2012 Scenario:



Newt Gingrich/Mitt Romney 452 EV, 57.7% PV
Barack Obama/Joe Biden 86 EV, 42.7% PV

Obama was leading until the final week by about 48-44. On the eve of the election I had 268 EVs in my pocket. Good ad strategy, foot soldiers, and strong third debate performance.

In the primary I edged out Cain in Iowa and New Hampshire and got a nice national boost. Cain beat me in SC/FL however, and Romney took every Feb state except for Arizona (which I won by a hair). Cain, Romney, and Gingrich split Super Tuesday and eventually I rebounded, gaining the endorsements of everyone who dropped out, and secured the nomination with California with about ~54% of the delegates. Picked Romney as VP to  hammer Obama faster.

2012 Scenario is fun. Some states need to be fixed though.

I've noticed in the 2012 scenario NV is made too democratic.

Is this the scenario I made?

The Scenario theory spark released. Also Obama seems to have 0% chance of beating Hillary when she is turned on. It is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to easy to win as her.

That, and Obama faces some pretty severe headwinds from "Poor Economic Indicators" the ENTIRE game.

For whatever its worth, does anyone know where I can more scenarios? I checked theory spark, and their forum, but every single scenario availiable is impossible to attain.

Which scenarios are you looking for? Any in particular?

Who said one vote never made a difference?

That'd be even better if the final margin was less than 6 EVs.

In the 1968 scenario, I won the election by winning Wisconsin by 11 votes as RFK. Good times.

Obama/Christie 2012



I replaced Romney with Christie in the primaries and spacebarred with Root. Cain won Iowa/SC/Fl and Christie won NH, followed by an odd Perry upset in Nevada. It seemed that Cain would walk away with the momentum, but lost everything except Minnesota in February. Gingrich won Washington. On super Tuesday, Cain carried ID, ND, Georgia, and Tennessee, with Perry carrying Texas and Christie everything else. Then Perry surged, and won everything except Hawaii which he lost to Gingrich and Alabama which went to Christie. He swept April 22 and came within 50 delegates of winning when the Oregon primary came around, but lost it and everything else to Christie thereafter.

Christie led the entire election, although Obama closed the gaps with the debates. Pundits declared this the election that killed the electoral college and made heads roll. Nobody knows why Hawaii and West Virginia broke ranks the way they did...

Obama/Biden: 312 EVs - 47.9%
Christie/West: 226 EVs - 49.6%
Others: 0EV -2.5%

Interesting states:

Hawaii: 54.1% (R) - 43.8% (D)
West Virginia: 52.5% (D) - 45.3% (R)
Connecticut: 50.2% (D) - 47.4% (R)

Closest state: Minnesota 49.5% (D) - 47.8% (R)

Carter/Kennedy v Bush/Anderson
EV: 464 - 74
PV: 55.6 - 44.4

I was Kennedy in the primaries. Won Iowa and New Hampshire but lost Massachusetts and all went downhill from there. I lost by about 400 delegates. General was easy. Tightened in the middle and Bush came within 47/48 of Carter but my lead was never lost. Pulled ahead on election night to win a landslide.

Cuomo/Clinton - 313 EV - 39.2% PV
Bush/Quayle - 217 EV - 36.8% PV
Perot/Stockdale - 8 EV - 24% PV

Played Cuomo in the primaries. Won most of the early states save Iowa, but Clinton made it a battle to June 2 for delegates with narrow victories in Southern states. I secured the nomination on June 2 by about ~20 delegates, with 100 to Tsongas and Brown each, and Clinton had the rest. Brown endorsed me and I made Clinton my running mate.

Closest States:
Nevada: 33.8 - 33.6
Colorado: 36.4 - 36.2

1980 Primary



Kennedy: 1,642 delegates, 48.8% PV
Carter: 1,632 delegates, 51.2% PV

I finally beat Carter. Cheesy

I'm going to run this twice. Once with Carter as VP, the other with Kennedy picking somebody else. PIPs are exhausted so unless Carter drops out of his own accord, it could get dicey. The Republican nominee is Reagan who crushed Bush in a landslide, and Anderson is an Independent.

1996: Giant Sucking Sound (President Perot)



Biden/Richards - 364EV, 40.2% PV
Schwarzkopf/Donlan - 138EV, 31.5% PV
Perot/Cox - 36EV, 28.3% PV

Started as Biden in the primaries. Won Iowa and New Hampshire, but it was a struggle from there. At the end I was in 3rd, with Gore in 2nd and Richards in 1st. I got Gore to drop out and endorse me and selected Richards to be my VP. Was tied at 30/30/30 the whole campaign until election night, where all the undecideds broke my way.

I like Hagrid's formatting, I think I'll utilize here!

1980 scenario which I edited slightly (added Biden as a character).

1980 (Nagas's Edit)




     
Former President Gerald Ford (R-MI)
159 Electoral Votes
46.5% (37,841,948)
     
Senator Joe Biden (D-DE)
379 Electoral Votes
48.9% (39,822,969,)
Representative John Anderson (R-IL)
0 Electoral Votes
4.6% (3,753,002)

Turned Kennedy/Carter off in the primaries and turned Carey, Proxmire, and Brown on. Biden led most of the time after victory in Iowa and New Hampshire, but Proxmire's endorsement of Carey in May made things dicey. Ford upset Reagan at the end of the primaries by winning California and attaining a bare majority. Ford led for most of the race, but Biden slowly closed the gap. On election night, many key battleground states (Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania) leaned toward Ford, with Pennsylvania being called for Ford early in the night. However, the margins reversed and I ended up carrying every battleground state and then some (South Carolina, Texas).
