2020 Presidential Election

2020 Presidential Election [VCCzar version]

[This election was updated by the Historical Scenario Commission on Nov 29, 2017. It was updated again on February 4, 2018, and it can be downloaded here: United States – 2020-Feb4th2018

Backstory

It is July 2019, and President Trump’s approval rating has never been above 40% in the average poll.

Donald Trump’s presidency has proven to be as controversial as his 2016 campaign. While his Midwestern base is exceptionally happy, he has alienated many Republicans, mostly with his unique presidential style, but also with his connection to scandalous figures from the Russian probe and some of his policies. Republicans are mostly against impeaching Trump.

Meanwhile, Democrats struggle between reformist establishment figures and populist progressives leading the party, but they have managed to narrowly retake the Senate and the House. As such, impeachment seems likely as more evidence comes in from the Russia probe.

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.

Libertarian Revolution 2020 – The Trump Incumbency

Update: As suggested, I have added the “Blue Dog” party, headlined by moving Governor John Hickenlooper (D-CO) over.  The party also includes Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Jim Webb (D-VA).  Also for fun, I’ve added Independent candidate Mark Cuban.  Comments welcome as always.

This is a spin-off of my 2020 Libertarian Revolution campaign.  I’ve continued with that theme, but updated it to reflect Trump’s election.  It’s 2020 and Donald Trump is running for election, but the Republican Party has split.  There are two smaller parties in addition to Trump’s “Populist Republican.”
The “Constitutional Conservative Republican” party, led by Ted Cruz, represents those who are upset about Trump’s lack of Constitutional Conservative values, especially on trade and tariffs.

The “RINO Republican” Party represents the “establishment” Republicans such as Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan who have resisted the Washington shake-up that Trump has started.

Meanwhile the Democrats continue to swing left, but some moderates like John Hickenlooper may try to reclaim the party from its far-left movement.

Of course the Libertarian Party, though not putting up stellar numbers in 2016, has gained momentum.  The 2016 runner-up, 39-year-old Austin Petersen headlines a talented group of candidates along with “former” Republican Rand Paul.


One other thing that I did was do the Issues almost completely from scratch.  I felt that the original game, and many 2016 scenarios that I downloaded had way too many issues, as many as 50+ with many overlapping.  I think that like most things, less is more when it comes to issues and candidates so I kept both at small numbers.  The issues have been modeled after the website ontheissues.org, which also makes it easier to evaluate candidates’ positions on those issues.  So I have re-done all issue positions one by one for each candidate.

So I hope you like it.  Disagree with the candidates or parties?  Have a suggestion?  Someone missing?  Please comment.  Thanks for downloading!

UPDATES
  • Mark Cuban and Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson as Independent candidates.
  • Added John Bel Edwards, Caroline Kennedy, Jason Kander for Democrats
  • Added John Galt (from “Atlas Shrugged”) as a Libertarian candidate.
  • Added John Kasich as primary challenger for Donald Trump
  • Added Justin Amash to Conservative Party

United States-2020 (v 2.0)

United States – 2020 (V 2.0)

After winning the 2016 in an upset, Trump faces some challenges from within the party and from outside of the party. The Democratic side is wide open after they experienced gains in Governorships and a wave that flipped the House despite losing seats in the Senate in 2018.

 

Version 2.0 (12/23/2018)

This is the first update I have posted in a long time.  This update is comprehensive.  I changed quite a few %’s and changed all endorsers to match the actual 116th Congress and new set of Governors. I have also shifted some candidates from off->on and on->off.  Democratic candidates that have now been added are Beto O’Rourke, Richard Ojeda, Jay Inslee, Sherrod Brown & Michael Bloomberg.  It’s still pretty rough around the edges, but it’s something.

Ultimate American Empire 2020

 

rsz_2020

*Note this ignores the recent 2016 elections*

     The political climate of Obama’s presidency has caused a separatist movement of mostly Tea Party supporters to field their own candidates and have their own primaries. This along with Sen. Rand Paul joining the Libertarian party led to the loss of the Republican nominee Fmr. Gov. Sarah Palin in 2016 to Fmr. Sec. of State Hillary Clinton. A new party has recently captured the hearts of voters in the south, especially in Texas, known as the American Party. They have elected two Senators, One Governor, and a couple dozen Representatives since 2016.

     Now is the 2020 Election and Pres. Clinton is facing a tough field, she’s being challenged by members in her own party including one of her cabinet members, while the Republicans have done a good job recruiting some heavyweights to run. The Tea Party has  a pretty lackluster slot of candidates, but they do have the 2016 Republican nominee Sarah Palin. The Libertarians have Sen. Rand Paul once again, while the Green party is contested with Jill Stein being challenged by a strong contender. The American Party is running their first Presidential campaign. Clinton is getting help from pushing the passage of the 28th Amendment and the statehood of Guam and Puerto Rico. Will Pres Clinton win reelection, or lose to the Republicans, the Tea Party, or the Americans?

2020- President Trump (v1.1, 12/07/2016)

President Trump:

 

Donald Trump shocked many with his 2016 Election victory, the 2020 Election looks to be even crazier. Donald Trump started off his presidency off with a bang, he’s built the wall and we’re back in Iraq. Will Trump run for re-election? Will he win again in a Reaganesque manner, or be humiliated by a Democratic Challenger?

The Republican party base loves the President, most of the GOP senators and representatives have been forced to embrace Trump. They gave Trump 100,000 troops in Iraq, a fairly moderate agenda, and unemployment is at 5.1%. Will “the Donald” run again? Can the Democratic party nominate a winning candidate?

2020 – The Libertarian Revolution 3.0

petersen_in_2020

UPDATE 11/9/16 So I’m not sure what I’ll wind up doing with this campaign.  Last night was, for me, a pleasant surprise.  I’m leaning at the moment with leaving the way it is, after all it is a fantasy scenario, and we have fictional Confederacy campaigns here, for Pete’s sake.  Alternatively, I would re-do the campaign with Trump as the incumbent, remove the Alt-Right party, the GOP becomes the “New Republican Party”, separate from the “Conservative Party” and the Establishment party with Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and their ilk.  Let me think on this for a few days.

 

Hi all!  This is my first published campaign.  I’ve seen all the campaigns for the present and past, but I was playing around with some scenarios and decided what the heck, let’s take a gaze into the crystal ball.  If Hillary Clinton got elected, we would, in my opinion be in for a very rough ride.  It’s times like those that Americans finally take notice and reject Progressivism, much like they did when 1920 brought in conservative president Warren Harding, along with Prohibition (ok so it wasn’t all good).  Please give me your feedback, I’ll be revising and making updates based on suggestions.  It’s my first published campaign ever so please be nice 🙂


Despite Gary Johnson’s loss in 2016, a strong showing in the popular vote has led to a nationwide rise in the Libertarian movement.  Many conservatives and former Republicans are now flocking to the Libertarian cause.

Hillary Clinton has had a disastrous four years and now more than ever Americans have woken up and demanded change.

There is now about a 20% nationwide following for the Libertarian Party.

Addition of the following Libertarain candidates to 2016 runner up Austin Petersen:
Congressman Dr. Rand Paul
Former Governor Mitt Romney
Actor and Comedians Drew Carey & Penn Jilette
News host Alex Jones

However the Bernie movement will not die quietly either.  There are equal calls from the left to bring down the Clinton machine too.  The former Green Party and Socialist movement have combined to form the new Globalist Party.  Bernie Sanders and Jill Stein are among the foremost candidates for this party that advocates sweeping global change, a new world order, and a global borderless society.

Among all this, the GOP is desperately trying to re-invent itself and becoming a true Constitutional Conservative party.  Texas’s own Ted Cruz and Greg Abbott are front-runners, but conservatives like Tom Cotton, Ben Sasse, and even Trey Gowdy are throwing their hats in too, as many moderate or socially-liberal Republicans have fled to the Democrat or Libertarian parties.

The issues of “Social Justice” and “Government Accountability” have been added.

UPDATE 9-18-2016

  • Modified polls & fixed error where Libertarian poll was not taking effect.
  • Added Breitbart News & Glenn Beck as interviewers.
  • New candidates:
    • GOP: Joe Walsh, Bob Corker, Chris Christie, Trey Gowdy
    • Libertarian: Adam Kokesh
  • New issues: Jobs, States Rights, Marijuana

UPDATE 10-20-2016

  • Republican party has spun off the Populist Nationalist (Trump, Christie, Sessions) and the Constitutional Conservative Parties (Cruz, Lee, Pence, Abbot, Sasse, Gowdy).  Moved
  • Democrat Party has spun off Globalist (Sanders, Stein) Party
