In honor of the upcoming release of W.5 Final Mix, decided to take the fight to ol' Chappaquiddick Teddy while invading both Afghanistan and Iraq, and managed a fairly comfortable Electoral College win. Still barely lost the popular vote though, and barely any state voted above 50% for either candidate thanks to a pair of oddly successful third parties each appealing to different demographics (John Anderson and Jesse Ventura). It's a poisoned chalice, of course - if you lose to Ted with two wars going on, apparently Bush roars back in '08 with a vengeance. God help us all - but this universe produces a better version of the movie Vice with Christian Bale so maybe it's worth it.



Bush/Frist - 324 EV - 56,718,355 PV (46.5%)
Kennedy/Barnes - 214 EV - 56,789,712 PV (46.5%)

Decided to try the 1992 Redux mod playing as Bill Clinton with Bob Graham (who passed away yesterday at the age of 87) as his running mate. I largely played it similar to real life (though Graham did get trounced by Dan Quayle in the Vice-Presidential debate).

The Clinton/Graham ticket ended up winning (California put me over the top), though in the Electoral College it was much closer than real life (Bush won Ohio {in real life, the state that put Clinton over the top} while winning Louisiana by about 2000 votes. Clinton in this scenario won Montana by 297 votes).

Results of when I tried the Gary Hart mod as Hart with Dale Bumpers as my running mate.

While Hart did a lot better than Dukakis in real life, in the end George H.W. Bush still won by a fairly comfortable margin (notably Hart carried Arkansas while narrowly losing his home state of Colorado).

Oh yeah. I think it's only on Campaign Trail Showcase, the mod is called 𝚆. The premise is that 9/11 didn't happen, and it has choose-your-own-adventure elements at least on par with the Nixon Peace With Honor mod. It's probably my favourite scenario, and they're adding a sort of Director's Cut with new questions and candidates on Sunday I believe. It's probably my favourite scenario.

I played the scenario Rubio vs Biden 2016 in the Showcase version as Marco Rubio. I won the election with 317 Electoral Votes, 49.5 % of vote and thirty states]

My result as Ted Turner in Mouths of the South. I chose John Kerry as my veep, thinking it was the safe pick. I had to do a lot of trial and error here, this mod has a lot of weird side paths you can get if you don't make the right picks. I generally picked more moderate answers and got Jane to stick around. My ending was "Gone With The Wind" which I think is good.

Despite falling under the 5% national vote share, Perot managed to finish ahead of Gingrich in Maine, getting around 30% of the vote there. He was up there, above 10% in a few Western states. Very weird.

Popular Vote Result:
Ted Turner: 50,929,771 (47.9%)
Newt Gingrich: 49,676,514 (46.7%)
Ross Perot: 5,247,781 (4.9%)
Ralph Nader: 430,024 (0.4%)

Closest States

Pennsylvania
Ted Turner: 2,428,084 (48.80%)
Newt Gingrich: 2,393,216 (48.10%)
Ross Perot: 136,719 (2.75%)

Missouri
Ted Turner: 1,137,040 (48.80%)
Newt Gingrich: 1,120,656 (48.10%)
Ross Perot: 64,909 (2.79%)

Arkansas
Ted Turner: 458,093 (48.98%)
Newt Gingrich: 450,973 (48.22%)
Ross Perot: 24,156 (2.58%)

Nevada
Newt Gingrich: 273,159 (46.85%)
Ted Turner: 268,220 (46.00%)
Ross Perot: 39,816 (6.83%)

Tennessee
Newt Gingrich: 1,052,055 (48.99%)
Ted Turner: 1,026,589 (47.81%)
Ross Perot: 61,898 (2.88%)

The election mainly came down to parts of the South and Midwest. Gingrich had an advantage in the South (though I managed to take Arkansas and Georgia), but I got past him in the Midwest other than Ohio.

Just played Biden '92. It's clever, I'd recommend going in blind.

Managed to win as Nixon in 1960 while promising to visit all 50 states/losing the debate to Kennedy  (which are two decisions that almost always go badly!)



I also won the popular vote 49.9%-49.6%

In a reversal of real life, I managed to win as Gore in 2000 while losing the popular vote to Bush.  I did this by running as a moderate-to-conservative (i.e., pro-gun, pro-coal), interventionist Democrat who openly embraced Bill Clinton.  Evan Bayh was my VP, and most of my campaign stops were in the MS River States (plus one trip each to OH/WV.)  Popular vote was 48.4% Bush, 48.3% Gore.

Decided to try out the 1992 Biden mod referenced earlier, with Biden winning a very close one

How is that 8 electoral votes for Obama.  Hawaii + DC should be 7 unless the NCT splits results by CD in Maine (and I have never noticed if it has before.)

it does, kinda. I think if you get a certain % in the state you still get 1 EV, similar thing with NE.
