McCain seems to carry Maine a lot, for some reason. Don't get WV or NV. And how did you not carry OK or the Dakotas?

edit: Alaska?

Any Republican candidate in President Forever + Primaries wins the state of Maine A LOT. Hell even Tim Pawlenty won Maine, now that would never happen in RL. And if Pawlenty was somehow nominated for the Presidency of the United States in the near future and won Maine, I would be very, very scared.

That's funny, I always win ME.

I think I've lost it as the Dem... maybe twice - and both of those were landslides.

As a Dem I usually win it with 52-56%.

Moments ago I ran as Mayor Michael Bloomberg against Senators Barack Obama and John McCain. However this time, I did not begin to play from 2 weeks out from Election Day. I actually started at the beginning. I carefully selected the states in my strategy and ran commercials often my views on the major issues of the campaign (Personal Tax, Health Care, War on Terror) and it worked. Thanks to my strategy this is how the Electoral Map looked on Election Day:



Obama/Biden (D): 204 EV, 43.5% of the PV
McCain/Sanford (R): 181 EV, 40.3% of the PV
Bloomberg/Zinni (I): 0 EV, 4.1% of the PV
Undecided: 153 EV, 12.0% of the PV

As the Election Day map suggested, the 2008 Presidential Election was going to be close. And it was, very, very close. The Election came down to Missouri and it's 11 Electoral Votes. McCain led until Obama pulled away when 75% of the vote was counted. Obama ended up winning Missouri and thus the Presidency of the United States by 5,024 votes.

Many other states were quite close in this Election too. Most notably Ohio and West Virginia. Ohio ended up giving it's 20 Electoral Votes to McCain by 11,000 votes, whilst West Virginia gave it's 5 Electoral Votes to Obama by 5,000 votes.



Barack Obama/Joe Biden (D): 273 EV, 45.8% of the PV (46,744,934)
John McCain/Mark Sanford (R): 265 EV, 43.2% of the PV (44,090,351)
Michael Bloomberg/Anthony Zinni (I): 0 EV, 10.9% of the PV (11,131,865)

I think the person that designed the scenario ed up the percentages in Texas and California. On numerous occassions when I have either been playing as a Republican or a Democrat, I have always scored massive wins in either state.

OK, I ran as my NY based billionaire independent.

I focused on a few states ME, IL, NY, CT, MO, MT, CA, OR, TX and SD

I really made things messy.



Obama/Easley - 255 EV - 35.5%

McCain/Huckabee - 247 EV - 35.9%

Polnut/Hagel - 36 EV - 28.6%

Obama is elected by the house.

States of interest

IL - I 40 D 38 R 22 - yes I took IL from Obama.
ME - I 36 R 32 D 32
MO - I 34 R 34 D 32
NY - D 38 R 33 I 29

A few days ago, I played as Senator Jordan Lyman in the 1956 Manchurian Candidate scenario for the orginial President Forever. And this was one of the closest Elections, since I began playing President Forever.



Jordan Lyman/William Richards (D): 267 EV, 47% of the PV (37,320,826)
John Iselin/Adam Smith (R): 264 EV, 47% of the PV (37,210,168)
James M. Scott/Bennet Marco (I): 0 EV, 4% of the PV (3,702,975)

I won the White House and saved America from a Communist take over! I honestly thought I wouldn't win as Lyman as things were not going my way, but thankfully the Election came down to Washington, where a day prior to the Election I was leading Iselin 57-41 in the polls.

Run a massive number of ads with 5 days before the end of the campaign, in every state where the lead is under 10% either way.

Once again that is one strange map. What did the Electoral Map look like on Election Day? Were there many tossups?

A fair number of states were tossups, but my momentum was in the 800's, so I figured most of them would go for me.
