Well, given things I ran four dems against Huckabee/Sanford (including myself) these were the results. The VP for each was Bayh.

Huckabee v Clinton



334 - 204

Huckabee v Edwards



348 - 190

Huckabee v Obama



313 - 225

Huckabee v Polnut



398 - 140

Funnily, what is odd is that I feel I experience more realistic results with the 08 edition. With 04 I end up winning Kansas and Mississippi all the time by 20-40% margins, but lose NJ or CA by 10%.

The 3rd parties never get more than 5% combined when I play.

Are you serious? In the one game I have played (see above), they got 16.4% combined. It was like the Perot factor all over again.

Yeah.

The only time I've EVER had a third party get over 7% is when I play as a Unity candidate, I usually get between 25 - 29%, and win a few states. But a Badnarik or Peroutka would rarely get above 3%.

OK, I ran as my trusty billionaire NYker.

This was the last set of polls before election night.

Obama/Bayh - 35.2% 217 EV
Giuliani/Owens - 36.8% 230 EV
Polnut/Hagel (Unity) - 18.5% 0 EV
Undecided - 9.5% - 91 EV

Final result.

Well... Sorry in advance. I caused some problems, lol.



Obama/Bayh - 249 EV 43,146,198 - 34.9%
Giuliani/Owens - 289 EV 47,241,985 - 38.2%
Polnut/Hagel - 1 EV 33,360,118 - 27%

Some interesting states.
I beat Obama in (among others) TX, OK, MT, The Dakotas, AK
I beat Giuliani in NY, RI and DC

I end up beating Romney most regularly and most brutally.

This was the map of my biggest victory.



Romney/Hagel - 52 EV - 41.9%
Polnut/Warner - 486 EV - 58.1%

I tried as Romney once - I didn't spend a cent on advertising - and I didn't leave UT

I still won 130 EV and 42% of the vote.

I decided to see how I'd go against McCain/Huckabee.

I chose Bayh to be my VP nominee.

It was close all the way through. McCain won the first debate, we tied the second and I "triumphed" in the third.  He hit me on experience, I hit him on integrity.

This was the map on October 15



McCain - 45.3%
Polnut - 43.6%
Badnarik - 2.3%


Luckily I found a massive integrity scandal at the same time his attack ad backfired, and he went backwards. This was the result.



McCain - 169 - 44.7%
Polnut - 369 -  53.1%
Badnarik - 0 -    2.2%

That's funny, I always win ME.

I think I've lost it as the Dem... maybe twice - and both of those were landslides.

As a Dem I usually win it with 52-56%.

OK, I ran as my NY based billionaire independent.

I focused on a few states ME, IL, NY, CT, MO, MT, CA, OR, TX and SD

I really made things messy.



Obama/Easley - 255 EV - 35.5%

McCain/Huckabee - 247 EV - 35.9%

Polnut/Hagel - 36 EV - 28.6%

Obama is elected by the house.

States of interest

IL - I 40 D 38 R 22 - yes I took IL from Obama.
ME - I 36 R 32 D 32
MO - I 34 R 34 D 32

I ran as myself in the 2008 Democratic primary.

I started from 0% - and crawled my way up - eventually coming third in Iowa and winning NH, MI (which didn't count). After winning PA, TX, OH and VT - Edwards and Obama endorsed me - pushing me over the top. Clinton stayed in until the end (and thumped me in IN, WV, KY, OR, SD and MT)- but I offered her VP.

The reps threw up... get this Paul/Romney.

I jumped out to an early lead - 44-40%

I was opening up some interesting states, and as 'integirty' became the key election issue - I pushed it harder and harder.

Going into election night I led 52-41% - but I was having some serious problems in states I really shouldn't have.

These were the results -



Yes I kid you not - I lost NH, FL and IA - but won OK, ID and LA - as well as GA, NC and TN.

Polnut/Clinton - 415EV 70,952,187 - 57.7%
Paul/Romney - 123EV 52,095,825 - 42.3%

Top 3 best results
P/C
VT- 75.7%
NY-75.2%
MA-72.3%

P/R
UT - 58.6%
WY - 57.9%
AL - 57.3%

13 states had margins of 4% or less.

The closest state you may ask?

Washington (for f**k's sake) which I won by 616 votes.

The Democratic Primary - well it was interesting - firstly Biden won Iowa and Dodd won NH.

But they didn't last long. While I got a close - I didn't win anything until ST, but when it came down to me v Clinton v Obama  I started to surge.

Ironically what did me in.... Obama endorsed Clinton.



Delegates
Clinton - 2221
Me - 1615

I became her running-mate.

Well the GE was.... interesting. We clobbered Giuliani on his experience.

I definited closed in on him but we didn't quite expect this - I think my 50-state leadership ad 3 days out made a BIG difference.



Clinton/Polnut - 534 EV 74,310,066 - 58.5%
Giuliani/Owens - 4EV 52,644,232 - 41.5%

....wow.

This was ODD... something trigged a massive turnout.

Tickets - Polnut/Obama - McCain/Palin



Polnut/Obama - 317 EV 86,340,582 - 54.7%
McCain/Palin - 221 EV 69,786,535 - 44.2%
Barr/??? - 870,211 - 0.6%
Baldwin/Who cares - 942,426 - 0.6%

Total number of vote - 157,969,756 votes.... good lord.

Never mind the fact that I lost my home state - PA, as well as OR, NH and OH.... but won GA, AL, SC, MT and NC....as well as taking McCain's home state by 10%

Seriously, the new PE is really pissin me off. I've ran several scenarios, and the democrats win everytime. I actually had a campaign with Mike Huckabee running against Dennis Kucinich (I played as Dennis), and Kucinich won with nearly 6 percent, and landslided in the electoral.

Nope I just lost as Hillary against Romney.

Not by much and I closed something scary in the last 2 weeks - but still lost.

Democratic Primary
Red = Me
Blue = Clinton
Green = Obama

Very closely run thing - I got Obama to endorse me 2 weeks before the convention, and I won by 25 delegates.


General...close in the early days, but I stayed positive and....



Polnut/Bayh - 435EV 56.4%
Romney/Jindal - 103EV  41.6%
Paul - 1.4%

Best state (not DC) - Vermont 73.2%
Worst state - Utah 34.5%
Closest state - Texas by 359 votes... damn it!!!

The light coloured states were the white undecideds before the election...

This one was just plain screwy.

Ran as 'me' and clinched the nomination just before the West Virginia primary in May. Obama remained in the race, and I even offered him the VP spot 3 times, but refused it.

After the convention my numbers went through the floor due to angry Obama supporters it seems, at one point, this was the map...





Polnut/Clinton - 130 - 29% (Democrat was 45% before convention)
Romney/McCain - 372 - 44% (eventually made it as high at 49%)
Toss Up - 36


I pushed him hard, I absolutely drowned the airwaves, thankfully my heavy fundraising efforts worked... but something very odd must have happened in the electorate...

as this was the map... I lost NH and MN, but won AL and TN? Also the closest state...  WV and LA, by around 5,000 votes. Even TX was decided by less than 1%




But think this was my best comeback

Polnut/Clinton - 327EV - 54.2%

Romney/McCain - 211 - 45.8%

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%)

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

Went through primaries, eventually Clinton endorsed me and put me over the top, Obama refused to drop out or accept the VP slot until July, even though I wrapped up the nomination after the West Virgina primary.

So it was McCain/Pawlenty vs Polnut/Obama....


McCain really couldn't catch a break...





There were about 5 states that were decided by less than 1% - I think the last minute nation-wide network TV ad I did on my leadership pushed them over... all except, AZ, which McCain held onto by less than 500 votes.

Polnut/Obama - 450 EV - 59.8%
McCain/Pawlenty - 88 EV - 40.2%

Best state (outside of DC): CT 80.2-19.8% (LOL!!!)

Worst state: UT 40.5-59.5%

An awkward one... during set up, I forgot to not close the Independent.... which is me also.

So the contest was

D: Polnut/Richardson
R: McCain/Palin
L: Barr/Eh... I don't care
I: Polnut/Hagel

So end result....



Polnut/Richardson - 448 EV - 50.3%
McCain/Palin - 90 EV - 37.8%
"Libertarians" - 0 EV - 0.5%
Polnut/Hagel - 0 EV - 11.4%

2012

Obama/Biden - 462 EV - 53.2%
Romney/Rice - 76 EV - 38.1%
Paul/Crackpot - 0 EV - 8.7%

While Paul didn't crack 9% nationally, he did well enough in GA, AZ, MT, KY, SC, LA and TX that he certainly cost Romney those states.

FYI

CT: Obama: 56 Romney: 42
NJ: Obama 54 Romney: 42
GA: Obama: 47.5 Romney 47.4
AZ: Obama 46.2 Romney 46.0
TX: Obama 45.1 Romney 44.9
