Uh, no... the Electoral College Calculator on this site has only three parties and I didn´t know a other way to make a map. But the single state that was won by Taft was Delaware if I recall correctly. Wink

How do you guys make maps with four candidates?


I just save the three-party file to disk and then manually color in the fourth party's states in an image editing program.

Uh, ok, but I don´t have my 1912 results anymore.




Instead I will post the map of my 1980 result I just got playing as Anderson:





Ronald Reagan
Popular Vote: 36%
Electoral Vote: 297

James Carter
Popular Vote: 35%
Electoral Vote: 183

John Anderson
Popular Vote: 25%
Electoral Vote: 58

Edward Clark
Popular Vote: 2%
Electoral Vote: 0


The effect of attack ads is just ridiculously overrated in this game. Cheesy

Ok...this was really screwed up:

John McCain/Rick Santorum v. Ed Rendell/Mark Warner '08



McCain - 525 EVs; 69% (81,017,121)
Rendell - 13 EVs; 30% (36,397,727)

No, it isn't a mistake.  I lost Arizona...as McCain...with 69% of the vote... Embarrassed

Homestates
Arizona
Rendell (D): 51.4% (1,109,597)
McCain (R): 48.5% (1,047,478)

Pennsylvania
McCain (R): 61.0% (3,181,095)
Rendell (D): 38.9% (2,030,742)

                      Bush                         Gore
Popular Vote: 63,646,046          60,858,127
Electoral Vote:  268                         270

I remember the first time I won the game.  It was on my fifteenth try against one opponent.  Dennis Kucinich was very tough to beat. . .

I had a dream last night where I played President Forever.  I was Perot in 1992 and won tons of states, even though the color used for me was blue.  Huh

Huh

They should really try to lower the power of attack ads, attack speeches, and scandals in this game... especially attack ads. And it should be much harder for a third-party candidate to get ALL endorsements. By getting all endorsements I practically multiplied my campaign budget by the factor of 32!



1980 with Clark:





Carter
Popular Vote: 40%
Electoral Vote: 269

Reagan
Popular Vote: 33%
Electoral Vote: 170

Clark
Popular Vote: 20%
Electoral Vote: 99

Anderson
Popular Vote: 6%
Electoral Vote: 0


Election was tied, Congress elected Carter

Powell/Cheney (Me): 54%
Sharpton/Edwards: 45%

I was hit with a bunch of big scandals late in the campaign.  I won Massachusetts 57.3-42.6.  This is one of the oddest maps I have ever seen.

My best state was Wymonig where I got 69.6%.  Sharpton's best was Arkansas where he got 56.5%.
