(Doing PF colors)

Fail.

It got way too confusing since they were the exact opposite. I will admit, I'm so used to seeing Blue as Republican that the map looks kinda weird.

It's got so annoying for me seeing Republican as red and Democrat as blue, I used Campaigns Forever to edit the colour around the right way.

Although I didn't like some of his more extreme positions, I always found Ron Paul's rapid growth in popularity followed by a rather poor performance (given the amount of money at his disposal) interesting. I decided to run a game as him. The primaries were easy as he swept all the early primaries. After Super Tuesday, his only contender was Rudy Giuliani, who won all the primaries from Pennsylvania on, though he still lost. Ron Paul had a huge lead over Hillary Clinton until the last few weeks, when the gap closed, which led to this map.



Ron Paul: 53.2%, 285 Ev's
Hillary Clinton: 46.8%, 253 Ev's

A 0.5 percent swing in Pennsylvania would've given Hillary the victory. Overall, Paul was a weak candidate in the electoral college in this game.

Wesley Clark/John Edwards (D): 47.2% (274 E.V.)
Mitt Romney/John McCain (R): 51.1% (264 E.V.)
Michael Peroutka (C): 1.7% (0 E.V.)

My liberal Mitt Romney loses despite winning the four most populous states in the country, a feat which has never before been done. The majority of Clark's victories were razor thin.

One of the strangest maps I ever saw.

2004 Scenario...
Mosely-Braun/Bush: 44,292,659
Powell/Rice: 50,804,781

I was Braun. I barely campaigned, and it was still somewhat close.

2008 scenario...
Bayh/Clinton: 51.5%
Romney/Giuliani: 47.1%
Barr/Root: 1.4%

I ran Bayh more as a Centrist. A 4.4, I believe. Barr had a good showing, and was able to pick up 5% in several states. Wyoming was a last second thing. I deployed Hillary to Texas, and she spent a majority of her time there. For the longest time, over 200 EV's were in the "toss-up" category. A lot of close states. I'm proud of myself for getting over 40% in Utah, as well.

Thank you very much. I never would have found this if it wasn't for your help. Smiley

Question: I downloaded the one where Obama was incumbment. How do I play it now? I have the file for it, but that's it.

You need a program like WinRar or Winzip.
http://download2.winzip.com/winzip121.exe

Then you unzip the folder into this folder:

Thank you very much. I got it working. Hopefully, I'll be able to post some results later. I'm curious on the 2012 Obama version, why there is no Palin though...

2012 Scenario with McCain as incumbment...

McCain/Romney: 50.2%
Feingold/Richardson: 49.8%

Interesting outcome. I won every state by around the same amount. Every state Feingold won (minus the 4 in the middle) went to him with over 60% of the vote, causing an extremely close popular vote.

Very bizarre map.



McCain/Palin 49.2%, 345 EVs
Obama/Biden 49.5%, 193 EVs
Barr/Root 1.3%, 0 EVs

The polls were totally wrong. I had a comfortable lead in Texas on election night, yet I never expected to win New Jersey.

^^^
How did you manage to get 60% in Louisiana? It's always extremely close when I play. It's actually not too bizarre, since all of those states are somewhat close at the beginning of the game, except Texas.

I think it might've made during the primaries last, but i'm not sure. I added Palin with the candidate editor.

I was going to do that, but you can never be sure about percentages, how much money, etc. Stuff that determines how well the candidate does.

Lol, I basically just took some educated guess... there may have been some bias in there aswell. Smiley
