2008




Senator Barack Obama (D-IL)/Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) - 346 Electoral Votes and 72,074,077 (61.5%) Popular Votes

Former Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA)/Former Governor George Pataki (R-NY) - 192 Electoral Votes and 45,114,505 (38.5%) Popular Votes

Nearly all of Romney's wins were razor thin.
Impossible. Romney is unbeatable in General Elections. Wink
I think your hate for Romney is greater than my hate for Huckabee, which I always thought to be impossible.

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 have no idea how this happened. The polls suggested a conventional map on election day. I think it was my last minute rush of national ads that affected some areas more than others (the polls showed Obama with an edge).

Yep, did I ever deny it?
He's gone after my religion, which is never a positive. He raised taxes as governor, then, when Govenor Mitt Romney asked Huckabee if he did, he kept going around the question, which is a big negative for me. Also, he kept going after Romney, even though McCain was the frontrunner, and the one who's views differed from Huckabee's. Huckabee's campaign seemed to be focused on bringing Romney down.

Anyone? Smiley

Also, how do you even make scenarios?

I;'ve just played an extremely close election on the 2008 historic scenario. I played as Kennedy and lost the electoral college while winning the popular vote. Hawaii, Wisconsin and Alabama (which were all won by less than 1%) would've sent the election to the house if Kennedy had carried those states.



President Ronald Reagan (R-CA)/President George H. W. Bush (R-TX) - 291 Electoral Votes and 54,478,943 (33.7%) Popular Votes
President John F. Kennedy (D-MA)/President Lyndon B. Johnson (D-TX) - 208 Electoral Votes and 55,037,616 (34.0%) Popular Votes
President George Washington (N/A-VA)/President John Adams (F-MA) - 39 Electoral Votes and 29,596,291 (18.3%) Popular Votes
President Thomas Jefferson (DR-VA)/Vice President Aaron Burr (DR-NY) - 0 Electoral Votes and 13,930,237 (8.6%) Popular Votes
President John Tyler (W-VA)/President William Henry Harrison (W-VA) - 0 Electoral Votes and 8,828,057 (5.5%) Popular Votes

Cut the scenario with Winzip and paste it in the Scenario folder.

My first complete campaign.
As Obama, I easily destroyed Clinton and Gore in the Primaries and could rapidly concentrate myself on the general elections.



I picked Edwards as my running mate. On the republican side, Giuliany won very closely against Romney and nominated Brownback.
I never lost the solid lead I had, even if I did a bit worse than expected :



Obama/Edwards : 63.077.202 ( 53,8% ), 332 E.V.
Giuliani/Brownback : 54.111.381 ( 46,2% ), 206 E.V.


Oh, and the most great : Texas results
Obama : 49,9
Giuliani : 50,1
I strongly campaigned here and it was the closest state !

Some states sure are weird. For example, as a Republican, I've never lost Florida, and only won Iowa once. And as a Democrat, I rarely win Florida and Missouri. Louisiana is always extmremely difficult to win as a Republican, as is New Hampshire.

Can I ask you some help ?

I'm trying to use the candidate editor, and I managed to understand everything except one thing : the candidate's percentages. Could someone try to explain me what exactly means "starting", "committed", "leaning", "undecided" and "alienated" percentages and what are their exact effects ?
For example, naively thinking that "starting percentage" was the percentage owned by a candidate at the start of an election, I tried to set them at 100. As a result, the real score was.. 0% ! What does it mean ?

Uh...
That threw me off too!
I think, starting percentage is the number you would get on election day. If you have 100% committed, you would have your starting percentage as your polling percentage. I think that leaning is undecideds who would break for you, and undecided are ones that could easily be swayed, but would also vote for you.

I could be wrong. If I am, I apologize.

It's so hard for me to win Virginia and Wisconsin ,but I can win CA and MN so easily.

     I've found that time & time again, regardless of year, party, campaign, etc., Colorado is consistently one of my worst states. I can't count the number of 48-state landslides I have won where I have lost Colorado.

Just played the 2008 with historic candiates scenario again. I played as George Washington.



Going into election day, I was only leading in New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia, but a set of 4 ads (two for Washington leadership and one each attacking Eisenhower and Roosevelt) catapulted me forward come election night winning some states out of no where and holding the leading in the popular vote throughout the count. I was the only candidate to break 40% in any state.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower (R-NY)/President Richard Nixon (R-CA) - 196 Electoral Votes and 45,392,922 (28.0%) Popular Votes
President George Washington (N/A-VA)/President John Adams (F-MA) - 195 Electoral Votes and 51,989,001 (32.1%) Popular Votes
President Franklin D. Roosevelt (D-NY)/President Harry Truman (D-MO) - 147 Electoral Votes and 44,263,284 (27.3%) Popular Votes
Others (Adams for the Democratic-Republican Party and Tyler for the Whig Party) - 20,239,137 (12.5%) Popular Votes combined.

Unfortunatly for Washington, the winner of the Popular Vote, and Eisenhower, who had a pluralty of the electoral votes, the Democratic congress chose President Roosevelt to become president once again.

Looks very original to see Roosevelt winning in Vermont and Eisenhower winning in Alabama.

It's supposed to take place in '08, so the states are all in 2008 voting patterns.

To be realistic, you should modify GE percentages using the html.

Just finished the democratic primaries on the enchanced 2008 scenario. It's so cool, it has all the events even things like the "ZOMG! Sniper fire!" moment.

Image Link

Red - Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH)
Blue - Governor Bill Richardson (D-NM)
Yellow - Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY)
Green - Senator Barack Obama (D-IL)

Current game date June 9, 2008. The Republicans have picked Governor Romney and this is the map going into the summer:



Polls showing
Romney 46.7% (288 EVs)
Obama 42.3% (102 EVs)
Ruwart 0.4%
Baldwin 0.4%

Undecided 10.1%
Toss Up States 148 EVs

I have a way to go.

Mitt Romney/Mark Sanford - 154 EV and 43.3%
Others - 6.1%
