After Bayh easily beat Biden and Richardon in the primaries, he moved on to face Romney, who narrowly defeated Giuliani. Bayh had the momentum from the get go, and never looked back. Though Romney won all 3 debates, and Giuliani beat Clinton in the Vice Debate, Romney never got on track, and it ended up being an easy Bayh win.

Bayh/Clinton: 113,545,584          58.1%  436 Electoral Votes
Romney/Giuliani: 81,768,721       41.9% 102 Electoral Votes



How did you get turn out like that? Shocked

Well, I started early on Texas. Actually, I ended up getting 59% there. Possibly due to the fact I campaigned a lot more in WA, OR, and the Mideast caused it to be heavy Democrat. I had a large lead, so I just went after lean-Republican states, and got a LOT of footsoldiers.

I just did the most amazing thing on President Forever.
So I ran as Hatch in 2000. I made Romney his VP. They faced off against Gore and Nader.

Popular Vote;
Hatch- 48.6%
Gore- 48.7%
Nader- 2.7%

So, like in RL, Gore wins the Popular Vote.
The Map:

Just like RL 2000, percentages and everything, minus New York.
Okay, now, Hatch won Florida by about 30,000 votes, but let's take a close look at New Mexico. Though it wouldn't sway the election...
Hatch- 612,803
Gore- 612,804
Nader- 51,066
Shocked

Ran as Obama in 2008. Primaries were difficult, but I controlled things after Super Tuesday. Obama chose Sebelius as his VP, and Giuliani chose Mark Sanford (lol) I was behind a lot early, but after the economic fiasco, I ended up taking over the week before the election.

Didn't do as well as Obamain RL, but I still did allright.

Obama-51.1%
Giuliani-47.8%
Ruwart- .6%
Baldwin- .5%


Closest States: Virginia, Louisiana, North Carolina, Alaska

It's the first time I've ever played this game, and I did horribly as you can see Tongue

Yeah, it's a little difficult to figure out at first, certainly the primaries, but you'll figure it out after a while.

I just played as Badnarik in a Kerry/Allen/Badnarik race, and managed to pull off 9% of the popular vote nation-wide. Better than I was expecting, and I even managed to come in with 31% of the vote in New York. It's such fun to play as a third party instead of the main parties. (Allen won, however.)

You should maybe chose the "easy" mode in this case. I managed to win with 54% in my first time so.

I played as Ralph Nader in 2004, and watched things unfold:

I my mind, George W. Bush decides not to run for a second term, Dick Cheney also declines to run. Colin Powell destroyed Lincoln Chaffee in the Republican primaries, winning every state.

The Democratic Primaries were between Howard Dean and John Edwards, at the start, Dean had a small lead over Edwards, but soon Edwards took the lead, and took a comfortable win.

At the Convention, Powell chose Chaffe as his running mate and Edwards chose Tom Vilsack.

During the entire campaign, Powell was winning by a landslide in the polls, and Edwards was never winning more than five states.  Edwards won every debate, but this didn't affect Powell numbers.

And on election day, Colin Powell won in the largest landslide since 1820, and was projected the President-elect at 8:35 PM.
Colin Powell/Lincoln Chaffee - 535 electoral votes, and 59,513,528 (61.4%) popular votes
John Edwards/Tom Vilsack - 3 electoral votes, and 36,369,665 (37.9%) popular votes


Edwards also barley carried Washington, DC:

Edwards-106,436 50.4%
Powell-103,556 49%

Now that I know what I'm doing, I did an Edwards v. Gingrich rematch, and barely won 281-257. Gingrich narrowly carried Oregon with 7000, and Tennessee by 20,000 or so. Edwards narrowly held onto California, by about 1.5%, and carried Connecticut with less than 2000 votes. A screwy map, but I'm glad I finally won.

I find it hilarious how the 08 scenario is based so much off the 04 numbers. (I.E. California and Hawaii can easily fall into the swing column and Indiana is almost as red as Wyoming and Idaho.)

Beating Obama in 2012 is nearly impossible. I'm like, 20 points behind him now, and I normally easily win on President Forever. And, it's on EASY.

That's because it was, in November 2007.

California and Hawaii are less excusable.

Hillary Clinton (D-NY) / John Edwards (D-NC) : 318

David Coppersmith (R-NC) / Joe Lieberman (I-CT) : 220


I lost my homestate by 34 votes. I barely carried most of the Clinton Southern states and shockingly win big in WV.

IDK What happened in " Hillary Safe" Wisconsin. I won it by 8 points?

Oh.. and I won Texas by a slim marign of one point 50-49
