Lots of people talked about the only way for a 3rd party person to win/get any states was for them to be like Perot and have lots of money.  This is true!

As you can see, Kerry almost won, but, of course, it went to the House where Bush won Sad

WHEE! Smiley

Made a new scenario, starting on August 1.  I was Badnarik, switched all positions to Right on first day, to left on last.

Here's how it turned out:

Image Link

PV (B-K-N): 44% (55,847,756)- 44% (55,532,221)- 11% (14,011,201)
EV (B-K-N): 249-289-0

THE swing state: Texas.  Final tally: Kerry: 35.9%, Bush: 34.3%, Nader: 29.6%.

Kerry % map:
Image Link

Bush % map:

Nader % map:

Best states:
Kerry: Michigan, 66.6%
Bush: Idaho & North Dakota, 74.2%
Nader: Texas, 29.6% (he also got, 29.4% and 2nd place in Alabama)

Worst states:
Kerry: Utah, 19.3%
Bush: New Hampshire, 27.9%
Nader: Missouri, .5%

I remember one time I was playing the 1932 scenario as Hoover. About a week and a half before the election, it was neck-and-neck. I thought to look at my platform and was like "wtf this platform sucks" so I completely changed it without thinking about what would happen and subsequently lost all but two states. Cheesy

My best result so far as Perot.  Rather slapdash effort on my part throughout, especially as I grew convinced I wasn't getting anywhere.

As usual, of course, I surged in the last weekend and in the last two days before the election, gaining PA and WA.

CA and UT were complete suprises, as I thought Clinton and Bush had them in the bag, respectively--of course, I only won California by 65,000 votes.

Beat Bush in the EV count due to CA and TX, and got a good 24% of the PV.

That's nothing compared to a result I got [I don't know when]!

Whatever they were originally set as in the 2004 scenario. I didn't change the candidates themselves at all, I just gave everyone $100,000,000 and a party establishment of 5.

Badnarik isn't in the 2004 scenario in my game Tongue

I won as Taft, easily defeating TR, Wilson, and debs:

William Taft (R): 35% of the Pop. Vote; 331 Electoral Votes

Woodrow Wilson: 27% of the Pop. Vote; 142 Electoral Votes

Theodore Roosevelt: 23% of the Pop. Vote; 58 Electoral Votes

Eugene Debs: 13% of the Pop. Vote; 0 Electoral Votes

That's nothing Wink Once, I won the entire solid south as Taft Cheesy

I've been using the 'make lots of ads and then deploy them the week before the election' strategy.  Except I've also been researching strategies.

Let's just say this: Whee! Grin

(Note: I use Dynamism, because it's fun)

Monday, November 1st's polls have revealed some interesting phenomena (percentages listed Clark (Clark Change)-Bush (Bush Change)-Nolan (Nolan Change))

CA: 57 (+11)-39 (-3)-3 (+2)
NM: 52 (+12)-45 (-11)-1 (0)
KS: 53 (+18)-42 (-7)-4 (+2)
MO: 53 (+12)-44 (-11)-2 (-1)
LA: 62 (+31)-34 (-8)-2 (+1)
TN: 53 (+13)-44 (-13)-2 (0)
GA: 56 (+24)-41 (-5)-1 (0)
MI: 57 (+12)-30 (-13)-11 (+3)
IN: 50 (+15)-48 (-5)-0 (0)
MD: 67 (+27)-30 (-7)-1 (+1)
NY: 49 (+11)-45 (-11)-5 (0)
CT: 57 (+18)-34 (-5)-1 (0)
VT: 66 (+26)-28 (-10)-4 (+1)
ME: 60 (+17)-35 (-5)-3 (0)

Nolan also inexplicably gained 12 points in Arizona, bringing the total there to 42 (-3)-34 (0)-16 (+12) (Yes, somehow even though Deleware is 'Bush country', and states such as New York were 'Bush country' before the ad blitz... somehow, Arizona was 'Clark solid' Tongue

Election update is next post...

EDIT: Bush also has a 32 point lead in Minnesota Tongue

This time I wanted to see if the strategy works for 3rd party candidates... I guess it does Smiley

Image Link

Howard Dean- 43%, 271 EV
George W. Bush- 41%, 267 EV
Ralph Nader (me)- 13%, 0 EV
Michael Badnarik (I finally made him Tongue)- 1%, 0 EV

The campaign was crazy.  Up until the last week or two, Dean was failing... then a nicely timed scandal and 3 debate wins gave him somewhat of a fighting chance.  The thing that put him over the top, however, was my last second ad blitz's one negative ad against Bush Cool

Dean

Best States:
(DC 67.9%)

Clark is a beast for this strategy.

Once again, I used 'The Strategy', but this time, instead of doing anti-Bush Leadership ads, I did anti-Bush Integrity ads.

Here are the changes in one week, sorted by + Clark Change (listed in +Clark/-Bush form.  bolded if they are now 'Clark country'):

Nevada +36/-13
South Carolina +36/-11
Kentucky +35/-10
Rhode Island +35/-7
Indiana +35/-6
South Dakota +34/-4
Nebraska +33/-4
Utah +32/-14
Mississippi +32/-12
Montana +32/-7
Idaho +30/-14
New Hampshire  +30/-13
Louisiana +30/-10
West Virginia +30/-5
Missouri +29/-11
Minnesota +29/-8
Tennessee +29/-6
Maryland +29/-5
Vermont +28/-28
Kansas +28/-10
Virginia +27/-27
Wisconsin +27/-18
Iowa +26/-13
Colorado +26/-11
Maine +24/-10
North Dakota +24/-8
Washington +24/-4
Arkansas +23/-12
Oregon +23/-6
Oklahoma +23/-6
Delaware +20/-10
Arizona +20/-4
New Mexico +19/-8
Alaska +19/-3
Wyoming +18/-9
Connecticut +15/-8
Alabama +11/-2

Now I'm moving Clark over to GET IDAHO Angry (Idaho, Alaska, and Alabama were the only ones not swayed to the Clark side (Clark side. Dark side.  Geddit?  Haw haw haw haw haw); Alaska and Alabama are Bush leans and Idaho's a Tossup with +1 Bush)

Oddly enough, the best Bush state right now is California :S where he is leading by 28% (60-32).

The result in this election was rather disappointing; I gave Federate $80,000,000 to start out with, but he didn't do so well considering Sad (I suppose it's because my anti-Bush ad backfired, though I did get a couple of scandals on him (and Kerry contributed) within the last week so his momentum was -442 on Election Day Shocked (Kerry's was -122, mine was +168))

Image Link
Kerry/Edwards: 37%, 234 EV
Bush/Cheney: 34%, 138 EV
Con Federate/Reb El: 28%, 166 EV

I didn't win any states that weren't targeted in my electoral strategy.
