I just played a new 2012 President Obama scenario as President Obama of course. I played off against Governor Tim Pawlenty in the General (I skipped the Primaries). It was an interesting election. At one stage Pawlenty had a massive lead until I managed to pull it back with surprising results.

No candidate won a state with 40% or 60%, it was any margin in the 50's. Except D.C of course Wink. Here's the results:



Barack Obama/Joe Biden (D): 343 EV, 50.4% of the PV (59,826,877)
Tim Pawlenty/Chuck Hagel (R): 195 EV, 49.6% of the PV (58,937,808)

Can we get a link?

Obama: 235 - 53,527,593 [45.1%]

You think that's funny, I was playing as Obama against Pawlenty and for most of the night, Pawlenty was leading in MA. Then Obama came from behind and won MA by 2 points Tongue

BTW: Here's another interesting result I got when I played the 2010 - California Gubernatorial Election scenario:

The Californian House elected Attorney-General Brown. Even though I won the Popular Vote Sad

That's the County that Gray and Brown were fighting for and he won it by a point.

Were Nebraska and Kansas apart of your strategy or did you some how manage to win over the 20+ undecided voters on Election Day?

Those two just kinda randomly fell in my column at the very end....that and Kentucky. Though polls had me up in West Virginia and Virginia but I definately lost those.

2008-Ultimate:

Gore (me): 68% PV, 538 EV
Cheney: 31% PV, 0 EV
In DC, Cheney received just 79 votes.  His best state was Alaska, where he got 45.9%.

I almost did this with Easley a while back, but lost Alaska.  This is the second time today I've won every state (I did this with FDR in a 1932 scenario earlier today, but only got 60% PV).

I have such boring maps:



Total Votes: 117,360,424

Me: 337 - 65,055,829 [55.4%]
McCain: 201 - 52,304,594 [44.6%]

John McCain/Condoleeza Rice (R): 320 EV, 50.7% (61,667,094)

Ted Strickland/Joe Biden (D): 218 EV, 49.3% (60,047,747)

I ran as Governor Ted Strickland of Ohio. You know what I usually do in President Forever so theres no point explaining it. And this was the result. I lost Illinois by about 0.5 points. Stupid Game.

This was 2012 - President McCain by the Way. You can find this scenario, as long as many other ones for President Forever + Primaries Here

 Everytime I have Condi as my running mate, Alabama quickly becomes a swing state. If I win the state, it's by 2 or 3%

I am surprised as that has never happened to me, though on many occassions the Republican has managed to win half of New England and lose most of the South. Stupid Game. That's President Forever + Primaries for you, the results are not realistic. As you can see in many maps posted.

United States Senate 2006



Map Key:

Republican
Democratic
Bernie Sanders Independent
Note: Joe Lieberman's Connecticut for Lieberman is coloured red because he is caucusing with the Democratic party.

I ran as the Republicans led by Kay Bailey Hutchinson of Texas in the 2006 Senatorial Elections. I managed to pull off a surprising win by managing to hold onto seats in Montana, Missouri and Rhode Island. I also managed to win Bob Menendez's seat in New Jersey. Some of the states were really close, when I mean close they were really close. Here are the results in those seats.

Virginia:
Jim Webb (D) 50.0% (1,367,819)
George Allen (R) 50.0% (1,365,977)

Missouri:
Jim Talent (R) 50.6% (1,097,587)
Claire McCaskill (D) 49.3% (1,068,075)

Montana:
Conrad Burns (R) 50.7% (175,260)
Jon Tester (D) 49.2% (169,889)

New Jersey:
Thomas Kean Jnr (R) 50.7% (1,660,858)
Bob Menendez (D) 49.2% (1,610,800)

Rocky, where did you find this scenario?

I don't know if they have it for P4E, I downloaded the same scenario for PM4E.

Ugh.. Seriously, I love this game, but sometimes I dunno. I played as Evan Bayh. I somehow managed to win Iowa and South Carolina, and barely beat Obama for the nomination, and chose Mark Warner as my veep. The Republicans were pretty simple. I ran all the candidates, and Rudy took and early lead and just kept on movin up. Rudy took McCain as his veep. At the start of the campaign, we started at a lead, with Rudy taking New York and California. He kept on fumbling, and took a few scandels pretty hard. By the end of the campaign I had a decent lead, having about 290 EVs in my pocket. Most of the states had 17% undecided.

 Map at the end of the results.



Bayh/Warner- (Me) 432 EVs, 57%
Giuiliani/McCain - 106 EVs, 43%

 There were no third party candidates.

 I was ahead in Virginia by a decent margin, and close to winning IN and OK. For some reason, the last two weeks Rudy focused on states like New Jersey, California, and some more
Northeast states. I took advantage of it and went for some different swing states, and it ended up working well for me.  Rudy had NJ in his pocket for most of the election.

Arnold Vinick/Ray Sullivan (R): 313 EV, 49.4% of the PV (59,940,988)
Matthew Santos/Leo McGarry (D): 225 EV, 48.6% of the PV (58,966,386)
Seth Gillette/Sydney Wade (I): 0 EV, 2.0% of the PV (2,423,303)

In this 2006 West Wing scenario, I ran as Independent candidate Senator Seth Gillette of North Dakota. My main focus in this campaign was the state of Vermont. Though I only wound up with 9 percent of the vote, I did play a spoiler in the state causing Vermont to vote for Vinick. However this was not my best result as Gillette. In North Dakota, New Mexico and Arizona I did crack 10 percent.
