I just ran a campaign for Governor of Michigan and lost by 135 votes statewide.  It was nuts.

I had fun playing as Perot.  I targeted only the largest states and just let Bush and Clinton attack each other the whole time.



Clinton - 35.3% (36,677,043) - 186
Perot - 33.7% (35,104,621) - 243
Bush - 31.0% (32,262,888) - 109

I came within 3 of Utah, North Carolina, and 4 of Georgia.  Had I won them, I would have won, BUT...

It turns out that while I won the plurality in the Electoral College and Bill Clinton won a plurality in the Popular Vote, Congress decided to give the election to 3rd place in all counts George Bush.

Best states:
Clinton - New Hampshire (20.1% win over Bush)
Perot - California (15.7% win over Clinton)
Bush - Indiana (12.2% win over Clinton)

South Carolina was the closest.  Bush beat Clinton by 278 votes.

Aw, man...I forgot about this thread! I played for the first time in a while last week and got a ridiculously close result. It was one of the best campaigns I've run yet. It came down to a little over 100 votes in Washington and I won. I wish I saved the map!

I think it was something like this:


279-259

I remember spending way too much time defending the Northeast (because I was Obama facing Giuliani) and neglecting everywhere else. I started losing the Midwest near the end and thought I was done for when the whole area started going Republican. I won the popular vote by only a few thousand too. It was awesome...SO close
