Running as a Paulite Republican I could win with Trump's map switching out Penn/Michigan/Wisconsin for maybe Virginia, NH, and Maine for 280 EVs.

I could pass myself off as a Clinton-esq Democrat if I toned down my economic positions. I could win with Clinton in 2016 plus Florida (favorite son!) and keeping at least Wisconsin and maybe Penn and Michigan through smarter campaigning to keep the turnout up.

Before you say anything about the implausibility of this map, I know it wouldn't happen. Me winning the EC at all would be hard. But I think this would be my absolute best showing, if I had to be forced to determine a 'ceiling' point for me.

Echoing my post from 2017, I would not be able to win 270.  However, if I did, this is probably how I would scrape by:



Florida, Georgia and North Carolina barely stay in the GOP column despite low evangelical and rural turnout due to high suburban margins and a slightly better performance among independents.  Wisconsin flips due to very heavy campaigning there but with a more traditional Walker-esque margin/county map.  Minnesota barely flips due to very high margins in the TC suburbs and a bit of a Midwestern home region effect.  I am able to appeal to the angry women of New Hampshire, calm them down and bring them home, baby.  President Tom.

Let's just say I forge some papers to 'prove' one of my parents was American and I move to the U.S; perhaps to Texas. By 2056, when I'm 55 years old, I'm established as the governor of the state as a socially conservative, Catholic Hispanic (Hey, I'm more native than Warren already) Democrat.

I jump in into the 2056 Democratic primaries, making a large play on 'minority' voters. I win the primary against challengers from Washington and Colorado.

In the General Election, I run as a soccon-fiscmod populist while using my Catholicism, and after two terms of a Republican President since 2048, the country is ready for a change. I have strong support from 'traditional' Democratic areas while boosting WWC support somewhat. I'm against the GOP VP from Vermont, who is capable enough but fails to shine in the big stage. A minor scandal breaks out when I'm accused of being Argentinean and not American, but its quickly 'covered up'.


An electoral victory in the 300's, and a 52.5-46.3 NPV win. Not bad, not bad.

Alancia (D-TX) /// VP Guy (D-NY): 300+ Electoral Votes, 52.5% PV

GOP VP (R-VT) /// VP Guy (R-ND): 100+ Electoral Votes, 46.3% PV

Later, in 2060, my devilish plan to become U.S President gets uncovered by the press, and I lose in to the moderate Connecticut Republican. Sad. Fake News.

Atleast I got the 'foreigeners-can-be-president' amendment passed and Roe v. Wade repeal before I lost, though.

Hold NV, CO, NM, VA, NH, MN

Flip NC, IA, WI, ME-02, MI or PA (preferably both but one would be enough to win a close one)

I'm doubtful I could win OH/FL/IN. Maybe one if the running mate is from there. Ohio running mate could make OH & PA competitive but could be risking more western parts of the Rust Belt (IA, WI, MN). An FL running mate could make FL, GA competitive, but then the whole Rust Belt could go Republican a la 2016. Longshots are IN, MO, TX, SD, MT.

Straight, white moderate or center-left running mate from IA/WI
