That was the idea, but I also thought that seeing if someone could come up with something might be fun, as well. Smiley

Arnold Schwarzenegger/Rudy Giuliani run against Harry Reid/Dave Freudenthal and base their entire campaign on the theme "we f#^$ing hate the Rocky Mountains and the plains".

George Wallace gets the 1996 Reform nomination instead of Perot.

Its 1944, FDR gets the Republican nomination, Dewey getes the Democratic nomination, and the German counter-offensive at the Ardennes peaks just before the election.

Er, FDR was from New York and the South was the massive Democrat stronghold in those days.

Er, I have FDR winning New York and the Democrat and Republicans switched, so I don't see what your big problem is.

Oops, wait a minute, I didn't see that FDR was the Republican.

Carry on. Smiley

Mad props to whoever can figure this one out (I didn't make this randomly):

That's almost 1972 with a 10% swing in every state to McGovern... am I close?

Yeah, that's half of it. There's another part to it as well.

Bah, I haven't gotten it yet, but I'll be back. Tongue

I believe it's something with the vote of every state since 1824 or something.  For all the states made after 1824, it's their first vote in a presidential electin.  Am I close?

After looking through old election results, I'm going to guess that it's each state's first popular vote result on or after 1856.

is it based of a FDR election?

Nope, it's based on a presidential election roughly halfway between FDR's last election and the present.

C'mon, people, if you're thinking this hard about what convoluted mess the answer could be, you're thinking too hard. Smiley

Something like a 5 point swing to Carter in Ford states, and vice-versa in Carter states.  This wouldn't explain Wisconsin though.

Oops.  I somehow missed changing Wisconsin.

You're correct; the answer was "a five-point swing to the loser in every state".

Uh... 1964 with a strong third-party candidate?

I have no clue whatsoever.

here's a hint, it has nothing to do with candidates, it's about an issue...

Red = State has a progressive income tax
Blue = State has a flat income tax
Green = State has no income tax

Isn't Alaska wrong?

I'm assuming that that's just a mistake, because every single other state works with the above scheme.

EDIT: Also, come to think of it, Florida should be green as well.

Bush/Douglas vs. Lieberman/Kennedy in October 2001.  But, in the campaign, Ted Kennedy dies and Patrick Kennedy takes his place.  Smiley

In October 2001, wouldn't the general election have been already over? Tongue

He's referring to the fact that it's right after 9/11.

Aha.

Non-political, and definitely a waste of time, but nonetheless:
Image Link

It almost looks like it would be...

Red - no occurance of the letter A
Blue - one occurance of the letter A
Green - multiple occurances of the letter A

...but there are several states for which this doesn't work.

Am I on the right track?
