1968 US Presidential Election (VCCzar version)

1968 US Presidential Election (VCCzar version)

This election is an expanded/updated version of the 1968 election that comes with the game. The Historical Scenario Commission created it on October 15, 2017. It can be downloaded here: United States – 1968 – v. 1.0

The scenario includes the actual candidates for this historic election, as well as what-if candidates.

President Infinity 1912 Election

Note: This 1912 scenario is based on the Beta 1912 election that is part of the current game. This scenario is an improvement on the Beta. 

*This scenario was greatly updated by the Historical Scenario Commission on August 29, 2017. It can be downloaded here: United States – 1912 (VCCzar Version) v.2.0

This unusual election is composed of three major parties and one stronger minor party, all of which are Progressive on some level. The 1912 election has often been called the High Tide of the Progressive Age. William Howard Taft, the Republican incumbent, an odd mix of conservative and progressive, is seen to be less active than the people want. His disappointed mentor, former president Theodore Roosevelt, has opted to compete against his less-Progressive protege. The Democrats see an opening with the Republicans split, and see victory as nearly assured, so long as the Republicans are split. The Socialist Party sees it’s greatest support in its history.

This scenario includes What-if candidates, including former nominee William Jennings Bryan for the Democrats.

Feedback is desired.

Backstory

It is July 2019, and President Trump’s approval rating is 21%

Donald Trump’s presidency has proven to be as controversial as his 2016 campaign. While his Midwestern base is exceptionally happy, he has mostly alienated Republicans in other regions, as his scandals have made impeachment inevitable, even with a Republican majority in Congress, as Republicans try to distance themselves as completely from Trump as possible.

Meanwhile, Democrats struggle between reformist establishment figures and populist progressives leading the party.

Both parties continue to struggle with making their voters happy, while maintaining the stability and order that the establishment of both parties think is required for American supremacy.

Despite challenges from his own Republican Party, Donald Trump is still the clear front-runner; although, he’s facing impeachment and threats of eviction from his party. For Democrats, Elizabeth Warren is a narrow front-runner over Cory Booker.

*The scenario will possibly be updated until Anthony creates the official 2020 version.

1637 Massachusetts Gubernatorial Election

1637 Massachusetts Gubernatorial Election [Version 2.0]!!!

Download here: massachusetts-gubernatorial-1637 v.2

Version 2.0 is now released, which includes many events to add flavor to the campaign.

This election covers the 1637 Massachusetts election for governor, following the crucial events for that colony starting in July 1636. Major events include Anne Hutchinson’s Antinomian Controversy, the Pequot War, colonial expansion, the founding of Harvard, and much more.

Along with dozens of events, the scenario includes endorsers for every town. Endorsers include politicians, ministers and leading citizens in the town. I have listed many famous descendants of these endorsers in their descriptions.

Candidates

  • John Winthrop, the sitting deputy governor and former governor. Generally considered the leader of the Massachusetts Bay Colony by historians. In 1636, he find himself slightly out of favor, playing second-fiddle to a young nobleman recently from the home country.
  • Sir Henry Vane, the incumbent governor has shown his youth and inexperience while in office. Citizens are finding him to be all-too-liberal for this Puritan “utopia.”
  • Thomas Dudley, generally the second most important man in the colony, behind Winthrop. He has consistently been the political rival of Winthrop, but his popularity is at an all-time-low.
  • John Endicott, currently in disfavor for being too radical, even for Puritans. Endicott arrived in Massachusetts before Winthrop, Dudley and Vane, but has been unable to keep a grip on power, except in his home town of Salem.
  • Several what-if candidates are included such as future governors and other major figures, such as Simon Bradstreet, John Leverett, John Winthrop the Younger, Simon Willard and others.
  • I include a Simulation Party for anyone wishing to watch an election.

1964 Presidential Election

1964 Election

 

*This scenario was greatly updated by the Historical Scenario Commission on October 14, 2017: United States – 1964 v.2.0

For the Democrats, LBJ is the clear frontrunner, but faces a challenge from George Wallace, a conservative Southern Democrat. Additionally, a few favorite son candidates hope to hold their state’s delegates. What-ifs include John F. Kennedy, Hubert Humphrey, and Eugene McCarthy. Robert F. Kennedy is a VP option.

For the Republicans, the party sees two stronger challengers for the office: Conservative Barry Goldwater and moderate Nelson Rockefeller. Several other Republicans have an outside chance at taking the nomination from these two. What-if candidates include Richard Nixon.

Comments will be helpful in improving this scenario.

United States 1960 Election

The United States 1960 Election

*This scenario has been greatly updated by the Historical Scenario Commission on Oct 14, 2017: United States – 1960 v.2

This campaign is as complete as the 1788-1956 scenarios, which means it will be update with further improvements, most specifically events, in the future. There are likely small errors that I missed in this inaugural version.

This election follows the relatively peaceful and prosperous presidency of Dwight D. Eisenhower, viewed by some as a rare progressive conservative.

Pres. Eisenhower reluctantly supports his VP, Richard Nixon, for his party’s nomination. However, the conservative Nixon has a challenger from the liberal Republican, Nelson Rockefeller, who give his wing of the party his name. Several minor candidates and a few what-if candidates are included.

The Democrats hope to take back the White House with four major candidates: Catholic Massachusetts Senator John F. Kennedy, the New Deal-ing Texan Lyndon B. Johnson, two-time nominee Adlai Stevenson, and the liberal nominee Hubert Humphrey. Several minor candidates and a few what-if candidates are included.

A 3rd party of unpledged Democrats is included in the game.

Please report any inaccuracies, errors, and constructive criticism. Thanks.

2016 Election – Trump/Carson 3rd Party

Untitled

What if Trump and Carson do leave the Republican Party, taking half of their supporters with them? Does America slowly devolve into a one major party state?

Republicans nominate a moderate conservative, rather than resigning the party to radical members. The establishment has three months to convince Trump supporters to unite in order to prevent a Democratic 3rd term and avert the worst Republican defeat since LBJ crushed Goldwater in 1964.

The Democrats appear to have an easy victory, facing a split Republican Party. Can Clinton coast to a mandate or will she under perform due to a perceived easy win?

The Independent Party under Trump are composed of a hodge-podge of unhappy Republicans, independent conservatives and people that vote only for celebrities that they’ve heard of. They are tired of the establishment Republicans, and seem bent on dragging their former party down, rather than working with moderates to prevent Hillary Clinton from winning.

Could this election be the last of the Republican Party? Could it result in a new major party, several major parties, or leave one major party to dominate the country for elections to come?
