2000
McCain 288 v Bradley 250
Nader has less traction with Bradley doing a better job of unifying the left, while there is more breakaway support on the right for Howard Phillips and Pat Buchanan. Nevertheless, McCain manages to win with the support of independent voters.


2004
Bush 283 v Edwards 255
Edwards does better than Kerry in the South and some parts of the Midwest, but struggles a bit on gravitas.


2008
Clinton 365 v Huckabee 173

Clinton takes MO but not IN. AZ is a narrow win for Huckabee.

2012
Obama 332 v Santorum 206
Same states, different percentages as versus Romney. Santorum has trouble with social and foreign policy moderates, but doesn't come off as out of touch towards the poor.

And in advance here's the last round:

2004: Bush vs Edwards

9/11 strikes, and tragically President McCain is one of the victims having been in that part of the Pentagon. This ultimately makes most of the term a George Bush presidency like IRL, and it goes the same way. He chooses Tom Ridge though.

The Democrats narrowly nominate populist Senator John Edwards over war veteran John Kerry, who hopes to bring the issues back to domestic. He decides to pick General Wesley Clark just to be safe



President George Bush (R-TX)/ Fmr. Governor Tom Ridge (R-PA): 270 EV, 49.6% PV
Senator John Edwards (D-NC)/General Wesley Clark (D-OK): 268 EV, 49.4% PV


2008: Fmr. Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA)// Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY)
2012: Fmr. Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA)/ Senator Barack Obama (D-IL)
