1976



Governor James "Jimmy" Carter (D-GA)/Senator Walter Mondale (D-MN) - 295 electoral votes and 52,737,833 (52.8%) popular votes
President Gerald Ford (R-MI)/Senator Bob Dole (R-KS) - 244 electoral votes and 45,457,645 (45.5%) popular votes
Eugene McCarthy (I-MN) - 1,640,905 (1.6%) popular votes

Despite the safe popular vote win for Carter, the electoral vote was extremely close, with the election being decided by 1.4% of the Illinois vote. Carter swept the south deep south, winning by safe margins everywhere except for Louisiana (decided by 1.3%). Ford did poorly in "safe" Republican states, not reaching 60% in any state nationwide. The result was closer than expected due to Ford sweeping undecideds in many of the toss-up/lean Democratic states. This resulted in surprising losses for Carter in states like Minnesota, Texas, Wisconsin, Maryland and Ohio.

Exactly. Therefore, for all intents and purposes, it is impossible.

I just used Barkely so the home state bonus could allow ventura to win at least that one state narrowly

You could just give Ventura a larger home state bonus for himself.

1996



President Bill J. Clinton (D-AR)/Senator John Kerry (D-MA) - 316 electoral votes and 44,936,240 (37.9%) popular votes
Senator Phil Gramm (R-TX)/Former Representative Jack Kemp (R-NY-31) - 142 electoral votes and 40,186,688 (33.9%) popular votes
Ross Perot (Reform-TX)/Pat Choate (Reform-DC) - 80 electoral votes and 33,535,522 (28.3%) popular votes

I played at Perot. The electoral would have gone to the house if Illinois, Wisconsin, Utah, Maine had flipped to Perot with Nevada, New Hampshire and Georgia flipping to Gramm. The closest state was New Hampshire which Clinton won by 8 votes.

One of them could change residence. Same thing happened with Cheney and Bush in 2000, since they were both legally residents of Texas. Cheney changed his residence to Wyoming, where he had been a Representative, so it would not become a problem

Jerry Brown for President
The Primaries

I decided to run in the 1992 scenario as John Brown, the weakest candidate of them all (including Harkin, who I have won as easily twice). The major concern that was dealt with was the camapign organisation, taking over 15 weeks to upgrade. Since funds were also scarce, and there were no crusaders, Brown himself has to campaign in various states, depending on footsoldiers to work for him in areas he could not reach. In the end, it proved to be a slugfest between Clinton and Brown, each having upset the other in certain primaries. However, Clinton at the close of the North Dakota primary maintained a narrow lead in the delegate count..........



Bill Clinton - 1203 delegates
Jerry Brown - 1038 delegates
Paul Tsongas - 672 delegates
Bob Kerrey - 494 delegates

Lost at the Convention overwhelmingly. Here are the numbers.......

Bill Clinton - 2217 delegates
Jerry Brown - 1190 delegates

Apparently the character is too polorizing. He choose me for Vice President though......

Heh, I actually wrote an alternative history on another site in which Jerry Brown became President of the United States. This was in 1976, his first try, though I briefly considered setting the timeline in 1992. Bill Clinton became the bestselling celebrity chef in the country.
