    2020 Election Scenario

    I'm updating the 2020 Election Scenario. Added Inslee, Swalwell, O'Rourke for Democrats. Adding Hogan and Kristol for Republicans, even though I doubt they run. I won't release this until Favorability and the 10 point rating system is released by @admin_270

    2020 Candidates (Who is running)

    I might add him just for you. He won’t be a very strong candidate outside of WV.

    2020 Candidates (Who is running)

    I'm updating my 2020 Scenario. I have the following candidates ON and OFF. Let me know if you disagree. Republicans: Trump, Kasich, and Flake are ON. All other Republicans, including Collins, Murkowski, Sasse, Hogan, Kristol and other anti-Trump Republicans are OFF. [I had toyed with having them all on as "undecided" but they never seem to jump in and it only slows the game down. So I decided to go back to having only Kasich and Flake as ON and actively running.] Democrats: Biden, Sanders, Warren, Booker, Harris, Brown, O'Rourke, Castro, Swalwell, Delaney are ON. Other names floated around are off, including Clinton, Hickenlooper, Bloomberg, Klobuchar, Holder, Avenatti, Steyer, Bullock, Merkley, Inslee, O'Malley, Moulton, Gabbard, etc. [I keep flipping people off an on. It's hard to tell which reports to take seriously. At this point, I think Booker, Harris, and Delaney are the most certain ON candidates.]

    2020 Election Scenario

    I agree. I think he does it without any political benefit for him. I think history will reward him, however. I could see Kasich becoming an Independent and running to drain Trump votes too in the general.
  5. I'm going to end the old RP, since we can't seem to get it running, and I'll start a new one. This new RP is very different. One person is President, and that president will react to historic events/decisions. The other players can react to the events/decisions as they bide their time before they can run for election against the incumbent president. In short, RPers will continue, erase, or alter the legacy of the president in office, should they take over. Oh, one RPer will be a VP, in case something happens to the pres. Since the old RP had @WVProgressive and @Sami as Pres and VP, we can start with them, if they wish to maintain these positions. They would take office as the first president and VP of 1789. This RP will be a lot easier to maintain, since it will only really require the president as being regularly active.

    I don’t even think he’ll be invited to the debates. I’ll add him one he polls 1% in a poll

  9. Yeah, I hope @admin_270 solves these issues.
  10. I seriously doubt such a ticket would be winning for Democrats, but Delaney/Becerra defeated Trump/Pence in President Infinity today. I played as "watcher" to see how well Beto O'Rourke would do (he dropped out after Super Tuesday). The Democratic Convention was deadlocked with Biden, Delaney, Sanders, Booker as the frontrunners. After several ballots, it came down to Delaney vs. Sanders, with Biden making the final decisions. Delaney got Biden's endorsement. The selection of Becerra was surprising, since I thought he would have picked someone closer to Sanders. I expected Trump to bounce back in the polls after the Democrats fielded a weak ticket, but he seems to take a break during the General Election. Delaney won with about the same score that Trump won with in 2016, but Delaney won the popular vote. For whatever reason, the computer seems to be more active in the primaries than the general election.

    Me too. Although, I think his personality (outside his ideology) attracts Republicans more than Democrats. Democrats tend to favor finesse politicians more often than not.

    That probably means he won't run. Good. I'll turn him off.

    My 2020 Scenario

    I have Kasich and Flake as most likely to run in my 2020 scenario, since they have said they are considering running. They've also been more nationally vocal against Trump than Hogan. Interesting about Dawson as a candidate. I doubt she'll run. Seems like Stein has sort of taken over the party as a Jill Stein Party rather than a party that is allowed to have other candidates for president.
  14. vcczar

    My 2020 Scenario

    Looks good. How did you decide that Rosario Dawson is a candidate and that Hogan is the default challenger of Trump?

    Rank the 2020 Candidates in primary strength

    I'm talking about tiers as in initial candidate power. For the sake of the game, I'm asking how strong each candidate should be in initial support.

    Rank the 2020 Candidates in primary strength

    Biden is routinely leading the polls. 26% in the last poll. Sanders at 19%. O'Rourke came in 3rd with 8%. There are a few 5% (Warren and Booker) and the rest are 2% and 1%. Then there are the 0%. I'd call Biden and Sanders top tier in this poll. O'Rourke, Warren, Booker as 2nd tier. The 1-2% as 3rd tier and the 0% people as 4th tier.

    2020 Election Scenario

    As I’m saying, I don’t think they care about their reputation in regards to political power or support. I think they care about their principal, believing that their reputation will be lifted in the eyes of Republicans of the future. I doubt either one seeks higher office other than token primary challenges to Trump. If you listen to their rhetoric, this becomes clear.
  19. vcczar

    2020 Election Scenario

    Yeah but we are talking about Republicans that have no qualms attacking Trump, even after he’s become president and tamed Graham and Cruz. Kasich, Flake, etc. more courageous than worried about their reputations.
  20. vcczar

    2020 Election Scenario

    This isn't likely to happen, but it could in President Infinity. What if all the undecided/not running people on my list ran. The idea would be to collectively gather enough delegates to stop Trump or pressure him to move away from policies that are anti-thetical to traditional 21st century Republicans, such as protectionism or opening relations with traditional enemies. Although, I doubt Trump caves to anyone, since he operates as a party of self rather than a party of a variety of Republicans.

    2020 Election Scenario

    I agree with the economy as being a factor. However, I think Kasich and Flake aren't really interested in winning. I think it's more out of principal. I think both of them think that if no one runs against Trump then it will look terrible historically for the Republican Party. I think they view Trump as poorly as most Democrats, if not more. In many ways, it is comparable to Sanders's 2016 campaign. He initially ran without considering victory. He just wanted to get his message out there. Sanders wasn't supposed to get much more than a percentage or two. I think Kasich, Flake, or both will run, even if the economy is still good. The primary season is long enough that the economy could change at any moment. Many economists are predicting a drop in the economy at some level or another. I deleted all my events from my scenario, so I don't have the economy as a factor one way or the other.

    2020 Election Scenario

    @admin_270 and others. I am currently updating the 2020 scenario. Just to make the game more interesting, I’ve set several Republican Trump critics to ON as either undecided or not running. Thus, Trump may run unopposed or he could face challenges from one or more of the following: Kasich, Flake, Sasse, Romney, Corker, Collins, Murkowski, Hogan, Kristol. Since Trump is in perpetual campaign mode, I’ve increased his campaign ratings.

    I've started to update the 2020 scenario. It might be a week until it comes out, however.
