  1. Hey guys, After assembling information, I am now ready to release the new and improved candidates for the 2016 Election Advanced. Here they are... GOP: John Thune Marco Rubio Chris Christie Bobby Jindal John Huntsman Jr. Scott Brown Paul Ryan Jeb Bush Michelle Bachmann Bob McDonnell Nikki Haley (possibilities:) John Kasich (ON) Rick Scott (ON) Scott Walker (OFF) David Petraeus (OFF) Allen West (OFF) Eric Cantor (OFF) Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo Sen. Sherrod Brown Sen. Mark Warner Sen. Kay Hagan Sen. Joe Manchin Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand Sen. Bob Casey Jr. Gov. Carte Goodwin Possibilities Vice President Joe Biden (OFF) Secy. of State Hillary Clinton (OFF) Sen. Russ Feingold (OFF) Sen. Gabrielle Giffords (ON) Sen. Mark Pryor (ON) Gov. Ted Strickland (ON Gov. Pat Quinn (OFF) Sen. Evan Bayh (ON) Candidate Standings...Thune, Rubio, and Jindal would be the three frontrunners for the 2016 GOP race with Christie, Bush, Ryan, Brown, and Huntsman Jr trailing a few points behind. Bachmann, McDonnell, and Haley would all be the longer shots. On the Democratic side, Andrew Cuomo would be the front runner, narrowly however, since there is a strong field of opponents from Sherrod Brown, Mark Warner, Kay Hagan, and Joe Manchin to the young and enthusiastic Carte Goodwin, Kirsten Gillibrand and Bob Casey Jr. Republican Possibilities: Kasich, Walker, Scott and West would all poll in the single digits obviously. Petraeus and Cantor would have a reasonable shot at 10%. Petraeus however might have faded from public memory while Cantor may simply lack the solid backing from party leaders for a good shot. Democratic Possibilities: If Biden were to enter the race, he would be the front runner by a good margin. However, his political weakness in Iowa may prove fatal to his campaign. If Clinton were to enter, she would also poll modestly well and would be considered a front-runner. Feingold, Pryor, Strickland, Quinn, and Bayh would all be polling single digits. Giffords on the other hand would prove a serious challenge to other candidates, though her stamina may hinder her. Thanks to those who submitted suggestions in the last post! Send me your feedback! Thanks! POLLWONK
  2. One can never start predicting too early! Submit your votes and comment! POLLWONK!!!
  3. France 2012 has been completed. (for P42008 engine) Since the 270admin hasn't activated a scenario author's page yet, I will be emailing out the scenario until then. Please post your email address and I'll get it to you as soon as possible. Note: This is the 1st Edition of the Scenario. I am going to add more candidates for the Third Parties once I have an author's page on Meta. If you have any questions, then just post on the forum and I'll answer them as soon as possible.
  4. Greetings, Here is my 1972 scenario in the works... Hubert Horatio Humphrey manages to win the close 1968 Election and defeat Nixon once and for all. However, doubts among hesitant Democrats regarding Vietnam materialize as the war drags on in 'Nam. Coming into 1972, the Republicans have a fit and ready line-up in George Romney, Ronald Reagan, Nelson Rockefeller, and many more. Will the re-energized GOP finally reclaim the White House? Or can Humphrey win a second term? Republicans Gov. George Romney Gov. Ronald Reagan Gov. Spiro Agnew Gov. Nelson Rockefeller Gov. James Rhodes Sen. Clifford Case Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge Democrats Pres. Hubert Humphrey Sen. Eugene McCarthy Sen. George Smathers Gov. Margaret Chase-Smith Please submit your ideas for candidate ratings etc. POLLWONK
  5. Hey there, This is a scenario that I've been pondering for a while and have finally decided to craft... It's a futuristic and hypothetical setting where the world unites under the banner of the United Nations to form a one world government. Here's the cool part... you get to submit your ideas for the name of the One World Government... AND its parties. So fire away your ideas for parties and such. I'll organize the candidates (prominent global leaders) into the parties that best match their views once your ideas have been submitted. Thanks again! POLLWONK
  6. Hey guys, I am going to be sending in a scenario for downloading...President Al Gore-Presidential Election 2004... basic storyline... "After winning narrowly in 2000, Al Gore has endured a first term with many difficult events. After 9/11 he seemed unbeatable. However, his Enviormental Act as well as a sluggish economy has alienated many voters within his own party. Some are doubting how dedicated he is to the War on Terror and addressing Terrorist Nations. Can he win?" COMING SOON! POLLWONK

    One World Government 2017

    That would be interesting... A global energy crisis would be neat. I think its somewhat far fetched to say we will have run out by 2017, but maybe it's going faster than we thought? I could also throw in some issues regarding religion, global warming, guns, burqas, etc.
  8. Greetings! After several requests were submitted, I have decided to commence work on the sequel to the "President Romney- 2016" scenario released earlier this year. Here is a general plotline of what happened... "During the course of his second term, President Romney has managed to maintain and preserve America's surprisingly strong economy. And much to the nation's rejoicing, in 2018, the US Budget is balanced for the first time in 20 years. However, his foreign policy record continues to remain tarnished. President Vladimir Putin of Russia is now waging war against his own people and a civil war is breaking out in Russia. Some are asking Romney to intervene while others urge him to stay out. The United Nations and NATO are crumbling from the massive disagreements between its constituents. Meanwhile, relations between North and South Korea have turned cold as numerous skirmishes occur, killing several U.S. Troops. These events have led many to believe it is time for a change in the White House and a reenergized Democratic Party looks forward to the next election. Can the Republicans hang on for a historic third term?" Right now, I've gotten a couple candidates researched... here we go... Democratic Gov. Julian Castro Gov. Gavin Newsom Sen. Kristen Gillibrand Gov. Corey Booker May. Rahm Emanuel (NEED MORE CANDIDATES! PLEASE SUBMIT IDEAS!!!) Republican Vice Pres. Paul Ryan Sen. Rand Paul Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. Sen. Marco Rubio (OFF) Gov. Chris Christie (OFF) (NEED MORE CANDIDATES! PLEASE SUBMIT IDEAS!!!) Please give me your ideas and feedback so this game can be just as good if not better than the 2016 game. Thanks for your time!

    SEQUEL: Romney Term Limited

    Scenario posted on 270soft scenarios page. Thanks again to everyone for their help and support in creating this scenario. Honorable mentions to Elliot, Patine, Tom Filurin, ProudBlueDogDem, Tayya, and James Knupp! Enjoy!
  10. Attributes noted, will incorporate several ideas into the game.

    One World Government 2017

    Well, there was an old joke i remember my teabagger friends kept telling me... "Why does Obama hate Israel so much? Because he's an alumnus of the other team." Anyway, I think one emerging issue of the One World Government should be the problem of unified parties and conflicting opinions. That would be a major issue in any future hypothetical one world government. But I'm open to any suggestions, as long as we can keep the number of parties and candidates to a managable level. This is probably the biggest challenge I've taken on for a scenario thus far, mostly because a lot of it is hypothetical.

    One World Government 2017

    British Conservatives are actually fairly similar to American Democrats.
  13. POLLWONK

    One World Government 2017

    Will add suggested candidates. Please note that this scenario will take a lot of work just to set up... I think that's probably all the candidates I can plausibly include.

    One World Government 2017

    I'm now creating two Islamic Parties... Added... Islamic Justice and Construction (Sunni) -Nouri Al-Maliki Islamic Liberation (Shia) -Ayatollah Khomenei -Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
  15. Margaret Chase-Smith added. Gerald Ford to be removed.
  16. Overall, its a much more polished, realistic, and believable game than the 08 Engine. A major improvement in an already excellent game.

    One World Government 2017

    Angela Merkel will be removed from Global Progress. Mahmoud Abbas added to Global Progress.

    One World Government 2017

    I think Elliot makes a great point that Shia and Sunni Muslims wouldn't be in the same party. I think I'll seperate them... How do these party names sound? Social Democrats - Francois Hollande (France) - Dilma Rousseff (Brazil) - Manmohad Singh (India) - Jacob Zuma (South Africa) - Jens Stoltenberg (Norway) - Ed Miliband (United Kingdom) Global Progress - Barack Obama (USA) - Angela Merkel (Germany) - David Cameron (UK) - Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf (Liberia) United Conservatives - Benjamin Netanyahu (Israel) - William Hague (UK) - Stephen Harper (Canada) - Angela Merkel (Germany) We.R.Earth - Antanas Mockus (Colombia) - Renate K√ľnast (Germany) - Elizabeth May (Canada) Proletarian - Hugo Chavez (Venezuela) - Cristina Kirchner (Argentina) - Raul Castro (Cuba) - Robert Mugabe (Zimbabwe) - Alexis Tsipras (Greece)

    Scenario Poll

    I will begin working on 1972 Hubert Humphrey and One World Government 2017... new threads to be posted in just a sec...
  20. Hey everyone, I wanted to know what scenarios you felt should be created. Please vote in the poll! POLLWONK
  21. POLLWONK

    Scenario Poll

    It would include numerous important and prominent people from certain regions. For example, in Africa, Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, and Kofi Annan would all be candidates. In the Middle East, you'd have the Ayatollah, Mahmoud Abbas, and al-Maliki. Asia would sport Hu Jintao, Ban Ki-Moon, Julia Gillard. For Europe, you could throw in Angela Merkel, Tony Blair, etc. It would take leading officials from each corner of the globe and run them in an election. I might need ideas for parties though.

    SEQUEL: Romney Term Limited

    Tom, that is the thing about making hypothetical scenarios. A lot of presupositions go into making a futuristic election. I make a couple of assumptions in this game to make it more interesting and to bring about a realistic result. What wwas your point about Bachmann and Pawlenty?
  25. How on earth did I miss this? This looks so awesome!
