Massachusetts and Connecticut are what're most bizarre on that map.
Well, I got bonuses in both states since that's where the candidates were from. I also advertised and campaigned in both states, which was a help. I'm sure both MA and CT would have been closer in RL if McCain had done likewise, especially if Lieberman was his VP.

2008:




Mitt Romney/Joseph Lieberman - 55.9%, 374 EV's

Hillary Clinton/Mark Warner - 44.1%, 164 EV's

Some interesting percentages, to say the least. It's almost realistic, minus percentages in the South.
I bolded the parts that conflict with each other Tongue

2000:
I played as McCain and picked Engler as my running mate, Gore focused most of his efforts in the south while I spent most mine in the Midwest. the debates ended up 1-1-1 and neither one could really gain much over the other in the polls. on election day the undecided broke mostly for Gore, which sadly swung a few states I was leading in, such as KY and MO to go Gore. I won the EC he won the PV.



McCain/ Engler: PV - 48.4%; EV - 295
Gore/Lieberman: PV - 48.7%; EV - 243
Nader/LaDuke: PV - 2.9%

It's weird how Gore always seems to lose the EC even when winning the PV narrowly. The worst I ever saw was Gore-McCain playing out as 49.3-46.8 and 254-284.
I was Nader.

Went through primaries, eventually Clinton endorsed me and put me over the top, Obama refused to drop out or accept the VP slot until July, even though I wrapped up the nomination after the West Virgina primary.

So it was McCain/Pawlenty vs Polnut/Obama....


McCain really couldn't catch a break...





There were about 5 states that were decided by less than 1% - I think the last minute nation-wide network TV ad I did on my leadership pushed them over... all except, AZ, which McCain held onto by less than 500 votes.

Polnut/Obama - 450 EV - 59.8%
McCain/Pawlenty - 88 EV - 40.2%

Best state (outside of DC): CT 80.2-19.8% (LOL!!!)

Worst state: UT 40.5-59.5%

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.

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.
