2016 – United States presidential election in New England (Beta version)

Further to my 2016 Presidential Election in New Hampshire scenario, I decided to expand it to New England as a whole because the 10 counties in NH alone were too few to accurately handle the primaries.

This scenario allows you to battle 2016 in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont with state specific endorsers and accurate polling data for the GOP and Dem primaries (1 delegate per vote cast with 0% cut-off).

2016 – United States presidential election in South Carolina

As taken from Wikipedia: The Republican party’s ticket has carried South Carolina in every election since 1980, and with the exception of Jimmy Carter and Walter Mondale’s carrying the state in 1976, the Republicans have carried the state since 1964. In the 2012 election, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan defeated Democrats Barack Obama and Joe Biden by a margin of 54% to 44%. The state has not had a Democratic Senator since Ernest Hollings retired in 2005. The state has had a Republican majority in the United States House of Representatives since the so-called “Republican Revolution” of 1994. However, some have suggested that South Carolina may become a battleground state in this election cycle because of Clinton’s lead in the national polling. A poll released on August 10 by Public Policy Polling had Trump leading Clinton by a margin of only 2 points, and an internal poll commissioned for the South Carolina Democratic Party had the race tied. This led Larry Sabato’s political prediction website Sabato’s Crystal Ball to move the rating of the South Carolina contest from “Safe Republican” to “Likely Republican” on August 18.

Here you have an opportunity to battle 2016 out in South Carolina;

Primaries – For the GOP, Dems use the official vote tallies for each county as delegates and turnout with a 0% threshold which provides a popular vote type system. Libertarian and Green (Delegate numbers are 50 per county as I couldn’t find specific data for the Greens/Libertarians in SC.)

Endorsers – The Governor, Sec. State, Senators and Representatives have been added to the default endorsers. (I removed Governors, Senators from other states to reduce overall numbers.) .

Counties – Counties have accurate populations, flags (where I can find them). Issue centres are the default SC positions for those counties that voted the same as the state overall while DEM counties have been allied to the DEM platform.

2008 – London Mayor – beta version

I have decided to make a port of the 2008 – London Mayoral Election from P4E into PI. The original issues and candidates from Zion’s original scenario have been kept while I made my own map and adjusted polling/turnout to reflect the official result.

Primaries work best when each party has a number of candidates active.

Please remove if this is a copyright strike against an old scenario.

2008 – London Mayor (17/04/18 update)

  • Campaign funding updated (General election candidates start with £420k, Primaries £0 – but there is enough time to fundraise)
  • Fundraising coefficient is set at 5 (less money raised but still a significant amount)
  • Newspaper endorsers open at the start of March (longer time to win the endorser)
  • Primaries – Party nominees are more like to win the primary and have more committed supporters.
  • Two round features/or workarounds haven’t been implemented yet. I am waiting for two-round to be officially added. At the moment for those wanting a Ken v. Boris only match up, I recommend starting in the general and disabling all other candidates bar Labour and Conservative.

Enjoy

1994 – House of Representatives (V.2)

1994 saw the Republicans gain control of the House for the first time since 1952. You now have the chance to change history or inflict a worse defeat for the Democrats. This has been built with the issues ported from vcczar’s 1996 Presidential election scenario

Whats included;

  • Republican, Democrat and Libertarian candidates, the top performing ‘Independent’ in each seat. Green Party, US Taxpayer’s Party, Right to Life, Natural Law, Peace and Freedom and NY Conservative.
  • Official result as starting polls
  • Candidate strengths (4 for speaker/chief whip, 3 for incumbents, 2 for main challengers, 1 for other minor challengers)
  • Issues ported from vcczar’s 1996 Presidential election scenario
  • Surrogates
  • State Turnout Rates

UK 1964 (Modded maps)

I have done a quick mod of this scenario to edit the map to have the default background

1964 – United Kingdom – Map mod

There is now a second version which uses the default map and regions

1964 – United Kingdom (Default map)

I’ve done an update to this 1964 scenario adding Hugh Gaitskill (LAB), Rab Butler (CON) and Jeremy Thorpe (LIB).

I had to leave Jeremy Thorpe’s platform to the default Liberal party as I haven’t been able to find definite policy positions for 1964.

2016 – United States presidential election in New Hampshire – Beta version

The State of New Hampshire provided one of the closest races in the 2016 election with Hillary Clinton narrowly defeating Donald Trump. The results in Pennsylvania and Michigan meant that New Hampshire wasn’t as pivotal as it could have been.

Here you have an opportunity to battle 2016 out in New Hampshire;

Beta version – New Features;

Primaries for the GOP, Dems, Libertarian and Green (Delegate numbers are x10 from real life so the numbers provide more competition across the 10 counties, (GOP = 230 rather than only 23 across 10 counties.)

Endorsers – Newspaper interviewers added as endorsers. For those papers who endorsed candidates in more than one party these have been set as ‘Centre’. GOP or DEM only are set respectively as centre-right or centre-left. The Governor, Senators and Representatives have been added also.

The GOP seem overpowered when starting from the Primaries (I think is has something to do with the number of candidates in each primary, 8 GOP vs 2 DEM). For better results enabling more Democrats is a good idea. In order to counter the GOP bias issue, I have made all counties adhere to the default 2016 scenario for NH.

Feel free to suggest improvements and ways to counter the overpowered GOP.

2016 – UK European Union membership referendum (Beta)

The United Kingdom is voting in a historic referendum to decide whether they want to Leave or Remain in the European Union. With the vote on a knife-edge and no real data to predict the winner, everything is up for grabs.

The HQs of ‘Vote Leave’ and ‘Britain Stronger In’ are the main candidates but David Cameron is available as alternate ‘Remain’ leader, while Boris Johnson is the alternate ‘Leave’ leader.

If you fancy having a go with Nigel Farage and the Grassroots Out, they are available but start with 0% as they were not on the ballot and there is no polling data for them.

Polling data is taken from the Electoral Commission who are selectable as an observer.

All feedback is welcome 🙂

2017 UK Election (adjusted polling)

I have done a few modifications to the percentages shift to make the official scenario closer to the real result (starting with only a small majority which the Conservatives can lose if they don’t campaign effectively.)

Changed are Corbyn’s charisma from 2 to 3 given his big rallies and I’ve added three new events.

1. Conservative social care plans unveiled – gives -2 momentum to the Conservatives

2. U-turn on the social care plans, gives -2 momentum to the Conservatives

3. Theresa May refuses to debate after Corbyn announces he will attend, gives -2 momentum to the Conservatives.
