A strange and very very narrow comeback after trailing in the polls for weeks on end as WJB in the 1896 election.

Polling on day before election:


Actual outcome:


Democrat William Jennings Bryan of Nebraska/ Arthur Sewall of Maine - 225 electoral votes, 47.9% popular vote

Republican William McKinley of Ohio/ Garret Hobart of New Jersey- 222 electoral votes, 48.3% popular vote

National Democrat John Palmer of Illinois/ Simon Buckner of Kentucky- 0 electoral votes, 2.1% popular vote

Prohibitionist Joshua Levering of Maryland/ Hale Johnson of Illinois- 0 electoral votes, 1.7% popular vote

That looks a lot like 2004 with the colors and parties flipped.

It's interesting playing the older elections how often that seems to happen.

Playing as Joe Biden, I managed to win the electoral college and the presidency despite losing the popular vote by over 7,000,000 votes. Biden took only 47% nationally to Rudy Giuliani's 53%.

Ron Paul of Texas (376 electoral votes, 53.8% popular vote)
Barack Obama of Illinois (162 electoral votes, 46.2% popular vote)

Playing as Ron Paul, my only real unexpected defeat was Nevada, although I had done a bit of late campaigning in Washington as well.

It is, electors in Minnesota just couldn't vote for them though (right?).

Exactly. Therefore, for all intents and purposes, it is impossible.
I just used Barkely so the home state bonus could allow ventura to win at least that one state narrowly

You could just give Ventura a larger home state bonus for himself.

What's even funnier is that Obama still wins West Virginia and Georgia. Tongue

Mississippi and Kansas were also flipping back and forth on election night. (Along with WA, RI, and NJ)

If you play the 2004 scenario starting from the primaries, its ridiculously broken. Every state will turn Republican solid for Bush before the general election even starts.

And with a semi-realistic map to boot.


Yeah, quick question, what were the figures in West Virginia and Texas?

I had to reload from a saved game, so the figures might have been off a bit but...

West Virginia
Bush 49.6%
Dean 47.7%

Texas
Bush 57.8%
Dean 40.4%

2008 Democratic Primaries:


Evan Bayh
Hillary Clinton
Barack Obama

Despite leading in the delegate count substantially, Bayh lost the nomination at the convention after Clinton dropped out.

George H.W. Bush/ Pete Wilson 45.5% (409 electoral votes)
Bill Clinton/ Al Gore 40.5% (129 electoral votes)
Ross Perot/ James Stockdale 13.9% (0 electoral votes)



Early on, Clinton had 10 point lead in the national polls, but somehow I managed to turn things around by election day.

2004:



Howard Dean/ Bill Richardson 51% 360 electoral votes

George W. Bush/ Dick Cheney 46.9% 178 electoral votes
Ralph Nader/ Peter Camejo 0.7%  0 electoral votes
Michael Badnarik/ Richard Campagna 0.7% 0 electoral votes
Michael Peroutka/ Chuck Baldwin 0.7% 0 electoral votes


I have no idea how Dean ended up losing MN on election night.

1980:



Ben Fernandez/ George H.W. Bush 47.2% (442 electoral votes)

James Carter/ Walter Mondale 41% (96 electoral votes)
John Anderson/ Patrick Lucey 11.8% (0 electoral votes)

Another bizarre election result brought to you by President Forever. Yes, in a national 1980 Republican blowout, the Democrats managed to win Indiana, Vermont, and Connecticut, but Fernandez somehow managed to pick up West Virginia and Rhode Island from Carter.

2000:


Alan Keyes/Condoleezza Rice 49.1% (270 electoral votes)
Al Gore/ Dick Gephardt 47.2% (268 electoral votes)
Ralph Nader/ Winona LaDuke 2.7% (0 electoral votes)
Pat Buchanan/ Ezola Foster 0.9% (0 electoral votes)

Another ridiculous outcome from P4E. Apparently it doesn't take into account race or radicalism in determining candidate's effects on states. If it weren't for running out of money and getting hit with 3 scandals in the final week, it would have been a blowout victory for Keyes.

Closest states were Vermont, Maine, Ohio, and Delaware, all lost by Alan Keyes by less than 1%. Roll Eyes
