1996: Constitutional Crisis
President Bill Clinton/Vice President Al Gore: 269 (47.1%)
General Colin Powell/Representative Jack Kemp: 269 (48.0%)*
Ross Perot/Pat Choate: 0 (4.0%)

*General Powell is elected President by the House of Representatives. There are immediate calls for abolishing the Electoral College. President-Elect Powell pledges to unite the country.

2000: Gore v. Powell
√ President Colin Powell/Vice President Jack Kemp: 349 (53.4%)
Vice President Al Gore/Senator Diane Feinstein: 189 (43.1%)
Ralph Nader/Winona LaDuke: 0 (2.5%)

Democrats win back control of the Senate and increase their numbers in the House in 1998 midterms. Efforts begin to repeal the Electoral College. Aided by a strong economy and bipartisan support Colin Powell faced no strong opposition from Former Vice President Al Gore and crushed him in his reelection.

2004: America at War
√ Vice President Jack Kemp/Senator Judd Gregg: 532 (63.9%)
Representative Dennis Kucinich/Representative Ron Paul: 6 (35.1%)

The US War in Afghanistan, following the 9/11 Terrorist Attack saw President Powell's approval ratings skyrockets. Coupled by a strong economy and a nation at war, Americans rallied around President Powell and Vice President Kemp easily defeated Congressman Dennis Kucinich, (who selected fellow Republican Ron Paul as his running mate) in the greatest landslide in American history. Kucinich carried only the state of Vermont by 0.01%.

2008: Going for Broke
√ Governor Rudy Giuliani/Senator John McCain: 300 (49.3%)
Governor Christine Gregoire/Senator Jeanne Shaheen: 238 (48.9%)
President Kemp presided over an end to the War in Afghanistan and received praises for his handling of the conflict, but his focus on the economy faltered. Democrats regained control of the House in 2006, effectively preventing Kemp from getting any of his economic programs through Congress. Citing his health and age President Kemp announced in early 2007 that he would not be a candidate for President in 2008. Vice President Judd Gregg initially considered a run, but decided against it, leaving the field wide open. Governor Rudy Giuliani (who succeeded Pataki, after he ran for the Senate and won in 2000) and Senator John McCain were the Republican Ticket against Democrats Governor Christine Gregoire and Senator Jeanne Shaheen. Despite the economic crash Giuliani managed to prevail in another closely divided election.

2012: Clinton Returns
√ Former President Bill Clinton/Governor Brian Schweitzer: 425 (57.7%)
President Rudy Giuliani/Senator Jim DeMint: 133 (41.1%)

Democrats nominated Former President Bill Clinton to challenge President Giuliani, who was still dealing with the aftermath of the Great Recession and with Democrats firmly in control of Congress, he was powerless and his approval rating dipped into the 40s. In the wake of a conservative backlash, John McCain stepped aside and Jim DeMint was nominated to run for Vice President on the ticket. Clinton rode in wave, crushing Giuliani in the popular and electoral vote; winning the second term he never got and breaking Republican's sixteen year lock on the White House. (The Electoral College was effectively abolished in the spring of 2012, via the 28th Amendment and would go into effect for the 2016 Presidential Election)

2016: Popularly Elected

√ Vice President Brian Schweitzer: 52.7%
Senator Rick Perry: 31.5%
Governor Gary Johnson: 13.4%
Other: 2.5%

Vice President Brian Schweitzer rode into the White House with his folksy charm and no-nonsense approach (and with some help from Bill Clinton). In the first election with the electoral college, Schweitzer won decisively defeating Texas Senator Rick Perry. (Under the old system Schweitzer would have won 457 electoral votes to Perry's 76; a devastating landslide). This election assure Democrats twelve more years in power, with the election of Kirsten Gillibrand in 2020 (Schweitzer chose not to run) and reelection in 2024.

One Party Rule

1968:


Nixon/Agnew 43.4% 301
Humphrey/Muskie 42.7% 191
Wallace/LeMay 13.5% 46

1972:


Nixon/Agnew 60.7% 521
McGovern/Shriver 37.5% 17

1976:


Ford/Bush 50.1% 394
Carter/Mondale 47.9% 144

Ford and Bush's avoidance of major gaffes during the Presidential debates allows the ticket to continue to gain momentum for an upset victory.

1980:


Reagan/Bush 49.6% 283
Kennedy/Glenn 48.8% 255

Kennedy appeared to be a shoo-in with stagflation under the Ford administration and a divided Republican Party after Governor Reagan's primary victory over Vice-President Bush. However, an October Surprise in the form of the Iranian government releasing the American hostages gave Reagan the boost needed to win the election.

1984:


Reagan/Bush 54.8% 421
Hart/Dukakis 44.6% 117

A recovering economy, Reagan's personal charisma, and Hart's marital indiscretions enable a comfortable re-election for the President.

1988:


Bush/Quayle 53.4% 426
Dukakis/Bentsen 45.7% 112

1992:


Bush/Quayle 38.0% 275
Clinton/Gore 38.6% 259
Perot/Silber 22.7% 4

Divided opposition enables the incumbent to narrowly prevail despite a recession, largely thanks to Senator Gore's inability to deliver his home state for the Democratic ticket. Democrats are frustrated by the loss in the Electoral College despite obtaining more popular votes.

1996:


Dole/Kemp 48.8% 274
Cuomo/Gephart 48.8% 264

President Bush's immense popularity is just barely enough to drag Senator Dole across the finish line, after an easy primary victory over Vice-President Quayle. Democrats blame Ralph Nader for siphoning votes from Cuomo.

The Landslides of President Mondale



President Gerald Ford (R-MI)/Senator Bob Dole (R-KS) - 49.8%, 284 EV's
Governor Jimmy Carter (D-GA)/Senator Lloyd Bentsen (D-TX) - 48.7%, 254 EV's

1976 - Ford narrowly wins election against Jimmy Carter, as Bentsen proves to be little electoral benefit and Ford's gaffes are kept to a minimum.



Senator Walter Mondale (D-MN)/Former Governor Terry Sanford (D-NC) - 54.1%, 489 EV's
Congressman Phil Crane (R-IL)/Congressman Jack Kemp (R-NY) - 44.2%, 49 EV's

1980 - As a revival of Hubert Humphrey, Walter Mondale wins the Democratic Nomination, picking North Carolina Governor Terry Sanford as VP, and faces an easy election over a weak Republican field, which produces Congressmen Phil Crane and Jack Kemp.



President Walter Mondale (D-MN)/Vice President Terry Sanford (D-NC) - 58.7%, 528 EV's
Former Vice President Bob Dole (R-KS)/Congresswoman Milicent Fenwick (R-NJ) - 40.0%, 10 EV's

1984 - The Mondale years were considered a new era of prosperity for the country. With new programs benefiting the American people, Republicans had to dig back in order to find their nominee - Former Vice President Bob Dole rose to the challenge. He picked New Jersey Congresswoman Milicent Fenwick to shake up the race. Unfortunately, this didn't help anything, and people called out the Congresswoman as unqualified to be Vice President. Mondale won in a landslide, with Dole only winning Kansas.

The Post-Mondale Years



Vice President Terry Sanford (D-NC)/Senator Daniel P. Moynihan (D-NY) - 52.8%, 416 EV's
Former Senator Paul Laxalt (R-NV)/Governor George Deukmejian (R-CA) - 45.3%, 122 EV's

1988 - President Mondale's approvals held in spite of some last minute scandals, but Sanford suffered from them during the campaign, and by the time of the conventions, Lexalt lead the Vice President by 20 points. However, Lexalt ran a particularly poor general election campaign, refusing to fight back on accusations of conceiving a child out of wedlock, and George Deuk, inspite of his popularity in the state, did very little to push California to the Republican Party.  Ultimately, Laxalt lost big time to Sanford. Still, the Republicans did better than expected in the Midwest, even though they lost those states too.



President Terry Sanford (D-NC)/Vice President Daniel P. Moynihan (D-NY) - 40.5%, 326 EV's
Senator Dan Quayle (R-IN)/Former Majority Leader Howard Baker (R-TN) - 38.9%, 212 EV's
Businessman Ross Perot (I-TX)/Vice Admiral James Stockdale (I-IL) - 19.8%, 0 EV's

1992 - Sanford faced a tough 4 years, but he also faced relatively weak opposition. The troubled Republican Party nominated gaffe-prone rising star Dan Quayle for the Presidency, and for VP, picked old concensus builder Howard Baker, in his early 70s. Ross Perot performed strongly, but took from both candidates, so Sanford won narrowly, even with 41% approval.



Senator John McCain (R-AZ)/Former Governor Tom Kean (R-NJ) - 46.8%, 280 EV's
Vice President Daniel P. Moynihan (D-NY)/Governor Bill Clinton (D-AK) - 45.7%, 258 EV's
Businessman Ross Perot (R-TX)/Economist Pat Choate (R-OK) - 6.3%, 0 EV's

1996 - In spite of a charismatic VP and a popular President, Daniel P. Moynihan could not fight the anti-Democratic sentiment of the nation. John McCain proved to be a popular candidate, and even with poor debate performances, managed to win, even picking up New Jersey thanks to Tom Kean as VP.

I could see Bill Clinton knocking McCain out in the 2000 debates. Problem is the relatively good economy at the time.
