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.

President John McCain (R-AZ)/Vice President Tom Kean (R-NJ) - 50.8%, 295 EV's
Governor Bill Clinton (D-AR)/Minority Leader Dick Gephardt (D-MO) - 47.4%, 243 EV's

2000 - President McCain holds steady with high approval ratings until the last couple of months, with the economy starting to go down and poor debate performances pulling the numbers close. Still, Tom Kean does will against Gephardt, and Clinton's large agreement with the McCain foreign policy weakens his case in the third debate, allowing McCain to win re-election narrowly.



Senator George Allen (R-VA)/Governor Jeb Bush (R-FL) - 49.4%, 270 EV's
Senator John Kerry (D-MA)/Former Senator Sam Nunn (D-GA) - 49.6%, 268 EV's

2004 - America's at war, and Senator George Allen, the victor over the President's personal choice Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson, proves to be a controversial nominee, and he faces the strongest Dem ticket on foreign policy in a long time, with John Kerry and Former Senator Sam Nunn battling the administration on it's handling of Iraq. In the end, Kerry wins the popular vote, but Allen wins the electoral vote.



Senator Joe Biden (D-DE)/Senator Evan Bayh (D-IN) - 53.2%, 351 EV's
President George Allen (R-VA)/Vice President Jeb Bush (R-FL) - 45.7%, 187 EV's

2008 - With the economy tanking, President George Allen faced an uphill battle for re-election. He faced a strong opponent, Senator Joe Biden from Delaware, who made an amazing recovery from his 1988 plagiarism scandal and rocked the crowned Hillary Clinton AND rising star Barack Obama. Evan Bayh proved to be a successful VP pick, and won Indiana by 8 points, more than the electoral margin.

2016 Republican Primary - A Randy Good Time!
Four frontrunners lapped the field for the longest time - Rand Paul, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, and Ted Cruz, each represented a sect of the party, and each battling tooth and nail for the nomination. Of the four, Paul had by far the strongest organization in the first primaries, and won Iowa and New Hampshire through sheer power. Underdog Scott Walker rose to the challenge after a strong second place showing in Iowa and won Michigan by over ten points. Walker's campaign finance violations, however, doomed his chances. Christie rose during Super Tuesday, winning pluralities in the Northeast, and gained enough delegates to wage a small comeback, but after more investigation into his record in New Jersey, he proved to have too much baggage to be a serious nominee. The final match-up was between Rand Paul and Jeb Bush, but by the time of the match-up, Paul had a strong lead in the delegate race that no matter how much Bush did, he couldn't make it up. Even with all the establishment support and most of the establishment money, Bush was also considered rather incompetent at campaigning, allowing Paul to notch surprising victories in Georgia, Ohio, Virginia, California, and Illinois.



Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) - Republican Nominee
Fmr. Governor Jeb Bush (R-FL) - Withdrew during the conventions, Endorsed the nominee
Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) - Withdrew after MD-VA-DC Primaries, Endorsed Bush
Governor Scott Walker (R-WI) - Withdrew after Super Tuesday, No Endorsement
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) - Withdrew before SC, Endorsed Paul
Governor Bobby Jindal (R-LA) - Withdrew after IA, Endorsed Walker
Doctor Ben Carson (R-MD) - Withdrew after IA, Endorsed Paul

2016 - A War of Someone Else's Words - Biden v. Paul
Despite having a tough Democratic primary, Vice President Joe Biden rose the victor over Iowa winner Governor Martin O'Malley and Florida winner Governor Andrew Cuomo. For VP, he picked the moderate Senator Amy Klobuchar from Minnesota, a move that inspired yawns. He faced Rand Paul, who Democrats considered the Republican McGovern, and Biden lead by 15 points after some of Paul's neo-confederate hires were brought to light. However, Paul ran a grassroots campaign, running to Biden's right on economic policy and to his left on pot policy, foreign policy, and dinged the Vice President on the drone program and the weakening economy under President Obama. Biden's campaign was plagued from the start by his constant gaffes, but was further complicated by Biden's health problems, and his confusing 15 minute speech in New Hampshire that went basically nowhere trying to talk about the future of healthcare. The debates went in a way unexpected - Paul won the first, lost the second, and managed to sway some viewers on the foreign policy debate, even as Biden won by most barometers. By election day, Paul had erased the gap and, in some polls, even led by 1 or 2, but it was surprising to most when Paul won at the end of the day, noting Biden's stronger campaign infrastructure.



Senator Rand Paul (R-KY)/Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) - 49.3%, 272 EV's
Vice President Joe Biden (D-DE)/Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) - 49.2%, 266 EV's
Others - 1.5%, 0 EV's

2020 - An Oppurtunity for Democrats
In one of the most divided fields in the history of American politics, Democrats saw an oppurtunity to defeat the unpopular President Rand Paul, but had way too much going on. the frontrunner was Vice Presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar, but she had since not given any Democrat any sort of enthusiasm whatsoever. Iowa and Florida winners Martin O'Malley and Andrew Cuomo returned, bickering and battling the field with all their force. Progressives championed Sherrod Brown, Cory Booker rose and fell quickly, and Maggie Hassan was considered a dark horse. However, the darkest horse of all was Senator Brian Schatz, from the distant state of Hawaii, whose name recognition at the start of the campaign was approximately zero. With the imploding and lack of enthusiasm for so many candidates, Schatz managed to rise to the occasion and win the nomination.



Senator Brian Schatz (D-HI) - Democratic Nominee
Fmr. Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) - Withdrew after PA, Endorsed Schatz
Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) - Withdrew after WI, Endorsed Schatz
Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) - Withdrew after FL, Endorsed Cuomo after Super Tuesday
Senator Maggie Hassan (D-NH) - Withdrew after SC, Endorsed Schatz
Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) - Withdrew after NV, Endorsed Cuomo
Fmr. Ambassador to China Gary Locke (D-WA) - Withdrew after NV, Endorsed Schatz
Governor Martin O'Malley (D-MD) - Withdrew after MI, Endorsed Brown
Senator Angus King (D-ME) - Withdrew after NH, Endorsed Hassan
Fmr. FHFA Director Mel Watt (D-NC) - Withdrew before IA, Endorsed Cuomo

A Campaign to Remeber - Paul v. Schatz
In one of the bloodiest campaigns in history, Senator Brian Schatz and President Rand Paul did battle like none other. Schatz dinged the President on his non-interventionist foreign policy, demanding humanitarian aide in Africa and rises of foreign aide money. Paul noted Schatz' left-wing record in the Senate, criticizing him on votes that expanded programs he considered already bloated. Paul had accounted for the largest number of vetoes in history, and that made people of both party mad. However, Paul again ran a strong campaign, and knocked out the leading Schatz in the first and second debates. However, Paul's foreign policy was obliterated in the third debate, with Schatz bringing humanity to the conversation. Paul looked like he could win by 5 or more, but the foreign policy debate haulted the President's momentum, and polls showed it could go either way. However, Schatz failed to use the Obama machine as well as he could have, and the Paul machine moved votes well enough to even take Wisconsin, a state Republicans haven't won since Bush Senior.




President Rand Paul (R-KY)/Vice President Rob Portman (R-OH) - 50.5%, 306 EV's
Senator Brian Schatz (D-HI)/Senator Gary Peters (D-MI) - 47.8%, 232 EV's
Others - 1.7%, 0 EV's

^Nice. What happens in '52? Eisenhower landslide?

I don't feel like making the map tonight, but Eisenhower wipes the floor with Bricker/Mickelson, something like 57-42.

The End of Two Term Presidents

2000 - President Weld wins convincing re-election

Despite a Democrat congress, Weld was able to work with Democrats and have a successful agenda. Combined with Democrats putting up a very weak nominee in Speaker Dick Gephardt, he was able to win even with a strong challenge to his right from Columnist Pat Buchanan, both in the primary and, to a lesser extent, in the general.




President William Weld (R-MA)/Vice President Dan Quayle (R-IN) - 51.9%, 391 EV's
Speaker Dick Gephardt (D-MO)/Senator Paul Wellstone (D-MN) - 41.5%, 147 EV's
Commentator Pat Buchanan (C-DC)/Congressman Virgil Goode (C-VA) - 5.2%, 0 EV's
Others - 1.4%, 0 EV's

2004 - Nunn knocks out Quayle

Vice President Quayle, defeating the President's secret choice of the more moderate Senator Lamar Alexander, ran a desperate campaign against Former Senator Sam Nunn, who was favored due to his experience. He picked Mayor Rudy Giuliani for VP, a pick that was originally praised, then eviscerated due to the Bernie Kirk scandal and Giuliani's inexperience. Nunn/Kerry won easily.




Fmr. Senator Sam Nunn (D-AR)/Senator John Kerry (D-MA) - 52.5%, 357 EV's
Vice President Dan Quayle (R-IN)/Fmr. Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R-NY) - 45.4%, 181 EV's
Others - 2.1%, 0 EV's

2008 - McCain gives Vice President Kerry a wallop

Nunn, citing age, decided not to run again, and the economic crisis doomed Vice President John Kerry's election attempt, easily losing to Senator John McCain, who received endorsements from several prominent Democrats.



Senator John McCain (R-AZ)/Governor Mark Sanford (R-SC) - 53.1%, 359 EV's

Vice President John Kerry (D-MA)/Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) - 45.3%, 171 EV's
Others - 1.6%, 0 Ev's


2012 - Dean edges McCain in close race

McCain's presidency was generally considered a disaster. Vice President Mark Sanford resigned shortly into his term after a sex scandal involving the Appalachian trail, with McCain originally appointing friend and South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham to the spot. He proved to be vulnerable, especially from the left on war policy, giving Former DNC Chairman Howard Dean a surprising opening. Showing party unity, he picked Conservative Senator Joe Manchin to be his Vice President. McCain with the un-showboaty Former Governor Mitt Romney, which left the base unexcited, and Dean won a narrow election.




Former DNC Chairman Howard Dean (D-VT)/Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV)
- 48.4%, 277 EV's
President John McCain (R-AZ)/Fmr. Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA) - 48.1%, 261 EV's
Others - 3.5%, 0 EV's

2016 - A clear end of the trend

Dean was considered a relatively average President, not as loony eyed as many expected, but not one who accomplished too much. The unpopular Deancare made him seem vulnerable early on, but the Republican primary turned into a bloodbath, with the party eventually nominating a ticket of Doctor Ben Carson and Senator Ted Cruz, two ultraconservatives. This resulted in a protest ticket, with Former Senators Lincoln Chafee and Sheila Frahm joining the race with the endorsement of Former President Weld. This resulted in a landslide win for President Dean, whose popularity continued to grow as the election came to a close.



President Howard Dean (D-VT)/Vice President Joe Manchin (D-WV) - 57.3%, 491 EV's
Dr. Ben Carson (R-MD)/Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) - 30.2%, 47 EV's
Fmr. Senator Lincoln Chaffee (I-RI)/Fmr. Senator Sheila Frahm (I-KS) - 11.3%, 0 EV's
Others - 1.2%, 0 Ev's

2016

President Obama's weak approval ratings had no bearing on Hillary Clinton, who by 2016 was riding high on the hog, leading Christie, Bush, Paul, and Cruz by margins of 6, 6, 5, and 12 respectibly. However, nobody could've predicted what was about to happen. The four frontrunners bombarded eachother with attacks and ads and it raised their negatives to the sky. Out of the blue, Ben Carson sweeps the Iowa causes convincingly, and knocks Ted Cruz out of the race. Paul wins New Hampshire, upsetting Christie, and Bush wins South Carolina. Ben Carson's grassroots operation is stronger than most expected (which was about Herman Cain levels of expectation), and Carson surprised everyone with a triple win in MO-MN-CO. Paul's grassroots support dried after Carson's surge, and Bush proved to be a weak operator, losing states like Illinois to Carson. Carson became the GOP nominee in spite of much unrest from the establishment GOP.

Which led to a crucial moment. Former Presidential nominee and Senator John McCain, furious with the Tea Party and not running for re-election, endorsed Clinton along with Senator Lindsey Graham, Senator Susan Collins, and Senator Lamar Alexander, who hailed Clinton as a "sensible, pragmatic figure who could get things done". This doomed Carson from the start, who had a notable history of gaffes. While the VP debates were unexpected (Gillespie beat Landrieu in what many thought was an inspiring and hopeful debate), Clinton decimated Carson, charging that his views were out of the mainstream. Clinton won Democrats 98-2, Independents 56-42, and lost Republicans only 24-72. This was a disaster for Republicans.



Former S.O.S. Hillary Clinton (D-NY)/Former Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) - 58.3%, 484 EV's

Dr. Benjamin Carson (R-MD)/Former Senate Candidate Edward Gillespie (R-VA) - 38.9%, 54 EV's
Others - 2.8%, 0 EV's

2020

President Hillary Clinton left office with mediocre approval ratings, facing off against a Republican Senate constantly and rarely getting much done. Vice President Landrieu decided against running for President, fearing the wrath of the voters would strike her again after he narrow loss against Senator Bill Cassidy. Meanwhile, the Republican primaries between Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Texas Senator Ted Cruz, two losers from the previous cycle, got hot and heavy early, coming at eachother with the most negative campaign anyone had ever seen. Through the darkness, Senator Cory Gardner rose and won Iowa, then New Hampshire, and after a narrow loss in Mark Sanford's own South Carolina, sweeped the race of the nation with grace. Meanwhile, Michelle Nunn, with her record of accomplishment in the Republican Senates, ran a graceful operation that focused heavily on inner state operations, and after barely losing Iowa to Senator Dave Loebsack (elected in 2016) and New Hampshire to Kirsten Gillibrand, cleaned house in the rest of the country.

The general election was one of the most contentious seen. Both candidates had high favorable, and each had a commanding control of a good amount of the other party. Gardner's pick of Charlie Baker angered social conservatives, but made him strongly competitive in the Northeast, with most polls showing he would sweep the Northeast (including Massachussets) with ease. Meanwhile, Michelle Nunn dominated in the former Safe south (her VP pick of Paul Davis, though controversial in some circles, satisified the Democratic base, since he was more liberal than her, and put a couple of points up in Kansas), with some polls even showing her ahead in Alabama (though Oklahoma and Utah were still in the 30-40 point range as they had been in the Obama administration).

As the election came to a close, however, both bases managed to come back, but a surprise twist when a video of Nunn caught her chastising workers, which immediately allowed Gardner to pull out a new nice guy ad, attacking her as a member of the political elite while at the same time not going overboard on the attack. Gardner swept the Mideast region and won the election by the narrowest of margins.



Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO)/Governor Charlie Baker (R-MA)
- 48.8%, 282 EV's

Senator Michelle Nunn (D-GA)/Governor Paul Davis (D-KS) - 48.6%, 256 EV's
