2004:  Colin Powell vs. Howard Dean



I barely even had to campaign.  The hard part was beating Bush in the primaries.

Absolute Domination - 538 to 0.

Powell vs. Braun (2004)



PV:

Powell:  65.5%
Braun:  27.5%
Nader:  2.9%
Peroutka:  2.1%
Badnarik:  2.0%

Only my fifth playthrough - I lost the primaries in 1980 with Ford in my first, destroyed Dean in 2004 with my second, came in second with Perot in my third, won as Cuomo in 1992 with my fourth, and now I utterly decimated Braun with Powell with my fifth...Not bad.

The 2004 scenario is entirely broken and pretty much impossible to lose as the Republican, just fyi.

I was guessing so...There was no way I could win 80% of the vote in Texas without something being wrong.  Still, I thought it was cool.

DC was the closest election...I think it was 45-41...Nader got 10% there though, so he killed Braun's chances at winning any electoral votes.

People are making you pay for scenarios? That's got to be a scam.

No, I have 2008.  You can play 2004 scenarios with 2008?  I was saying I was going to have to buy 2004.

1936:



Not bad...Not particularly difficult either though.

I managed to come in first as Huey Long, but I don't have the results.

Strange map...I played as Perot.

1992:



H. Ross Perot/James Stockdale:  201 EV; 33.1%
George Bush/Colin Powell:  199 EV; 33.8%
Andrew Cuomo/Ann Richards:  138 EV; 33.2%

Bush ended up winning in the House, but still, it was neat to win as an Independent.

Goddamn, you did really well.

I must ask, however, do you mean Mario Cuomo, and not Andrew Cuomo? Wink

lol, yeah I meant Mario.

I was surprised Cuomo did so badly.  I couldn't believe Bush pulled off Illinois either...

I was really surprised by the results.  I was only projected to win the Northeast, the Mormon Triangle, and the Dakotas, but I ended up doing much better.

I couldn't get that one to work... Sad

Anyways, I created a 2012 election using Campaigns Forever (and it took forever).  Jindal won the Republican nomination, and ended up winning 0.4% of the popular vote vs. Obama's 98.6%...He got 29 votes in Vermont...I think I need to make some revisions...
