Barbour v. Obama v. Ventura in 2012. Say hello to President Haley Barbour! He almost pissed away a 10% lead and won by just 3%.

1968 Presidential Election



Richard M. Nixon/Spiro T. Agnew (R): 209 EV, 35% of the PV (36,068,720)
Hubert H. Humphrey/Edmund S. Muskie (D): 198 EV, 37% of the PV (37,299,317)
George C. Wallace/Curtis E. LeMay (AI): 131 EV, 27% of the PV (27,210,445)

In my latest campaign I ran as Governor George Wallace in 1968. Keeping with tradition, I did not begin to run any advertisements until the last week of the campaign. Whilst it seemed my advertisements had no effect on the outcome of the election and that Richard Nixon would be narrowly elected 37th President of the United States, I was proven wrong. In typical President Forever fashion my vote drastically increased on Election Day from a measly 9% to 27% upon the final results. Considering the House was dominated by the Democratic Party, Vice President Hubert Humphrey was elected.

Ron Paul - 271 EV - 52.8%
Hillary Clinton - 267 EV - 47.2

This was an old one I had screencapped... I don't remember the VP's on either side... crazy, huh?

Whilst this is true, we must remember that this is President Forever we are talking about, and a vast majority of election victories, as seen throughout the 103 pages of this thread are quite implausible. For instant Ron Paul's victory over Hillary Clinton, and George Wallace breaking 70% in Lousiana and only 50% in Alabama.

Just played through one as myself, set as a fairly inexperienced Republican from Vermont.

In the early campaign, Clinton was winning quite comfortably, only a handful of states were interested in voting for me - you know you're in trouble when you're losing Utah, SC, TN, KY and it's too close to call in OK.

After a tough fight, I managed to start level pegging with Clinton, and was neck-and-neck going into the final week. The states looked quite bizarre at that stage - I was ahead in California and behind in drawing even in much of the south and behind very strongly in South Carolina.

For the final week, I adopted Conor's Strategum of running ads in the final week (having saved my warchest in previous weeks). I ran three attack ads on Clinton's health care platform, while running a positive ad (ironically) on my integrity at the same time. The positive ad and one negative ad were run in all the states, and the other two negative ads were run in all states except for the ones I'd written off (Mass, Conn, Rhode Island, Maryland, Illinois, Arkansas, Colorado) and the states I was far enough ahead in (not many - Miss, Alabama, Texas, Nebraska, Kansas, Wyoming, Idaho).

The final poll, a couple of days before the election, looked like this (showing strong/lean/tossup) :



I spent the final couple of days in New York and Vermont and my VP in Florida and New York. The election night result ended up being:



Smid (R)             64,339,127   54.4%   455 EVs
Clinton (D)         51,285,665   43.4%     83 EVs
Badnarik (L)         2,012,238     1.7%       0 EVs
Peroutka (C)           668,437     0.6%       0 EVs

My most pleasing result was Vermont, where I received 58.7% of the vote (whereas I expected to lose the state). My strongest result was Wyoming, where I received 81.8%. Also surprising was Rhode Island, which I'd written off as being out of reach.

The nation was remarkably unpolarised - most states I won were in the 52% - 55% range, with only a small handful in the 55% - 58% range. A fairly consistent result across the nation.

I assume you used the infamous 'ad cheat' which is used by all who play President Forever, thus the large victory for Jennings Bryan in 1896? Anywho, Ben what was the margin in Kentucky? Although I'm not surprised that McKinley lost in a landslide, I'm surprised that of all states he carried Kentucky was one of them.

Kentucky was very close; 42.7-42.6.  It had been a toss-up going into election night, and I never went there.

1856 Presidential Election



John C. Frémont/William L. Dayton (R): 162 EV, 38% of the PV (5,287,100)
James Buchanan/John C. Breckinridge (D): 111 EV, 39% of the PV (5,345,676)
Millard Fillmore/Andrew Jackson Donelson (KN): 23 EV, 21% of the PV (2,981,658)

In my latest campaign I ran as Republican candidate John C. Frémont. Throughout the campaign I never expected Frémont to have a chance, yet on Election Day I found myself leading narrowly in the Electoral College, whilst trailing Secretary of State Buchanan by nearly eight points in the polls. Thus on Election Day John C. Frémont was elected 15th President of the United States, despite losing the popular vote to Buchanan. To the dismay of myself, Frémont's election as 15th President of the United States was surprisingly helped by the state of South Carolina, a state I never expected to carry running as an anti-Slavery Republican.

You'd best fix that. South Carolina didn't have elections back then.

Hmm... Debs did well here but why did he do so poor in the West and only one state which was Washington? Dynamism?

I raised money and put footsoldiers in the Northeast and California. By the last week, I had $2m in the bank and ran 2 attack ads and 1 positive ad and released 2 scandals on FDR. I was still behind come election day, but he had -9.6 momentum and I had +3. When I came out of the gate ahead in places like Virginia and Kentucky, I knew I would probably win the race.

Was this on the original PF for the one with the primaries? Texas was 80% and SC was 98% for Roosevelt on the PF+P which I played on.

Original.  I didn't know they had one for 1932; can you give a link?

It's in the forum on 80soft.com

The one for the original had Hoover and FSR tied when you first start off. In the PF+P game, FDR leads 46-28 nationally when you first start off. The south never moves as FDR still broke 90% in SC, TX, AZ, MS, and AL even though he lost the race. That's why I was so happy I came back and beat him.
