Tom Delay/Mitt Romney vs Hillary Clinton/Barak Obama - 2008

Well, the map started out looking something like this:



Clinton: 49%

Delay: 39%

On election day



Clinton: PV 46% EV 225

Delay: PV 52% EV 313

I must say, I'm pretty proud of this one.

Pennsylvania (60.5%) (it's funny, I always do extremely well in Pennsylvania, regardless of time and candidate Huh)


Sounds like me with Ohio.  I usually poll about 57-63 there, regardless of who I am running as.
I always win Iowa.

Shocked Wow that is quite impressive.

I ran one negative ad against Hillary attacking her on abortion and got her with one power 3 scandal. She hit me with two power nine scandals. I ran a possitive campaign for the rest of the time and won all of the debates and endorsments.

P.S.  This election was the triumph of a very specifically targeted state-by-state strategy.  I measured which issues would win it for me on a state-to-state basis and ran a highly specialized campaign that moved in waves, from one grouping of states to the next.  Very strategy driven.

Breckenridge vs Douglas

I, of course, was Breckenridge. Smiley I had Massachusetts tied for almost the entire election the last week I took the lead but I lost it in the end. A week out I was over 27 points behind in California. I broke a scandal on Douglas and moved within 5 points in CA. I still couldn't pull it off and I won in a squeeker.

Breckenridge - 153
Douglas         - 150

Breckenridge started out with a slight edge, but in what was quite possibly the most negative election in the history of the United States, Breckenridge got clobbered by Douglas with a momentum of -331 on the last day.  Douglas ran as many attack ads as he possibly could and filled the pages of the newspapers with scandals on Breckenridge on the last week of the campaign.  The South crumbled like a cookie before Breckenridge's eyes, leaving him with only 4 states worth 22 electoral votes in his column.

Best states - Douglas:

New Jersey:

Douglas: 87.9%
Breckenridge: 12.0%

Michigan:

Douglas: 86.1%
Breckenridge: 13.8%

New York:

Douglas: 85.1%
Breckenridge: 14.8%

Best states - Breckenridge:

South Carolina:

Breckenridge: 58.6%
Douglas: 41.3%

Texas:

Breckenridge: 55.7%
Douglas: 44.2%

Florida:

Breckenridge: 52.3%
Douglas: 47.6%

Closest states:

1. Mississippi (Breckenridge wins, 50.0%-50.0% - 17 votes!)
2. Arkansas (Douglas wins, 50.2%-49.7%)
3. Virginia (Douglas wins, 51.2%-48.7%)

1928 - Smith vs. Hoover:



Smith - 531 EVs - 68% PV
Hoover - 0 EVs - 23% PV
Thomas - 0 EVs - 6% PV
Foster - 0 EVs - 2% PV

The election started off much in Hoover's favor, with him holding over 400 EVs, but a barrage of ads halfway through the campaign blasted Hoover's lead out of the water, and although Hoover tried to get back at Smith at the end through attack ads in retaliation and through two scandals released in the last week, Smith had a scandal of his own to release as well as another week-long barrage of ads, dooming Hoover to a complete knock-out on Election Day.  Thomas produced a complete surprise showing in Alabama, receiving 24.8% of the vote, surprising everyone.

Best states - Smith:

South Carolina:

Smith: 96.7%
Hoover: 2.2%

Mississippi:

Smith: 91.8%
Hoover: 7.9%

Louisiana:

Smith: 90.2%
Hoover: 8.5%

Best states - Hoover:

Arizona:

Smith: 52.6%
Hoover: 36.8%

Florida:

Smith: 52.7%
Hoover: 35.3%

Kansas:

Smith: 69.6%
Hoover: 28.2%

---

So, uh, I think my new P4E strategy worked. Smiley

Having thoroughly clobbered Hoover, I decided to try out one of the hardest elections to win ever...

1984 - Mondale vs. Reagan



Mondale - 456 EVs - 65% PV
Reagan - 82 EVs - 34% PV

At the beginning of the election, Mondale was ahead in only one single state: his own state of Minnesota.  For the first half of the election, it looked like Mondale would lose in a landslide, but Mondale knew what he was doing.  Near the midway point, Mondale unleashed a quick 2-day blitz of ads - one attack ad on Reagan, one promoting himself - in 25 states, and while it was short, it put a noticeable dent in Reagan's lead, flipping many close states to Mondale.  With two weeks to go, Mondale leaked a huge scandal on Reagan.  With one and a half weeks to go, Mondale leaked another.  With five days to go, Mondale leaked a third.  For the last three days, Mondale broadcast four ads - two attacking Reagan, two promoting himself - again in 25 states, running out of money at just the right time: on election day.

Reagan never had a chance.

An odd thing to note is that, with the exception of Tennessee, Reagan received over 60% of the vote in all of the states that he did manage to win.

Best states - Mondale:

Minnesota:

Mondale: 80.1%
Reagan: 19.8%

New York:

Mondale: 79.8%
Reagan: 20.1%

Rhode Island:

Mondale: 77.7%
Reagan: 22.2%


Best states - Reagan:

Colorado:

Reagan: 69.2%
Mondale: 30.7%

Mississippi:

Reagan: 68.1%
Mondale: 31.8%

South Dakota:

Reagan: 66.6%
Mondale: 33.3%

Yes, winning almost every state with over 70% of the vote can do that.

This one is for States. Smiley  I decided to try my hand as Wallace in 1968.

Humphrey vs. Nixon vs. Wallace - 1968



Wallace - 226 EVs - 33% PV
Nixon - 173 EVs - 35% PV
Humphrey - 140 EVs - 29% PV

Same deal as before.  Since we had three people, I decided to make full state-by-state maps instead of just doing the "best state" thing.

Hubert Humphrey:



Richard Nixon:



George Wallace:



Congress elected Humphrey as president.

And no, I don't know why Oregon voted for Wallace.
