John Edwards (D-NC) 538 EVS, 66.6% PV , 75,275,872 Votes
President George W. Bush (R-TX)/Vice-President Dick Cheney (R-WY) 0 EVS, 33.4 PV,  37,783,970 Votes

1992

House Majority Leader Dick Gephardt (D-MO)/Senator Al Gore (D-TN)-331 EV, 38.5% of the popular vote.
President George Bush (R-TX)/Fmr. Secretary of State Al Haig (R-PA)-182 EV, 36.6% of the popular vote.
Mr. Ross Perot (I-TX)/Admiral James Stockdale (I-CA)-25 EV, 24.9% of the popular vote.

This game was very interesting. I was Gephardt, and easily won the nomination over Cuomo and Clinton (with Harkin turned off and Rockefeller also turned on) after a series of early primary wins. I had little opposition besides Cuomo, who won some big parties and could have waged an insurgency campaign against me, had I not convinced him to drop out. I got the nomination by May, and built up foot soldiers around the country. My themes were positive, with leadership, economy, and free trade being the focus. I lost all three debates, but Perot gave Bush enough of a challenge to make it look better for me. Oregon was by far the closest state, with Perot winning by 215 votes out of 1,336,827 cast.

Another "sh1t that would never happen IRL" post:

I started in 2004 in the GE as Al Sharpton with Carol Moseley Braun as VP against Colin Powell and Condi, because I wanted a challenge and I thought it would be funny to have a black man and a black woman on each ticket. I did pretty well throughout the campaign, alternating between attacking Powell on education and positive ads on Sharpton's leadership. I was leading by October. But in the last week I ran out of cash and Powell surged in California and New Jersey, which led to a sorta weird result there.



Mr Al Sharpton (D-NY)/Fmr Senator Carol Moseley Braun (D-IL) 51.7% of the popular vote, 341 EVs
Secretary of State Colin Powell (R-VA)/National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice (R-CA) 44.7% of the popular vote, 197 EVs
Mr Michael Badnarik (L-TX)/Mr Lance Brown (L-CA) 2.3% of the popular vote
Mr Michael Peroutka (C-MD)/Mr Chuck Baldwin (C-FL) 1.2% of the popular vote

Wyoming: Anderson-62.8%-104,443 votes. Carter-37.2%-61,984 votes.

I started as Anderson in the primaries. I won Arkansas, and did well in Iowa, and built a lot of momentum. I won the nomination due to Bush, Baker, and Connally duking it out for weeks. Reagan peaked rather early, and I got his endorsement (and 300 delegates), allowing for surprise wins in New York and Illinois. The general looked like it would be very, very close. But with no third party candidates, the race was a lot less tight then I would have thought. In the end, the state of Illinois was won by 1,098 votes, being the closest state (dead 50.0-50.0 tie).

Vice-President Al Gore (D-TN)/ Senator Barack Obama (D-IL): 64.8%   516 EVs   76,066,678
Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R-NYC)/ Senator Bill Frist (D-TN): 35.2%  22 EVs 41,293,745

I started the primaries off with Hillary leading everywhere but Iowa. I started running ads in all 50 states hitting her on Issue Familiarity. This raised my percentage in all states and sunk hers. I built up leads in Iowa and New Hampshire. Obama then started to make a comeback late in the game. I won both states and Hillary kept falling. Obama then beat me on Super Tuesday. I bribed Hillary to drop out and endorse me before the Colorado Primary in April. With the nomination mine, I offered Obama the VP slot and he accepted.
The General Election began and I had an advantage already. I ran tons of negative ads on Giuliani's IF and Iraq. With no natural base of support, he began to slip in the ECV. I was popular in both the South and Northeast. He won the first two debates, and I won the last. I money bombed all 50 States with Leadership and IF ads in the last month and got this result.

Democratic Primaries, 2008:



Senator Evan Bayh (D-IN)
Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY)
Former Governor Mark Warner (D-VA)
Former Vice President Al Gore (D-TN)
General Wesley Clark (D-AR)

I started as Bayh, won a handful of states early (MO, OK, SC). Clinton won most of the primaries, with me slightly edging out Warner for second and Gore and Clark taking some others. I used my PIPs to get Clark to endorse me after Super Tuesday, and Gore dropped out and endorsed me unprompted afterwards, which put me ahead of Hillary in delegate count. Warner soon dropped out without endorsing anyone and I got the nomination.

I did, barely. You have to focus on New Hampshire and Suth Carolina. That'll give him momentum going forward. You also have to raise as much money as you can so you can run tons of ads getting his message out.

Yeah Graham is hard but I've done it too. After sweeping Super Tuesday, Dean and Edwards started catching up to me, so I made Dean my VP to stop the bleeding.

Senator Joe Biden (D-DE) - 1652 Delegates, 49.3% in last poll
Governor Ann Richards (D-TX) - 1136 Delegates, 31.5% in last poll
Senator Sam Nunn (D-GE) - 619 Delegates, 19.1% in last poll

Throughout the early primaries, the race was between Ann Richards and Al Gore. However, Ann Richards took Alaska fairly easy and Nunn got second in Iowa over Gore, so he pretty soon became fairly irrelevant. Biden got fourth in Iowa, but a very strong 17% back when all the candidates were included, so his New Hampshire numbers were solidified and he won New Hampshire fairly solidly. From there, Biden managed to build momentum with close loses in The Dakotas and South Carolina and big wins on Mini-Tuesday. Eliminated Gore with a win in Tennessee and eliminated Jesse Jackson with an upset in D.C., and from there Richards held on and Nunn did too to try to stop Biden's nomination.

2008

Senator Barack Obama (D-IL)/Senator Claire McCaskill-427 EV, 54.5% of the PV.
Senator Sam Brownback (R-KS)/Governor Charlie Crist (R-FL)-111 EV, 44.4% of the PV.
Mr. Chuck Baldwin (C-FL)/Mr. Darrell Castle (C-TE)-0.8% of the PV.
Mr. Wayne Allyn Root (L-NV)/Former Congressman Bob Barr (L-GA)-0.2% of the PV.

I..I....I have no idea why I won Vermont by 2,000 votes....Montana was tied 49.3%-49.3%. I won by freaking 22 votes. One third of the Libertarian vote came from Georgia, where they got 3.3%. Obama won NY by 0.4%.

I blame the loss on my primary battle with Romney, which went on until the end. I did not clinch the nomination until NM and SD...

If Romney won just one of the final two primaries (around 20 delegates), he would have won the nomination.

I played Schmitz. He has a lot of advantages-Ashbrook's endorsement, plus the John Birch Society, the National Review, and the American Conservative Union are easy to get support from. I also tried to get Wallace's support, and almost had it, but I waited one turn too many to try again, and he withdrew from the race. As Schmitz, I came in second (with 18%) in Utah, and broke 10% in Alaska and Idaho. Montana, and Louisiana gave me about 8%. I averaged 5% in the rest of the western states, and 2% in all the other ones. I was not on the ballot in many states.

2016 version

1912 election, playing as Roosevelt (apologies for the bad screenshot)


I figured my strength was going to be in the midwest and west and played to that. I dominated both debates, but wilson hung strong. My ads began to work well later in the game and I made significant inroads in places like Ohio and Iowa while also gaining on the Pacific. Wilson dominated the south obviously, and I never really campaigned there. Taft was interesting though, he was nowhere to be seen all game and then he started making big moves in New England as well as a bunch of other random states late in the game. New York was once in Wilsons hands, by a large margin, but Taft made a huge push there late in the game. He never came close to winning, but he helped prevent wilson from getting to 266. How he ended up winning Wisconsin and Oklahoma is beyond me, but oh well.

Final totals were:

Candidate           Popular Vote             Vote Percentage            Electoral Vote

Roosevelt           17,151,233                  29.3                               219
Wilson               24,331,143                  41.5                                204
Taft                   14,134,938                  24.1                               108  
Debs                  2,967,876                     5.1                                 0


So obviously no one got a majority, which interested me because I have not had that happen in this game before. Well, the election went to the house, and being heavily republican, Taft became president. Probably the first president to win less than 1/4 of the vote, but it was certainly interesting to play.

2016 Election between

Rand Paul/Brian Sandoval
Elizabeth Warren/Martin O'Malley


Map



Totals

Candidate                Popular Vote (percentage)               Electoral Vote

Paul/Sandoval             63,869,389 (49.6)                          272
Warren/O'Malley         64,848,089 (50.4)                           266


I was down big early playing as Paul. Three bad debate performances and a bad scandal had me down big in states like VA and FL. However, I destroyed Warren in the last debate and that turned things around big time for me. I began to comeback in the midwest and west and my momentum carried the day. Before election day, NH, PA, and NC were tied and Warren was leading in NV. However, I won 3/4 of those states and that proved to be the key. On election night, after winning both OH and PA, I was confident I would do well out west and put in a strong showing there too. I lost NM by 2,000 votes, and was within a few points of warren in most Mid West states as well.

Florida was the only real outlier, could never break through there.

1960

Vice President Richard Nixon (R-CA)/Senator Prescott Bush (R-CT)-457 EV, 55.8% of the popular vote.
Senator John Kennedy (D-MA)/Governor Abraham Ribicoff (D-CT)-80 EV, 43.4% of the popular vote.
Senator Harry F. Byrd (SR-VA)/Senator Strom Thurmond (SR-SC)-0.8% of the popular vote.

The closest state was MS, with Kennedy winning by a margin about 2,000 votes with Byrd, Kennedy, and Nixon all at one time holding a lead at one point in time. I held off Rockefeller in the primaries by using a power 9 scandal, and went on to knock him out early. Johnson held out to the DNC, though Kennedy won easily on the second ballot. I had a good lead from the beginning heading into the general election.
