It's actually the 2008 Regional Primaries scenario -- I removed Obama/Clinton/Edwards/McCain/Romney/Huckabee at the start, so the nominees turned out to be Gore/Feingold vs. Giuliani/Romney.
I'm spacing through as Peroutka.

Polling map as of September 15th, 2008.


Note: I'm just cherry-picking the ridiculous maps.

1992



Beat Brown and Tsongas easily in the primary. Won most of the Northern states while Clinton won most of the Southern ones. Eventually won the nomination. As for the GE, Bush was winning up until the last week or so when I hit him with a big scandal and ran a massive ad campaign. Cool to win with under 40% of the PV.

It is friggan impossible to win as Feingold, it took several tries just to get him through the primaries. After I finally won the nomination with him, this happened. Angry

Romney/Jindal vs Feingold/Warner

I don't recall, its the one that came with it as the better 08 version.

I've won as Pat fricken Buchanan before (primaried Bush), I've played as Badnarick  in 04 and have made it a legit 3 way, I've even made Jim Traficant go as far as 2nd place in the 88 Dem Primary, but Feingold I just can't seem to win it Sad .

I have made Trafficant as the Democratic nominee, brought up Lane Kirkland to 2nd, had Cindy Sheehan get 5% in the general election, but, like reality, Ron Paul or Sam Browback cant win.

2008 Wonk-Edition:

I ran as Mitt Romney. Due to his cash advantage, I spent money early and developed a sizable national lead by December. I then concentrated hard on Iowa and New Hampshire, winning both. Won big in Michigan in Nevada, then lost by 3 points to Huckabee in South Carolina, which was a relief, as if I had lost to Giuliani things could have become interesting.

Won Florida handily, and swept Super Tuesday. It was soon down to Romney, Giuliani, and Huckabee, with both dropping out right after the March 4th primaries. I went into the General Election with around a 7 point lead, and held it. Clinton gained momentum after picking up endorsements and the economic collapse, but I countered her momentum with loads of cash, which kept my lead enact. Went into Election Day leading by around 7 points.

Clinton selected Richardson as her running mate, and I selected Jindal, so it was a truly historic election: Woman/Hispanic vs. Mormon/Indian.



Mitt Romney/Bobby Jindal: 55.3% Popular Vote, 377 Electoral Votes
Hillary Clinton/Bill Richardson: 44.7% Popular Vote, 161 Electoral Votes

Biggest surprise: Maryland. I contested it earlier, but as the General Election began, Clinton built up a solid lead. I actually pulled out of the state, but started airing ad's mid-October as polls tightened there. Only made one stop there in October.

Biggest win: Utah (SHOCKER!) 76.8% of the vote.
Biggest loss: D.C. (SHOCKER!) 27% of the vote.

Contested California heavily at the end, but only came up with 48.6% of the vote.

I accidently used 2012 calculator, but oh well:


2008 Election:



McCain/Palin: 233 EVs with 34.0% of the popular vote
Barr/ Ruwart: 159 EVs with 33.1% of the popular vote
Obama/Biden: 146 EVs with 32.9% of the popular vote


I played as Bob Barr.

For some reason it told me mccain won in the house. wasnt the house democrat at the time of 2008?


Anyways...

Upset results:

Ohio: Barr: 34%
         Obama: 34%
         McCain: 32%

McCain led by 0.6%

Texas: McCain: 37%
           Barr: 34%
           Obama: 29%

Barr led by 2%

Virginia: Barr: 36%
              McCain: 35%
              Obama: 29%

McCain led by 1% on election day. ( McCain led ALL Campaign, literally but by October 30th his 14% lead slipped into only a 3-4% lead.)


Most of the battlegrounds were in the south...

Most states were VERY, VERY Close. Insane election lol

2012: My Version

I have the game set up to where it's pretty difficult to beat Obama. I played as Romney, and spent about half of my energy fighting in the primary with the other half focusing on the General. Wins in IA and NH sealed it, and it was finished (I weighted momentum on both high, similar to RL).

Went into the GE ahead 2 points, and kept expanding - did very well with my finances.



Romney/Rubio - 57.1% PV, 495 EV
Obama/Biden - 41%, 43 EV
Johnson/??? - 2% (Got 18% in NM)

Illinois was very close, Obama winning 49.2-48.8 ). There were a lot of really close states, with most swinging Romney's way.

Hopefully the RL map will be something similar! Tongue

P.S. I think if Romney does win in a landslide, it will look like this, state-wise.

Obama/Romney 2012



This was actually pretty close up until the last 3-4 weeks. I then turned on Romney's integrity and he fell through the floor.

Obama/Biden: 374EV - 53.5%
Romney/Haley: 164EV - 45.5%
Others: 0EV - 1%

Romney's strongest state: UT 72-27%
Obama's strongest state (DC excluded): DE 65-34%

Closest 3 states
IN: 49.3 - 49.0% (R)
MT: 50.2 - 48.8% (R)
GA: 50.8 - 48.2% (D)

3 most unexpected...
TX: 52.4 - 46.4% (R)
SC: 52 - 47% (R)
PA: 61.6 - 37.3% (D)

Obama/Christie 2012



I replaced Romney with Christie in the primaries and spacebarred with Root. Cain won Iowa/SC/Fl and Christie won NH, followed by an odd Perry upset in Nevada. It seemed that Cain would walk away with the momentum, but lost everything except Minnesota in February. Gingrich won Washington. On super Tuesday, Cain carried ID, ND, Georgia, and Tennessee, with Perry carrying Texas and Christie everything else. Then Perry surged, and won everything except Hawaii which he lost to Gingrich and Alabama which went to Christie. He swept April 22 and came within 50 delegates of winning when the Oregon primary came around, but lost it and everything else to Christie thereafter.

Christie led the entire election, although Obama closed the gaps with the debates. Pundits declared this the election that killed the electoral college and made heads roll. Nobody knows why Hawaii and West Virginia broke ranks the way they did...

Obama/Biden: 312 EVs - 47.9%
Christie/West: 226 EVs - 49.6%
Others: 0EV -2.5%

Interesting states:

Hawaii: 54.1% (R) - 43.8% (D)
West Virginia: 52.5% (D) - 45.3% (R)
Connecticut: 50.2% (D) - 47.4% (R)

Closest state: Minnesota 49.5% (D) - 47.8% (R)

I narrowly lost the 1976 DNC as Ellen McCormack to Mo Udall. With Carter turned off, the South shifts towards Wallace, who endorsed me right before the DNC. I won NY, Minnesota, Alaska, Indiana, South Carolina, Mississipi, and Washington. I won large chunks of delegates from just about every state.

I had planned on running McCormack with someone like Wallace, or Byrd against Ford and McCarthy. Ironically enough, I added McCormack as a McCarthy veep a few months earlier, and while I continued as Udall for a few turns, I noticed McCormack did run as McCarthys veep.
