In my 1996 Scenario "The Contract With America" (I have yet to submit it to P4E) I ran Stormin' Norman Schwarzkoph against President Clinton and threw Perot in as a funny factor. I did quite well playing as H. Ross:



Norman Schwarzkoph/Arlen Specter: 266 Electoral Votes; 40% of the popular vote

Bill Clinton/Al Gore: 251 Electoral Votes; 41% of the popular vote

H. Ross Perot/Pat Choate: 21 Electoral Votes; 16% of the popular vote

Harry Browne/Jo Jorgensen: 0 Electoral Votes; 0% of the popular vote (over a million popular votes though)

The Republican Dominated House elected Stormin' Norman.

Ford v. Carter 1976



Gerald Ford/ Bod Dole: 313 EV 52% PV

Jimmy Carter/Walter Mondale: 225 EV 47% PV

Interesting race. I was Ford. Started out barely ahead, then I slumped quite a bit near the mid point (at one point I was down 5% in the polls and had only about 220 EV's) then started to gain momentum again by consentrating on the states where Carter was way ahead but there were a number of undecideds (Alabama, Maryland, California and New York were the big ones). Came back to win by a sizable margin, but it really could have went either way in the final week.

Man, dynamism makes it too easy, myself (McGovern) vs. Nixon



I ran a good (power 5 or 6) ad against Nixon in the beginning, followed up with ads of my own.  We tied one debate and Nixon won the other.  With a week to go, Nixon got hit with two major scandals and I got hit with one, but mine was spun down quickly.

McGovern/Schriver--61% 455 EV
Nixon/Agnew--38% 83 EV

Best McGovern states:
D.C.:  86.0%
Rhode Island:  81.5%
North Carolina (!):  80.6%
Washington:  79.0%
Ohio:   78.4%

Best Nixon states:
Idaho:  60.2%
New York:  56.7%
Alaska:  55.5%
Arkansas:  54.4%
North Dakota:  52.9%

Closest State:
Delaware:  McGovern wins 50.0-49.9  (131346 to 131124)

Mondale-Reagan was easier than I had anticipated...Reagan led throughout the campaign but I swung it to myself in the end. Smiley

Ok, who do you wanna run against what are your stats and so on?



Sooner or later I will win as Perot. Tongue

Without dynamism it's pretty hard though...PV was Clinton-Bush-Perot 34-33-32. Funny how the EV and PV were reversed; I won the EV before Bush with Clinton last, 226-194-118.

This one was darn close! Sad I got 34% of the PV and 248 EVs. Bush got 33% and 100 EVs, Clinton 31% and 190 EVs. (Clinton got Illinois, California and New York, but that was pretty much it for him.

I finally did it. As Hoover I beat FDR in the 1932 Scenario! Cheesy



Herbert Hoover/Charles Curtis: 269 Electoral; 52% (74,874,084) popular

Franklin Roosevelt/John N. Gardner: 262 Electoral; 42% (60,989,298) popular

Norman Thomas/Thomas Maurer: 0 Electoral; 3% (4,446,080) popular

William Foster/James Ford: 0 Electoral, 1% (2,398,905) popular votes

Thank God for Norman Thomas. His 7.8% in New York gave me the state and the election by 1,788 votes!

I may now have the strangest map ever:



This was a 2008 scenario with made up candidates, I was playing as a moderate libertarian-esque Democrat from NY against a populist conservative candidate from AR.

For a bit in this game, the Republican had 8-point leads in MA and IL and I had leads in ND and NE.

Close states (less than 5%)
Wyoming Dem +2.7
Georgia Dem +1.7
Iowa Dem +0.7
Missouri GOP +1.7
Kansas GOP +1.9
Hawaii GOP +2.5
Utah GOP +2.9

I decided to run the Swedish PM against Bush and loaded his stats and platform as best I could. The result:

Persson/Nuder: 54% and 425 EVs
Bush/Cheney: 40% and 113 EVs
Nader/Camejo: 3%
Badnarik: 1%

I started out 41%-45% though and it got to 41%-46% before I turned it around.

Bush/Cheney (me) v Clark/Edwards, no others.

Bush: 62% (77 088 439 votes) and 508 EVs
Clark: 37% (47 133 202 votes) and 30 EVs

Best states:
Bush:
Wyoming: 80.1%
Idaho: 79.2%
Utah: 78.1%

Clark:
Florida: 53.7%
Delaware: 47.1%
Iowa: 46.5%

(DC was 59-41 to Clark)

Closest states were Clark's 3 best. Wink

I broke 60% in both the northwest (WA and OR) and upper New England (ME, VT, NH) as well as in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Cheesy

I slaughtered Johnson as Goldwater in 1964 through two highly successful negative ads and three major scandals.



Best 5 Goldwater states:
1-Mississippi  94.5%
2-Louisiana 82.9%
3-Georgia 82.8%
4-South Carolina 82.6%
5-Florida 80.3%

Best 5 Johnson states:
1-West Virginia 53.0%
2-California 32.5%
3-Rhode Island 31.4%
4-Delaware 30.2%
5-Alabama-30.1% (only because I ran less ads here, since the state was already locked up)

For whatever reason, DC was not included in this scenario.  I also won the PV 75-24

No, this has nothing to do with Perot... this was the "The Driver - 2012" scenario, played in the standard configuration with Whitman.





Christine Whitman / Lincoln Chafee (Progressive)
Popular Vote: 36%
Electoral Vote: 311

Lindsey Graham / Bob Taft (Republican)
Popular Vote: 33%
Electoral Vote: 174

Barack Obama / John Edwards (Democratic)
Popular Vote: 26%
Electoral Vote: 53

Bob Jones / Tamara Millay (Independent)
Popular Vote: 3%
Electoral Vote: 0

Goldwater v LBJ -I

GOldwater: 61% and 485 EVs
LBJ: 38% and 51 EVs

Best states:
Goldwater:
 Mississippi: 94.1%
Alabama: 84.3%
The Carolinas: 74.6% in both
Lousiana: 74.5%

LBJ:
West Virginia: 61.4%
Hawaii: 52.8%

Funny how easy this was...

And, Old EUrope, the DUkais scenario is pretty easy to win, Dukakis is heavily favoured.

Just a weird election over all...



Me/Denny Hastert v. Gore/Clark

Close Ones!
-Lost New York by 60,000 votes
-Won Oregon by 5,000 votes
-Won Connecticut by 12,000 votes
-Won Pennsylvania by less than 200,000 votes

That's Just Messed Up!
-Gore wins Arizona by nearly 200,000 votes and loses New Mexico by around 13,000.
-Nearly winning New York, overcoming an 11 point deficit in only two weeks of work.
-Gore takes 48.5% of the vote in Kansas.

Triumphful <Deleted>-Kickings!
-California, 62.1-37.9
-Ohio, 60.5-39.4
-Michigan, 57.4-42.5
-Taking Illinois by about 80,000 votes after never seeing it go red all game with six weeks of effort.

Final Score
Me 423, 54%
Gore 115, 45%

Did you have dynamism on?  That's the only way I can account for Gore winning Arizona but not Tennessee. Tongue
