Kucinich/Dean vs. Bush/Cheney again:





Kucinich
PV: 53%
EV: 397

Bush
PV: 41%
EV: 141
That just about explains why I wouldn't waste the money to buy this game.

Hmm.  While this is very interesting, Colin, I doubt this is very realistic.  I don't think this game has any real concept of multi-dimensional issue dynamics, and it just calculates the left-to-ring average from the sum of each issue, instead of treating each issue seperately.  I'm very confused to why I repeatedly win Oklahoma, some of the great plains states, and even Arizona and New Hampshire at times, while I lose Louisiana, Missouri, Kentucky, Mississippi quite often.  I would also say I should win Arkansas and West Virginia every time if I win any states at all.  It makes me think the game is just treating me as a generic centrist independent, considering my economic positions and social positions would just about cancel out, making me barely left of the center.

Arkansas probably would have been much higher for Debs.  It had a very strong progressive labor wing of the Democratic Party that, if Debs had been that popular nation-wide, could have gone for him.

Joe Libertarian (R-NH)/Cheney 296 EV 47%
Dan Populist (D-WV)/Gephardt 242 EV 47% (won PV by 500,000)

I played as Nader and did nothing all campaign.  Both candidates were extreme on every issue.  I'm not sure how the Libertarian won AR by 17 points though
This map pretty much proves PresidentForever is worthless beyond one dimensional left-right politics.
