2004 - Kerry/Vilsack vs. Bush/Cheney vs. Nader/Camejo (me) (Easy)

With one day to go before the election, Nader seemed like he wouldn't even make a dent in the election one bit.



Bush/Cheney (R)Sad 309 EVs
Kerry/Vilsack (D)Sad 159 EVs
Nader/Camejo (I)Sad 0 EVs
Tossup: 70 EVs

BUT THEN NADER RAN ADS!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Nader/Camejo (I)Sad 217 EVs, 19.7% PV (!)
Kerry/Vilsack (D)Sad 181 EVs, 42.9% PV
Bush/Cheney (R)Sad 140 EVs, 37.4% PV

Congress, being the fascist Constitution-haters they are, elected Bush, despite the fact that he came in last and that they aren't allowed to do that.

Celebrity Challenge 2004 -- Britney Spears/Freddie Prinze Junior (R) vs. Danny Glover/Michael Moore (D) (Me)

This one was a Classic. As per usual when I play the original President Forever, I don't run my commericals until the final two weeks of the campaign. With two weeks to go, the Democratic ticket of Danny Glover (Leathol Weapon Series) and Michael Moore (Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11) seemed to be going down the track of Mondale/Ferraro '84. That's until I created havock for the Spears campaign when I released 5 commericals attacking here integrity.

As the campaign went into it's final phase, the major battleground states (California, Arizona, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Maine, Nevada and New Mexico) were all neck and neck. But by election night it was a narrow win for..........

Img
Danny Glover has been elected 44th President of the United States!!!!!



The major details

Danny Glover/Michael Moore (D): 51% (64,660,493) 292 EV's
Britney Spears/Freddie Prinze Junior (R): 48% (59,745,153) 246 EV's

Boy that was GOOD!

Was every ad attacking integrity?  Because if so, all but one of those ads were actually completely useless - you can't "double up" on a single issue; the impact of multiple ads on the same topic is simply that of the ad with the highest power.

There's also the issue that you can only capitalize on an opponent's negative momentum if you yourself have positive momentum, thereby stealing the voters that are shaved off by the other guy's freefall.  If both of you are in the negative, the impact is nowhere near as strong.

Whenever I make ads, I always make them half on my positives, and half on the other guy's negatives, and always make each ad on a different subject to maximize the benefit reaped from them.

Just a little friendly advice on the inner mechanics of the game. Smiley

However, I did make about 2 commericals infavor of Danny Glover on Leadership and Integrity. If you want to know I why I attacked Britney on her integrity, that's because of her recent fall-outs, such as her going in and out of rehab, dropping her baby, marrying K-FedX and yada-yada-yada.

But usually, when I'm playing properly, I usually start off with my views on the issues. For instance, when I was playing as Governor Bill Richardson against former Massachussets Governor Mitt Romney, I heavily focused the campaign on Richardson's energy plans. Modified my position on the Iraq War and then with 2 weeks to go, I pounded Romney on Iraq. But it was no use, I lost the presidency by losing Ohio and Arizona, but I won the popular vote by some 1.5 percent.

Thanks for the advice anyway SoFA Gabu.

Oh, I thought you meant you were running the maximum number of ads simultaneously and that they were all "Integrity / Attacking Spears".  If you were combining them with positive ads about yourself, then that's good, in that case.

This game seems to have a serious problem in making every single state go for one candidate by over 60%.

So... Started out running as Gore, won the ALL of the first primaries (normally then all of the others would go in the same way), by the time that the convention came Gore was short about 60 delegates of securing the nomination, Clinton had about 200 less than Gore and Biden had the rest, somehow ALL of Biden's delegates but about 1 or 2 went to Clinton and she won. I then continued the election with Clinton and almost the whole time was in the lead, especially towards the end. The Republican nominee was Gingrich (who too had fewer delegates than another nominee going into the convention).
Img


Electoral vote:
Clinton: 417
Gingrich: 121

Popular Vote:
Clinton: 64,211,929
Gingrich: 47,244,698
Badnarik: 3,279,313
Pertouka: 3,731,078

Closest state: Texas with a Clinton win of 1.6%

The odd thing with the end election results was that the Pacific states were all above 60% for Clinton...

I ran as General Douglas MacArthur in "The Disaster at D-Day" 1944 Scenario. President Roosevelt, suffering from a heart attack due to the stress of the failed invasion, is forced from the Democratic Ticket so he can not seek a third term. At a decisive 1944 Democratic Convnetion, Vice-President Wallace wins the Democratic nod. MacArthur selects Governor Earl Warren of California as his number two man while Wallace selects Senator Claude Pepper of Florida for Veep.

The results after a demoralized Democratic Campaign (including a power 22 scandal on Wallace):



Douglas MacArthur/Earl Warren (R): 489 Electoral Votes, 69% (41,483,011) of the popular vote

Henry Wallace/Claude "Red" Pepper (D): 42 Electoral Votes, 30% (18,183,256) of the popular vote

A second Iowan down in flames in only 12-years. Sad

Wouldn't that be his fourth term?

Played as Gore in primaries, lost to Clinton by 8 delegates (Only reason being that the week before the convention Biden endorsed Clinton). So then played as Clinton and was basically tied until an ad blitz on the last week.

Guiliani: 41%
Clinton: 51%
Badnarik:4%
Pertouka: 4%

Basically it was a Clinton landslide, which suprised me.

I'm surprised Buchanan didn't win more states with that popular vote result.

Perot's Revenge- 2004!



Ross Perot/Tom Golisano (Reform): 312 Electoral Votes; 35% (44,232,207) of the popular vote

John Kerry/John Edwards (D): 168 Electoral Votes; 32% (40,340,930) of the popular vote

George W. Bush/Richard Cheney (R): 58 Electoral Votes, 32% (39,981,087) of the popular vote

Nearly every state was decided by less than 5,000 votes. Washington was decided by 3 votes! However, H. Ross Perot is in the White House, now the "sucking" of NAFTA can end! Also, Air Force One is going to be sold and the State of the Union will be given with pie charts.

I let myself loose.

I had a very tight primary campaign, where I managed to wrestle the nomination from Clinton after making a deal with Edwards the week before the convention.

I placed myself as the Governor of Pennsylvania, and selected Mark Warner as my running mate. The Reps selected Gingrich/Sanford.

It was a tightish race to begin with, but I pushed hard on his integrity and won all three debates.

On election night this was the result.



Polnut/Warner - 379 EV - 70,678,910 - 55.6%
Gingrich/Sanford - 159 - 56,439,225 - 44.4%

- Yes I did get 70% in CA, 70.8% in fact.

Today I just played as New York Mayor, Michael Bloomberg in his independent candidacy in 2008.

The Democratic ticket was Senator Christopher Dodd and former Governor Mark Warner.

The Republican ticket was former Governor Mitt Romeny and Senator Chuck Hagel.

The election was quite close between Dodd and Romney for the first four weeks, until Romney launched a massive attack add campaign, against Dodd in key sign states of Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois, Pennsylvania, Washington, Oregon and New Hampshire.

In the end the election turned out like this:

Img


Romney/Hagel 50,646,055 369 EV 49.7%
Dodd/Warner 43,626,722 169 EV 42.8%
Bloomberg/Zinni 7,694,373 0 EV 7.5%

Obama/Richardson 52.9%
Romney/Allen 47.1%

Electoral college landslidee because I won the southern and western states by small margins.  This election would basically realign the country, driving the black vote and latino vote through the roof to put the south and west in play.

And the best part is, I was about to concede the primaries right after Super Tuesday, which did not going well at all, to Hillary and offer my endorsement if she took me as VP.  Then Edwards drops out and endorses me, and I get the boost I needed to keep going.  The contest came down to the final primary, which I believe was New Jersey.  Hillary being a snippy witch that she is didn't drop out until the convention, which I won by 21 delegates.  I leave my convention down 4% to Romney, and go on to win anyway thanks to the 50 foot soldiers I had on election day.

How did you set yours up like that, Rockefeller Republican?

When you're starting a game, you should be able to select which parties you have turned on and off at the first page after selecting the scenario.  You can also turn primaries off, which enables you to simply select the candidates after that page.

I created a custom candidate and picked out a picture for him, but I can't get the game to set the picture as the candidate's photo.  It tells me the bitmap image is not valid.  WTF does that mean?
