This is a result from my custom 2012 scenario. One of the closest national popular vote differences I've ever seen in this game, and there was about a 2% difference or less between Obama and Romney in about 10 states.

1960: I played as Kennedy. I won 340 - 169



I had a healthy lead for the last half if the game leading about 46%-40%-.8% Nixon ended up winning most the undecideds on election night and came close to sweeping the south, luckily I held on to the deep south. Nixon won big in the plains states and the mountain west.

The scenario is very flawed. If you have Campaigns Forever you can edit it, but the author needs to re-edit the scenario.

My running in 2008 as an Independent, even though my weighted positions were 3.0 to Obama's 2.8 - I seemed to do more damage to McCain early on, and eventually started to take voters from both sides... please note I gave myself a LOT of money.



Obama/Biden - 322EV - 39.4% (Best state (not DC) - MA, 63.4%/ Worst state - WY, 20.7%)
McCain/Palin - 216EV - 37.6% (Best state - AL, 55.4%/ Worst state - HI, 16%)
Polnut/Hagel - 0EV - 22.1% (Best state - CT/NH, 32.3% / Worst state (that I was on the ballot) - AL, 14%)

An interesting little scenario involving Obama, Romney, and Bloomberg. Bloomberg proves to be a strong 3rd party challenger, despite not winning any states.

I created a new 2004 scenario where Dean runs as Independent after losing in the primaries. Once I began to rise in the polls the Map became almost all blue for a while until Edwards imploded. I was slightly behind Bush until the west coast began reporting results where I finnaly overtook bush in the PV and EV but was still short of the 270. Then a last minute upset of Edwards in Oregon put me over the top.



Howard Dean/Matt Gonzalez (I/G): PV - 36.2%; EV 271
Bush/Cheney (R): PV - 33.6%; EV - 248
Edwards/Richardson (D): PV - 29%; EV - 19
Peroutka/??? (C): PV - 1.2%

Best result ever as an independent Smiley

Obama and McCain got flogged through most of the campaign, I sailed through with positive momentum, while I still ran ads in every state, I focused on 11 states where I was behind by less than 25% at the start of the 4th week.
- NH
- ME
- VT
- CT
- CO
- NM
- VA
- FL
- WI
- CA
- TX

....



This was a doozy, with the election not being called until 4:24am - when CA was called for Obama, which he won by roughly 30,000 votes.

Key state results
Texas -  McCain: 40.4% - Obama: 32.4% Polnut: 25.8%
Vermont - Polnut: 41.4% - Obama: 29.6% - McCain: 28.2%
Florida -  McCain: 36.4% - Polnut: 34.1% - Obama: 28%

Totals
Obama - 287 EV - 35.5%
McCain - 216 EV - 34.8%
Polnut -    35 EV - 28.4%

The only states I didn't get over 20%, were the states I wasn't on the ballot - MA, OK, NC, DC, AZ, HI and IN

I got over 30% in
FL, WI, NH, ME, CO, VT, NV, NM, VA, CT

...and over 40% in
VT, WI

As part of my bizarre matchups spree:

A fun space-barred election between Al Gore and Fred Thompson (2008).

Agreed, very hard to believe.

Also, I'm not sure what Tennessee, NC, and Missouri are doing going Dem while Virginia is deep red. Also, given that Gore couldn't carry his homestate in 2000, I doubt he could carry it in 2008 when the Republican opponent is ALSO a Tennessean.

2008:




Mitt Romney/Joseph Lieberman - 55.9%, 374 EV's

Hillary Clinton/Mark Warner - 44.1%, 164 EV's

Some interesting percentages, to say the least. It's almost realistic, minus percentages in the South.

Well, I got bonuses in both states since that's where the candidates were from. I also advertised and campaigned in both states, which was a help. I'm sure both MA and CT would have been closer in RL if McCain had done likewise, especially if Lieberman was his VP.
