I played as Bell.

Lincoln: 43 EV; 32%
Breckinridge: 45 EV; 16%
Douglas: 110 EV; 29%
Bell: 105 EV; 21%

The election was thrown to the House, who elected...

Douglas Sad Ah well. Crazy map though.

Another 1860 game, this time I played as Breckinridge.

Lincoln: 122 EV; 33%
Breckinridge: 127 EV; 28%
Douglas: 54 EV; 27%
Bell: 0 EV; 11%

The election was thrown to the Republican-controlled Congress, who elected Lincoln. If I had gotten 1% more of Lincoln's vote share in Pennsylvania, I would have won a majority in the Electoral College.

Another game with me running as a rich independent. Gotta love what a third party can do to an electoral map.

Bush: 36% 242 EVs
Kerry: 33% 121 EVs
Wixted: 26% 175 EVs
Nader: 3% 0 EVs

Best State:

Bush: Idaho 60.0%
Kerry: DC 63.2%, New Jersey 46.8%
Wixted: Tennesee 38.8%

What a coincidence.  This game is actually quite realistic - realistic enough that I purchased this and spend a few days of class letting students run their campaigns.

1980: Playing as Jimmy Carter



Carter/Mondale - 468 EVs - 48% PV
Reagan/Bush - 70 EVs - 37%
Anderson/Lucey - 0 EVs - 11%
Clark/Forgot - 0 EVs - 2%

It sucks, I had Reagan down to about 20 EVs and then one of those 9 power scandals broke.

They mixed up the Washington DC and the Washington state results in the electoral trends document.

Also its not that hard to win as McGovern. For some reason he is alot stronger in P4E than in real life, don't really know why. Damn Canadian hippie leftists at 80soft when are you going to learn anything about American politics?

I assume by "tons of money" you mean enough to run ads in all 50 states plus  DC without any real penalty. Because that's the only way to have really accomplished this.

1968 as Wallace:





George Wallace
PV: 26%
EV: 241

Richard Nixon
PV: 35%
EV: 173

Hubert Humphrey
PV: 37%
EV: 125


Congress elected Humphrey president.


The funny thing is that Wallace got the smallest Popular Vote, but the largest Electoral Vote of the three. Wink

Becuase in real life Wallace came extremely close to winning New Hampshire in  1968.

I've gotten crazier results as Wallace.  If you use ads effectively, your only limit in President Forever is the size of your wallet.

I like President Forever more so far, actually.  The duration of a campaign in PF+P is way too long; I'm too lazy to come up with a strategy that will actually work over that long a time period.

Not yet.  My PF strategy of saturating the entire nation with ads doesn't work at all well in PF+F and I haven't find another easy sure-fire strategy to replace it.

Decided to try something completely different:

2006 Pennsylvania - Casey (me) vs. Santorum vs. Pennachio vs. Diamond

Img


Casey (D) - 59% PV
Santorum (R) - 35% PV
Pennachio (I) - 4% PV
Diamond (L) - 1% PV


Best regions:

Casey - Northeastern Pennsylvania - 65.7% (beating Pennsylvania by 0.1%)
Santorum - Central Pennsylvania - 55.8%
Pennachio - Philadelphia - 21.4% (Santorum came in third here)
Diamond - Southern Pennsylvania - 4.2%

Worst regions:

Casey - Central Pennsylvania - 39.1%
Santorum - Philadelphia - 11.9% (!)
Pennachio - Northwestern Pennsylvania - 0.0% (96 votes)
Diamond - Northeastern Pennsylvania - 0.0% (86 votes)

Closest region:

Northern Pennsylvania - Casey wins over Santorum by 5.5%

1912

I was Taft.

Results
William H. Taft-Republican 16,213,865 (28%) 88 Electoral Votes
Woodrow Wilson-Democratic 15,869,180 (27%) 199 Electoral Votes
Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt-Progressive 15,604,322 (27%) 231 Electoral Votes
Eugene V. Debs-Socialist (Moron Party) 9,787,175 (17%) 13 Electoral Votes

266 Needed to Win-Congress Chose Wilson

Wilson underperformed big time in the south, and Taft was close to him in most states (within 10 points)


Does anyone know the composition of the house delgations in Jan 1913? And if majority Republican, who do you think would have won?
