Even after allegations broke our Jones was still behind by 5% in the polls



But when election night came around

First ever time I got a 269-269 tie, I played as Kerry/Richardson:

United States presidential election, 2004


President George W. Bush (R-TX) / Vice President Dick Cheney (R-WY) - 269 EV, 49.7% (61.1 million votes)
Senator John F. Kerry (D-MA) / Governor Bill Richardson (D-NM) - 269 EV, 48.2% (59.2 million votes)
Activist Ralph Nader (I-CT) / Activist Peter Camejo (I-CA) - 0 EV, 2.1% (2.6 million votes)

Closest states were Nevada (Kerry won by 1,010 votes), Florida (Bush won by 40,000 votes) and Ohio (Bush won by 30,000 votes).

I had initially put most campaign resources into Virginia, Florida, Colorado, Nevada and Arizona (trying to bring about the Obama coalition four-years early).  Bush led consistently in AZ and VA going into the end of September, so I shifted those resources to the more traditionally competitive states of Iowa and Ohio.  Almost pulled it off, but he House elected Bush the winner.

Lost narrowly with Warren in a brokered convention against Klobuchar Sad when i was Warren

Now playing as Klobuchar against Trump. Trump has a lead of +3 in the PV and the EV projected vote is 283-235, so will have a lot of work to do. Losing Florida currently by 20 (LOL). TITANIUM R.

Closest states:
WI - 0
NM +1
PA -1
MI +1
NH -2
ME -4
CO +5
NV +5
NJ +7
DE +7
OH -8
MN -9

LOL Klobuchar - Gabbard lost against Trump - Haley. My game crashes, but I was losing. Especially FL, IA and OH were out of reach from the beginning (now almost -26 in IA behind) and the rust belt states were tilt / lean R. Pff, what a hard game. VA, NV and CO looked like they were in the pocket.

I was going to post the map and numbers, but I accidently closed out of the game before I could finish.

Anyway, did 1972 as Nixon, and other than selecting Agnew as VP, did absolutely nothing. The Democratic primaries were just Humphrey, Muskie, McGovern, and Wallace. Humphrey easily defeated the other three and chose Walter Fauntroy as his running mate.

Come Election Day, I thought I might win despite doing nothing. I lost 285-253, but won the popular vote 53-47. I have no idea how that happened.

My absolutely abysmal run as Lyndon Johnson in 1968. It's my first time playing, so I am still learning.



Richard Nixon/Spiro Agnew (R)- 44.5%, 346 EVs
Lyndon Johnson/Robert F. Kennedy (D)- 41.7%, 147 EVs
George Wallace/Curtis Lemay (AI)- 13.8%, 45 EVs


Five Closest States

Texas: .2%
Washington: .2%
Arkansas: .3%
Pennsylvania: .6%
Maryland: 1.6%

I basically lost hope of winning when Carl Albert and Carl Vinson endorsed Nixon and I released how poorly I had managed things.

The new Beta version is finally starting to let me finish from start to end (when beginning in primaries). Got through this time with Trump in 2020 - the beta version becomes very unrealistically easy if you start in a primary basically unchallenged. I focused early on meddling and dividing the Democrats to force a contested convention - it was a three way race between Mayor Pete, Beto and Warren. In the GE, Trump train's spinning became almost unstoppable in the final weeks, as well as half a billion warchest built up. The initial goal was to see if I could win DC as a Republican - it was the closest, with TRUMP winning 52-44.


President Donald Trump/Vice President Mike Pence: 63.5% PV, 538 EV
Mayor Pete Buttigieg/Former Georgia Speaker Stacey Abrams: 34%, 0 EV
Ian Schlakman/His VP: 2.5% PV

Gonna try the same thing with Biden next, though it will be harder since it will be tough to divide the GOP primary like you can for Democrats.

I was actually able to bring TRUMP down quite a bit playing as Biden, I had Romney, Kasich and Cruz run against him in the primary and Romney and Kasich both won quite a few states. TRUMP ultimately prevailed but his warchest was depleted. I started out the GE with an 11 point lead that gradually grew. Absolutely slammed him in the final week with ads and surrogate campaigning, I had been building up a warchest of surrogates from the getgo. Wasn't able to get the 538 sadly, South Carolina was the weird holdout. I think it was an effect of a very competitive primary happening there, so TRUMP was very organized from the start. Up until the last couple days, a lot of states were tossups - at one point there were 20 states within 4 points, it was much more difficult to go for the sweep with Biden. The margins and coloring would have been more fun with a third party but I forgot to checkmark it.


Former VP Joe Biden/Senator Kamala Harris: 61.2%, 529 EV
President Donald Trump/Vice President Mike Pence: 38.8% PV, 9 EV

Won 2004 as Kerry while losing the popular vote.



Won Ohio, and thus the election, by literally 1 vote according to the game. Not the first time I've won or lost a state by exactly 1 vote; I imagine that the game just does a coin flip if the results are too close and gives the state to the winner by 1 vote. Still, if anything even close to that happened in reality, it would have course been reverse 2000 -- this time the Democrat won the electoral college thanks to an extremely slim margin in one large state while losing the popular vote. And this time I'm sure the GOP would be calling for recounts. Would be quite ironic if the Supreme Court shut them down citing their own precedent from Bush v. Gore. Also might have led to the end of the Electoral College.

I also held Iowa and New Mexico, unlike the real Kerry, while stlil flipping New Hampshire and losing the PV by less, so a significantly better performance overall. I even only lost Florida by like 0.4 points instead of the 5 the real Kerry lost. I chose Hillary as my running mate; I had her campaign in Arkansas and Missouri quite a bit, but still narrowly lost those states.

I don't usually like playing the primaries for this reason; the game becomes way too easy way too fast. Especially if you are effectively unchallenged or are able to wrap up the nomination early while the other party's primaries are still going. Then you can spend all your time and resources preparing for the general and blasting the likely nominee of the other side while they still have to defend themselves from their primary challengers. I played as Clinton in a 1996 scenario once starting with the primaries, but never ended up finishing it because by the time the primaries were over, I had a huge lead over Dole in all 50 states and it was just boring.
