Cuomo v. Bush v. Perot. A messy primary fight saw me forced to fight back, but I still won. Performed as expected apart from a weird performance in the Upper Mid-West, poor in Upper New England and poor in the West.

Was Humphrey. Won, obviously. EV numbers:

Humphrey - 274 EV
Nixon - 219 EV
Wallace - 45 EV

Can't remember the PV numbers, but Humphrey won by about 1%.

Nixon's best state was New Hampshire, Humphrey's was Rhode Island (technically it was DC but that isn't a state), Wallace's was Alabama (worth noting he performed better in Alabama than I did in DC).

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.

George Herbert Walker Bush: 157
Gerald Ford: 133
John Anderson: 60
John Connally: 34
Howard Baker: 29

987 needed to win

early april update: in an upset, ford defeats bob dole in his own kansas also winning wisconsin and louisiana on the same day, thus retaking the runner up position in delegate count. for the democrats, Jimmy Carter a good seven hundred delegates away from clinching renomination, leads in the national race but kennedy and carey performing better than expected.

Bayh/Feingold vs. McCain/Palin

Final Polling Map:
Bayh: 387        McCain: 79        Undecided: 72        270 needed to win

Actual Election Result:
Bayh: 347        McCain: 191        270 needed to win

Thoughts from Election night 2008:
Returns slow coming in. Florida disappointment, endorsement of democratic paper there, called for Bayh early in evening.
McCain falls behind in popular vote count as 8 o’clock hour comes on the east coast, still a close race. Republican doing well along east coast, Bayh puts Indiana in a column for being very competitive at least early in the evening, into the 8 o’clock hour.
Bayh made a gaffe in the campaign, but a McCain ad against him on the issue backfired.
Bayh leads going into election today, but McCain closing the gap through election day.
Into midnight, Bayh over 200 electoral votes, but still more than fifty away from 270 electoral votes with California in his column. Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin a Bayh lead but still a close race. McCain leads in Pennsylvania. Florida still clearly in the democratic column, Mississippi projected for Bayh however republicans still waiting for the votes to tell the story there, not the networks and their “projections.”
At 1:30 AM on the east coast, Evan Bayh is declared the President of the United States. McCain despite calls to contest the call, John McCain concedes the election in Arizona. McCain does win Pennsylvania. To reflect, the end began to come when Bayh pulled out close races in both Ohio and Indiana. The republican won Kentucky and Virgnia. Florida still going for Bayh, despite that opposition news paper endorsement. Confirmed: Bayh wins Mississippi, Bayh takes California  by smaller than expected margin.

Warner/Richardson vs. McCain/Palin

Final Poll before Election Day:
Warner: 341        McCain: 108        Undecided: 89        270 needed to win

Final Election Results:
Warner: 205        McCain: 333        270 needed to win

A review of election coverage:
McCain vs. Warner
Sign of the night, Indiana where all crusaders were focusing their work, considered a sign of the night early in the evening. McCain carries Indiana moments after polls close, undecided for a moment there but Indiana shows McCain leading senator Warner by nearly forty percentage points. Good news thus far if Indiana is any sign. As returns continue, McCain maintains a thirty point margin or more.
McCain clearly doing better against Warner, race is still undecided though the republican winning his states by smaller margins than that of Warner. Mark Warner leads in popular vote count by about three hundred thousand votes after 8 o’clock hour. North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, Indiana also going for McCain as noted earlier. Georgia, after almost two hours of being undecided, goes for McCain. Florida undecided.
Electoral Count at 9:05 PM on east coast:
Warner: 10
McCain: 110
(McCain retakes lead in popular vote nationally, republicans cautiously optimistic. Democrats saying loud and clear, its very early in the evening. Still only having ten electoral votes can’t be a good spot to be in, but true its early. )
>1% reporting Texas:
Warner: 32, 703
McCain: 30, 310
Other: 1, 338
21% reporting Indiana:
Warner: 189, 540
McCain: 333, 274
Other: 6, 182
>1% reporting Michigan:
Warner: 14, 078
McCain: 16, 275
Other:  468
16% reporting Ohio:
Warner: 360, 064
McCain: 384, 445
Other: 6, 411
Interesting night shaping up. States considered belwhether for both sides: Indiana as has been said goes very easily for McCain, Vermont a democrat belwhether still undecided. Florida still undecided, as is Pennsylvania. A republican sweep might be called by some, however many battleground states are still undecided.
Another electoral vote count and popular vote count in some states coming after midnight. Illinois previously undecided does go for Warner. The new England area still competitive, polls closed there a few hours ago. Massachussetts for Warner, Vermont and Connecticut undecided. New York, in New York McCain leads.
Michigan is declared for McCain, was expected by both sides. No concession from Mark Warner, though looking at the map at least from the outside looking in, he is trailing. John McCain leads Mark Warner the democrat by a 52-46-2 margin nationally in the popular vote. Another electoral count and state by state update coming up. Headline: McCain maintaining New York lead as midnight hour approaches
Electoral Count at 12:11 AM on the east coast:
Warner: 105
McCain: 218
Taking you through the same state by state returns as earlier with updated figures beginning with Texas…
36% reporting Texas:
Warner: 1, 216, 811
McCain: 1, 868, 248
Other:  roughly 58, 720
(McCain declared winner in Texas)
100% reporting Indiana:
Warner: 912, 264
McCain: 1, 604, 148
Other: 28, 924
37% reporting Michigan:
Warner: 688, 042
McCain: 818, 354
Other: roughly 20, 000
(McCain declared winner, division among opposition on conceding the state or not)
69% reporting Ohio:
Warner: 1, 569, 123
McCain: 1, 712, 462
Other: roughly 33, 100
(political workers independent of both campaigns say all votes from democratic stronghold Cuyahoga county are in.)
Vote count considered slow. With almost sixty percent of the vote reporting in Alabama, Warner holds a three percent lead over McCain there, widely expected to go republican. Mark Warner begins to open up a small but consistent lead in Florida, consistent enough to be noticed. John McCain still leads in New York and Pennsylvania. Michigan declared as earlier for McCain.
At 1:03 AM on east coast, John McCain declared President of the United States. Could not defeat Evan Bayh, but wins over better known democrat Mark Warner. John McCain wins Ohio, helps put him over the top. Pennsylvania and Delaware go for the President elect. Florida, somewhat grudgendly goes for Mark Warner narrowly.
Warner concedes thirty minutes after the national declaration for the republican. John McCain opens up 1.7 million vote lead over Mark Warner nationally. Another electoral update at 3 AM, in about an hour.
The network is calling, John McCain does go on and carry New York, upset win over the democrat there. Alabama is declared for Warner. Mistake from earlier, not a 1.7 million lead but a 4.7 million lead. Big difference between those two numbers. Now more than five million votes separate McCain and Warner.
3:03 AM on east coast, electoral count:
Warner: 205
McCain: 322
Only one state is left to be declared, this being Washington state. Interesting enough, Warner still prevailed in California despite loosing Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Minnesota…only narrowly holding Wisconsin for the democrats. Interesting and fascinating night across the board. McCain next President of the United States. Popular vote lead staying the same, tightening a little but only by about three hundred thousand votes. McCain carries Washington state, late Warner surge in popular vote means little, however the republican falls under a five million vote margin. Late California returns accredited to Warner’s surge in the popular vote nationwide. Only awaiting final Alaska numbers, McCain already clearly carried the state.

Obama/Biden vs. McCain/Palin

Final Poll before Election Day
Obama: 390        McCain: 55        Undecided: 93        270 needed to win

Obama: 218        McCain: 320        270 needed to win

Reflections from election coverage
Obama vs McCain
A interesting night expected. Insiders on the McCain campaign say they don’t expect the election returns to be as poorly as what the poll predicted, some on that side say they expect to win the election despite predictions. Leaders of the Obama camp not saying anything about the poll, leaks from the campaign say they are not as optimistic as the polls were about the state of the democratic party’s campaign at this point.
Indiana considered again to be a belwhether. Goes  for McCain early in the evening, Bob Barr getting a larger than expected vote in that state. McCain leading by at least twenty percentage points with 10% reporting in that state.
At least a surprise if that is a picture of the republican’s chances nationally, but a relief for the McCain camp. John McCain leads in Vermont, what is considered a democratic belwhether. Certainly a surprise for the democrats and confirms what was thought, John McCain doing much better than what the polling indicated. Not a surprise to either side. Questions about Obama’s experience and the issue of Iran came up late in the campaign, both hurting the Illinois senator. Early indications, he might be remaining as the junior senator from Illinois.
A handful of states undecided. Wisconsin has been declared for McCain. Florida as in previous election contests described, the sunshine state is undecided. McCain leads popular vote by about a little more than 500, 000 votes. Figures from Indiana now three hours later remaining the same, McCain extends slightly by about another 100, 000 votes his lead nationally. Illinois goes for Obama by eight points, Iowa by six. Nationally, from the looks of it, a McCain win expected but not a landslide victory.
John McCain extends popular vote lead further to about 900, 000 votes over Barack Obama. News from the sunshine state, Florida called for Obama, however McCain in a very close race there with the raw vote count. Florida called for Obama, but the race there still very close in the actual votes in and counted, awaiting confirmation of the projection made for the sunshine state.
McCain lead in national popular vote closes to 300, 000 votes, Obama attempting a comeback possibly but is unclear on the electoral map. Still a number of states with polls closed for hours now, but undecided. Neither side offering a concession or victory statement. Still assumption from networks is a McCain win nationally.
Nothing official as of yet. A popular vote update from Florida and nationally coming momentarily.
62% reporting in Florida:
Obama: 2, 074, 882
McCain: 2, 059, 280
Other: roughly 51, 000 votes
12:28 AM national popular vote totals:
Obama: 29, 734, 345
McCain: 31, 823, 518
Other: 749,935
Obviously that Florida result interesting thus far. Can’t say it enough, headline of the hour. Florida projected for Obama, close race in the state, awaiting confirmation from the actual vote count on the ground of that victory. Another note, Mississippi considered a strong democratic state in the polling, with 100% reporting, McCain takes the state by five percentage points.
This turning out to be a different night than the polls predicted, obviously in every sense of the word. John McCain is President of the United States, declared the winner of the presidency at roughly the same time he was over Mark Warner, as interesting as that is.
This is almost the same type of race, Obama doing well in areas where a democrat usually does not, but the republican winning nationally. A late surge in the popular vote still expected for Obama as only not even 30% of California vote has reported, but now it won’t change the outcome. John McCain defeats Barack Obama, carrying Sarah Palin in with him. John McCain will be the President of the United States.
Missouri and Arkansas, both which showed an Obama lead earlier go for McCain, both considerably narrowly. Florida it is confirmed goes for Obama, by only two tenths of a percent. McCain maintaining more than a three million vote lead in the national popular vote. Popular vote gap hovering around three million, a little over three million now. John McCain, the President elect with the lead.
After the dust settled, the election result was what was expected on both sides. Republicans say the poll and said, okay we’ve seen crazier, lets see some actual votes being counted first. When McCain won bellwether Indiana by just under twenty percentage points and carried democrat bellwether Vermont with over fifty percent, the poll was proven wrong by all sides. Florida does go for Obama despite the drama there.

In an age of unpredictable election outcomes Bruce finds himself reelected in 1908 against an opponent whose name escapes me at the moment.

Kerry/Nunn vs. Bush/Cheney

Final Poll before Election Day:
Kerry: 324        Bush: 134        Undecided: 80        270 needed to win

Final Election Result:
Kerry: 270        Bush: 268        270 needed to win

Reflections from Election Night
Kerry vs. Bush
As election night approached, President Bush felt that despite the poll he was going to win, perhaps easily. John Kerry felt as confident as the President for his own prospects. Political analyists say that Sam Nunn on the democrat side might flip Georgia.
Election night begins, looking for Indiana. Too close to call there at the start. Bush wins Indiana, but consistently running under ten percent difference. Kentucky also for the President, that’s one undecided state in the poll already going easily for the President. Just two states reporting.
Another collection of states close their polls, Kerry ahead in Vermont. Undecided there at top of the hour, Georgia and South Carolina do go for the President. Virgnia left undecided as well as New Hampshire and Vermont. Ohio and West Virgnia close their polls, Bush wins both. The republican leads in North Carolina but no projection has been made.
The President leads both popular and electoral vote. Polls close at 8 o’clock. More southern strength for the President, John Kerry doing well on the east coast and in the new England part of the country.Kerry wins Florida, Illinois, Bush wins Virgnia. Tennessee undecided.
President Bush holding at least a two hundred thousand vote lead in the national popular vote. A status quo election, expected to be at least partially competitive, Kerry might still pull the race out. Bush doing better than what polling had predicted he would. Minnesota for the President but Kerry leads in Missouri, the southwest expected to be competitive. Kerry leads in early returns in Arizona and Colorado, Bush wins New Mexico. Utah as expected going very easily for the President of the United States.
The question will he be President again still remains. Indiana vote extends over a ten point margin for the President. Bush wins Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Georgia. Carrying Texas by more than two to one, and just below seventy-five percent of the vote in Utah, apparently he is taller tonight than John Kerry. Electoral vote count tightens, the President only ahead by seven electoral votes (202-195). Final results in Indiana give President Bush a 12.9% victory margin over John Kerry there. Bush retakes lead in Arizona, expected to be a close race nationally still. Missouri being probably the closest state on the board, though the President maintains a lead in Pennsylvania, no projection yet in the keystone state.
A close race in Florida despite being called for Kerry, Bush maintains a five percent lead in Pennsylvania. If Bush could win Florida, that might assure his reelection. With 84% reporting, Bush still behind there…confirmed: Florida goes for Kerry. John Kerry wins Florida with a plurality of the vote there. All eyes on Missouri and Arizona for the presidency. Missouri goes for Kerry, that is a projection there.
Going into 3 AM, still no President of the United States. Analyists say its advantage Kerry. Arizona goes for the democrat. Bush leads Washington state and Nevada, Kerry leads Iowa. Kerry fourteen away, Bush eighteen away still too close to call nationally. Kerry wins Iowa, Bush wins Nevada. Oregon could put the democrat over the top. Republicans optimistic about Oregon, with still another third of vote to come in, Kerry vote lead falling, Oregon will decide election. Awaiting a President of the United States. National Headline: Bush behind in electoral vote count, wins popular vote nationally
Back to this, John Kerry wins the election. Oregon is Kerry, the presidency is Kerry. That’s it, President Bush wins the popular vote by roughly 2.75 million votes, but looses narrowly the election to John Kerry. With 95% of national vote reporting, the President holds a 51.2 to 48.5 million vote lead, but Kerry declared President of the United States.
A close, competitive election tonight.

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.

If a burial strikes my family as too practical, I'd go for either a viking funeral on one of the Great Lakes or to be sealed up in a tomb with my closest servants and bang-maids so they may wait on my every need in the afterlife.
