A Republican candidate who completely fails at exciting either Evangelicals or Working Class Whites.

The Democratic candidate makes many highly controversial statements that alienate both working class whites and black voters.

I think Saccone has this. Remaining precincts in Allegheny are only slightly pro-Lamb.

Either a solid national win, or the Republicans aim for retaining the South/Arizona and take the upper midwest for granted.

The incumbent President is an unpopular Democrat, Michigan is stagnating/declining economically, and you run as a Republican using libertarian arguments against NAFTA.

For Goldwater: As a fiscally moderate, pro-innovation, socially insanely liberal candidate against someone like Tulsi Gabbard, attacking her on her past statements about LGBT people and on her foreign policy.

For Peebs: run as a Republican... Tongue

Avoid saying something too controversial like supporting the transgender bathroom law and don't forget about working class whites of North Carolina and you should pull it off.

Pick John Bel Edwards as your running mate and inspire unprecedented African-American turnout following a highly unpopular Republican president.

Republicans nominate a religious right extremist, Scarlet takes a relatively pro-gun stance and with a home-state advantage, narrowly wins Arizona.

Utah

Donald Trump runs for reelection and has been a foul-mouthed disaster as President, and is threatening the religious liberty of Muslims.  An unsealed deposition comes out that reveals that he pressured a mistress to get two abortions.  He was also caught on a hot mic disparaging a popular mormon legislator for his "kooky religion."  McMullin runs and splits the already depressed Republican-leaning vote in Utah, giving the EC votes to Peebs.

In the caucus:  Runs a populist, enthusiastic, youth-driven rural campaign running one v one against a Booker type.

For me:  North Carolina

Buyer's remorse from elevated hospital visits, car accidents, etc. for legal weed after revenue collapses because more states legalize. Social conservative reaction.

In the national polls, you take a very large lead over the other candidate, and a combination of the neighboring state factor and surprisingly large turnouts from Omaha and Lincoln push you just over the edge.
