     I played 1960 as Nixon. He starts out very strongly in this scenario, but even taking that into account, I greatly overperformed. I even won Kennedy's home state of Massachusetts!

     As a side note, I won Connecticut by just 326 votes!

I ran as Perot.

 Image Link Image Link 
Final PV tally was something like 38-31-31 Bush-Clinton-Perot.  I'm not sure why that happened, though... polls suggested 33-27-28 and nationwide momentum was (-9.2)-(-3.5)-(+5).  Went to the House where they elected Bush.

     Ran in 1996 as Dole. Towards the end, I was hit by one medium-sized scandal & Clinton was hit by two smaller ones. I decided to put all my energy into spinning both Clinton scandals. Ended up working well to my favor.



Dole/Kemp, 46%, 300 EVs
Clinton/Gore, 40%, 238 EVs
Perot/Stockdale, 11%, 0 EVs
Browne/Olivier, 2%, 0 EVs

I did nothing but spacebar until 3 days before the election, when I aired 4 negatives ads in all 51 states:

Golwater: 53% PV, 379 EV
Johnson: 47% PV, 159 EV

     Of course, that's because ads are overpowered. When I ran as Hoover, I began in the weakest possible position. However, ads were cheap enough that I could run them in 15-20 states per day, so I won anyway.

     I ran in 1964 as Goldwater. Umm, it wasn't a very difficult scenario. Some interesting things happened along the way, but ads were way too powerful.

When you hack ads in the Canadian version, you automatically win in a landslide. I won a majority government as the Green Party just by hacking the ad codes.

I haven't noticed the same thing in the P4E. The election isn't a landslide.

     Ads are usually much less powerful than they are in this scenario. I might try the flip side & run as Johnson. Maybe I could even win MS.

     I should mention that there were 5-6 states that were decided by 5 points or less in my favor, so a late scandal would've significantly cut into my margin of victory.

     Decided to try 1964 again, only as Johnson this time. Landslide doesn't even begin to describe this result. Johnson broke 80% in many states, got close in many more states, & even broke 90% in RI. MS was decided by 6,000 votes. The next closest state, AL, was won 56-35.

Yes, it's quite difficult sometimes.

And very weird. I lost 310-228 in the EV, but won 51.7-48.3 in the PV playing as Jean Royer.
