I actually managed to do it. Donald Trump is the new President of the United States!



Donald Trump (R-NY)/David Boren (R-OK) 37,322,032 35.4% / 303 Electoral
Al Gore (D-TN)/Joe Lieberman (D-CT) 38,435,589 36.4% / 210 Electoral
George W. Bush (R-TX)/Steve Forbes (R-NJ) 29,716,136 28.2% / 25 Electoral

Again, Al Gore lost the election while winning the popular vote. I might do a timeline on this, as I think a Donald Trump Presidency might be quite interesting.

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

Who won in the house?

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

He didn't get a majority of either.

2008 enhanced

Democratic Primary


Orange/Brown - Senator Barack Obama (D-IL)
Green - Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY)
Red - Former Senator John Edwards (D-NC)
Blue - Governor Bill Richardson (D-NM)


Republican Primary


Red - Former Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA)
Green - Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R-NY)
Blue - Former Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Newt Gingrich (R-GA)
Purple - Former Senator Fred Thompson (R-TN)
Orange - Senator John McCain (R-AZ)
Grey - Romney is the presumtive nominee, so he wins by default


General Election


Former Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA)/Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson (R-TX) - 281 electoral votes and 65,221,167 (50.0%) popular votes
Senator Barack Obama (D-IL)/Governor Tim Kaine (D-VA) - 257 electoral votes and 63,767,988 (48.9%) popular votes
Others (Ruwart, Baldwin) - 1,419,156 (1.1%) popular votes

I played as Obama. This election was down the wire all the way. Romney held a RAZOR thin lead for the entire election, on election day he was 1.5% ahead of Obama in the final polling. Obama's hopes rested on victories in New Mexico, Iowa and Nevada to get a 269-269 tie and Romney had to hold onto Iowa, Colorado and Nevada to win outright. Obama held the lead in Nevada for most of Election Night until the final few minutes of the count when Romney suddenly took the lead; he won the state by 208 votes. Iowa swung back and forth the entire night, finally landing in the Romney column when he won by a 1% margin. The Obama campaign could have won if they hadn't written off Ohio and Florida, which Romney had held small leads in for the entire election, succedding (during the summer) in leaving less than 1% of undecideds, making it nearly impossible for it to turn blue (or red in the forum's case).

I'll send it if somebody can tell me how. When I try to find my custom made scenarios to attach for downloads or whatever, I can't find them.

I ran a merciless campaign attacking Reagan on the integrity issue- he had negative momentum almost constantly from the conventions on. By Election Day, I had a lead of about 310, but I had no idea it would be such a landslide.

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.

Agreed.
People often forget that while LBJ and Nixon won enormous landslides against extremists, Reagan did so against a normal Democrat who might've not been moderate but was 5 miles away from being an extremist (although pv wise Reagan got only 58.5% of the vote). If his opponent was an extremist he might've won all 50 states and win the biggest pv since the Era of Good Feelings.

Just ran a very fun 1992 game. I played as Perot.

Bush led for most of the election, with Clinton only leading the week of the Democratic convention.  Perot was in third until late-September, when he tied with Clinton for second. Near the end I made a push to get Perot to win California and New York, and came very close in both. Bush only beat out Perot in California by 12,000 votes.



George H. W. Bush: 413 EVs/38.4%, 42,292,438
Ross Perot: 70 EVs/30.7%, 33,825,187
William J. Clinton: 55 EVs/30.9%, 33,979,239

Perot was <2% away from winning Utah, Wyoming, California, Montana, and Missouri.
Perot was <5% away from winning Colorado, New Hampshire, Connecticut, New York, Delaware, and Kansas.

Ah, 1996. All things considered, a pretty dull election. Clinton should win this one easily, with a predictable electoral map and wait what the hell-
