I've been thinking a recount button if the result was within 0.5% would be fun.


My most recent.


Giuliani/Sanford
Clinton/Richardson



Clinton/Richardson - 52.7% 268 EV
Giuliani/Sanford - 47.3% 270 EV

I was able to gut Giuliani in the south - GA and TN came within 3% NC, VA, AR and TX were within 7%. Giuliani won MN, IA and WI by 0.2%, 0.6% and 0.75 respectively.

Ok just played as Hillary in a nasty primary battle w Clark and Edwards.

I asked Clark to be my running-mate, but Edwards refused to withdraw from the race. Every week he stayed in (he had 600 delegates to my 2500) it weakened me at a national level. So by the time it was a

Clinton/Clark - Romney/Sanford race it looked like this in the first day of the general election.



Clinton - 36.3% - 37 EV
Romney - 52.3% - 450 EV
Undecided - 11.4% - 51 EV

After losing all the debates, I managed to find Romney's weakspot Homeland Security. I didn't win, but I was proud of the ground I made up.



Clinton - 47.1% - 214 EV
Romney - 52.9% - 324

I let myself loose.

I had a very tight primary campaign, where I managed to wrestle the nomination from Clinton after making a deal with Edwards the week before the convention.

I placed myself as the Governor of Pennsylvania, and selected Mark Warner as my running mate. The Reps selected Gingrich/Sanford.

It was a tightish race to begin with, but I pushed hard on his integrity and won all three debates.

On election night this was the result.



Polnut/Warner - 379 EV - 70,678,910 - 55.6%
Gingrich/Sanford - 159 - 56,439,225 - 44.4%

- Yes I did get 70% in CA, 70.8% in fact.

Again I ran as my socially liberal/economic moderate self from PA.

Another NASTY NASTY primary battle with Clinton ending with Richardson finally endorsing me. Given that I was at 2075 votes only 10 or so short.

Anyway the Reps were Huckabee/Owen - I chose Bayh as my VP candidate.

I flew out of the gates leading him 43 - 39 after 2 weeks. But things tightened around week 5 with him pulling up to a virtual tie at 46-47. But I ran a massive pull of ads in the last few days opened up several states including IN.

Final polls were
- Me, 50.3
- Huckabee 47.1

It ended like this


Those shaded light were the battleground states.

Polnut/Bayh - 340 EV - 66, 038, 544 - 53.6%
Huckabee/Owens - 198 - 57, 189, 901 - 46.4%

The closest state was Huckabee's own state of AR which I won by 256 votes.

This was a nail-biter.

It was Me/Warner vs Giuliani/Sanford.

I got hit by three big scandals in weeks 4 and 5, so I was knocked from a 42 -40 lead to being beaten 44 - 41.

I pushed hard, and got my reward when I went up 12% in GA and 9% in FL. The W.Mississippi corridor opened up for me, but I started to get a flogging in states like PA, OH and OR. This was largely due to the presence of both a libertarian and the constitution candidates.

This was the state of the race before election day.



Polnut/Warner - 205
Giuliani/Sanford - 133
Toss Up - 200

The final result was this.



Polnut/Warner - 339 - 48.8%
Giuliani/Sanford - 199 - 48.3%
Constitution - 2%
Libertarian - 1.9%

Again - yet another nasty primary battle with Clinton, she went all the way to the convention evn though I had 300+ more delegates than I needed. I chose Warner to be my running mate, and Reps selected a Romney/Allen - so in the battle of the Virginian VP noms - who would deliver the state. During the campaign Romney was no closer than 4% behind.

FINAL RESULT



Polnut/Warner - 359 EV  71,305,368  55.8%
Romney/Allen - 179 EV  56,487,938  44.2%

For your information.
VIRGINIA
Polnut/Warner - 1,704,843  52.5%
Romney/Allen - 1,544,366  47.5%

I thought this might be an interesting race.

Barack Obama/Bill Richardson

vs

Rudolph Giuliani/Mark Sanford

+ Lib and Cons.

Things were going ok, Obama led within the margin of error into late-September, then Giuliani pounded me on experience and it hurt (funny, Giuliani went after someone on experience)

The end result.



Obama/Richardson (D)  140 EV  57,770,692  46.4%
Giuliani/Sanford (R)  398 EV  60,916,296  49%
Badnarik (L) 0 EV  4,488,797  3.6%
Peroutka (C) 0 EV  1,223,861  1%


Interesting numbers.
Badnarik got 8.9% in MN, 7.6% in TX and 7.1% in SD plus got over 5% in about 6 other states.

Closest (D) CT - 47.5 - 47.4%
Closest (R) MI - 49.8 - 48.5%

Well - I ended up deciding to create my own Unity Party where I was a billionaire philanthropist.

I decided to create a primary - to boost numbers and recognition.

The Dems were Clinton/Vilsack and the Reps were McCain/Rice, I selected Chuck Hagel as my running mate.

I spent HUGE sums of money - and focused on CA, NY, ME, and KS. I ended up doing quite well.



Clinton/Vilsack - 279 EV - 48,278,182  39%
McCain/Rice - 259 EV - 47,092,958  38.1%
Polnut/Hagel (Likely 1EV) - 28,262,522  22.9%

My target states FYI
NY - C 39.4% P 34.6% M 26%
ME - C 36.4% P 36.2% M 27.4%
CA - C 35.7% P 34.9% M 29.4%
KS - M 39.4% P 37.2% C 23.4%

This was a BIZARRE one.

I ran what I thought were pretty strong tickets on both sides.

Clinton/Bayh vs Giuliani/Sanford vs Peroutka there as an experiment.

I started behind Giuliani by about 2% - we split the debates (incl. a tie) - I got hammered by scandal heading into 3 weeks to go. I recovered and started thumping Giuliani on experience and this was the map heading into election night.



The day before I put up a '7' strength leadership ad nationwide.

This was the result!



Clinton/Bayh - 487 EV - 70,739,259 - 57.1%
Giuliani/Sanford - 51  EV - 51,513,769 - 41.6%
Peroutka - 1,529,079 - 1.2%

Peroutka did likely cost Giuliani - MS, GA, MO, KY - only 40 EV.

Right - I decided a one-on-one match was a good bet.

Me/Bayh
vs
Giuliani/Sanford.


Final results.



Polnut/Bayh- 317 EV - 67,652,137 - 54.9%
Giuliani/Sanford - 221 EV - 55,576,308 - 45.1%

Biggest blowout -
MA - P - 71.3%
 
Closest -
Wisconsin - Giuliani wins by 551 votes.

* I think a re-count  option would be a good idea - instantly recount any state with a margin of less tha 0.1% Plus players could request recounts for anything below 0.3%

Me against Grumpy Fred.

My campaign was essentially a tireless thumping on his experience.



Me/Warner - 404 EV - 72,450,520 - 56.7%
Thompson/(Jeb) Bush - 134 - 55,432,685 - 43.3%

All states coloured light were decided by a margin of less than 1%.

The closest was Kentucky - which I won by 76 votes out of more than 1.8 million.

This is a work in progress - this is the PRIMARY Map that resulted between Clinton and myself.

All the other candidates endorsed me.



I manged to win IA, NH, NV and SC - but she still flattened me on Super-mega-duper Tuesday (I did win CA - and came that close in NY. But I recovered by winning VA and MD - then moved into mini-Tuesday by taking TX, MA, OH and MN by substantial margins.  My momentum maintained holding onto the Pacific NW - while Clinton had a strangehold on the other border states.

Final delegate count.

NEEDED - 2089

Polnut - 2130

Clinton - 2046

Result of the General election against Romney to come.

I chose Richardson as my running-mate.

Because of the pre-convention negative campaign being run by Clinton - I went into the general roughly 3% behind Romney - but more dangerously running a 100 EV deficit.

I maintained a positive campaign - I did use my regular tactic - maintain the base, make sure you have enough EV in the bag to win - then undermine the opponent in their own territory - forcing them to defend their backyard - while I'm able to strengthen my own position. However, that can have a possible backfire consequence - as you'll see, I lost a state I shouldn't have, but also won a couple I shouldn't have.



Polnut/Richardson - 321 EV - 68,129,282 - 53.3%
Romney/Bush - 217 EV - 59,663,923 - 46.7%

Romney's biggest margin was WY - which he won 64.9 - 35.1%
My biggest margin (apart from DC 90 - 10) was CT - which I won 70.1 - 29.9%

Yes I did win TX and AK - having an almost 9m vote PV win doesn't mean much - as TX, IA, MN, FL were decided by less than 0.7%
