Don't worry, Goldwater, I'll get to you after the MI governor primary between me and Cathcon.

Cathcon: I'll do the MI Governor Republican primary map for you, at some point.  Not tonight, since it's getting too late.  Maybe tomorrow, after a good night's sleep. Smiley

Did you agree with the primary results?
Yeah, except I don't understand why Everett Dirksen would support you over me (except that you were from Illinois in that matchup and maybe even more in line with him on everything except civil rights.)  As for the GOP MI Governor primary map, here's mine:



Oldiesfreak1854- 54%
Cathcon- 46%

Cathcon gets the conservative base, but I win the primary with a coalition on moderate-conservative Republicans, Democrats, and Independents.

I'll get to you later, Goldwater.

Dirksen supported Goldwater in real life. This may be due to the strength of Goldwater's political volunteers in the state. He did it in order to maintain official control of the IL delegation. In other states, liberal Republican Governors found themselves deposed due to not submitting to the Goldwaterites. Choices were either head a Goldwater delegation, or have a Goldwater delegation happen anyway with you not in charge. Or, his support of Goldwater could've also been ideological. I do know Goldwater's strength did help in swaying Ev's decision however.

Made it 269-269 for fun.  Being the first atheist on the Presidential ticket means I get absolutely destroyed across the Bible Belt.  He probably winds up winning the popular vote by 5-6 actually, because of Southern dominance.  The West and NE are a little more friendly towards me.  My best state is my home state.

Democratic Primary:



I sweep the Bible Belt for the reason that AWall mentioned as well as many Northeastern states, but AWall's strong performance in the West and several Midwestern states put him over the top.

Here you are, Goldwater:



Oldiesfreak1854
Goldwater

(I would allocate delegates but I don't have any concrete numbers to use.)

In one of the closest Republican nomination battles in history, Governor Oldiesfreak1854 (R-MI) defeats Congressman Goldwater (R-WA) in what is portrayed as a battle between the mainstream conservative establishment within the Republican Party and it emering libertarian-leaning wing.  Goldwater wins overwhelmingly in conservative-leaning states in the South and West, while Oldiesfreak, with his modertae demeanor, carries the Northeast, Upper Midwest, the Western swing states, and the West Coast, except for Goldwater's home state of Washington, which turns out to be closer than expected.  However, Goldwater's margins in the eastern part of the state, including around Spokane, makes up for a libertarian-fiscal conservative split in King County and the other areas surrounding Seattle.  In the Upper Midwest, Indiana turns out to be the closest state.  Goldwater carries the southern part of the state, while Oldiesfreak carries the areas surrounding Indianapolis, the manufacturing areas along Lake Michigan, and the Michiana area (where voters in and around South Bend had become familiar with his record as Governor of Michigan) to carry the state.

Oldiesfreak1854 (R-MI)- 313

[I'm going to skip over the part where SJoyceFla wins the GOP nomination as I don't know how to do that realistically].

Libertarian SJoyceFla wins the cross-endorsement of the GOP, and faces drj101 in the general. Many prominent social conservatives decide to back third-party candidate Alan Keyes of the Constitution party. Drj101 would be the underdog in a normal election, but with the split of the conservative vote the Democrats see a chance to win. Drj101 runs a campaign almost exclusively focused on attacking SJoyceFla, while SJoyceFla attacks drj101 (for being too liberal) and Alan Keyes (for...well, being Alan Keyes) while also playing up his conservative economic credentials and warning right-wing voters of a split in the vote that would allow drj101 to become president.

SJoyceFla wins a strong plurality in the election and majority in the electoral college. The results in the south are very interesting, with the white vote split between Keyes and SJoyceFla, drj101 manages to win a number of deeply conservative southern states with a percentage in the 30s because of the African-American vote.


SJoyceFla 317
drj101 185
Alan Keyes 36

**Went to post this shortly after the last one was posted. Meant for Goldwater Republican. Skip me

Republican Primary
Republitarian, the freshman Senator from Washington, gains steam early on due to the endorsement of several grassroots libertarian conservatives including the Pauls. With victories in Iowa and New Hampshire, he looks to be the front-runner. However, former Governor Cathcon of Michigan manages to gain the support of the South and the Rust-belt, making the primaries a dead-heat for the majority. However, Cathcon emerges with a narrow delegate lead following the final primaries. However, at the convention, with the combined strength of the New York, California, and Texas delegations, as well as Republitarian's supporters taking control of the delegates of a number of states at state conventions, Republitarian eeks out a victory, choosing Congressman Jake Matthews of Pennsylvania for Vice President.

I don't mean to upset long standing traditions as a newbie, but isn't it a little more interesting if you try to predict who would actually win in an election between the two of you?
