Democratic Primary
Red = Me
Blue = Clinton
Green = Obama

Very closely run thing - I got Obama to endorse me 2 weeks before the convention, and I won by 25 delegates.


General...close in the early days, but I stayed positive and....



Polnut/Bayh - 435EV 56.4%
Romney/Jindal - 103EV  41.6%
Paul - 1.4%

Best state (not DC) - Vermont 73.2%
Worst state - Utah 34.5%
Closest state - Texas by 359 votes... damn it!!!

The light coloured states were the white undecideds before the election...

2012

It was a very long and confusing republican primary in a six way tie with Romney, Huckabee, Palin, Thune, Daniels, and Paul.



Pink-Thune, Red-Paul, Dark Red-Palin, Sky Blue-Huckabee, Blue-Daniels, Dark Blue-Romney

Thune, Romney and Huckabee were the only ones left after the primaries. Thune dropped out in early July, then Romney dropped out and endorsed Huckabee right before the Conventions. Obama led up to election night and then won in a landslide.




Obama/Vislack 59.9%
Huckabee 37.2%
Ruwart/Barr 2.9%

I was Ruwart, and did not campaign at all. This was a test scenerio.

JCP: Purple State/Bacon King - 285 EVs, 46.4% PV
POP: AndrewCT/NiK - 253 EVs, 39.9% PV
RPP: AHDuke99/New Leader (??) - 0 EVs, 9.4% PV
CHR: Xahar/Al - 0 EVs, 4.3% PV

Andrew is one tough SOB to nail in this.  Scandal after scandal after scandal.  I think we both ran out of campaign funds at the end due to the constant attack ads on each other lol.

Interesting to note is that I was ahead in the South since the beginning of the election.  Andrew managed to throw three high damage Scandals at me and won most of the states (discounting Florida, Louisiana, and Alabama).  Texas was the biggest battleground state that I only lost during the last week.

A close three-way between Warner-Clinton-Obama. Warner/Obama became the ticket vs.
Huckabee/Johnson. Here's the map:


Warner won with 53.4% of the vote. He was up by 2 points going into election day. Was down by 16 in Texas ,but only lost by 2.

I won 538 electoral votes as Colin Powell in the 2004 simulation. Unfortunately I didn't save it.

I ironically did that too today. It really isn't that hard. Most of the time it comes down to just campaigning in Vermont, Massachusetts, and D.C.

Well yeah, the 2004 scenario is seriously broken. I just spacebarred through it as Nader and Bush won 50 states+DC against Clark. 

Try accomplishing the same result in reverse playing as the Democrat for a real challenge. Wink

Naw, just two handy cross-primary endorsements from Bacon King and Meeker, followed by three triumphant debate performances, and two 50 state ads for the last week(one with a power of 8 and 7) coupled with three scandals three day before the election, for good measure. Tongue

President Gerald Ford of Michigan / Senator Bob Dole of Kansas 48.232.038, 48.3% PV, 275 EV
Senator Lloyd Bentsen of Texas / Governor Jerry Brown of California 49.957.043, 50.0% PV, 264 EV

A very 2000 like election; for most of the evening it all hinged on Florida (40.000 vote margin but much closer earlier on) and Iowa (which the networks refused to call despite a 52-45 split).

Like Gore Bentsen lost his homestate. Had he won either his own homestate or Brown's he'd have won the presidency.

Rhode Island had a 3.000 votes margin for Ford and was the closest state.

I just downloaded this.  So far I have played as McCain and Clark and both times I ended up in the second place in the delegate count at the convention.  Though if I played as McCain again I could probably win the nomination; I just didn't know what I was doing at first.

1936- I played as Huey Long



Long/Wheeler- 273 EV's, 39.2%
Landon/Knox- 147 EV'S, 28.1%
Roosevelt/Garner- 111 EV's, 29.2%

I won the election when I won Arkansas. Roosevelt suffered the most due to negative campaigning from Long and Landon

I just pulled off one of my best comebacks ever on Hard. In 2008-Wonk, narrowly made it through the primaries with Feingold. On September 1st, I was down 38-52%. Two weeks before the election, I was down 42-51%. On election day, internals had me down 45-48.2%. I ran an extremely negative campaign in the last few weeks, and Romney never really gained enough momentum to win. On election night, in an upset...



Romney/Pataki: 218 EVs, 48.9% Popular Vote
Feingold/Clinton: 320 EVs, 51.1% Popular Vote

I actually find it somewhat believable for 2008. Oklahoma is certainly a stretch though, and I think Feingold would win Arkansas before Louisiana. But other than that, I'd say as weird as it may look, it's not that bad.

Never led on this one, by won 51.5-48.5% on election night. Keystone Phil would be really proud of this...



Santorum/Pawlenty: 51.5%, 319 EVs
Obama/Clinton: 48.5%, 220 EVs

This one was just plain screwy.

Ran as 'me' and clinched the nomination just before the West Virginia primary in May. Obama remained in the race, and I even offered him the VP spot 3 times, but refused it.

After the convention my numbers went through the floor due to angry Obama supporters it seems, at one point, this was the map...





Polnut/Clinton - 130 - 29% (Democrat was 45% before convention)
Romney/McCain - 372 - 44% (eventually made it as high at 49%)
Toss Up - 36


I pushed him hard, I absolutely drowned the airwaves, thankfully my heavy fundraising efforts worked... but something very odd must have happened in the electorate...

as this was the map... I lost NH and MN, but won AL and TN? Also the closest state...  WV and LA, by around 5,000 votes. Even TX was decided by less than 1%




But think this was my best comeback

Polnut/Clinton - 327EV - 54.2%

Romney/McCain - 211 - 45.8%

So, I finally bought Prime Minister forever and my girlfriend and I played it. I played as Harper but I changed the platform to my own personal beliefs. I did not recover. Caitlin played as Dion. Layton somehow won the game. Tongue

She closed the game before I could save it and show how pathetic we are.

Playing with friends is always fun, more so on PMF than on PF+P. I played it with my friend, and Layton and Duceppe both came back to annoy us until we bonded together and kicked his ass.

1992:

I played as Buchanan and was able to, after a long primary, beat Bush. Tsongas and Clinton took it to the convention where Tsongas won. Perot took enough Dem votes from Tsongas to give me state I couldn't have won otherwise, so I won in a landslide.



Buchanan/Pete Wilson: PV - 40.9%; EV - 437
Tsongas/Lee Hamilton: PV - 32.8; EV - 87
Perot/Stockdale: PV - 26.4; EV - 14
