I just played the 2000 scenario as Al Gore. (No, this doesn't mean that I am hopping on the Gore 08' bandwagon). I've determined that just about anyone in Gore's situation could have won the 00' election. I did with no whining and Nader at 5% of the vote. In other words, no challenge at all.



Gore/Lieberman (me) - 51% - 384 EVs
Bush/Cheney - 41% - 154 EVs
Nader/LaDuke - 5%
Browne/Oliver - 1%

What scenario? Most scenarios (including the ones given in the original game) are heavily biased in favour of Democrats. I remember the Gore v Bush that used to exist was heavily biased in favour of Gore, for instance.
It's the "Bush vs. Gore" scenario. I don't see how it's slanted...considering that I started the game (as Gore) with 90 something electorals and 4 points back in the polls.

Actually no dynanism...just the ad cheat where when it gets to 1 day left you run like 134 ads and it drains your money but the game ends before it can penalize you.

Giuliani/Allen
Warner/Bayh
Thompson/Phillies
Lamarche/Gonzalez



I used as little ad cheat as possible, but I had a ton of states that were close so I went about a million over budget. I was within 3% in Virginia, Tennessee and Georgia. It was probably one of my best games ever IMO.

I thought I might avenge Rudy, haha. I finished with 34 million left in the coffers and didn't use Dynanism.



Rudy Giuliani - 62% - 515 EVs
Mark Warner - 35% - 23 EVs
Cobb - 2%

It's actually funny, Cobb did better in Utah than Warner did.

Negative ad campaign, 4 crusaders, an assload of foot soldiers, and 3 high level scandals on my opponent.

I watched this one happen, not doing anything, as Stern. This was the closest and most entertaining election Ive dealt with. It came down to Delaware, which was tied on election day...




Gore/Rendell: 50% 270 electoral

Romney/Frist: 49% 268 electoral

Stern/Krawchuck: 1% 0 electoral

How in hell did a Democrat win Nebraska?

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.

There is something I noticed was very odd about this scenario. Why does Washington start so lopsided?

Fiscal Conservative + Social Liberal + Anti War + Tons of Money = Victory with 32.6% of the vote!

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.
