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 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.

The year is 1950. Having dealt a surprise loss to Winston Churchill’s Tories following the Allied victory in World War 2, the Attlee government has set about implementing Labour’s vision of a cradle to grave welfare state at home, amidst decolonisation and the start of the Cold War abroad. Whilst they have met with a number of successes, notably the founding of the National Health Service, their five years in government have not been without economic hardship as the country has had to face post-war austerity. Meanwhile, the Tories have rebounded from their 1945 loss, and have now embraced much of the new consensus around a more active government, and the polls are remarkably tight between the two parties. Can Churchill reclaim the Premiership from Attlee, or will Labour be allowed their first ever second term?

Prime Minister Robert Muldoon has met his match in the charismatic and eloquent Labour Party leader David Lange. Bob Jones’ New Zealand Party also threatens to split the right wing vote, making a Labour victory all the more likely. Social Credit still exists as a small political force, however leader Bruce Beetham is hoping to build the party’s influence. With the nation in the midst of economic strife, will Muldoon hang on for a fourth term? Or will Lange bring ‘piggy’ down and return Labour to office? Will Jones’ New Zealand Party establish itself as the voice of the Right? Or will Beetham’s message ‘cut through’ to New Zealanders and gain support for Social Credit? Whatever the case, General Election 1984 promises to be one of the most eventful elections that New Zealand has ever had.

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.
