1984



Senator Gary Hart (D-CO)/Senator Dale Bumpers (D-AR): 44% of the popular vote, 107 EV
President Ronald Reagan (R-CA)/Vice-President George Bush (R-TX): 56% of the popular vote, 431 EV.

A bad loss, but not humiliating.

I was playing as Hart, and, thanks to Bumpers, I narrowly carried Arkansas, but my biggest achievement was making California competitive. Reagan won his home state by 2%. I think I'm going to play it from the primaries, hopefully knock out Mondale et al early, and fundraise like a lunatic for the general.

1984, with primaries

Sorry for the double-post, by the way.

Okay, so, as I said, I've tried the 1984 scenario, playing as Colorado Senator Gary Hart, with the primaries switched on. It was... strange.

I was experimenting with an ad-heavy, campaigning-light, 'hands-off' strategy, largely as a result of my, y'know, laziness. With millions being spent each turn, my ad buys started to pay dividends as I established a hefty lead nationally. Then came the Maine primary, where I was tipped to win by a comfortable margin.

Alan Cranston won, as expected and, wait, what? Okay, well, that was a weird glitch, but I was still heavily favoured in New Hampshire, which was promptly won by Reubin Askew. What's more, and I can't stress this enough, Askew won New Hampshire in a landslide. I think there was a thirty-point gap between Askew and the runner-up, me. Christ.

Askew won in Iowa, and for a bizzare moment it looked as if the Democratic nomination would come down to a battle between Alan Cranston and Reubin Askew, but I managed to recover enough to win some crucial states, and eventually regain the momentum. Mondale won a smattering of primaries, Cranston carried Virginia and Florida because, I guess, why the hell not?, Askew took Nevada, South Carolina, Georgia and Delaware, and for some reason Fritz Hollings took Connecticut, but I manged to eventually clinch the nomination with a last-minute win in Oregon.



Gary Hart
Walter Mondale
Fritz Hollings
Alan Cranston, or Alan Cranston since you probably can't read that text.
Reubin Askew

The gruelling, weird primary's taken its toll, though. I gulped when I entered the general election to a sea of dark red, Reagan leading with 70% in the polls, and the message 'It is now a tie in Washington, D.C.' flashing in front of my eyes.

To be continued...

UK Presidential Election, 2010

Here's the scenario from the theory spark website:
Quote
You must be logged in to read this quote.
183 electoral votes are needed for a majority.



The Rt. Hon. Gordon Brown, Prime Minister (LAB - South Scotland)/The Rt. Hon. Jack Straw, MP (LAB - North West) - 260 electoral votes and 11,129,201 (45.1%) popular votes
The Rt. Hon. Paddy Ashdown (LD - Dorset & Somerset)/Lembit pik, MP (LD - Mid-Wales) - 63 electoral votes and 5,840,068 (23.7%) popular votes
Boris Johnson, Mayor of London (CON - Greater London)/The Rt. Hon. Baroness Sayeeda Warsi (CON-Yorkshire) - 39 electoral votes and 7,717,378 (31.3%) popular votes

My narrative (i'm very bored at the moment):
The Prime Minister turned his popularity around as he seamlessly pulled the country along the transition from the United Kingdom to the United Republic. Brown quickly becomes the best possible candidate that the Labour Party could field for the position of President of the United Republic.

The parallel Parlimentary election brings a Labour-Liberal Democratic coalition government, but with the Conservatives being the largest single party. The new parliment is headed by Ed Milliband. David Cameron, expecting his party to easily sweep to victory, refused to run in the Presidential Election, instead deciding to endorse none other than Boris Johnson. Nick Clegg, expecting a hung parliment, also refused to run endorsing a party elder, Paddy Ashdown.

As the campaign began, Gordon Brown and Paddy Ashdown both agreed to a none aggression pact, both deciding to attack Johnson. Brown easily built up a lead in the early weeks of the campaign, eventually breaking into traditional Tory strongholds, down south. Ashdown secured leads in the south-west and Northern Scotland. The Johnson campaign began to crumble further as areas such as Kent and Essex ended up firmly placed in the Brown column.

On Election Night, as expected, Brown was declared the President-Elect, winning in a 14-point margin over Johnson, who placed in a distant third in the electoral college.

Duncan Hunter leads the Republican Party to victory and pushes Obama aside in one of the largest landslides in American History! Barack Obama goes back to his senate seat in shame.

(I honestly have NO idea what happened. I ran as Hunter, aiming to get him into position for a VP position. Both parties went to the convention, leading to about 45% of the US being undecided. I guess I kind of exploited it...............but that gives no excuse to the AI!)



Duncan Hunter (R-CA)/Charlie Christ (R-FL)          68,901,890     69.4% / 538 Electoral
Barack Obama (D-IL)/Tim Kaine (D-VA)          30,344,489     30.6% / 0 Electoral

A Republican beating Obama by over 60-40 in DC? It might be time to toss this game in the garbage.

Gore/Obama - 317 ev/52.3%
Romney/Allen - 221 ev/44%
Others - 3.7%

I have no idea how I carried Kansas and North Dakota, neither Gore nor Obama visited there once and I think I ran one commercial in those state during the whole game.

My 2012 Enhanced Election Scenario. It was close but Obama pulled it out over Romney in the final weeks. A note, Puerto Rico is a state in said scenario with 7 electoral votes.



(D)-Pres. Barack Obama, IL/VP. Joe Biden, DE: 305 EV, 50.7%
(R)-Fmr Gov. Mitt Romney, MA/Gov. Andre Bauer, SC: 240 EV, 46.4%
(Con)-Ms. Diane Beall Templin, CA/Mr. Chuck Baldwin, FL: 0 EV, 2.9%

It may take some time, I still haven't found out how to upload such things as the 2012 scenario.

Another go ahead in my 2012 enhanced scenario. Puerto Rico and Arizona were the closest states, if both went to Petraeus, then the nation would have a President-Elect Petraeus instead of the close reelection of Barack Obama.



(D)-Pres. Barack Obama, IL/VP. Joe Biden, DE: 285 EV, 48.4%
(R)-Gen. David Petraeus, NY/Gov. Luis Fortuno, PR: 260 EV, 48.8%
(I)-Mr. Lou Dobbs, NJ/Candidate Samuel Wurzelbacher, OH: 0 EV, 2.9%
