The 2019 Ukrainian presidential election will be held on 31 March and if needed on the 21 April in a two-round system. There are a total of 39 candidates for the election on the ballot. The 2014 annexation of Crimea by Russia and the occupation of parts of Donetsk Oblast and Luhansk Oblast is likely to prevent eligible voters from participating in the election. If no candidate receives an absolute majority of the vote, a second round will held between the top two candidates on 21 April 2019. It is expected to be between Volodymyr Zelensky, who played the role of Ukraine’s president in a popular television comedy and the incumbent president, Petro Poroshenko.
This scenario has been built in President Infinity Classic as the editor is still under development in PI2020. It will most likely work in PI2020 but I may need to patch it if it doesn’t.
Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in a closer-than-expected race, in 2016. The race came down to razor-thin margins in Pennsylvania and Michigan. Following their defeat, many Republicans attempted a purge of “Trumpism”. Clinton’s presidency has been marked by partisan divide, and disillusionment with politics. The Democratic Party faced record breaking defeats in the 2018-midterms, with the Republican gain the House being stronger then their performance even in 2010. Purportedly, Clinton started her re-election campaign before the 2018-midterms, and has prepared for a long, and tough battle. Many Republicans have clamored at the prospects of defeating Clinton, but the field is wide and divided – Can Clinton defeat the divided Republican Party or will they find a candidate who can defeat her?
*Note: This version of the 1988 campaign is substantially updated. Changes include adding unique flavor, via actual events for each candidate in the general/primary election, new HD portraits, new issues, adding missing/alt-history candidates, and adding a full, working and accurate primary on both sides, with the correct turnout for each primary/caucus.
The 1988 campaign featured an open contest on both the Republican and Democratic sides, as Republican Pres. Ronald Reagan was entering the last year of his second term. Numerous contenders on the Democratic side entered the race. Commentators referred derisively to them as “The Seven Dwarfs.” They included former Arizona Gov. Bruce Babbitt, Delaware Sen. Joe Biden, Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis, Missouri Rep. Richard Gephardt, Tennessee Sen. Al Gore, civil rights leader Jesse Jackson, Illinois Sen. Paul Simon and the disgraced, “Eight Dwarf” former frontrunner, former senator Gary Hart of Colorado, who dropped out because of a sex scandal, reentered the race and then entered electoral obscurity. Two candidates who were somewhat more inspiring had decided not to run: Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy; and New York Gov. Mario Cuomo, who simply declined to run. The Republicans, seeking a candidate who could match the stature and electability of Reagan, were similarly at a loss. The nominal front-runner, George Bush, suffered from a reputation as a “wimp” who in 22 years of public life—as a former representative, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, director of the Central Intelligence Agency, and, for more than seven years, Reagan’s vice president—had failed to distinguish himself as anything more than a docile instrument of someone else’s policy. There were three interesting Republican alternatives: Bob Dole of Kansas, the Senate minority leader, who was respected for his wit and intelligence though considered by some to be overly acerbic; former New York representative Jack Kemp, revered among many conservatives as Reagan’s true ideological heir; and the Rev. Pat Robertson, a popular televangelist. None of the three, however, made it through the primary season. With the Reagan era drawing to a close, the wide open race has top names both sides of the political spectrum running for the top job. Liberal and Conservative Reverends, Hawks and Doves in both parties, which way will America turn?
Republican, and then Senator from Florida, Marco Rubio won in 2016, in a contested and tight election against Hillary Clinton. Both Rubio and Clinton faced divisive primaries, with Donald Trump, and Bernie Sanders respectively representing the growing populist agenda of the American electorate. The Democratic Party has seemingly broken out into civil war, not seen since 1968. Many Sanders supporters see the Democratic Primaries in 2016 as plainly unfair, and resentment has been rising. Can Sanders himself win the Democratic Party, or will the moderate wing of the party, weakened by the retirement of Biden following a series of strokes, be able to defeat him? – Regardless, Rubio has been a popular President with his base, as well as being the youngest Republican President since Teddy Roosevelt. Rubio will be well positioned for a re-match, but growing divisiveness, and the surge of Covid-19 will make for a tight, and intense election.
After a divided congress submersed into inaction, an unprecedent amount of corruption scandals that brought down the greatest national and local political figures, an all time unpopular president Carlos Alvarado, a global pandemic, historical unemployment levels, a rising debt. What will the Costa Rican people decide in an election marked by apathy, conspiracy theories, indecision, pessimism and a rise in alt right political extremism? Lets find out!
Ross Perot came to power in the most unique situation, of any President in the 20th century. Perot won as a independent candidate in 1992, but since then has formed a national party, calling the the “Reform Party”. Perot initially had very high approval rating, but since then has slumped in popularity after, despite his promises, the country fell into legislative gridlock. Despite this Perot was able to reject NAFTA, and begin the phase of withdrawing American forces in Europe. Perot initially said he only wanted one-term, but in coming months has made more and more overtures about running for another term. Can Perot win a second term? And who will the Democrats nominate after a close 2nd place finish in 1992, can they win? Will the Republicans be further humilated after a third-place finish in 1992?
(This is 2024 campaign, set in our own timeline, where Biden wins in 2020.)
Compatible with 3.1.1
The 2024 Election is set to be another deeply divisive election. President Joe Biden, despite earlier looking like he was going to enter the race, has decided not to run. The Democratic Field is occupied by many, but most notably Vice President Kamala Harris, and the ambitious Pete Buttigieg. Who can win? – The Republican field is much more simple, the President before Biden, Donald Trump refuses to accept the results of even the 2020 election, and is ready to “win for a third time”, facing a field including his own Former Vice President, Mike Pence. Can Trump win the primary, and ultimately win his second-term? Also in the fray, is independent candidate, and ex-Republican, John Kasich running a “moderate-conservative” campaign, can he prevent Trump in cementing his role as conservative leader? Who will win? You decide.
This is my fourth 2024 custom campaign, in this campaign, Trump won re-election in 2020, mainly because of not catching COVID and attending 2nd debate.
After nearly 4 years, the primary season has began and a handful of Democrats and Republican candidates line up to try to win their parties nomination. Who will win the Democratic nomination? Will it be a hardcore progressive like John Fetterman? A more ‘moderate’ Progressive such as Sherrod Brown, or maybe a moderate’s moderate, with Terry McAuliffe. Its up to you!
Have fun playing!
Leave in the comments if you have any suggestions, I will take them seriously and might add them to the reworked.

I took advantage of the PR system in President Infinity to simulate the PR system used for 47 of the seats. The folder for that is here. The PI file was somewhat hastily made, so it might have some flaws.
