Kerry (me) vs. Bush vs. Nader vs. Badnarik:



Kerry: 522 EVs (51% PV)
Bush: 16 EVs (30% PV)
Nader: 0 EVs (6% PV)
Badnarik: 0 EVs (11% PV)

Best states:

Kerry: Massachusetts (71.6%)
Bush: South Dakota (44.8%)
Nader: Connecticut (18.0%)
Badnarik: California (32.9%)

Worst states:

Kerry: Washington (34.7%) (yes, his worst state was one he won)
Bush: Rhode Island (21.7%)
Nader: Tennessee (2.6%)
Badnarik: West Virginia (0.0% - 188 votes)

Closest states:

1. Wisconsin (Bush wins over Kerry, 40.6-39.5)
2. South Dakota (Bush wins over Kerry, 44.8-43.7)
3. California (Kerry wins over Badnarik, 35.9-32.9)

The massive Badnarik vote was mainly because we both got hit with pretty bad scandals and for quite a while we both had massive negative momentum - I just had less negative momentum than Bush did.  Badnarik was actually ahead in California for a moment, although my massive barrage of ads at the end won it back.

Not as proud as how he would be with what I just got:

Taft vs. Wilson vs. Roosevelt vs. Debs (me):



Wilson: 176 EVs (25% PV)
Roosevelt: 152 EVs (25% PV)
Taft: 146 EVs (26% PV)
Debs: 57 EVs (23% PV)

Best states:

Wilson: Arkansas (44.5%)
Roosevelt: Washington (40.2%)
Taft: Utah (56.6%)
Debs: South Dakota (39.8%)

Worst states:

Wilson: Montana (8.9%)
Roosevelt: Utah (4.8%)
Taft: Texas (6.9%)
Debs: Colorado (7.9%)

Closest states:

1. Oregon (Taft wins over Roosevelt, 31.0-30.8 )
2. Wisconsin (Taft wins over Wilson, 31.2-30.9)
3. Indiana (Wilson wins over Taft, 33.0-32.4)

I basically did absolutely nothing the entire time except for making ads and fundraising to put out as many ads as possible.  I also was successful in unearthing power 9 scandals on both Wilson and Roosevelt, who were for the longest time by far the frontrunners.  Taft picked up some of the slack, and I picked up the rest, successfully winning 4 states for Debs and nearly winning him the popular vote.

Out of curiosity, how do you guys get such massive landslides where you get 60+% of the popular vote?  I've done everything I can think of and have never gotten out of the fifties.

I'm disappointed every time I get below 55%...I post every time I play, so my results here aren't the best of the best. If you want to win big you need to produce a lot of negative momentum for your opponent. Hold attack-speeches - they almost always make the papers (more frequently than the positive ones) and can have a good effect early on on your opponent's momentum. Never touch an issue if it isn't at least on medium, preferably on high or very high.

I use leadership ads in the last seven days. Usually four of them running in every state for a week.

How do you afford running four ads in every state for a week?  The money I have in the 2004 scenario only lasts three days.

All I do during the campaign is fundraise and win the endorsement money. Running the ads is enough to gain enormous momentum.

Actually, I found my problem: I was playing with two other people.  Once I made it only me and Bush, I won with 60% of the vote. Tongue

Obviously, my strategy didn't work:



P.G. Talbott (R): 229, 49%
John Kerry (D): 309, 50%

The PV was actually really close...I was ahead until Kerry won Washington, actually...

Overall, the campaign didn't do so well...bounced back in the last few days (from down 6 in the polls), taking states like Louisiana, Missouri, Hawaii...but it was just too late.

States decided within 5:

Florida: 51.2-48.7
Pennsylvania: 51.2-48.7
New York: 52.3-47.6

Flip those three states, and I win.


Not my best day.

Take 2:

Was down by nine points a week before the election.  Mississippi was a swing state.  Wyoming was looking shaky.  Damned Power 6 scandal just sat there for a couple weeks and wouldn't go away.  And then came the ad blitz.

And here was the final result:



P.G. Talbott (R-NY): 280, 51%
John Kerry (D-MA): 258, 48%

My unexpected win in VA handed me the election.

Closest states:
Maryland: 50.5-49.4 (Kerry camped out here the last couple days)
Rhode Island: 50.5-49.4
California: 50.8-49.1 (I camped out here the last couple days)
Hawaii: 51.5-48.4
Virginia: 51.9-48.0

My best record as Kerry (who I did not support, for the record).



I spent a whole lot of time fundraising, got over $100,000,000 near the end.  I camped out in Texas for a while, and had Edwards go all over.

I made a last minute run at Utah, and got it so close - 50.0% to 49.9%.

Anyways

Electoral Vote
Kerry - 518
Bush - 20

Popular Vote
Kerry - 65%
Bush - 34%
