I'm getting a real 1976 vibe from this. But what happened in Oregon?

✓ Barack Obama: 459 (45.6%)
Donald J. Trump: 57 (34.1%)
Mitt Romney: 22 (19.1%)

Why is Nevada the same colour as Arizona and Kansas instead of Colorado and Virginia? If anything, Nevada and Iowa should trade places

A hypothetical election between Libertarian and Authoritarian parties. Note: the tickets are placeholders and I didn't even attempt to do home-state/home-region effects.



Evan Bayh (A-IN)/Dean Heller (A-NV) 271 EVs
Justin Amash (L-MI)/Kirsten Gillibrand (L-NY) 267 EVs

Battleground Map:




So, DC is solidly libertarian while Wyoming is solidly authoritarian? Eh, I don't know about that. 

Yeah, Wyoming seems like it would go libertarian. Actually, the Libertarian's base of support would probably be in the west, and the Authoritarians in the South. I could see a battleground map that looks more like this:


Libertarian: (yellow) 181
Authoritarian: (green) 199
Battleground: (blank) 153

2018 Senate elections: (lighter colour denotes pickup)

Dem +2

2018 Gubernatorial: (lighter colour again denotes pickup)

Donald J. Trump: 340 (51%)
Elizabeth Warren: 198 (46%)

Maps like this are weird because I realise just how different a 340/198 EC win looks depending on which party won it. (by the way, in a 5 point win he'd probably take Maine-statewide)

(could somebody translate these into atlas maps? Might be hard because I closed the tabs before I could get info on the EV counts for these states)





Using the existing EC I was able to get both candidates to >=400 electoral votes and a more favourable senate.

edit: why does imgur do this

THIS is the true 272 freiwal



A win without having any two states in the winning map border each other.

2020 (Trump vs. Harris):

Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA)/Governor John Bel Edwards (D-LA): 311 EV (52%)
President Donald Trump (R-NY)/Vice President Mike Pence (R-IN): 227 EV (46%)
Others: 0 Ev (2%)

Basically, we end up with a map for 2020 with the Republicans making gains in the Midwest, Appalachia, and the Northeast and the Democrats doing well in the Southeast and Southwest.
Unless something radical happens to the country in the next 4 years, most of this is very unlikely (i.e. Republican Florida and Democratic Georgia and North Carolina).

Yeah, how the hell does Arizona and Texas go to the Dems while Florida stays Republican?

Shred Brown (D-OH)/Steve Bullock (D-MT): 398 EV (51.0%)
Donald Trump (R-NY)/Mike Pence (R-IN): 134 EV: (43.5%)
Evan McMullin (I-UT)/Mindy Finn (I-TX): 6 EV : 4.4%
Gary Johnson (L-NM)/Bill Weld (L-MA): 0 EV: 4.0%
Jill Stein/Ajuma Baraka: 0 EV (0.5%)
Others: 1.1%

If this happened I would be so elated

I lol'd at Shred Brown. Why wouldn't vote for a name like that? Wink

Mondale - 300
Reagan - 238


Dukakis - 328
Bush - 210

What year would this be in? It seems a lot like a future scenario.

Roughly 2040

Only thing I really disagree with is that UT is solid red and ID/WY are swing states. Unless the Republicans go through some seismic shift and become liberal, those states are the deepest ruby red.

I agree about Utah, but Idaho and Wyoming are small enough that a population influx could change them considerably, giving them the Colorado treatment
