I should send info to Hobbes so I can see if he can defeat the power of a candidate who could win his home state.

Social Security all the way!

Ran an attack ad that "backfired" (but sank Santorum's momentum), ran a positive Social Security ad, followed by another negative ad against Santorum (which sank him even more), and a last minute positive ad.

It appears that I spoiled things for Richard Burr.



Another moral victory for the "have lots of money and run on abortion, affirmative action, and immigration" strategy.

Hm.. maybe a bit out there.





Best County
Rossi: Benton County (46.33%)
Gregoire: Jefferson County (42.03%)
Gates: Walla Walla County (45.57%)

Worst County
Rossi: San Juan County (23.85%)
Gregoire: Franklin County (16.02%)
Gates: Asotin County (24.77%)

Closest Counties
Grays Harbor: Gates over Gregoire, 34.45-34.30, 48 vote plurality
Pacific: Gregoire over Gates, 35.30-35.14, 15 vote plurality
Douglas: Rossi over Gates, 39.53-39.32, 32 vote plurality
King: Gates over Gregoire, 37.06-36.75, 2393 vote plurality
Clark: Rossi over Gates, 34.08-33.65, 726 vote plurality

Gates only finished third in Asotin County.

I based my campaign on jobs, attacking Rossi on jobs, attacking Rossi on abortion, and port security.

With 3 weeks left, Gregoire was up 43-33 and I had 20%.

With 2 weeks left, I got to around 25% or so.

With a week left, I cracked 30%

With a few days left, I put it out of reach.

Bill on the issues

Abortion: L
Affirmative Action: C
Budget: C
Business Tax: C
Jobs: C
Tsunami: CL
WASL: CL
Asian Trade: CR
Crime: C
Same-Sex Marriage: CL
Boeing: C
Education: CL
Military Bases: C
Sales Tax: CR
Public Health Care: CR
Renewable Energy: C
State Divide: C
Port Security: CR

I think I intended to put Gates on the left on health care.

Wow, a 135% percent turnout.

Truman/Harriman (D) - 50,524,886 votes (64.4975%)
Eisenhower/Nixon (R) - 27,811,347 votes (35.5025%)

Best states for Truman:
New York - 75/25
North Carolina - 75/25
Vermont - 75/25
Wisconsin - 74/26
New Mexico - 74/26

Worst states for Truman
Arizona - 50.37/49.63
Kansas - 54/46
Iowa - 55/45
Michigan - 55/45
West Virginia - 55/45

In this version of history, apparently Eisenhower turns out to be an inept campaigner.

Using "Ike vs Adlai - 1952" I grilled Eisenhower on Education and Unemployment. After softening up his northern support with criticism of his integration stand.

I almost blew a 17 point lead.

The last poll before the election had me up 57-40

The final results..

Leon Sharpe (R) - 1,177,697 (51.51%)
Janet Napolitano (D) - 1,108,643 (48.49%)



Best County for Sharpe: Yavapai (78%)
Worst County for Sharpe: Apache (23%)

Granted, if the scenario wasn't so screwy that it put the election on a Sunday, then I could have seen it all coming.

And the EV-ish thing for Arizona gave the election to Napolitano due to Maricopa.

But yeah, that tops any other game, meltdown-wise.

I didn't quite top that 69/27 Rossi win a few pages back, but



Webb (R): 69%
Gregoire (D): 29%
Bennett (L): 2%


Best county for
Webb: Adams (80.9%)
Gregoire: Jefferson (37.5%)
Bennett: Skamania (4.4%)

Worst county for
Webb: Jefferson (60%)
Gregoire: Benton (17.4%)
Bennett: Thurston (0.2%)

It only took $15M to elect a guy who wants to ban all abortions with 69% of the vote

Who...is Webb, exactly?

I feel ashamed that I don't know this.

Webb is just a guy who I use for various political sim games. He's basically more conservative than Bush.

And I gave him the home county of Spokane County.
