Mitch Daniels/Susana Martinez - 375 EC, 54.3% - 69,402,013
Barack Obama/Joe Biden - 159, 44.7% - 57,096,866

Closer to the end, my lead started to fade, but then I did some nationwide advertising, and a scandal came up, so I managed to pull my lead back and then some. Middle of the way I was campaigning in Rhode Island!

Obama won New Jersey by 2,000 votes, I won Oregon and Nevada by 2%.

2020

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL)/Former Governor Sean Parnell (R-AK)-301 EV, 42.7%-63,294,135 votes.
Governor Julian Castro (D-TX)/Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)-237 EV, 42.5%-63,119,006 votes.
Former Mayor Mike Bloomberg (I-NY)/Senator Angus King (I-ME)-14.8%-21,977,692 votes.

I started as Ryan, though I lost the primaries to Rubio after a series of surprise wins on Super Tuesday. Castro led through the race up until the last weeks, and Bloomberg seemed to be irrelevant. However, I pulled off a narrow win due to Bloomberg splitting votes with Castro. I came in third in DC, with 6.6% of the vote to Bloomberg's 13.5%, and came 3 points away from being third in New York. Iowa was the only surprise, and was the closest state. Castro led through the night in Iowa, and only minutes before the election night ended, I won the state by a margin of 3,000 votes, or 0.2%.

Has anyone ever done this before?

I started playing as Carol Moseley Braun in 2004 in the primaries. Won Michigan first and then Illinois, both by focusing my entire campaign on the states for a number of weeks. Was at 3-4% in the national polls but had a good number of delegates because I won both MI and IL by landslide margins (40%ish). The major candidates by the end of the primaries were Dean, Kerry, and Gephardt, with Gephardt in the lead and only a few hundred delegates from winning. I traded all my PIPs to Dean for his VP slot, which after like 15 offers he finally accepted (to get around the "___ must have his party's nomination locked up" message, I started by offering to Bush and then scrolled up, which allowed me to bypass that message-apparently a glitch in the game). Then, since Gephardt was going to win, I used all Dean's PIPs to get Kerry's VP slot, which Kerry accepted on the first offer. Then, going into the GE, I noticed Kerry had a ton of PIPs and surprisingly good relations with Bush. Just to see what would happen, I offered Bush all Kerry's PIPs for Bush's VP slot since the Dem convention happened before the GOP convention. Bush accepted, after which I got a "list index out of bounds" error and the game froze. Here's a screenshot of the final polls, after Kerry became Bush's VP:



So I started as Carol Moseley Braun and ended as George Bush, or would have if the game didn't crash. Pretty fun. I wish that it had let me continue into the GE as Bush/Kerry vs the thrid party candidates.

Pretty impressive if I do say so myself.

I was comfortably ahead in all the swing-states by mid-October, so I spent the last few weeks literally dumping $$$ in California (I think I spent about 11.5 million there)

Oregon was only about 900 votes difference.  I wish I would have gotten it, there's something symbolic that hapens after you cross the 400 EV mark Wink

1984: (Hard)

I spent 95% of my resources recruiting footsoldiers; I was tied at 42 and ended up winning 52-43, with ~100 footsoldiers in play. It was the dullest game I've played yet, but hey, 450+ EVs as freakin' Mondale is pretty cool, right?

Colin Powell/Rudy Giuliani -- 287 EVs, 54.2%
Howard Dean/Wesley Clark -- 251 EVs, 45.8%

There was a stark possibility I could've won the Electoral vote while losing massively the popular vote, mainly because Powel's margins in the non-swing states were in the 60s or better usually. I put too much focus on the Carolinas, Georgia, and Arkansas, which I lost each by about 1-4 points. I think it was okay considering I started way behind and I lost all three debates, triumphantly (though Clark won the VP debates).

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton/Former Governor Brian Schweitzer - 49.4%, 463 EVs
Senator Marco Rubio/Former Governor Jeb Bush - 31.5%, 75 EVs
Mayor Michael Bloomberg/Reality TV Host Donald Trump - 19.1%, 0 EVs

Basically, Rubio won the nomination in a gigantic fight with Bobby Jindal, who did not endorse him after winning a huge amount of later states. As Bloomberg, I put footsoliders everywhere and anywhere I could, particularly in states where my percentages were going up (California, Colorado, Rust Belt, and, shockingly enough, Alabama and Mississippi.) I did not win a single state, though I came within five points of Alabama.

Top 5 Best Bloomberg Results:

Alabama:
Rubio/Bush - 40.3%
Bloomberg/Trump - 35.6%
Clinton/Schweitzer - 24.1%

Alaska:
Rubio/Bush - 43.2%
Bloomberg/Trump - 29%
Clinton/Schweitzer - 27.8%

Colorado:
Clinton/Schweitzer - 42.7%
Rubio/Bush - 29.3%
Bloomberg/Trump - 28%

California:
Clinton/Schweitzer - 50%
Bloomberg/Trump - 27.4%
Rubio/Bush - 22.6%

Iowa:
Clinton/Schweitzer - 45.9%
Rubio/Bush - 28.1%
Bloomberg/Trump - 26%

Bottom 5 Worst Bloomberg Performances:

Tennessee - 6.1% Bloomberg
Indiana - 6.5% Bloomberg
Oklahoma - 7.6% Bloomberg
Utah - 9.5% Bloomberg
Vermont - 9.6% Bloomberg

I'm normally too lazy to post results but this one...I couldn't resist. Imagine the forum reaction if it occurred!


Michele Bachmann/Jim Demint: 71% PV, 538 Electoral Votes
Barack Obama/Joe Biden: 29% PV, 0 Electoral Votes

Now, granted, this was on Medium, but nothing was altered and there were no cross-party endorsements to mess it up. I built up in Iowa and New Hampshire, and ultimately, Bachmann narrowly edged out Perry for the nomination. I used up my 5 PIP's to get him to drop out. The economy completely collapsed in early September which took a 5 point lead and turned it into a 20 point lead, and smart money management plus debate momentum brought it to this. I have to say, with no little cheats thrown in, this might be my best performance.

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

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

Wisconsin: Anderson-55.6%-941,224 votes. Carter-44.4%-752,140 votes.
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.
