I once won as Bachmann. That was a fun one... didn't shift on any issues, either. Three really tight primary wins in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina gave me very little boost, so I had to resort to odd states here and there. It was a five man race between Cain, Gingrich, Romney, Perry, and me until the non-Romneys dropped out. Except the support would always unanimously break for someone else. It was very fun.

The general was easy.

1968...

Kennedy/Muskie - 276EV - 43.2%
Nixon/Romney - 216EV - 42.1%
Wallace/Whogivesatoss - 45EV - 14.8%

I started out after a very ugly primary race against Humphrey, despite dominating him. Once the general started I only led in WV, MA, IL and PA... I never led the polls nor the electoral count... but I started getting more positive coverage and used the last week to to run two national positive ads, and it seems the undecideds broke heavily for me.

This was a good one. I turned Cuomo, Kennedy, and Bentsen on for the Democratic nomination. I played DuPont in the 1988 primaries. I was able to win the RNC when Robertson endorsed me. I was unprepared for Bentsen, however. I was expecting the Kennedy delegates at the RNC to break for Jackson. They did not. So all my anti Jackson ads and scandals became useless. Great game Smiley



Senator Lloyd Bentsen (D-TX)/Governor Michael Dukakis (D-MA)-294 EV, 45.8% of the popular vote.
Former Governor Pete DuPont (R-DE)/Congressman Jack Kemp (R-NY)-244 EV, 44.9% of the popular vote.
Former Congressman Ron Paul (L-TX)/Mr. Russell Means (L-CA)-4.7% of the popular vote.
Mrs. Leonora Fulani (NA-DC)/Mr. Fred Newman (NA-NY)-4.6% of the popular vote.

Cuomo/Clinton - 313 EV - 39.2% PV
Bush/Quayle - 217 EV - 36.8% PV
Perot/Stockdale - 8 EV - 24% PV

Played Cuomo in the primaries. Won most of the early states save Iowa, but Clinton made it a battle to June 2 for delegates with narrow victories in Southern states. I secured the nomination on June 2 by about ~20 delegates, with 100 to Tsongas and Brown each, and Clinton had the rest. Brown endorsed me and I made Clinton my running mate.

Gerald Ford: 1976

President Gerald Ford (R-MI)/Senator Robert Dole (R-KS)-527 EV, 59.5% of the popular vote.
Former Governor Jimmy Carter (D-GA)/Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV)-12 EV, 37.2% of the popular vote.
Former Senator Eugene McCarthy (I-MN)/Multiple Runningmates-3.2% of the popular vote.

I was lucky to get a good deal of momentum in the primaries, as well as getting (for a hefty price) Mo Udalls endorsement. Reagan was never a real threat, though he did come 0.1% away from winning New Hampshire. I used ads to blast Carter on all sorts of issues, and had a powerful level 9 scandal in the last week come out on him. I lost the first two debates, and tied on the final one. Dole beat Byrd in a very close, unremarkable debate.

Gerald Ford: 1984

Senator Walter Mondale (R-MN)/Former Senator George McGovern (D-SD)-3 EV, 34.7% of the popular vote.

And so ends the Ford trilogy. His three terms were marked by landslide victories. Now off to Bush in 1988 Wink I plan on playing up until 2012.

Played the "A giant sucking sound-1996" scenario where Perot had won in 1992 and is the incumbent in the race. I played as Schwartzkopf.

Schwartzkopf/Campbell: PV - 42.5%; EV - 483
Richards/Wilder: PV - 29.2%; EV - 30
Perot/Stockdale: PV - 28.3; EV - 25

The race was a three way tie up until the conventions then I just destroyed them the rest of the campaign

2012 Scenario


Fmr. Congressman Newt Gingrich (R-GA)/Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL)-- 287 electoral votes; 66,442,032 votes (51.7% of NPV)
[/b]President Barack Obama (D-IL)/Vice President Joe Biden (D-DE)--251 electoral votes; 62,106,980 votes (48.3% of NPV)

Good campaign.  Was consistently down in VA, NC, CO, and NV until the last few weeks.  Walker and Martinez were two of my biggest surrogates, which proved to be crucial!  Despite the closeness of the election, I never fell behind in the EV count on Election Night.

The closest state was New Mexico, which Gingrich won by only 3,746 votes.  Virginia was a nail-bitter too, with only a 13,000 vote victory for Gingrich.

United States presidential election, 2012



Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX)/Gov. Bob McDonnell (R-VA)--269 Electoral Votes; 49.3% of NPV (64,772,000 exactly)
Pres. Barack Obama (D-IL)/Vice Pres. Joe Biden (D-DE)--269 Electoral Votes; 48.9% of NPV (64,342,230)
Fmr. Gov. Gary Johnson (L-NM)/Jim Gray (L-CA)--0 Electoral Votes; 1.8% of NPV (2,336,284)

Election gets thrown to the House of Representatives where Perry wins.  

Closest states:
   New Hampshire (Perry by 554 votes, less than 0.1%)
   Pennsylvania (Obama by 56,584, 1.0%)
   Wisconsin (Perry by 28,895, 1.2%)
  

Most Obama-voting States:
   Washington, D.C. (91.9%)
   Hawaii (64.4%)
   Massachusetts (61.6%)

Most Perry-voting States:
   Utah (71.5%)
   Idaho (71.2%)
   Wyoming (69.4%)

I played as Obama, and this was a very interesting game.  I think I wasting too much time early-on trying to build infastructure in states like IN, GA, MT, AZ, and MO, while I neglected much of the Rust Belt (IA, WI, MI, OH) and VA.  I was leading, but a Power 9 scandal came out on me the the Friday before Election Day.  

Still, only 554 votes in New Hampshire!!  Talk about a nightmare!
