1896 Alternate Version.

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.

Updated on June 16th 2019.

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.

United States – 1896 Alternate V1.5

2018 – Lazio regional election

Nicola Zingaretti (Democratic Party) is the governor of Lazio. Stefano Parisi (Center-Right Coalition), Roberta Lombardi (Five Star Movement) and Sergio Pirozzi (Right Wing) are among his greatest challengers in the highest office of the region of Italy.

This is my first scenario ever so feedback and even criticism are appreciated.

2018 – Lazio

 

2016 – Race to the White House

(Based on an election game on alternatehistory.com – Account required to view)

What if top-tier candidates on both sides had decided not to run in 2016 and fictional candidates took their place? That is the premise of this scenario which is based on a President Infinity inspired election game on alternatehistory.com.

Will the progressive firebrand Angie Bennett pull off an upset to claim the Democratic nomination or will the establishment-favorites Katy Thompson and James Johnson romp to victory instead? Can the libertarian Democrat Carl Cisco Rutter use his charisma and telegenic appearance to move the party in a new direction and become the first gay president or will his campaign fail to gain steam because he bucks liberal orthodoxy on many issues? Is there any hope for the eccentric Governor of South Carolina Cornelius Benjamin Kennard to revive the party’s hopes in the South or will he simply act as a spoiler to Johnson and the liberal, black Governor of Missouri Martin Walker? Can Anderson and the Elliot Express sweep to an overwhelming victory in the Democratic primaries or is he doomed to failure?  Do any of the lesser known candidates – Lopez, Maxson, and Turner – have any chance to break out and claim the nomination for themselves? And what if Steven Prentice Hart remained in the race, can he become the Democrat’s Reagan and usher in a left-wing, populist takeover of the party?

Can the House Majority Leader and staunch cultural warrior Francisco Juarez bring together evangelical Protestants and Catholics to win the GOP nomination or will he be foiled by the bombastic conservative David McIntosh, a member of the Freedom Caucus? Will neoconservative darling and McCain ally Kathleen Fairchild be able to follow in his footsteps and be the first woman to be nominated by the Republican Party or will the popular Admiral Kelsey Gormley stop her in her tracks and be the first general nominated by a major party since Eisenhower? Can Roy Buehler carve out a place for himself as a palatable moderate conservative and outspoken advocate for right-to-work or has the GOP base soured on nominating yet another moderate? Can former SNL writer and now Rhode Island Governor Charles Schroder win over GOP voters with his brand of libertarianism or will his “coastal elitist” image doom his campaign? And what of the outsiders Coxey and Zakharov – can they ride dissatisfaction with the Washington establishment to victory in the primaries or are their unorthodox positions too much for the Republican base to tolerate? What if Kasey Sungbean ran for president instead of challenging Steven Prentice Hart for CA Senate – can centrism appeal to the modern Republican Party?

Fear, Loathing and Gumbo on the Campaign Trail ’72

Based on the AlternateHistory.com story by Drew.

John Julian McKeithen, a former governor of Louisiana, decides to stand for the Democratic nomination. He’s a more moderate figure than George McGovern and can appeal to a wider audience, and crucially also comes from a political background that has acquainted him quite as much with dirty tricks as Nixon.

Theoretically, thanks to McGovern refusing to step down and standing as a “Peace” candidate, as well as George Wallace staying in the race, no one wins the Electoral College vote. I, however, haven’t been able to get such a result. Nevertheless, I’m releasing it now and am open to suggestions for refining it.

UPDATE 2/4/19: Reinstated the Crystal Ball. I had no idea that Barry Commoner was in fact a real independent candidate in 1980! Oops!

Gumbo – 1972

2020 Presidential Election (Beta)

(Edit: Moulton and Ryan added. Poll and fundraising numbers adjusted completely – May 10th)

(EDIT: fixed some obvious bias and added Weld as GOP contender and Inslee as a Democratic contender -March 3rd)

This is an updated and tweaked version of VCCzar’s 2020 Presidential Election.All the credit for the basis of which this version is based upon goes to him.  The region polls are tweaked to fit current data and Howard Schultz is added as an Independent candidate.

Additionally, most of the news articles are removed (I don’t want to predict the future) and more candidates are added to the Libertarian Party as well as AOC being included as an endorser. Some candidates (like Zuckerberg and the Rock as well as the numerous GOP candidates) have been removed for the sake of realism and I will add and subtract candidates as the race further develops.

The Republican primary obviously favors Trump with Kasich as “undecided’.

The general election will favor democrats but is winnable for Republicans if Trump gets his game going early on

That said, Here are the highlights:

Beto O’Rourke added

Adjusted polling numbers for both primaries and general election

Howard Schultz included as an Independent (I set him as off as this is still in the early stages being that we really have no idea how well he might do)

Endorsers are up to date and stats are more reflective of current events.

Some of the positions are fixed and some of the more “biased” bios are changed.

Update: Yang added and some other polling numbers tweaked.

2020 Presidential Election Update

2010 – Alabama Gubernatorial Election

I have completed a remake of the old 2010 – Alabama Gubernatorial Election scenario from the old P4E2008 game. Polling for candidates who ran are set to the official results. The what ifs from the old scenario keep the P4E2008 polling data which seems to produce a nice blend. For some of the weaker official candidates I tried to find issue specific issue positions but where it wasn’t possible they are defaulted to the old scenario GOP platform.

There are a lot of endorsers so they best function with primaries enabled to avoid a huge momentum surge.

I couldn’t see a name of the original scenario creator but the base scenario was here http://campaigns.270soft.com/2009/05/06/alabama-gubernatorial-2010/

2010 – Alabama Gubernatorial

Alabama – 2017 (Senate special)

2017 – AL Senate

In January 2017, President Donald Trump tapped Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions to be the next United States Attorney General. Will the GOP hold on to his seat in this deeply Republican state, or will former District Attorney Doug Jones become the first Democrat to represent Alabama in the Senate in over 20 years?

Candidates include Democrat Doug Jones and Republicans Roy Moore, Luther Strange, and Mo Brooks.

I might add the GOP primary later if this generates enough interest.  Let me know what you guys think!
