Replaying Bryan/Sewall 1896



447 EV, 224 to win
William Jennings Bryan (D-NE) / Arthur Sewall (D-ME) - 238 EV, 52.2%
William McKinley (R-OH) / Garret A. Hobart (R-NJ) - 209 EV, 45.5%
National Democrats - 0.9%
Prohibition - 1.3%

Got 8 more EV than last time.

Seems the viable way to win as the Great Commoner is not to be a commoner. How ironic.

Re-replaying Bryan/Sewall 1896


447 EV, 224 to win
William Jennings Bryan (D-NE) / Arthur Sewall (D-ME) - 230 EV, 52.3%
William McKinley (R-OH) / Garret A. Hobart (R-NJ) - 217 EV, 45.3%
National Democrats - 0.9%
Prohibition - 1.6%

Was sweating as Indiana turned Rep at almost the last minute. Swung Michigan by little over a thousand votes -- wasn't in my plan at all.

Seems, again, trying to hold the west and south while winning the election is out of the question. It's a pain even when you only focus on NY and the midwest.

2004
President Bush faces a tough primary challenge after the beginning of the Iraq War. His main primary opponent, Colin Powell, nearly defeated him in a close race for the nomination. Senator John McCain was a close third and others ran as well. Bush passed up McCain or Powell to be his running mate and chose the unpopular sitting Vice President, Dick Cheney once again.
General Wesley Clark emerged onto the field as a distant second behind Howard Dean after a qualified but uncharismatic John Kerry announced he would not run. Many others entered the field. Hillary Clinton formed an exploratory committee but decided to back Carol Moseley Braun's candidacy instead. Braun would eventually place third. Wesley narrowly defeated Dean in Iowa and came within points in New Hampshire. He won Nevada solidly along with South Carolina. This created momentum, leading to Dean withdrawing after the first Super Tuesday.
Clark debates Bush and emerges as a narrow victor. In the VP's debate, McCain smokes Cheney. Clark seems to massively defeat Bush in the second debate. Bush's attack on Clark backfires and he is the clear loser in the third debate.
Al Gore's Revenge
[X] General Wesley Clark (D-IL) / Senator John McCain (R-AZ) 48.7% PV 319 EVs
President George Bush (R-TX) / Vice President Dick Cheney (R-WY) 49.4% PV 219 EVs
Mr. Ralph Nader (I-CT) / Mr. Matt Gonzalez (I-CA) 1.9% PV

Both houses of Congress stay Republican. Colorado surprisingly goes 61.4% Republican. McCain's home state is narrowly lost by Clark (51-47). California was a surprisingly competitive state, tipping back and forth through the night. It was the deciding state. The vote shares in California were 48.4-46.7 (D+1.7). Delaware surprisingly goes Republican 53-45. Idaho is won by Clark (49.8-48.7). He wins the state by <8000 votes. The Republicans win Montana by 1.5% (less than 7000 votes).

Don't have a map, I didn't think to save one at the time.

I ran the 1912 scenario mostly hands-off as the weakest Republican, turned off Progressive and Democratic and gave Socialist a bunch of momentum. It was a Socialist landslide but the interesting part was Debs (Soc) won unanimously in many states winning thousands, tens of thousands and on occasion over 100K votes to 0 Republicans. In some states Debs got similar figures while Republicans got 1, 3, 6, 7, 10, etc. votes. Only a handful of states were in the 50s (% for Soc or Rep). Most others were landslides in the upper 70s or 80s for Debs. Strangely in North Carolina 1 Socialist voted, 0 Republicans. (Yes, one vote for all 12 electors, the whole state). South Carolina was the inverse with 1 Republican and 0 Socialists.

I ran the 2012 playing Romney and Obama. Romney and Obama both become presumptive nominees. Obama selects Biden as his running mate. Then Obama accepts an offer from Romney to become his running mate. Then I tried to tank Romney's campaign to get Johnson's % up. I've seen one major party nominee become the other's running mate and they are taken off the ballot but I think since I picked a running mate as Obama, the ticket didn't get wiped out. I imagine Biden campaigning alone after Obama fled the party.

Louisiana was 49.8-48.4-1.8 (Romney-Johnson-Obama). Missouri was 37.2-34.2-28.6 (Obama-Johnson-Romney).

Arkansas won by 1.5%
Indiana is won by 387 votes (won by .008%)
Montana is won by 0.2% (1,970 votes)
Utah is won by 0.4% (7,299 votes)
Libertarians exceeded 5%, and as a result will receive full ballot access in 2020 and federal fund matching.
Donald Trump exceeds Ross Perot's stunning independent performance in 1992, in percentage and by winning EVs (not to mention more than one state; 6 in fact)

Michelle Obama won in a contested convention against frontrunner Michael Bloomberg. Evan Bayh stood in second place, ahead of Obama, until the late May and June primaries. The huge Democratic field narrowed to Bloomberg-Bayh-Obama by April.
Asa Hutchinson was the dark horse for the Republican nomination. He overtook longtime frontrunner Mitt Romney in early May. In order to unify the base after a very divisive, long and crowded primary,
 Hutchinson chose Romney as his running mate.
Bernie Sanders decided not to contest the Democratic nomination. He instead ran for the Greens,
 who, beginning with Jill Stein, cleared the field for him.
Rand Paul, the frontrunner, was put over the top with Weld's delegates at the convention.
✓ Mrs. Michelle Obama (D-IL) / Fmr. Sen. Jim Webb (D-VA) 308 EVs 44.9%
Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R-AR) / Fmr. Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) 227 EVs 38.4%
Sen. Bernie Sanders (G-VT) / Ms. Winona LaDuke (G-CA) 3 EVs 9.5%
Sen. Rand Paul (L-KY) / Fmr. Gov. Bill Weld (L-MA) 0 EVs 7.1%


The closest state was South Carolina, it was R +0.9

Played through 2016 as Biden on hard with everyone on.



Blue = Biden
Yellow = Clinton
Green = Warren
Red = Sanders

On May 9th 2016, the game was "out of memory" and crashed. The autosave featured failed around the Iowa primary so I lost yet another game. The game platform is really a POS. I was marginally trailing in delegates (handful) and poised to win California by 8 points.

Georgia, Alabama, NH were all won by other candidates (Webb for NH).

Did the democratic primary with all candidates and played as biden
Warren won Nh and O'malley won Nevada
Biden is Red Clinton is blue and sanders is green
When everyone dropped out it became similar to the end of the 2016 republican primary where Kasich and Cruz split the anti Trump vote while Sanders split the anti Clinton vote in a lot of states
Clinton barely has enough delegates for a majority

United States presidential election, 2016


(✓) Businessman Donald Trump (R-NY) / Governor Mike Pence (R-IN): ≈71 million votes, 286 EV
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D-NY) / Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA):  ≈65 million votes, 252 EV

Played as Hillary Clinton and tried to replicate her RL strategy of running exclusively on character issues and highlighting Trump's lack of experience and integrity.  Decided early to go with an "Eastern Strategy" and put most early resources into FL, NC and PA.  I fell behind in NV pretty early, so I gave up on fighting for it - but Colorado and then New Mexico followed (Johnson pulled over 18% of the NM vote on election day).  I started with pretty consistent leads in the Midwest; WI was the first to go, followed by OH and WI - but I held on in MI until the last week, when Trump got a massive momentum swing in the state.  About 2 or 3 weeks until election day, Trump surged in the Northeast and I had to divert a lot of resources there - he started leading in states like NJ and CT, and RI and DE became competitive - even New York was "undecided" for a while.  The fact that I held most of these Northeast states feels like an accomplishment after how hard I worked to win those states back, and it was almost enough to pull it across the finish line in the end.  Despite losing the popular vote by some 6 million, I came surprisingly close in the electoral college - PA and NC were somewhat comfortable wins, and while VA and FL were very close they were big wins for the campaign.  Performance in the West and Midwest was abysmal, however, IL ended up being pretty close, and WI and MN weren't even competitive.  I got stomped in the West, with the narrowest of my losses there coming in CO, but Oregon was a complete surprise - I ended up losing it by less than 2,000 votes.

Presidential Election of 2004


Clark/Edwards 50.9% 62,929,091 Votes 318 Electoral Votes
Bush/Frist 48.2% 59,587,096 Votes 220 Electoral Votes
Nadar/Gonzalez 1.0% 1,217,279 0 Electoral Votes

I played as Clark and started in the primaries. I was able to get a pretty good lead in the primary after Iowa, though they didn't officially wrap up until the convention since Dean wouldn't drop out. The campaign was close throughout, with the final polls only having me up 1.7% and the Electoral Vote split 249 for me and 240 for Bush, with South Carolina, Ohio, and Washington state too close to call. On election night the biggest surprises were South Carolina and Arkansas, which was leaning Bush. I carried them by 6 and 7 points respectively. Overall super fun game, and my first win on the new President Infinity, though I have played President Forever quite a bit. I will say they could work on the wild swings, Iowa and New Hampshire I guess swung crazily to the Democrats because of our competitive primary, and never left, which they should address. Here's a county map too since I have far too much time on my hands.

2016 Democratic Primaries

Img


Bernie Sanders 51.0% 15,711,511 Votes 2441 Delegates
Hillary Clinton 41.3% 12,717,490 Votes 2080 Delegates
Martin O'Malley 7.7% 2,387,621 Votes 244 Delegates

The popular vote spread belies the closeness of the race throughout, as I didn't take the lead in the national polls until after the Acela primaries. There were a few times where I thought that Hillary had it, particularly after she took Nevada. I only took South Carolina by 7 over O'Malley, but that let me go into Super Tuesday with momentum. As you can see I severely under performed on the Great Plains compared to irl, but I made up for it in the South and Midwest. I thought the Democrats were going to have a contested convention until the June 6th primaries, when I took California with over 70% and broke past the delegate majority mark. I picked Klobuchar as my running mate. The Republican primary was a mess as usual and they had something like 11 rounds of voting at their convention with the final ticket being Cruz/Bachmann. The other tickets were Johnson/Ventura and Stein/Baraka. I'll post the general election map and summary once it wraps up.

2016 Presidential Election
Img
Bernie Sanders/Amy Klobuchar 52.1% 76,513,281 Votes 368 Electoral Votes
Ted Cruz/Michele Bachmann 44.3% 65,075,946 Votes 170 Electoral Votes
Gary Johnson/Jesse Ventura 2.5% 3,692,121 Votes 0 Electoral Votes
Jill Stein/Ajamu Baraka 1.0% 1,520,329 Votes 0 Electoral Votes
Much like the primaries this race was close right to the end when I pulled away. For the first few weeks of the general election, Cruz and I traded narrow leads back and forth, though by the last week I had a nearly four point lead in the polls. I had quite a bit of cash left at the end, so I was able to ad blitz most of the competitive states, plus the Upper Plains. The ad blitz was likely the main reason I over-performed the polls on Election Day. I won all the debates, and even nabbed a few typically Republican endorsements like the NRA which helped quite a bit. As a plus, I'm happy with the ascetically pleasing map.

Do you all know if there's a good 2020 scenario for President Forever 2008+Primaries? I haven't been willing to shell out for Infinity yet since they removed the demo.
