2020 US Election – Clinton Refrendum (Hillary wins 2016)

Compatible with 3.1.1

This is an alternate-history campaign.

Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in a closer-than-expected race, in 2016. The race came down to razor-thin margins in Pennsylvania and Michigan. Following their defeat, many Republicans attempted a purge of “Trumpism”. Clinton’s presidency has been marked by partisan divide, and disillusionment with politics. The Democratic Party faced record breaking defeats in the 2018-midterms, with the Republican gain the House being stronger then their performance even in 2010. Purportedly, Clinton started her re-election campaign before the 2018-midterms, and has prepared for a long, and tough battle. Many Republicans have clamored at the prospects of defeating Clinton, but the field is wide and divided – Can Clinton defeat the divided Republican Party or will they find a candidate who can defeat her?

1988+ – United States – After Reagan

Compatible with 3.1.1

*Note: This version of the 1988 campaign is substantially updated. Changes include adding unique flavor, via actual events for each candidate in the general/primary election, new HD portraits, new issues, adding missing/alt-history candidates, and adding a full, working and accurate primary on both sides, with the correct turnout for each primary/caucus.

The 1988 campaign featured an open contest on both the Republican and Democratic sides, as Republican Pres. Ronald Reagan was entering the last year of his second term. Numerous contenders on the Democratic side entered the race. Commentators referred derisively to them as “The Seven Dwarfs.” They included former Arizona Gov. Bruce Babbitt, Delaware Sen. Joe Biden, Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis, Missouri Rep. Richard Gephardt, Tennessee Sen. Al Gore, civil rights leader Jesse Jackson, Illinois Sen. Paul Simon and the disgraced, “Eight Dwarf” former frontrunner, former senator Gary Hart of Colorado, who dropped out because of a sex scandal, reentered the race and then entered electoral obscurity. Two candidates who were somewhat more inspiring had decided not to run: Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy; and New York Gov. Mario Cuomo, who simply declined to run. The Republicans, seeking a candidate who could match the stature and electability of Reagan, were similarly at a loss. The nominal front-runner, George Bush, suffered from a reputation as a “wimp” who in 22 years of public life—as a former representative, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, director of the Central Intelligence Agency, and, for more than seven years, Reagan’s vice president—had failed to distinguish himself as anything more than a docile instrument of someone else’s policy. There were three interesting Republican alternatives: Bob Dole of Kansas, the Senate minority leader, who was respected for his wit and intelligence though considered by some to be overly acerbic; former New York representative Jack Kemp, revered among many conservatives as Reagan’s true ideological heir; and the Rev. Pat Robertson, a popular televangelist. None of the three, however, made it through the primary season. With the Reagan era drawing to a close, the wide open race has top names both sides of the political spectrum running for the top job. Liberal and Conservative Reverends, Hawks and Doves in both parties, which way will America turn?

2014 – Ontario

The 2014 Ontario general election is to be held on June 12, 2014, to elect the members of the 41st Parliament of Ontario. The Liberal Party hopes to move from a minority to majority government. This would be the Liberals’ fourth consecutive win since 2003 and an improvement from their performance in the 2011 election. The Progressive Conservatives and NDP will be hoping to change this. The election was called on May 2, 2014, by Lieutenant Governor David Onley, upon the recommendation of Wynne following the announcement that the NDP, whose support was critical to the survival of the Liberal’s minority government in the Legislative Assembly, would vote against the Liberals’ proposed budget.

2021 – Canada

The 2019 Canadian federal election resulted in the Liberals, led by incumbent Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, losing both their parliamentary majority and the popular vote but nevertheless winning the most seats and remaining in office as a minority government. On August 15, 2021, after a request from Prime Minister Trudeau, the governor general dissolved parliament and called an election for September 20. Trudeau’s Liberals are enjoying a poll lead but what will happen during the campaign?

I can’t think of anything else to add at the moment so for now the beta has become the full version.

2020 US Election – Rubio Referendum (Rubio wins 2016)

*Inspired by “Conservative Elector 2″‘s “USA – 2020 (President Rubio)” mod*

Compatible with 3.1.1

This is an alternate-history campaign.

Republican, and then Senator from Florida, Marco Rubio won in 2016, in a contested and tight election against Hillary Clinton. Both Rubio and Clinton faced divisive primaries, with Donald Trump, and Bernie Sanders respectively representing the growing populist agenda of the American electorate. The Democratic Party has seemingly broken out into civil war, not seen since 1968. Many Sanders supporters see the Democratic Primaries in 2016 as plainly unfair, and resentment has been rising. Can Sanders himself win the Democratic Party, or will the moderate wing of the party, weakened by the retirement of Biden following a series of strokes, be able to defeat him? – Regardless, Rubio has been a popular President with his base, as well as being the youngest Republican President since Teddy Roosevelt. Rubio will be well positioned for a re-match, but growing divisiveness, and the surge of Covid-19 will make for a tight, and intense election.
