Update- This game is weird. Bayrou and Le Pen are now tied with 11-10% each about.

That looks like a really cool scenario Hashemite. If you have enough time you should make a France 1995 scenario for the US Presidential Election of 1996 (I believe there is a scenario for it, not sure where exactly on the 80soft forum it is though). Is there a chance that you might be able to send it to me and to the others that own President Forever + Primaries? I know I would Wink.

I have a question. With a French what-if, how would it work? A candidate needs to get an absolute majority of both the Electoral Votes and popular vote in the first round, or else the candidate with the most popular votes and Electoral Votes in the second round wins, for example?

Not at all. My scenario just uses French candidates in an American electoral system.

     I got PF back on my computer! In celebration, I ran through 1992 as Bush, running the most phenomenally negative campaign the world had ever seen. As an ultimate act of humiliation, I won Arkansas & Tennessee.

How did Perot win WA out of all places?

     I aggressively attacked Clinton in every close state. There were a bunch of states where he placed third behind Bush & Perot. The final result in Washington was something like:

Perot: 35%
Bush: 33%
Clinton: 32%

     It's also worth noting that Kansas was a swing state between Perot & Bush for the entire last month. I stopped campaigning there because I thought it would be interesting to have Perot win at least one state. The final result there was:

Bush: 36%
Perot: 35%
Clinton: 28%

     I decided to go ahead & try one of the most impossible elections: 1920. I ran admirably, but it took me about four weeks to research one scandal (WTF?), destroying my chances at winning. I ended up losing narrowly while winning the popular vote.



Harding/Coolidge, 41%, 295 EVs
Cox/Roosevelt, 46%, 236 EVs

     I decided to take a break from running impossible races & ran in 2004 as an independent candidate I created. Wink



Djibril/Eiliger, 35%, 265 EVs
Bush/Cheney, 31%, 146 EVs
Kerry/Edwards, 32%, 127 EVs
Badnarik/Campagna, 0%, 0 EVs

     Congress elected Bush president. Makes sense. After all, why would they elect the guy who came within spitting distance of the White House? Roll Eyes

     Anyway, the map isn't a joke; almost every state was decided by a razor-thin margin. California was decided by under 7,000 votes (!!!).

What were the characteristics and strategy of your candidate?

     I gave him my own positions. I was lazy Tongue & wanted to see an interesting race, so I gave him 4 & 5 in every stat, along with $2 billion to blanket the nation with ads (I could've waited until the end to completely saturate the nation, though I don't do that because I don't find it to be a fun way to play). Tongue Also, I cycled between ads promoting myself, attacking Bush, & attacking Kerry. Used extra CP to get endorsements & then recruit foot soldiers. Basically my typical PF strategy (well, except saturating the nation with ads, of course).

That's nothing. It took me the whole election once to research a scandal on Fabius in my French scenario.

What's up with SC? The legislature would never elect a free-soiler.

If there are only a couple hundred legislators in the state, that means fewer people you need to bribe to win. Smiley

Why the need to post a million 538-EV sweep maps?

Unless you win 99% of the vote at the same time, like Sarkozy Tongue

     I looked in the electoraltrends.p4e file after the election. Fremont was given a base of 30% there; low, but much higher than any other state in the South. I changed it to the more reasonable value of 0.

Much better. But since it's the legislature, also give Buchanan 100.
