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.

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.

WILL NO LONGER BE UPDATED

The 2016 election is by far one of the most controversial and frequently talked about races in the history of politics. With two controversial candidates taking the state, many voters have found themselves alienated by the two major parties and have taken it up to themselves to flock to many minor parties, like the Libertarians, Greens, and even the Constitutionalists, McMullin, and La Fuente.

Will Clinton pull off a landslide? Can Trump defy all odds and win the Presidency? Can Gary Johnson find a way into the debates? 

The next President will have to deal with ISIS, taxes, the economy, the Supreme Court, and more, and the fate of the nation lies in your hands…

With the most accurate polling of any 2016 scenario, you will have to campaign effectively and manage your time wisely to win over the crucial swing states. Can you pull off a Clinton landslide? Can a Republican take back the White House? Can McMullin win Utah? Can Johnson break 5%?

“I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email.” – Hillary R. Clinton

election-2016-issues

With new issues like, “Hillary’s Emails”, “Marijuana”, and the “Gender Gap” to stir things up, the election season is sure to be full of mudslinging and boasting as the candidates try to appease all voters. Now, voters will care about a wide variety of issues, instead of focusing on a few small ones!

“What is Aleppo?” – Gary E. Johnson

With 50+ new random and scripted events added, the voter’s perception of the issues will adamantly change during the course of the game. Did a mass shooting just occur? Chances are, many voters will flip to the left on gun control issues. Terrorist attack? Now they may want more ground troops in the Middle East. Wikileaks release some Hillary emails? Yeah, she’s going down in the polls. Trump say something racist again? Now they’re undecided again; With so many events added, the gameplay will be anything but static!

2016 All-Independents 2.0

PRIMARIES???  WE DON’T NEED NO STINKIN’ PRIMARIES!

UPDATE 11/1/16:  Ok so I know the region percentages were WAY off last time.  I’ve completely re-done those from scratch.  Methodology was difficult because of the expanded general election field, most candidates except for the current top four had some guesswork involved.  I used primaries voting to “rank” candidates within their (real-world) parties.  To avoid vote-splitting, I first expanded the lead party in a state, then divvied up the percentages.  For example if a state was 50-40 Trump over Clinton, I’d go to 60-40 and THEN “give” some of the 60 to Ted Cruz.  It’s an inexact science.  Let me know what you think.

Don’t like our choices?  Did your #1 not make the general election?  The ultimate Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio or Bernie Sanders dream scenario.  Well, what if all the candidates ran as independents?  I think it’d go something like this.

FIXES 10/23:
Some Libertarian candidates not on all ballots
Turned off polling, as it was resulting in very weird results.  Will work on the polls later.
