And all that led to this rather odd map:



Clark/Clinton (me)- 57%, 479 EV
Bush/Cheney- 36%, 59 EV
Nader/LaDuke- 4%, 0 EV
Badnarik/Campagna- 2%, 0 EV

Tooooooo lazy to do the rest...

NEED FOOD Tongue

I think all of this proves my comment above about Idaho. Tongue

If you a scroll back a page or two, I won Idaho as Bob Casey in the Rising Stars scenario

Idaho in 2004, I mean.  It's almost impossible to win as the Democrat (although I have done it a couple times).

Jesus Christ, I think this is a) the most unrealistic result I´ve ever had and b) the best result I´ve ever had running as a third party candidate.





Ross Perot (Independent)
Popular Vote: 51%
Electoral Vote: 449

William Clinton (Democratic)
Popular Vote: 27%
Electoral Vote: 80

George H.W. Bush (Republican)
Popular Vote: 18%
Electoral Vote: 9

Andre Marrou (Libertarian)
Popular Vote: 2%
Electoral Vote: 0


What happened: Well, in short, both Clinton and Bush were each hit by two major scandals in the week before the election and I spun them as long as I could. As a result, the news in the last seven days basically consisted only of those scandals. In addition, a few days before the election I started to run three very successful attack adds (two against Bush, one against Clinton).

Throughout the entire campaign Perot wasn´t in the lead in a single state, but in the last poll released before the election Perot suddenly took the lead almost everywhere. Wink

Bush/Quayle: 452 EVs, 46%

North Carolina: 53.2%

Clinton:
Louisiana: 54.4%

Worse states:

Clinton:
Utah: 11.2%

North Dakota: 14.5%
Idaho: 14.6%
Wyoming: 15.9%

Perot:
Mississippi: 1.2%
Alabama: 4.8%
Tennessee: 4.9%
Virginia: 5%
Arkansas: 5.7%

Closest states:
Georgia: Bush over Clinton by 0.3%, 8 355 votes
Hawaii: Bush over Clinton by 0.5%, 2 331 votes
Arkansas: Clinton over Bush by 0.6%, 6 881 votes

----------------------------------

I almost never got any good ads and ran out of money on the last day...but still won comfortably with Bush by focusing on my experience. I got hit by 4 scandals, I think it was, one power 9, one power 3 and two power 6. Clinton won every debate.

I did Gore vs. Keyes vs. Nader vs. Buchanan to see which hard core Republican states I could win:



If I weren't socked with a few scandals, I would have won South Dakota (lost by 2.7), Nebraska (lost by 5.0), Louisiana (lost by 1.1) Arkansas (lost by 0.7) and Utah (lost by 0.3)!

I'll add Keyes to teh 2004 scenario and see how that goes

Here we go:

Mark Warner/Dick Gephardt vs. Alan Keyes/Pat Toomey (2004)



I won the PV 64-35.  I won Utah, Idaho, Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Wyoming, Texas, Kansas, North Dakota, South Dakota and Alaska by over 10 points each, and yet lose Ohio (52.8-47.1).  Oh well, I did win Idaho (58.2-41.7) Wink

One of the oddest historical maps ever. Played as Byrd in the scenario A New Frontier - 1960. Nixon vs. Kennedy vs. Byrd vs. Decker.



Nixon: 47% PV 268 EVs
Kennedy: 40% PV 220 EVs
Byrd: 9% PV 49 EVs
Decker: 2% 0 EVs

Best State:

Nixon: Nevada 76.2% PV
Kennedy: Georgia 69.0% PV
Byrd: Mississippi 89.0%
Decker: North Carolina 12.8% PV

Worst State:

Nixon: Mississippi 4.9% PV
Kennedy: Mississippi 2.9% PV
Byrd: West Virginia 0.0% PV (376)
Decker: Montana 0.0% (0)

PBrunsel would be proud. The Prohibition Party got over 10% in about five states and came in third in Mississippi and possibly others as well.

Leonard Hobbes/Denny Hastert (R) 56%  473
John F. Kerry/John Edwards (D) 43%  65

Popular Vote Tallys: R-70,670,053; D-53,672,172

My campaign themes were center-left on gun control, center-left on military intervention and integrity. 

Early on, I just waited to build up 4 ads, which with 3 1/2 weeks to go I ran for only 2 days, and my two best ads for one more day.  After triumphing against Kerry in the first debate, I managed to turn more or less the entire country red, except for VT, NY, PA, DE, MD, NJ, WV, IL, HI and WA.  I focused on winning WA, IL, and PA in the next few weeks, while Kerry's campaign decided to hit up states like AL and KY.

With a day to go before the election, I had about $14 million in the kitty left, and Kerry had flipped IN and KY (?) into swing states.  I unleashed my 3 best ads, throwing money at every state I could, and burned $8 million in the first day added my 4th ad to the total, and definitely went over on election day (but who cares?).

I was upset when I lost NY 51-49, which prevented me from my first 500 game on PF ever.

Yes, getting your first 500 game is always a proud achievement. Smiley

I'm still attempting to get a perfect 538 game with Kerry.  The closest I've gotten so far is something like 522, losing only Wisconsin, South Dakota, and Alaska.

When you´ve learned to win ANY election with a landslide, this game becomes quite boring.


I played the 1912 election with Debs:

Debs
Popular Vote: 50%
Electoral Vote: 478

Roosevelt
Popular Vote: 17%
Electoral Vote: 29

Wilson
Popular Vote: 17%
Electoral Vote: 21

Taft
Popular Vote. 14%
Electoral Vote: 3

Uh, no... the Electoral College Calculator on this site has only three parties and I didn´t know a other way to make a map. But the single state that was won by Taft was Delaware if I recall correctly. Wink

How do you guys make maps with four candidates?

If the fourth party has only one state, just put that one state at like 90% third party or something and say what it's supposed to be.
