President Gerald Ford of Michigan / Senator Bob Dole of Kansas 48.232.038, 48.3% PV, 275 EV
Senator Lloyd Bentsen of Texas / Governor Jerry Brown of California 49.957.043, 50.0% PV, 264 EV

A very 2000 like election; for most of the evening it all hinged on Florida (40.000 vote margin but much closer earlier on) and Iowa (which the networks refused to call despite a 52-45 split).

Like Gore Bentsen lost his homestate. Had he won either his own homestate or Brown's he'd have won the presidency.

Rhode Island had a 3.000 votes margin for Ford and was the closest state.

2012:
I created a scenario with Sanders running as an indie



Obama: PV - 43%; EV - 382
Romney: PV - 42%; EB- 156
Sanders: PV - 15%

What a cool place America would be if that happened.

2000:
I played as McCain and picked Engler as my running mate, Gore focused most of his efforts in the south while I spent most mine in the Midwest. the debates ended up 1-1-1 and neither one could really gain much over the other in the polls. on election day the undecided broke mostly for Gore, which sadly swung a few states I was leading in, such as KY and MO to go Gore. I won the EC he won the PV.



McCain/ Engler: PV - 48.4%; EV - 295
Gore/Lieberman: PV - 48.7%; EV - 243
Nader/LaDuke: PV - 2.9%

It's weird how Gore always seems to lose the EC even when winning the PV narrowly. The worst I ever saw was Gore-McCain playing out as 49.3-46.8 and 254-284.
I was Nader.
