This is an alternate version of VCCzar’s 1896 Scenario, I’ve adjusted regional issue centers to make certain regions friendlier to certain candidates. For example, I made the South and West, more friendly to Pro-Silver, and Anti-Tariff candidates, and made New England more friendly to Pro-Gold, Protectionist candidates, to prevent situations like McKinley winning Alabama, and Bryan winning Vermont.
I’ve added The National Party, the Socialist Labor Party, and a default off Populist party.
What if the populist party nominated it’s own candidate for president rather than co-nominating Bryan? What if Silver Republican Senator, Henry Teller ran for President? What if Eugene Debs ran an election early? All these question and more, can be answered with this scenario.

I fixed Seymour F. Norton’s attributes and platform from when I copied him over from William Jennings Bryan, I also added Virginian Senator, John W. Daniel, a noted supporter of the “Lost Cause of the Confederacy” myth, who historically declined to be nominated. I changed how many PIPs each candidate has,and finally, I added a “God Meddler” ‘candidate’ in the Simulation ‘party’, for if you want to influence the election.
