This is a work in progress - this is the PRIMARY Map that resulted between Clinton and myself.

All the other candidates endorsed me.



I manged to win IA, NH, NV and SC - but she still flattened me on Super-mega-duper Tuesday (I did win CA - and came that close in NY. But I recovered by winning VA and MD - then moved into mini-Tuesday by taking TX, MA, OH and MN by substantial margins.  My momentum maintained holding onto the Pacific NW - while Clinton had a strangehold on the other border states.

Final delegate count.

NEEDED - 2089

Polnut - 2130

Clinton - 2046

Result of the General election against Romney to come.

I chose Richardson as my running-mate.

Because of the pre-convention negative campaign being run by Clinton - I went into the general roughly 3% behind Romney - but more dangerously running a 100 EV deficit.

I maintained a positive campaign - I did use my regular tactic - maintain the base, make sure you have enough EV in the bag to win - then undermine the opponent in their own territory - forcing them to defend their backyard - while I'm able to strengthen my own position. However, that can have a possible backfire consequence - as you'll see, I lost a state I shouldn't have, but also won a couple I shouldn't have.



Polnut/Richardson - 321 EV - 68,129,282 - 53.3%
Romney/Bush - 217 EV - 59,663,923 - 46.7%

Romney's biggest margin was WY - which he won 64.9 - 35.1%
My biggest margin (apart from DC 90 - 10) was CT - which I won 70.1 - 29.9%

Yes I did win TX and AK - having an almost 9m vote PV win doesn't mean much - as TX, IA, MN, FL were decided by less than 0.7%

2004 - I played Colin Powell instead of Bush:

Powell (R): 67,136,254 59.4% 463 EV
Lieberman (D): 45,923,588 40.6% 75 EV

Closest states:
Nevada, Powell 50.5%
West Virginia, Powell 50.8%
Massachusetts, Lieberman 51.6%

Lieberman's best:
Rhode Island, Lieberman 59.2%

Powell's best:
Idaho 76%

It gave me a result of 60/40 in D.C.... maybe if I had put some resources there.... Tongue

I was Richardson vs Romney, infighting had much to do with the landslide that followed.

Img


EC:
Richardson: 495
Romney: 43

Pop vote:
Richardson: 58%
Romney: 37%
Liberatarian: 5%

Yes that's right Romeny lost by over 20% of the popular vote...

Henry 'Scoop' Jackson/James E. Carter (D): 270 EV, 48.9% (48,774,164)
Ronald W. Reagan/Richard Schweitker (R): 268 EV, 49.4% (49,346,657)
Eugene McCarthy/Numerous Running Mates (I): 0 EV, 1.7% (1,715,562)

This was a very weird election. I ran as Henry 'Scoop' Jackson against Ronald Reagan for the Presidency of the United States. I decided not to run a single commercial until the final two weeks of the campaign. It managed to work, with me narrowly becoming 39th President of the United States. Thanks to a narrow victory in Lousiania.

You can get the trial version, but it doesn't let you finish the election.

American Government Simulation - 2004



Adam Yoshida (R): 323 EV, 41% (51,180,924)
Allison Marshall (L): 199 EV, 27% (34,240,724)
Nation Hahn (D): 16 EV, 31% (39,136,812)

A very strange game of President Forever as per usual. This time I added a strong Libertarian candidate to the American Government Simulation scenario. I gave her alot of money, $750,000,000 to be precise and a fair bit of points. For most of the campaign I stayed on 10% in the polls until I released a heap of adds attacking President Yoshida's policy on Military Intervention. This worked and I started to make head way in a few states. This resembles the results in the map above.

My best state was New Hampshire, where I managed to gain about 50% of the vote, with Yoshida and Hahn getting the rest of them.

I usually do that, actually.  Well, sort of.  My tactics is generally to blast the entire nation with 1/3 of the ads I can run somewhere around the halfway to the two-thirds point in the election to stop any momentum the other guy might have in its tracks.  And then I wait x days before the election to run the rest, where x is the number of days I can blast the nation with ads again.  That gets me rolling into the election with more momentum that you can shake a stick at.

I've found it to be highly successful.

In the past two days I have ran a very interesting race as Jay Rockefeller vying for the Democratic Presidential Nomination in 1992. I turned Governor Bill Clinton off and turned on Governor Mario Coumo and Senator Bill Bradley. The race ended up being a tousle between myself and Governor Coumo, at one stage I had a slender 4 delegate lead over Coumo, until my lead increased to 193, thanks to which got me the nomination in '92 Cheesy

Here's the Primary map that resulted between Rockefeller and Coumo. Quite interesting I must admit.



Jay Rockefeller 1800 Delegates 49.8% of the Popular Vote
Mario Coumo 1607 Delegates 50.2% of the Popular Vote

After I was nominated at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago, I selected Senator Bob Graham of Florida to be my running mate. Whilst on the Republican side, President Bush replaced Vice President Quayle with Journalist Pat Buchanan!

This is how the map looked like when all the tickets were finalised on July 21, 1992:



Jay Rockefeller/Bob Graham (D): 336 EV (39.5%)
George Bush/Pat J. Buchanan (R): 64 EV (33.1%)
H. Ross Perot/James Stockdale (I): 13 EV (24.4%)
Toss Up/Undecided (T): 125 EV (3%)

As the campaign progressed I attacked both candidates on their Leadership qualities, George Bush's Economic Policy (alot) and Perot's Policy on Bosnia and Somalia. Not to mention I did quite alot of pro-Rockefeller commericials on the Economy, Leadership, Experience and Bosnia and Somalia. On Election Day, I was elected President of the United States defeating President Bush by 8.6% in the polls and by 100 plus EV's here's the map:



Jay Rockefeller/Bob Graham (D): 353 EV, 42.2% (46,407,923)
George H. Bush/Pat J. Buchanan (R): 174 EV, 33.7% (37,076,433)
H. Ross Perot/James Stockdale (I): 11 EV, 24.2% (26,612,509)

I narrowly lost both Texas and Florida by narrow margins, Bush beat me 37.6-37.5-24.9 in Florida and 37.7-37.5-26.8 in Texas. I did managed to win New York and New Mexico with more than 50 percent of the vote.

I take it you got President Forever + Primaries. You can actually download 1992 and 2000 scenarios to add upon the default 2008 one. Not to mention a 1976 and a 1968 one. Hope you enjoy. Smiley

Try the forum on there site.  2000 and 1992 were made, and they have a 1988 and 1976 fan made scenarios. I can't post on the forum for some reason, so I have to wait for someone to upload them to the site, but all of them are available for public download.

Xahar I would suggest that you also download President Forever, the original I think it may be called 2004 now, which I still think is a far superior game than PF+P, even if it doesn't include primaries, and usually gives results that are much closer to reality than PF+P. Plus the overall amount of user created scenarios for that game is enormous and most are very enjoyable and well done.

Plus the Prime Minister Forever games are pretty damn cool as well, I personally think Chancellor Forever and PM4E Canada 2006 are probably the two best 80soft games.

Colin's right you cannot beat old school President Forever, you can run all your ads with just 2 days to go and your right back in the race, even if you haven't run any ads for the whole campaign. It's easier to create candidates in the original then the newer one.
