Just for fun, I decided to see how ridiculous a victory I could get as Reagan.

1984 - Mondale vs. Reagan (me)



Reagan: 538 EVs - 78% PV
Mondale: 0 EVs - 21% PV

And then the Democratic Party disbanded. Tongue

I just missed getting 90% in Utah; I won there 89.5-10.4.

I tried as Romney once - I didn't spend a cent on advertising - and I didn't leave UT

I still won 130 EV and 42% of the vote.

It's basically a blatant abuse of the way the game overdoes the effect of momentum.  I make four ads and then just blast the entire nation with them intermittently such that I go hard in the negative cash on the very last day of the campaign.  That basically keeps my momentum up at such a ridiculously high level that I just roll over the other guys.

Weird results:

Clinton: 57.5% PV, 349 EV
Romney: 42.5% PV, 189 EV

My best state was Maryland, which I won 75-25; Romney's best state was Wyoming, with 57.5%.  I ran 74.6 in MA, and 73.2 in NY.  I hit him with a high level scandal right at the end, and ran so many ads that I ran out of funds in the final days of the campaign.

This is weird. Look at Utah:

I started out playing as Gore, with Clinton and Obama turned off. My campaign was looking good, but Edwards took leads in all the pre-Super Tuesday states, killing my momentum. Nevertheless, I took it all the way to the convention, with Edwards getting the nomination and choosing Barbara Boxer as his running mate.

On the Republican side, Huckabee and Romney got off to terrible starts, with Thompson taking much of the South and McCain getting the rest. However, soon I saw Ron Paul winning primaries left and right! It soon became a three-way race between Paul, Giuliani and McCain. When Giuliani dropped out, McCain seemed set to win, but he inexplicably dropped out and endorsed Paul, who selected Huckabee as his running mate.

Paul was not a strong candidate, and much of the South opened up to me right away. Although I ran a lackluster campaign, this is how it turned out:



Edwards/Boxer: 339, 44.6%
Paul/Huckabee: 199, 38.9%
Peroutka: 9.4%
Badnarik: 7%

I've never had third parties do that well; they usually combine for around 2%.

If you go to the page before this one, you'll see a heartbreaking election that the 1992 scenario gave me.

Yeah, I saw that.

Playing as Clinton, this is how the GE situation looks at the beginning of primaries:



Smiley

Two weeks later, the Democrats have leads in MN and IA, Bush leads in VA, IN, MS, and ND (losing AL), and Perot has lost all states but ME.

Headline on January 20:

Clinton Cheated On Hillary, With Flowers!

wtf?

Headline on January 29:

Bush Comfortably Ahead Of Perot In Polls

Uh-oh.

Headline on February 5:

Jerry Brown's Disturbing Behavior: Is He Crazy?

LOL

I beat Tsongas 1970 to 1437. On to the GE!

Tickets:
George Bush/Pete Wilson (Dump Quayle?)
Bill Clinton/Lloyd Bentsen (We are going to OWN the South!)
Ross Perot/Pat Choate (Not sure either.)

September 1:

Not particularly optimistic.

Headlines on September 11:

Clinton Scandal!!!
Clinton Scandal!!!
Clinton Scandal!!!

That's right, three.

September 14, feeling better:



Texas helps.

September 20:

The San Francisco Chronicle and San Jose Mercury News just endorsed Bush. I'm confused.

September 28:



It's over.

October 6, if the election happened today:



267-241-30

Election night; Bush has won.

Due to unforseen circmstances (dentist's appoinment yesterday), I was unable to post the map. You'll have to get up in the middle of the night (which, seemingly, is nothing unusual for you) to see it. Sorry. Sad
