Phew! This one was close...:

Bush: 36 963 395 (33%) 185 EVs
Clinton: 36 812 267 (33%) 127 EVs
Perot: 35 816 774 (33%) 226 EVs

Best states:
Bush: Georgia, 52.9%
Clinton: Arkansas, 51.7%
Perot: Wyoming 64.6%

Worse states:
Bush: Vermont, 14.1%
Clinton: Utah, 11%
Perot: Alabama, 9.2%

Closest states:
Florida, Bush-Perot-Clinton 34.4%-33.3%-32.2%
California: Perot-Clinton 37.6%-36.8%
Colorado: Clinton-Bush 36.7%-35.9%

New York, Illinois and Iowa were also very close.

If I hadn't spent all my money in the first two weeks I might have won this one. Sad Still, I'm very pleased. Smiley

My 3rd attempt with Perot...this one went badly, I chrushed Bush in the beginning but Clinton managed to capitalize on it despite being hit with several scandals.

I beat Bush in the electoral college, at least. Smiley

Oh, and Jake, the house always picks Clinton in the 1992 scenario, I think. Just like they always pick Bush in the 2004 scenario.

Almost managed to get Clinton in the end this time, but somehow the scandal on him just wouldn't stick. Sad

Bush: 29%, 143 EVs
Clinton: 38%, 244 EVs
Perot: 31%, 151 EVs

I came very close in several states, especially Alaska, Oregon, Kansas and Missouri. Clinton's win in Kansas was due to the fact that I demolished Bush there with negative campaigning (27.5% in Kansas for a Republican...ouch).

Once again, Vermont was Bush's weakest state giving him an abysmal 14.7%. In DC Bush got only 5.7%. For Clinton it was South Dakota, 16.7%. My worse was Alabama where I got 12%.

Hehe...I got bored and decided to play with dynamism on. Had forgot how easy that makes it...I had a constant of 13% until it was like 2 weeks left (I had too little support to participate in the first two debates). I then surged 8 points to 21%, won the third debate. Clinton had been hit with scandals previously and was pretty much out at this stage, Bush was the leading candidate. I got a power 9 scandal on him, another power 9 scandal came along on him. These two got spun for the rest of the campaign, lowering his momentum to about -400 with Clinton at -100 and me at about +75. In the last poll I had gained 8% and 216 EVs getting me to 31% and 256 EVs. On election day it was a blow-out. Clinton and Bush both lost about 50 EVs each from the day before the election to election day.

Perot: 44%, 370 EVs
Clinton: 29%, 107 EVs
Bush: 26%, 61 EVs

Best states:
Perot: Washington, 67.3%
Clinton: Arkansas, 64.5% (this is the only time it's not DC!)
Bush: Louisiana, 50.7%

Worse states:
Perot: Arkansas, 14.7%
Clinton: Utah, 11.1%
Bush: Massachusetts, 12.7% (DC, 4.6%)

Closest states:
Iowa: CLinton beats Perot 39%-36.8%
Virginia: Bush beats Perot 42.8%-40.6%

I'd like to have it noted that I lost DC to Clinton 41.8%-53.4%, which I consider to be very good. Smiley

Ok, who do you wanna run against what are your stats and so on?



Sooner or later I will win as Perot. Tongue

Without dynamism it's pretty hard though...PV was Clinton-Bush-Perot 34-33-32. Funny how the EV and PV were reversed; I won the EV before Bush with Clinton last, 226-194-118.

This one was darn close! Sad I got 34% of the PV and 248 EVs. Bush got 33% and 100 EVs, Clinton 31% and 190 EVs. (Clinton got Illinois, California and New York, but that was pretty much it for him.

Clinton: 20.4% (294 719)

I was 1300 votes from winning! Sad

I decided to run the Swedish PM against Bush and loaded his stats and platform as best I could. The result:

Persson/Nuder: 54% and 425 EVs
Bush/Cheney: 40% and 113 EVs
Nader/Camejo: 3%
Badnarik: 1%

I started out 41%-45% though and it got to 41%-46% before I turned it around.

I'm disappointed every time I get below 55%...I post every time I play, so my results here aren't the best of the best. If you want to win big you need to produce a lot of negative momentum for your opponent. Hold attack-speeches - they almost always make the papers (more frequently than the positive ones) and can have a good effect early on on your opponent's momentum. Never touch an issue if it isn't at least on medium, preferably on high or very high.

Josh, here's your game:

Craddock/McCain: 50%, 270 EVs

Kerry/Edwards: 48%, 268 EVs

Badnarik/Nolan (me), 0% (400 000 votes)

The state results were pretty much along the same lines as the real 2004 results. Generally though, no states were close, witht the sole exception of West Virginia which Craddock won by 631 votes, 49% and 399 815 votes v 48.9% and 399 186 votes. Badnarik got 1.9% or 15 760 votes.

I Created the leaders of the major parties in Sweden in PF and gave them the issue stands they hold in Sweden, but adjusted for American circumstances (favouring same tax rate would mean favouring low taxes in the game and so on) I was the libertarian and did nothing.



Persson/Nuder (D): 46% and 195 EVs
Reinfeldt/Olofsson (R): 52% and 343 EVs
Badnarik/Campagna (L): 1% and 0 EVs

Played Persson/Nuder v Bush/Cheney (and minor parties)



I started 150 EVs and about 3% behind. Final result:

Persson/Nuder: 398 EVs 54%
Bush/cheney: 140 EVs 40%
Nader: 2%
Badnarik: 1%

Now, the Dakotas, Kentucky and South Carolina were all very, very close, South Carolina especially, Bush won by 1000 votes - not even a tenth of a percentage point.
