Just a weird election over all...



Me/Denny Hastert v. Gore/Clark

Close Ones!
-Lost New York by 60,000 votes
-Won Oregon by 5,000 votes
-Won Connecticut by 12,000 votes
-Won Pennsylvania by less than 200,000 votes

That's Just Messed Up!
-Gore wins Arizona by nearly 200,000 votes and loses New Mexico by around 13,000.
-Nearly winning New York, overcoming an 11 point deficit in only two weeks of work.
-Gore takes 48.5% of the vote in Kansas.

Triumphful <Deleted>-Kickings!
-California, 62.1-37.9
-Ohio, 60.5-39.4
-Michigan, 57.4-42.5
-Taking Illinois by about 80,000 votes after never seeing it go red all game with six weeks of effort.

Final Score
Me 423, 54%
Gore 115, 45%

Nope, I never play with dynamism.

That's what makes it so weird.

Leonard Hobbes/Denny Hastert (R) 56%  473
John F. Kerry/John Edwards (D) 43%  65

Popular Vote Tallys: R-70,670,053; D-53,672,172

My campaign themes were center-left on gun control, center-left on military intervention and integrity. 

Early on, I just waited to build up 4 ads, which with 3 1/2 weeks to go I ran for only 2 days, and my two best ads for one more day.  After triumphing against Kerry in the first debate, I managed to turn more or less the entire country red, except for VT, NY, PA, DE, MD, NJ, WV, IL, HI and WA.  I focused on winning WA, IL, and PA in the next few weeks, while Kerry's campaign decided to hit up states like AL and KY.

With a day to go before the election, I had about $14 million in the kitty left, and Kerry had flipped IN and KY (?) into swing states.  I unleashed my 3 best ads, throwing money at every state I could, and burned $8 million in the first day added my 4th ad to the total, and definitely went over on election day (but who cares?).

I was upset when I lost NY 51-49, which prevented me from my first 500 game on PF ever.

My first 500+ game!



Played against Wesley Clark/Hillary Clinton, this time with my VP being from Colorado.

I ended up with 56% (70,768,796) to Clark's 43% (53,594,434), and 509 to 29 in the Electoral.

Poor PBrunsel, I lost Iowa.

Hobbes/Owens (Progressive) 45%  420 electoral votes
Inhofe/Rice (Republican)  33%  118 electoral votes
Dean/Richardson (Democratic) 20% 0 electoral votes

The new Bull Moose Party (played on The Wedge - 2008 scenario) destroyed, basically because I targeted Dean with three highly successful ads on terrorism and one highly successful Hobbes integrity ad that I spaced out nationally for three days over a two-week period.  On the last day I ran $3 million worth of one anti-Dean ad, effectively regulating the Democrats to third party status.

Nixon: 62%, 514 EVs
Kennedy: 35%, 23 EVs
Faubus: 1%

Why Georgia, why?
