    Map making offer

    What if I just tell you what I need? Or do you want me to make the picture and you convert it? Because I don't know exactly what yet, but I do know I will need a few smaller maps for my singular character pbp.

February 6th, 1968 - President Smith orders 500,000 more troops to be sent to Vietnam making the total 1,250,000. This process will take 6 months. Analysis: President Smith has made a huge gamble by giving 100 billion to China, especially when Johnson's medicaid and medicare promises are expected to default in the 80-90's. But if it pays off she will save the Americans a huge embarrassment. Though she is very unpopular sending much more troops than this timeline. She has stopped that stigma that women cannot be effective leaders. She is definitely better than Wallace would've been. Approval of Pres. Smith at beginning of primaries: 52 Approval of VP Rockefeller at beginning of primaries: 55

    Well final results are in and the total is 316 for Smith and 222 for Wallace. The popular vote is much closer at 51.7 and 48.3. Gov. Wallace turned what should have been a blowout for Democrats into a blow out for Republicans. So until next time goodnight!

    With Montana and South Dakota being called for Sen. Chase that brings to total now to 304 to 143. Sen. Chase has received the concession call from Gov. Wallace just minutes ago. He was reportedly waiting for New York to be finished reporting results. Sen. Chase at 99% reporting leads with 59 to 41 in New York. We’ll be able to call most states by midnight so stay tuned!

    Well we can go ahead and call the election for Sen. Smith making history as she is the first woman ever elected to be President. The current total is 269 to 123. The entire country is reportedly taking a huge sigh of relief as Gov. Wallace almost made it to the White House. Pres. Johnson has appeared with Sen. Chase on stage while she gave her victory speech. We still have states to call so we will still be airing.

    As I said earlier we would be able to call some more states by 9:15 and we have, we are now adding New York and Florida to Smith’s column and that brings the total to 146 for Smith to 51 for Wallace. This night is turning out to be much different than most had anticipated. We still have a while to go before anyone is declared President but it seems history will be made here tonight.

    It’s 8:45 and we can now call Georgia and Mississippi for Gov. Wallace. Bringing the total to 35 to 38 with Sen. Smith leading. It seems tonight that Gov. Wallace has had a huge loss in the South with Arkansas and Missouri falling into the Smith column. We’ll likely be able to call some more state around 9:15 so stay tuned.

    Nov. 3rd, 1964 Welcome back to PITV! Tonight's election night and it seemed that Sen. Chase had the lead going into the night but we all know how that can change. It is a little later than usual but we have more states to look at. The current electoral count is 13 to 12 with Wallace leading, but that is likely to switch all night long. Right now the uncalled states are evenly split almost between the candidates. Smith does lead in South Carolina and Florida as well as Ohio while Wallace leads in the Virginias and Georgia.

    Sep. 14th, 1964 Welcome back to PITV! New polling out shows Sen. Smith has recovered from the breaking poll numbers last week with endorsements from Nixon, Eisenhower and as well as Pres. Johnson. She jumped 7 points to retake the lead as well as tie or take small leads in most Southern states. Will she be able to hold this new lead or will Wallace rebound? We will see over the next few weeks.

    Aug. 31st, 1964 Most Americans were shocked this morning when new polling came out showing Smith and Wallace in a literal dead heat. Wallace has taken the lead in most Southern states taking a huge chunk of Smith’s support. I think I speak for most Americans when I say this; A vote for Wallace is a vote for going back into time. Vote Smith!

    Aug. 28th, 1964 Well it’s official! Gov. Wallace has won the nomination, and he has chosen Gov. Allan Shivers as his running mate cementing his stance on the civil rights movement. The Democrats are currently far behind electorally and behind over 5 points polling wise. Can Wallace make a come back?

    Jul. 20th, 1964 New polling out today that shows the nation’s attitude towards Gov. Wallace. His numbers in the North has dropped like flies days after dozens of elected Democratic officials say they won’t vote for him and will support Sen. Chase. Her numbers jumped 4 points nationally and almost 70 points in her home state as well as an average of 40 in all Northeastern states. This is sure to make a deafening blow against Wallace’s chances at the White House.

    Jul. 17th, 1964 Well it’s official Sen. Smith has become the first woman to win one of the major parties nominations for President. She won handedly in the primaries and has chosen Gov. Rockefeller as her running mate. These two seem to be the nations best hope to stop Gov. Wallace. Pres. Johnson has started signing civil rights legislation ahead of the election in what seems as a desperate attempt to further the civil rights movement before a possible Wallace presidency.

    Jun. 24th, 1964 Well it’s official! Gov. Wallace will be the Democratic nominee, besting what seemed to be like a rock solid President. Sen. Chase has yet to secure enough delegates to lock in her nomination, but still leads handedly. With conventions right around the corner can she hold onto her lead?
