    Historical Scenario Commission Election Updates!

    @vcczar Hey man, turns out I had 1860 done the whole time. 1960 is the one I still have to redo. So just let me know whenever you're on that election so I can send you the corrected numbers

    @vcczar Hey man, how close to you are 1860? Still not rushing, once again doing the opposite. Been very sick for about a month now and I'm just beginning to recover from it, so I didn't have time to finish the 1860 population counts. I should in about a week or two though, just wanted to let you know I haven't forgotten that I said I'd do that for ya. Also, I got another suggestion for a future edit to a campaign. I'll put it on the page, I just wanted to run it by you first - Ross Perot as a Republican candidate in 1992. There were a few states in the primaries where he got a pretty significant percentage, despite not even being on the ballot.

    I gotcha. If it counts for anything though, I think John Calhoun saw this as a blow to his potential candidacy since the South Carolina legislature nominated Lowndes instead of him.

    @vcczar Found another candidate for you! William Jones Lowndes of South Carolina. He was put forth as a potential candidate all the way back in 1821 but died a year later. I only put it here instead of the 1824 page because I wanted to see what you thought of including candidates that had passed away such a long time before the potential election.

    Just another little reminder for myself for later. I've done potential VPs and presidents up to 1916 (though not all elections had any I could see). Whenever I get back to this I'll be going from 1920 and onward.

    Finally got around to adding those candidates I mentioned previously to their respective campaign pages. Some of them may be already in the game. I didn't have time to double check, so apologies if this is the case. Going to research a few more tonight.

    I hear ya man. Think about it though. I'd be happy to even do the Democrat-Trump candidate On an unrelated note, how close are you to 1860? Not rushing you, quite the opposite actually. Haven't been feeling too well lately and am just now beginning to recover, so I haven't had time to do the numbers for that scenario like I said I would.

    Hey, @vcczar, don't mean to bother you but I just had a neat little though about the 2016 election, which I know is a long way off but I thought I'd tell you about my idea while it's still fresh. Have you ever thought about putting Donald Trump in that election has a Democrat option as well? I only ask because it's a known fact that for a good chunk of at least the 2000s he was a Democrat. Plus in a lot of older scenarios he is a Democrat option, though he was a registered Democrat then. Really I ask because it's a new fantasy of mine to run Trump against Sanders in the primaries season

    I appreciate you looking for it man. I hate to admit to it, but my understanding and knowledge of politics outside of the US is pretty limited at the moment. I'm working on expanding it though You should read up on Barkley some time. He's one of the most interesting vice presidents the country has ever had in my opinion, and likely would have made a good president if he had been given the chance. There was also one occasion when he and Chandler ran against each other for the Democratic party nomination for senate. Barkley was the incumbent at the time; the race is actually pretty hilarious. If I recall right Chandler accused Barkley's team of poisoning him, which became a point of parody for Barkley on the campaign trail. I understand the interest in historical elections. That's how I feel when it comes to presidential elections, but when it comes to gubernatorial or senatorial I'm more intrigued by more recent ones, largely because there is more information available on them. That being said, it seems like the losers of these kinds of races, unless the race is close or the figure was already well known, seem to just up and disappear, even nowadays. Anyways, thanks for the well wishes and the help. Good luck to you and your Alberta scenarios! Will definitely give them a try when they're done Oh, another interesting KY politician you might be interested in looking into - Cassius Marcellus Clay. He was a cousin of Henry Clay if I recall right, and an early supporter of abolition. There was a very real chance of him being named Lincoln's VP in 1860. He was also pretty violent and kinda nuts, haha.

    Thanks man, I really appreciate that I wanna work on some senate races, as well as some governor races. I'm mainly interested in covering races that Alben Barkley and Happy Chandler participated in. I'm from Kentucky, and our political figures are seriously under discussed. I'm a huge presidential and presidential election nut and one of my favorite facts is that both the youngest and the oldest people to be elected to the vice presidency were born, raised and died in Kentucky: John C. Breckinridge (35 at election, 36 at inauguration) and Alben W. Barkley (70 at election, 71 at inauguration), respectively. @Patine Did you ever find out if that map pack had Utah in it or not? If not, that's fine. I only have one race I want to make for that (this year's senate race), and I'm more interested in that for the hypothetical McMullin candidacy than for the actual race. But while I'm on the topic, is there an Alabama map available? That's where I currently live and, like Kentucky, it has a lot of pretty interesting figures and races. The only bad thing about making a campaign for that is I can't do them accurately until a primary run-off feature is made available for the game, but it'd still be good fun to get one ready for such a day There are also a few races I'm interested in making for this year. Once again, I'm more interested in hypothetical stuff, like having Kid Rock run for senate in Michigan, or Jerry Springer for governor in Ohio (those are both pretty silly examples, but you get the idea). I might make 1990 and 1994 races for Texas, too. But I can't make any promises on that, or any of this really. I may try my hand at campaign creation and decide I hate it, or that it's too time consuming for me personally. Just gonna have to see I guess

    I know this may be the wrong place to ask, but is there anywhere I can find some maps of Kentucky and Utah? I'm thinking about making a couple of scenarios myself. Senate and gubernatorial stuff.

    General Historical Scenarios Update

    @vcczar I posted several different third party candidates under each election. All of the parties got at least one percent in one state each, I made sure of it Still haven't redone 1860 or 1964's population counts yet, but I did add Darryl Perry and Marc Feldman to 2016. I plan on adding some Green candidates too. I also added the Constitution, PSL and ADP parties, though only one candidate each. I remember you saying the 1% rule but I kinda went ahead and added them to my own game, just for fun, and I thought I'd ask if you'd like them too. Still kind of working on the numbers. Anyways, hope that all helps. I'll look into potential VPs for main parties and some more potential candidates soon.

    General Historical Scenarios Update

    Same here. That's part of why I love elections from 1876 to the early 1900s. The third parties always seemed to score a pretty good percent of the vote when combined. 2016 had the potential to have a significant showing for a third party candidate, but unfortunately the two major ones ran pretty boring and even incompetent candidates that either couldn't attract more votes or even scared away some votes. I mean, it's not their fault who ran, but it was a little disappointing that the parties fizzled out when this was their best chance for a good showing in a long while. I was also let down by Evan McMullin. I don't support him in any way but I hoped he'd win in Utah, or at least win a few counties or come in second place statewide.
