Not too absurd. Take away Texas and NC and that looks reasonable.

I played Edwards/Obama against Giuliani/Romney on hard without primaries and did pretty well:

Edwards 311 - Giuliani 227

Edwards: 58,813,690 (50.1%)
Giuliani:   58,546,733 (49.9%)

2008 - Obama/Richardson vs. Giuliani/Brownback (Hard)

You want polarization?  I'll give you polarization!!



Obama/Richardson (D): 456 EVs, 58.9% PV
Giuliani/Brownback (R): 82 EVs, 41.1% PV

This was one of the most boring election nights in PF+P that I've ever had because, I kid you not, every single state save for North Dakota and Idaho was called within three minutes of their polls closing.  The closest state was Idaho at 53.1% to 46.9%.  The ultimate bellwether state was Michigan, at bang-on 58.9% to 41.1%.

I think the folks at 80soft still have, er, a few kinks to work out...

Yeah, especially how when you play primaries and win and get to the general election a few of the states are on crack. I also played a general election game recently where with a couple weeks left the whole country went crazy.

I've been thinking a recount button if the result was within 0.5% would be fun.


My most recent.


Giuliani/Sanford
Clinton/Richardson



Clinton/Richardson - 52.7% 268 EV
Giuliani/Sanford - 47.3% 270 EV

I was able to gut Giuliani in the south - GA and TN came within 3% NC, VA, AR and TX were within 7%. Giuliani won MN, IA and WI by 0.2%, 0.6% and 0.75 respectively.

so as Gore I won the popular vote in 2008 by about 1.5% but came short of 270 in the electoral college by 4 votes. Closest state: Michigan, going to my opponent Giuliani by a total of 127 votes (I was a little dissapointed at that result but I guess it just might be destiny for Gore)

Well, this is certainly one of the rare occasions were D.C. and Utah were won by the same candidate. Cheesy

Utah seems to always be the state most favorable to third-party candidates.  I've never quite understood why.

Ok just played as Hillary in a nasty primary battle w Clark and Edwards.

I asked Clark to be my running-mate, but Edwards refused to withdraw from the race. Every week he stayed in (he had 600 delegates to my 2500) it weakened me at a national level. So by the time it was a

Clinton/Clark - Romney/Sanford race it looked like this in the first day of the general election.



Clinton - 36.3% - 37 EV
Romney - 52.3% - 450 EV
Undecided - 11.4% - 51 EV

After losing all the debates, I managed to find Romney's weakspot Homeland Security. I didn't win, but I was proud of the ground I made up.



Clinton - 47.1% - 214 EV
Romney - 52.9% - 324

Played as Edwards. After facing a hard three-way primary of Edwards vs. Clinton vs. Biden I came out with the most delegates but about 100 or so short of securing the nomination so I managed to get Biden to endorse me and proceeded along to the general election. It was Edwards vs. Giuliani vs. Badnarik vs. Peroutka and until about the last three weeks it was tied, then I managed to pull away:

Image Link

Popular Vote:
Edwards: 50.6 %
Guiliani: 40.5 %
Badnarik: 5.2%
Peroutka: 3.8%

I was suprised at how well the third parties did, together they polled nearly 10% (though Edwards was still able to get a 10% winning margin along with a majority of the vote)

Oh, the suprises of the night:
Utah was only won by .3% of the vote
Hawaii went Republican in a Dem landslide (dittto for Iowa, Missouri, West Virginia and New Hampshire)

I just played my custom made 2008 Presidential Election scenario. It was quite an interesting election. Well here's the results.



The tickets were:

Governor Michael Shandling (Minnesota)-Senator Dick Ford (Arkansas) 39% (49,258,177) 274 EV

Senator Gary Lewis (Tennessee)-Senator Homer Baxter (Arizona) 38% (47,661,812) 244 EV

President of Bobrick Enterprises Nathan Bobrick(Washington)-Former Governor Barbara Mitchell (New Jersey) 22% (27,715,416) 21 EV

I played as Nathan Bobrick. I didn't run any of my commericals until the final 5 days of the election. My poll numbers went from 10% to 22% in the space of 5 days.

* The Grey on the map represents the Bobrick-Mitchell tickets EV's.

Giuliani/Hagel - 48.2% - 225 EV
Libertarian - 2.1%
Constitution - 1.2%

I usually don't post my results much anymore, but the "Kerry vs. GOP" scenario is one that is very pro-Kerry, but as Governor Arnold Schwarzennger I won a landslide so rediculous that it has to be shown:



Arnold Schwarzenneger/Mike Huckabee (R): 523 Electoral Votes, 60% (75,387,673) of the poular vote

John Kerry/John Edwards (D): 17 Electoral Votes, 39% (49,050,892) of the popular vote

Here is the result from Washington, D.C.:

Kerry (D): 58.7% (148,252)
Arnold (R): 41.2% (104,129)

I am so pissed off right now! I was just playing as General Wes Clark against President George W. Bush in the defult 2004 Presidential scenario in p4e. Well have a look for yourself how I came back from the dead and won the popular vote against President Bush.

Two weeks to go



2 weeks out election polls:
Bush: 49%
Clark: 40%
UND: 7%

One day to go



P.S. I forgot to include Minnesota in the Clark collumn.

One day out election polls:
Bush: 45% (-4)
Clark: 49% (+8)
UND: 2% (-4)

Election Night Predictions



Bush/Cheney= 246 EV (Including Maryland)
Clark/Dean= 292 EV (Including New Hampshire)

Final Election Results



Well there you go. I won the popular vote by 5 percent, but lost the presidency by 8 Electoral Votes. The joy of American democracy.

Popular Vote Details:
Bush/Cheney: 47% (59,162,150) 273 E.V.
Clark/Dean: 52% (65,013,081) 265 E.V

2004 - Dean/Feingold (the liberal stallion! - me) vs. Bush/Cheney (Hard)

Pre-election key

Grey - Tossup
>30% - Edge
>50% - Ahead
>70% - Solid
>90% - _____ Country

With four weeks to go, the race seemed to be right where Bush wanted it to be.  He was over the magic number of electoral votes, even without the tossup states.



Bush/Cheney (R)Sad 277 EVs
Dean/Feingold (D)Sad 178 EVs
Tossup: 83 EVs

However, at two weeks to go, after winning every debate and running two short nationwide ad blitzes, the tide was... kind of turning a bit.



Dean/Feingold (D)Sad 430 EVs
Bush/Cheney (R)Sad 73 EVs
Tossup: 35 EVs

With one day to go, Bush had made up some lost ground, but lost ground elsewhere, and it didn't look like it would be nearly enough.



Dean/Feingold (D)Sad 391 EVs
Bush/Cheney (R)Sad 55 EVs
Tossup: 92 EVs

Election night came.  The election was called for Dean at 9:03 PM, before any of the west coast's polls even had a chance to report.

To add insult to injury, Texas was then called for Dean three minutes later at 9:06 PM.

Bush retired to Crawford in shame and was never seen in the public spotlight again.



Dean/Feingold (D)Sad 447 EVs, 62.9% PV
Bush/Cheney (R)Sad 91 EVs, 37.1% PV

Best states

Dean: Rhode Island - Dean wins over Bush 77.1% - 22.9%.
Bush: Utah - Bush wins over Dean 78.6% - 21.4%.

Closest state

Idaho - Dean wins over Bush 59.0% - 41.0% (yes, this seriously was the closest result there was... I seem to be a very polarizing figure in PF+P Smiley).
