The most doubtful part is being able to serve for 12 years representing a majority black district as a white Democrat. I mean, look what happened to Capuano.

2024 election in the Republican states if "national divorce" was realized. SC was very close and TX, where Trump won by 0.7%, decided the presidency. Based on recent state polling.

2020

Alternate timeline where Hillary is elected in 2016 and the FEC draws new lines after the Democracy Protection Act of 2017 hands redistricting powers to that organization. This benefits Clinton unfairly. The country is also Maine-ruled to "better reflect the residents of states who vote for the opposition party." ITTL, Congress with the President's support, can pass constitutional changes without needing to send it to the states. In 2020, Clinton loses by 4.7% nationally in the popular vote since the Act is unpopular. Clinton had a trifecta from 2017-19 and lost the Senate in 2018. The gerrymandered House protected the Democratic House majority. I used the Maine rule for this map but one could draw "electoral vote districts" and come to a more unfair result if wanted.

2024


Democrats in a midnight session of Congress and with a narrow quorum in the Senate, with VP Kaine presiding, overturn term limits allowing Clinton to run again. She loses by about twenty points nationally but her districts are so strongly gerrymandering that she persists. Even if her coalition began to fail she could afford to lose 28 marginal districts and still win. I tried to keep the numbers realistic. The Texas numbers are roughly based on the margins (of U.S. House seats) I was able to get as a Democrat gerrymandering Texas in The Political Process.

2028


VP Huma Abedin, who was Clinton's running mate in 2024, ran for President. The Democrats improved in some states through mid-decade redistricting and fell short in a few marginal seats. Abedin lost the NPV by 7%. Republicans have held onto the majority in the Senate from 2018 through 2028. Democrats hope to gain the Senate again to pass unicameralism or a proportional Senate if they are able to win a trifecta in 2030.

2032

The House was marginally increased in size in 2030. President Abedin ran for a second term and fell a bit short of her 2028 numbers but she managed to win the popular vote 41%-35%-23%. The Abedin camp felt secure at the start of the election.

Sanders ran as a center-left candidate who promised to bring change, hoping to run up his numbers with those on the anti-establishment left and among moderates. Larry Hogan ran for President as a Republican and competed with Sanders for the center column of voters. This led to Abedin winning many historic swing states. After the election, the result was widely noted as a backfiring of the Democratic-installed electoral system which secured the party the White House since 2020. This is because the electoral map likely would have secured a Democratic victory under the previous FPTP voting system, as it did in the similar 1992 election. This was also shown by the fact that the Democratic gerrymander broke apart in many but not nearly all states, giving way to many narrow Republican wins in the House, especially in Florida, and in Georgia where the Maine rule secured a majority of the state's electoral votes for the Republicans when the Democrats won the popular vote in the state.

Hogan worked tirelessly to keep conservative voters engaged while a significant number stayed home, especially in solidly conservative states. The Progressives ran candidates for the U.S. House and recruited from the Democratic Party's ranks as well. Notably, the Progressives were also lambasted by the Democrats as not living up to their name. Abedin said "the Democratic party is the only home of progressives in America."

In a stunning result, the electoral college was deadlocked although faithless elector laws prevented an outright victory for Hogan at the electoral college even with Sanders' support. Anti-Democratic victories also secured the U.S. House in a Republican-Progressive coalition. Democrats, however, remained the largest party in the House but did not have a majority alone. The new Republican majority promised new appointments to the FEC to draw fair districts for 2032.

On the second round in the U.S. House, Larry Hogan was elected President with over 30 state delegations voting for him in the contingent election thanks to Progressive cooperation without which his victory would not have been possible. Sanders was subsequently elected in the Senate, as Vice President. The new Republican-Progressive trifecta promised a national popular vote and a subsequent raising of the threshold for constitutional amendments.

Some Democrats called for machinations to keep Abedin in power which some argued was possible under the 25th Amendment. However, Abedin conceded after the contingent election since trying to hold onto power even more blatantly than was already done after 2017 would possibly lead to Civil War.

The Democratic Party subsequently collapsed in 2033 and was replaced by the new Liberal Party whose ranks were formed primarily by local politicians and those who did not have a direct hand in the Maine-ruling of the nation.

"Bush would've won if not for Ross Perot" has always struck me as obvious cope from Republicans, regardless of the many empirical problems with the claim.
Based on a poll I remembered that saw Perot's voters split 38-38 between Clinton and Bush, with 24% not voting. I kept this in mind and decided to tweak it so that, in states Clinton won by 10%, it is 67-9 Clinton, while in those he did not, it is 21-55 Bush. It evens out to 38-38 nationwide.

President George Bush (R-TX) / Vice President Dan Quayle (R-IN) - 274 EV / 46,649,040 (46.8%) PV
Goveror Bill Clinton (D-AR) / Senator Al Gore (D-TN) - 264 EV / 52,370,615 (52.5%) PV

What if the conspiracy that Ronald Reagan was working with Iran was true?

In 1980, the Election came down to three Major Candidates, President Jimmy Carter for the Democrats, Governor Ronald Reagan for the Republicans, and Congressman John Anderson as an Independent but would soon form the Reform Party.

This Election is known for many things. The most significant was the Iran Hostage Scandal. In 1979, Iran had a revolution. President Carter had admitted the former Shah to America for Cancer treatments and Iran stormed the Embassy and took 52 hostages. While Americans first rallyed around the flag for Carter, soon they got mad at him for something that wasn't even his own fault.

You see, there was a sinister subtext under all this. While the Shah had returned to Iran after the hostages were taken, they still kept the hostages. The Reason for this was that Ronald Reagan had reached out to them and made a deal. You keep the hostages until I'm President and I'll sell you weapons. And so 1980 went on with this under the radar.

As with any conspiracy, however this got out. Three Weeks before the election, a staffer within the Reagan campaign discovered the evidence and leaked it to the media. Within days, Reagans numbers plummeted as an FBI investigation looked into it. What little goodwill and Trust the Republican party may have gotten back during the Ford and Carter administrations went away overnight.

Days before the election, Reagan was arrested for Treason. While it was too late for him to be replaced on the ballot, most of his electors had already pledged that they would vote for George H. W. Bush if he were to win their states. While Bush did not know about the deal with Iran, his career was just as over as Reagans. This shifted the distrust from Watergate from the federal government onto the Republican Party.
