I majorly used Iran, Iraq, Health Care, Experience and Homeland Security.

Sorry, what were your views on each issue?  Your entire platform?

Tried out Rocky's new scenario:

Warner/Bayh: 58% PV, 476 EV
McCain/Palin: 42% PV, 62 EV

Closest state was South Dakota, decided by 2,059 votes.

I have no idea.  I spent a couple turns in AK, but totally ignored HI and WV.

The state barely went to Kennedy; you expect it to go to Humphrey?

He doesn't.  He loses VA, AL, and MS.  He barely won in TN, LA and AR, and it was very close in SC.

But still this is Hubert Humphrey we are talking about Ben. His stance on Civil Rights would have alienated potential supporters of his in the South, thus resulting in the South to overwhelmingly vote for Harry Byrd. That's what I think anyways.

In RL that'd be true, but not in P4E+P, where I gave Byrd the actual numbers from 1960; leaving him viable in only AL, MS, LA, and AR.  Maybe I'll boost his numbers somewhat in the South.

     I would. It's unrealistic that Byrd would do that badly in places like GA & NC with Humphrey as the nominee.

I was thinking I'm put him everywhere Thurmond appeared on the ballot, with Thurmond's numbers, but make him a lot stronger in Virginia.

     Are you going to bother putting him on the ballot in CA & ND? Tongue

No Tongue  Although I haven't decided on the percentages.

I assume you used the infamous 'ad cheat' which is used by all who play President Forever, thus the large victory for Jennings Bryan in 1896? Anywho, Ben what was the margin in Kentucky? Although I'm not surprised that McKinley lost in a landslide, I'm surprised that of all states he carried Kentucky was one of them.

Kentucky was very close; 42.7-42.6.  It had been a toss-up going into election night, and I never went there.

Was this on the original PF for the one with the primaries? Texas was 80% and SC was 98% for Roosevelt on the PF+P which I played on.

Original.  I didn't know they had one for 1932; can you give a link?

It's in the forum on 80soft.com

The one for the original had Hoover and FSR tied when you first start off. In the PF+P game, FDR leads 46-28 nationally when you first start off. The south never moves as FDR still broke 90% in SC, TX, AZ, MS, and AL even though he lost the race. That's why I was so happy I came back and beat him.

For some reason I can't get it; can you e-mail it to me?

I've decided to go back and simulate every election since 1960, playing as the weakest candidate.

Nixon: 49% PV, 275 EV
Kennedy: 47% PV, 262 EV
Faubus: 2% PV, 0 EV

1964:

Johnson: 60% PV, 448 EV
Goldwater: 40% PV, 90 EV

1968:

Humphrey: 45% PV, 338 EV
Nixon: 36% PV, 100 EV
Wallace: 17% PV, 100 EV
