I've noticed in the 2012 scenario NV is made too democratic.

Is this the scenario I made?

The Scenario theory spark released. Also Obama seems to have 0% chance of beating Hillary when she is turned on. It is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to easy to win as her.

That, and Obama faces some pretty severe headwinds from "Poor Economic Indicators" the ENTIRE game.

Good to know that my scenario easily defeats the scenario that the actual game developers actually released Cheesy

Though yes such a horrible scenario.. I played and I was amazed at how horrible it was.
I love your scenario Smiley

1976:



Ronald Reagan/Jesse Helms-280 EV's,47.7% PV
Jimmy Carter/Walter Mondale-259 EV's,51.2% PV
Eugene McCarthy-1.1% of the PV

This is probably the weirdest game I have ever seen on PF. I played as McCarthy and spaced my way through the game, and Carter mostly dominated the race. Reagan won the last two debates, and Helms barely beat Mondale in the VP debate. In the final pre polls Carter was expected to win big time by winning NY and Texas. But on Election Day, Carter lost both and won Montana and Oklahoma instead, which was unexpected.  McCarthy had 0.5% in the polls and ended up with 1% out of nowhere. I have to admit this was entertaining to watch play out.

Using the March 2007 edition....
EDIT: Image removed, since Tinypic reuses URLs. This one was reused for a rather bizzare picture.

Total results are displayed. Johnson got 8% in Alabama, otherwise, he averaged around 1-4%. It was Locke/Clark vs Romney/Cheney. I was Locke, who I made this afternoon. I started with a strategy of winning NH, NV, Georgia, and Delaware. I expanded into Iowa in August, which I won. I won NH with 45% of the vote, and NV with 50% of the vote. Obama got knocked down quickly, and endorsed me after Super Tuesday. Richardson and Edwards won alot of states, and Biden built up a small mass of delagates, but my real battle was with Hillary. It went to the convention, which I won by 1000 delagates after Richardson and Edwards endorsed me. Romney had no competition it seemed, but then again, I put Hagel, Frist, Allen, Pataki, and Gingrich on as well, so votes were split.

I decided to try Obama v Santorum... I had him pick Susana Martinez as his VP choice.

It was actually incredibly close with neither Obama or Santorum breaking 44% until the last 3 weeks, with I started to spin like crazy and saturation advertising and Obama started to pull away eventually with a 47-44% lead on election day... and this was the map.



So Obama was already at 316 EV

and when all said and done...



Obama/Biden: 405EV - 55%
Santorum/Martinez: 133EV - 44.1%
Others: 0.9%

2012:



Perry/DeMint 55.7% and 358 EV
Obama/Biden 44.3% and 180 EV

Always kinda screwy. Hard to ever get a very close/down to the wire election night on PFP, I only recall getting that once playing as Edwards in 2004.

80% in Wyoming, 81% in Utah, 76% in Texas... lol

Edited my fictional character into a 1976 scenario:

Primaries



Chris Garrett (VT) 1505 final delegates
Carter (GA) 1432 final delegates
Byrd (orange), Wallace (yellow), Jackson (red)

Focused on a few big states, lost the final states (a whole lot of them) in a landslide, but eeked out a majority.

You lost your home state?

I really like the 2012 scenario! Just got to 400-odd delegates as Jon Huntsman, quite an achievement.

Can't wait for the Santorum surge update!

I've tried, briefly, with Cain and Romney on, and it seems like no one other than Romney, Gingrich and Cain have any sort of chance at winning the nomination.

This, although stays true to IRL I guess since the game starts just as Perry crashed. Assuming Santorum'll be boosted in the next update.

It's actually the 2008 Regional Primaries scenario -- I removed Obama/Clinton/Edwards/McCain/Romney/Huckabee at the start, so the nominees turned out to be Gore/Feingold vs. Giuliani/Romney.
I'm spacing through as Peroutka.

Polling map as of September 15th, 2008.


Note: I'm just cherry-picking the ridiculous maps.

1992



Beat Brown and Tsongas easily in the primary. Won most of the Northern states while Clinton won most of the Southern ones. Eventually won the nomination. As for the GE, Bush was winning up until the last week or so when I hit him with a big scandal and ran a massive ad campaign. Cool to win with under 40% of the PV.

It is friggan impossible to win as Feingold, it took several tries just to get him through the primaries. After I finally won the nomination with him, this happened. Angry
