I just got the Demo, played as Paul in the 2008 GOP Primaries, and won Iowa, NH, and SC, each time I was polling in the 7% area too.

Im buying the full version tommorow.
A great game Smiley Consider waiting, the 2012 version should be coming out very soon. That's what I'm waiting on.

I will definatly get that. The mods look epic. 1968 especially.

Don't get too excited Tongue I remember in the older versions of P4E+P, really minor candidates (Gravel, Kucinich, and Paul, mostly, though I saw it happen with Hunter once too) would somehow insanely over-perform in the primaries.

I've seen Hunter and Dodd win randomly, other wise, nothing to bad.

An awkward one... during set up, I forgot to not close the Independent.... which is me also.

So the contest was

D: Polnut/Richardson
R: McCain/Palin
L: Barr/Eh... I don't care
I: Polnut/Hagel

So end result....



Polnut/Richardson - 448 EV - 50.3%
McCain/Palin - 90 EV - 37.8%
"Libertarians" - 0 EV - 0.5%
Polnut/Hagel - 0 EV - 11.4%

Clinton/Gore- 322, 41.6%
Forbes/Kemp- 216, 41.2%
Perot/Choate- 16.2%
Nader- 0.3 %

I played as Perot, struggled the whole campaign to get up to 8%, but somehow I got 16%. Must have a hell of a glitch. Clinton won by 3,000 votes in California, it took the whole night to declare a winner. My best state was Montana where I got 31%, and almost beat Clinton.

(Sorry I used the 2012 map for this)I did a run through of my created "United States - 1800 Election" to see if there's anything I need to change. North Carolina was the tipping point, Adams won it with 50.3% to Jefferson's 49.7%.


(Federalist)-John Adams,MA/Charles Pinckney,SC: 79EV, 48.1%
(Democratic Republican)-Thomas Jefferson,VA/Aaron Burr,NY: 59EV, 51.9%

2004:



Rep: Bush/Cheney; 275 EV's, 48.3% of PV
Dem: Wesley Clark/Bill Richardson; 263 EV's, 49.2% of PV
Ind: Nader/Camejo; 0 EV's, 2.5%

I played as Wesley Clark in a 2004 scenario.  I hammered Bush on foreign policy, but he won the economy.  On the day before the election I was ahead 52-45 nationwide.  Internal polls had me uo 53-43 in California.  I was the heavy favorite going into election night, and as results poured in it looked more and more likley that I would win a big victory.  Alas, Bush won California by a mere 217 votes!!!  I was disapointed and amazed, to say the very least.

Here are results from a scenario I created, based on the latest reset of Virtual Politics. Bonilla and Palin hammered each other, with Palin at the beginning leading big. The race tightened and by the end, Bonilla had unleashed waves of scandals on Palin, further tightening the race. The election eventually came down to either Minnesota or Mississippi, with Mississippi being won by Bonilla by 49.8% to Palin's 49.7%.


(Democratic)-Gov. Basilio Bonilla,PA/Rep. Michael Holmes,TX: 270 EV, 47.9%
(Republican)-VP. Emma Palin,CA/Rep. Rick Andora,FL: 268 EV, 49.9%

2012

Obama/Biden - 462 EV - 53.2%
Romney/Rice - 76 EV - 38.1%
Paul/Crackpot - 0 EV - 8.7%

While Paul didn't crack 9% nationally, he did well enough in GA, AZ, MT, KY, SC, LA and TX that he certainly cost Romney those states.

FYI

CT: Obama: 56 Romney: 42
NJ: Obama 54 Romney: 42
GA: Obama: 47.5 Romney 47.4
AZ: Obama 46.2 Romney 46.0
TX: Obama 45.1 Romney 44.9

Okay.. Polling did not suggest a result even remotely like this. But I suppose my 'bombs away at the last minute' strategy worked as always.



Christian Mattingly/Chuck Baldwin: 241 EV, 36.5% PV
Wesley Clark/Bill Richardson: 190 EV, 31.6% PV
George W. Bush/Richard Cheney: 107 EV, 31.9% PV

2008:



Played as John Thune, lost to Al Gore. I'm actually really proud of this scenario. As you all know, sometimes when there is a split convention, the the winning candidate from that convention goes into the GE in a huge hole; mine was 69%-12%. I managed to close the gap to 53-46, and probably could have won if it was another week or two delayed.

Finally bought the full version...Lost a 50 state landslide as Romney to Clinton, and lost as Gerald Ford in a rematch against Carter by a small margin.

President George Bush/Pat Buchanan-393 EV-42,404,834
Governor Bill Clinton/Senator Al Gore-89 EV-36,494,928 PV
Ross Perot/Pat Choate-56 EV-31,197,103 PV.


Started as Cuomo, and narrowly lost the DNC to Clinton. Took over as Clinton/Gore, but ended up wasting my time attacking Perot (and taking too many of his positions), which allowed Bush to use numerous scandals against me.

There used to be a 1968 Scenario. But the download site has been taking down and no one can get in touch with the original creator.

Played as VP Bush in 1988-easily won the primaries over Pat Robertson and Bob Dole, and picked Dole as my running mate at the 1988 convention. Dukakis won the Democratic primaries, though Simon and Jackson put up a fight. He pulled a Cheney and got Kennedy on the ticket. I won (albeit narrowly), so I figure Im getting better..

Vice President George Bush/Senator Robert Dole-286-45.2
Governor Mike Dukakis/Senator Ted Kennedy-252-41.4%
Former Rep. Ron Paul/Activist Russel Means-7.0%
Activist Leonora Fulani/Activist Fred Whitfield-6.3%
