Al Gore wins in 2000 following two terms of Jerry Brown, from the list I recently posted.

Based on some recent thoughts from one of my classes dealing with the Populist movement.

EVs are 244-100-100, so a Rep Victory, though the PV favors the Dems.

Played president forever 2008 for nostalgia earlier today and got a very interesting result for Clinton vs McCain (starting from primaries).  With a third party split the reps only got 100.  Here's a more realistic version, though.



374-164

PV 54-46

Fairly certain this has been done before, but my take on a Huey Long survives scenario.  Here he runs on his own party ticket in 1936 as a statement, with little fear that the republicans could win the election even with the split in the dems.  Didn't think up a catchy name for the new party, sorry.



Dem 315
Rep 99
Ind 117

I'd say possible, but only in a very very specific set of circumstances.  The Dem candidate's homestate would have to be Texas, and they'd have to be one hell of a candidate as well as on the conservative end of the party, probably with in-state regional politics coming into play just right.  To compensate, half of the Rep ticket is probably a New England conservative.  While MD has been mentioned, WA is another anomaly that's hard to explain.  Careful candidate selection indeed.

Yeah, if you don't mind, here's my take on the scenario.  Granted, it's basically handwaved that Huckabee is suddenly in.  NHI probably had more backstory to his map.



Obama:  431
Romney:  71
Huckabee:  36

Based on a comment I saw on a news site (typically a terrible source of inspiration, but eh).  Here's 2016, both with and without a GOP civil war.



Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)/John Hickenlooper (D-CO) - 362 EV/56.6% PV
Rick Santorum (R-PA)/Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) - 176 EV/42.9% PV



Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)/John Hickenlooper (D-CO) - 353 EV/47.7% PV
Rick Santorum (R-PA)/Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) - 134 EV/35.5% PV
Marco Rubio (I-FL)/Chris Christie (I-NJ) - 51 EV/15.7% PV

Based on my recent post in the presidents list thread, this map illustrates the underlying political differences in that TL.



Biden (P-DE)/Obama (P-IL) - 323 (52.0%)
Jindal (R-LA)/Huntsman (R-UT) - 215 (47.6%)

Should be fairly obvious.  Reps 261, Dems 277.

2016: Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)/Former Governor Mike Beebe (D-AR) vs Senator John Hoeven (R-ND)/Governor Greg Abbott (R-TX)?

He used the 2004/2008 EV #s.

Crap!  I actually meant it to be a 2016 but I guess the calc was on the wrong setting and I didn't notice!

Also, despite my love of Gillibrand, it isn't her.  Was supposed to be worse case scenario for Clinton in 2016 while still winning.

2032:



Dem - 178
Rep - 360

I've recently started a new play through of Deus Ex, which is a classic video game and perhaps the first that really made players think about their actions.  It's also a political technothriller set in a cyberpunk dystopia 2052 where nearly every conspiracy is true.  I've been thinking about maybe doing an election series based on it, seeing as the background of the universe is pretty detailed and also gives the names and states of several senators.

Some notes about this map specifically.  Though set in 2052, 2032 would have been one of the most interesting elections.  The world didn't really start to go downhill until 2030, where "The Big One" leveled much of LA and caused major damage to surrounding areas.  In the long run the global economy starts to collapse from here, but in the short run pretty much the local economy West of the Rockies takes a nose dive, never to recover.  The drop in EV in the area is actually understating that, as the census was underway during those events.  Also, in my rough draft of the TL, this is actually a defeat of the Democratic incumbent too, who really mishandled the FEMA response.  In 2031 localized disorder starts to from in the affected areas as well, though mostly confined to rural areas.

Also unrelated to all that, Michigan is on a heavy anti-regulation binge following a booming bio-medical industry making it's home in Detroit in the late 2020s, and the previous administration passed heavy regulation of prosthetics (which have advanced to the point where they can surpass natural limbs).  Also Alaska has become a hot bed for anti-global warming projects, which were also heavily funded by the previous administration.

On the map?  Because 178+360 is definitely 538.

I just added the map up, and no, 538.  Did you forget to count Ohio?

Yeah, in the process of making the map, I used 3 separate calculators, and only then did I edit the imagine URL.

What I do whenever I make an alternate EV map is first make the map normally, then match the party control using this one.  http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/electoral-college/calculator.html

Then I change the values there, using windows calc to do + or - as I go and make sure it stays 0, with the added check of using the site to see if it adds to 538.

Hey guys, been awhile.  Just a short blurb at the start.  These are from a global TL I've been working on because I can't get it out of my head.  It's not really US centric, but these maps are always fun to make.  PoD is Stalin choking to death on dinner a few days after V-E day, and also includes such fun things as a Korean War twice as long involving public nuclear blackmail.  Also has quite a few of our favorite potential presidents to love and hate.  And yes, of the 5 elections, Republicans won 4, but only the PV once.

1948



Governor Thomas E. Dewey (R-NY)/Governor Earl Warren (R-CA) - 327 EV/44.2% PV
President Harry S. Truman (D-MO)/Senator Alben W. Barkley (D-KY) - 158 EV/49.7% PV
Senator Strom Thurmond (SR-SC)/Governor Fielding L. Wright (SR-MI) - 46 EV/ 5.9% PV
