I just ran a campaign for Governor of Michigan and lost by 135 votes statewide.  It was nuts.

A strange and very very narrow comeback after trailing in the polls for weeks on end as WJB in the 1896 election.

Polling on day before election:


Actual outcome:


Democrat William Jennings Bryan of Nebraska/ Arthur Sewall of Maine - 225 electoral votes, 47.9% popular vote

Republican William McKinley of Ohio/ Garret Hobart of New Jersey- 222 electoral votes, 48.3% popular vote

National Democrat John Palmer of Illinois/ Simon Buckner of Kentucky- 0 electoral votes, 2.1% popular vote

Prohibitionist Joshua Levering of Maryland/ Hale Johnson of Illinois- 0 electoral votes, 1.7% popular vote

That looks a lot like 2004 with the colors and parties flipped.

It's interesting playing the older elections how often that seems to happen.

Played the 1968 Scenario as Eugene McCarthy. After a nailbitter primary battle with Humphrey (it was down to about a 60 delegate difference), I won, but at the cost of about half the Democratic party base, most of which went to Wallace. Nixon was ahead of me by about 15 points entering the general election, but attacking his integrity, along with a massive ad campaign following cash infusions, allowed for me to come back, and then surpass Nixon in the polls. By election day, I knew that I had the won, but I was hoping for a larger electoral success. I largely failed to achieve that, but I managed to capture all the toss-up states in which I was within 1st-2nd place.



Eugene McCarthy (D-MN)/George McGovern (D-SD) 39,424,780 46.8% / 368 Electoral
Richard Nixon (R-CA)/John Tower (R-TX) 29,226,711 34.7% / 79 Electoral
George Wallace (AI-AL)/James Rhodes (R-OH) 15,591,079 18.5% / 91 Electoral

Is the 1968 scenario available for download somewhere? I'd love to play that thing.

1988



Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA)/Senator Al Gore (D-TN) - 323 electoral votes and 60,319,192 (50.4%) popular votes
Vice President George H. W. Bush (R-TX)/Senator Dan Quayle (R-IN) - 215 electoral votes and 53,991,416 (45.1%) popular votes
Others (Paul, Fulani) - 5,455,061 (4.6%) popular votes

President-elect Kennedy pulled off a fairly easy win on election night after the election looked to be extremely close on election day, with the Senator ahead by just 0.3% in the polls, but still far behind Vice President Bush in projections for the electoral college.
