Every 5 days or so, in the What-if board, I make a poll about past presidential elections.  It would start with 2004 and work backwards.

For example, I'd make a 1976 thread, and people would answer who they'd have voted for and discuss the election.

Unless somebody objects, I'm going to do this starting tomorrow, with 2004.

Maybe you could do it in U.S. General, where it would get more responses. After all, these aren't really "What If"s.

That might be a decent idea.  I'll do that starting with 2000.
