1976 (as Ford):




Gerald R. Ford (R-MI)/Ronald W. Reagan (R-CA) 49.6% / 325 electoral votes
James E. Carter (D-GA)/Birch E. Bayh (D-IN) 50.4% / 213 electoral votes

Carter was destroying me up until the last two weeks, then it was almost as if he just stopped campaigning.  Bayh moved around, but Carter stayed put in Nebraska of all places.  He tanked, but hey, at least he won the popular vote.

Howard Dean vs. George W. Bush-2004

I played as Nader.


Howard Dean/Tom Vilsack (D)-297 electoral votes, and 49.8% of the popular vote
George W. Bush/Dick Cheney (R)-241 electoral votes, and 49.4% of the popular vote
Ralph Nader/Peter Camejo-0 electoral votes, and  0.8% of the popular vote

The Closest state was Arkansas, which Dean won 49.8% to 49.5% or by about 3,000 votes! Smiley

Nader's best state was Connecticut with 1.5% of the vote.

Playing as Joe Biden, I managed to win the electoral college and the presidency despite losing the popular vote by over 7,000,000 votes. Biden took only 47% nationally to Rudy Giuliani's 53%.

I had fun playing as Perot.  I targeted only the largest states and just let Bush and Clinton attack each other the whole time.



Clinton - 35.3% (36,677,043) - 186
Perot - 33.7% (35,104,621) - 243
Bush - 31.0% (32,262,888) - 109

I came within 3 of Utah, North Carolina, and 4 of Georgia.  Had I won them, I would have won, BUT...

It turns out that while I won the plurality in the Electoral College and Bill Clinton won a plurality in the Popular Vote, Congress decided to give the election to 3rd place in all counts George Bush.

Best states:
Clinton - New Hampshire (20.1% win over Bush)
Perot - California (15.7% win over Clinton)
Bush - Indiana (12.2% win over Clinton)

South Carolina was the closest.  Bush beat Clinton by 278 votes.

I ran as Robert Byrd in the 1976 Scenario on Hard. Almost lost to Jimmy Carter during the Primaries, mostly because of what became insurgent campaigns by both Jerry Brown and Mo Udall. Somehow, Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan made up sometime during the primaries and ran on a joined ticket, with Reagan as the VP. I would pick Senator Edward Kennedy, to shore up my base among the liberals, and also for his Charismatic ability. The debates were generally a draw, while Kennedy crushed Reagan. Polling showed that I was ahead 57-42, so I was darned sure there would be no hope of a Republican resurgance. The outcome of the final election map suprised me however.



Robert Byrd (D-WV)/Edward Kennedy (D-MA) 55,129,586 56.1% / 478 Electoral

Gerald Ford (R-MI)/Ronald Reagan (R-CA) 43,192,606 43.9% / 61 Electoral


Somehow, with negative momentum, Ford and Reagan made a come-back. It wasn't much, but it was enough to show me that the polling data was heavily schewed in my favor, and my campaigning methods may need to be reformed. Regardless, Byrd won in a landslide. This is actually probably one of the only President Forever games that I would like write a timeline upon, the other being my John Connally in 1980.

Ran as George McGovern in the 1984 scenario from the primaries. I left out Mondale and Hart to create an ahistorical race between McGovern, Jackson, Glen, and Hollings. McGovern easily won the nomination, largely following the endorsement of Jackson, which allowd him to soldify his base, while the party moderates were divided between Glenn and Hollings. I had wanted to pick Barbara Jordan, mainly because McGovern at this point would have to assume that he was going to lose. Why not pick an African American Women, picking up two historical event of note at once? However, Jordan was suffering from major health issues, and would very likely have declined if asked. McGovern himself would have had to realize that putting someone in the copilot's seat, someone who is very VERY ill, would not send a good message. Therefore, he probably would have settled on John Glenn, who was popular, well-known, and experianced.

The election went terribly. Despite McGovern's attempts at attacking Reagan, the odds against him were just to high. Reagan was popular due to a roaring economy, was much more charismatic, and had a massive war chest. McGovern was once again painted as the "Amnesty, Abortion, and Acid" canidate, and even though it did not have the same ring in it, it had the same effect within an America that was moving toward the right. George McGovern would be crushed in a landslide, while Ronald Reagan would achieve the largest popular vote victory since the "Era of Good Feelings"

Henceforth, all sacrificial canidates were titled "McGovern's Children"



Ronald Reagan (R-CA)/George H. W. Bush (R-TX) 51,063,247 61.7% / 499 Electoral
George McGovern (D-NY)/John Glenn (D-OH) 31,675,805 38.3% / 39 Electoral

I have to say, this seems like the exact outcome that would occur if they had really matched up this way in real life.

Actually, in that scenario, I could see Reagan winning 50 states. I don't think that Glenn would be McGovern's running mate though, in the very unlikely event that McGovern would be nominated in the first place.

I actually came within - IIRC- 30 Electoral Votes of beating Reagan as McGovern in 1984. The trick is to go really, really, really negative, all the time. Any backfires are more than made up for in terms of the negative momentum the other candidate gets.

Spacebarred through the 2007 Lousiana Gubernatorial Scenario. It was really interesting, because it appeared that Jindal had it tied up. However come election day, Blanco managed to pull out an EXTREMELY narrow victory. By the game's standards, Jindal actually won, but electoral votes aren't used for gubernatorial elections.


Republican: Bobby Jindal 1,340,062 49% / 221 Electoral

Democratic: Kathleen Blanco 1,340,670 49.1% / 183 Electoral

Libertarian (me): Horn III 51,448 1.9%

When Donald Trump is in the running, he likes to use a LOT of adds with his millions. Not the best speaker by far, but he is able to reach many more people than he would otherwise. As a result, his canidacy pretty much messed up the map, since he appealed to just about everyone, causing victories for others that would probably never happen.



George W. Bush (R-TX)/John Danforth (R-MO) 38,507,912 36.5% / 267 Electoral
Al Gore (D-TN)/Bill Richardson (D-NM) 36,767,256 34.8% / 216 Electoral
Donald Trump (R-NY)/David Boren (R-OK) 30,261,689 28.7% / 55 Electoral

Bush, though in this scenario it actually makes sense, as he had captured a majority of both the electoral and popular vote.
