Playing as Harry vs. PBrunsel, Nation, and Hughento.

Image Link

276-262 PB win. I gave myself and PB a very limited budget and gave Nation and Hugh huge amounts of cash

I needed 2,031 votes in Vermont, (where Nation was within 3,000 of winning) and 30,812 in New Hampshire (where Hugh beat me).

National results:

PB: 37%
Harry: 36%
Nation: 14%
Hugh: 11%

Here's my results from the 2020 scenario:

Image Link

Stephanie Herseth/Michael Garcia-32% 343 EV
J.C. Watts/Melissa Hart-29% 163 EV
Matt Gonzalez/John Eder-19% 25 EV (Washington, Oregon, Vermont and Maine)
Michael Badnarik/Diana Devot-17% 7 EV (Alaska and New Hampshire)

Arizona and Rhode Island should also be >20%.

The two closest states were Florida and North Carolina in which I won both by around 7,000 votes


I played the scenario again using Bob Casey (for some reason I started out 9 points behind in the polls
Image Link
Melissa Hart/Adam Putnam-48% 279 EVs
Bob Casey Jr/Barack Obama-51% 259 EVs

The 1972 game has a huge flaw, they confused DC with Washington state, so McGovern basically gets an extra 6 EV's.

Playing as Goldwater (the scenario gave me a lot of money)

Image Link

Goldwater--58% 461 EVs
Johnson--41%  75 EVs

For whatever reason, DC wasn't included in this scenario.

My strategy was basically to use my money and bombard the entire nation with ads (all positive, except for my first one, which backfired in one day, but nevertheless hurt Johnson a lot).

Intresting Result.

George W. Bush vs. John Kerry vs. myself vs. Michael Badnarik with regionalism and dynamism turned off.

Kerry was it with a wave of big scandels, power 5-9, and I did well in debates against Bush, for some reason it had me, a third party candidate debating the President. I changed the how established party to 5 though.

Image Link

Bush- 36% PV- 348 EVs
Kerry- 32% PV- 161 EVs
Wixted- 29% PV- 29 EVs
Badnarik- 1% PV- 0 EVs

I played this were every party was on an equal playing field. Each had a 5 in established and each had $100,000,000 in funds to begin with.

The match up was Bush vs. Kerry vs. Myself vs. Badnarik. Same as above in the settings. Huge scandel against Bush in the last week led to a huge rise in both my and Badnarik's vote. A small Kerry scandel in the last two weeks also hurt him.


Image Link

Bush- 30% PV- 171 EVs
Kerry- 33% PV- 155 EVs
Wixted- 29% PV- 212 EVs
Badnarik- 6% PV- 0 EVs

Best States:

Bush: Idaho- 55.3%
Kerry- New York- 43.8%
Wixted- Vermont- 40.3%
Badnarik- Nevada- 18.5%

Worst State:

Bush: Rhode Island- 21.9%
Kerry: Idaho- 20.1%
Wixted: Nevada- 16.8%
Badnarik: Maryland- 0.0% (389)

Dean (me) vs. Bush:

Image Link

Bush: 283 EVs (50% PV)
Dean: 255 EVs (49% PV)

Weirdest #%^(ing map I ever saw.  I won Florida and Indiana while losing Illinois and New York.  I was also within 5 points of winning Kansas.

Let me get this one straight. Howard Dean loses his solidly Democratic state of birth while landslide Missouri and winning Indiana?

I noticed this too. It isn´t such a problem when you´re playing with McGovern and both states/districts are yours in the end.

Of course, your EV number is messed up when you lose D.C., er, I mean Washington.

Yep, pretty much.

Wasn't even close, either; Bush got 58.5% in New York and 56 something in Illinois.

Why do these simulations give such strange results that we haven't seen in real life (except maybe for 1976)?  If a few political junkies can do so well in unexpected places, why can't real presidential campaigns do so?
