  1. Greens should be a seperate party, they are running in 50/55 ridings and overlap with every PANB riding.
  2. I totally owned as Ross Perot in the 1992 scenario winning 511 electoral votes once. Took every state except Alabama, Mississippi and South Carolina (lost by less than 4% all 3 of them to Bush) and DC was still a Democratic landslide 56-35 for Cuomo vs Perot. Luckily got 4-5 of the Democrats (Clinton, Gore, Wilder, Rockefeller and Brown) and Buchanan from the Republicans to endorse me. And was able to get basically all the major newspaper/footsoldier endorsers. Won massively with only 42.3% of the votes too Bush had 30.8% and Cuomo had 26.9%.
  3. Kennedy 80.6% Reagan 19.4% Obviously a sweep of the electoral votes in 1980 too. Indiana was the closest 70.3-29.7, DC was 95-5 the biggest spread. Was trying to set up a Kennedy vs Bush matchup by attacking Reagan but Reagan just barely beat him, Meanwhile Kennedy won all but Florida in the Primaries and got Ford to be his Vice-President (Even though Ford was leading the Republican Primaries at the time in popular vote and about tied with Reagan), kind of snubbing Carter but oh well. Bush Endorsed Kennedy right before the conventions and gave him a 70-20 lead or so, which was expanded in the general election. http://img22.imageshack.us/i/kennedyvsreagan.png/
  4. all of them please pn107@hotmail.com
  5. The NDP owns the HRM (Halifax and surrounding areas), I believe they have 13/18 seats and are probably set to win 2 more at least in this area if recent polling is correct. (NDP 36% PC 30% LIB 30%) They also have some strong support in Sydney, a couple seats, and 5 or 6 rural seats scattered around the province. The Liberals were pretty weak last election but still hold a lot of support in Western Nova Scotia, a couple seats in Halifax and good support on Cape Breton. Theyre actually looking like theyll be a factor this election and will probably win a couple more rural seats and another one or two on Cape Breton. Their main problem is their vote total is spread out over rural and urban areas fairly equally in many cases, allowing the PCs and NDP to win because of their more concentrated vote. The PCs are obviously really strong in the rural areas but other than that they only hold 1 seat in Sydney and 3 seats in Halifax area and 2 of them are very marginal. They have the strongest support in Eastern Nova Scotia and Rural Cape Breton because of Rodney coming from Cape Breton. With a lot of negative press lately, and polling data showing them polling -10% from 2006, theyre probably in position to lose 4-5 seats if not more. 2006 was PC 40% NDP 35% LIB 24% approximately

    Canada 1940

    Since theres so many minor parties in 1940, if youre only going to put in 4, then Unity and United Reform would obviously have to go with the CCF, since they are all left-wing parties and a bunch of the other ones too (Farmer Labour parties, UFO, and various Labour parties would all go CCF too). Or make a 5th party and call it Independent/Labour Progressive to include the various independent and very left-wing(moreso than the CCF) parties with their 3 seats. This was actually the last election where the Liberal Party of Canada got more than 50% of the votes too. Adding in Liberal Progressive and Independent Liberal votes would give them over 55% actually.
  7. And the north ads are so expensive because the population is written as 5 600 000 or something. Probably supposed to be 560 000.
  8. Greens actually only get 1 million dollars, as compared to 10 million for the NDP. And i guess the NDP starts out at like 18-20% whereas every other party is about 1% below what they got in the actual 2007 election when you take undecideds into account.
  9. So far Ive played 3 times as McGuinty, fairly easy to win a majority all 3 times but I cant get higher than 66. I think he got 71 in the election. Ill try Howard Hampton later. The 2003 results are actually a fair bit different than 2007 in a number of cases. The Liberal seats in Toronto are on the whole stronger, specifically Ajax Pickering, Willowdale and Don Valley West, plus a bunch of other ones. Some are weaker, but mostly it should be an easier ride for the Liberals in Toronto and some of their 905 and Central Ontario seats. I think Tory won 7 seats to my 15 in the GTA with the NDP getting 5 even as I was headed to a strong majority in the other regions(even Central Ontario was won for the Liberals that time). Conversely 2007 saw a weakening of Liberal support in alot of their Northern ridings, big in terms of % even though no seats were lost. Leaders stats are pretty good, maybe Tory is a bit weak, maybe needs a 3 in experience other than a 2 although thats debatable, but other than that it seems fine. NDP seem to come on way to strongly percentage wise, I think they only got about 15% in the election in 2007, they dont tend to win any more than 15 seats, but theyve taken 21-24% every time. Greens too might be a bit overpowered, but thats probably because no one bothers to attack them since theyre not really worth it in a short campaign. Overall not bad.
  10. pn107@hotmail.com Id like to try, the BC scenarios are usually interesting.
  11. Looks pretty neat. Ill base my comments on the fact that it seems your scenario would lead to a fairly large 170 or so seat majority for the CPC, even though Im not at all a CPC supporter . If the CPC were at 45% or so like you said youre going to show them at, I still dont think they would win a whole lot of seats in 416 Toronto, although some 905 Toronto ridings that are Liberal now like in Missisauga and what not would definitely be in CPC hands, which probably gives them 65-70 seats in Ontario. The North would probably be almost all NDP, the 416 would be mostly Liberal with a couple NDP and CPC, Suburban Toronto would be mostly CPC with a few Liberals, and cities like Ottawa, Windsor and Hamilton and London would still have some Liberal and NDP representation. Another thing, Ignatieff is polling incredibly high in Quebec. Last one I saw was LIB 42 BQ 28 CPC 16 and another one was BQ 36 LIB 34 CPC 18. So in that case the CPC would lose a bunch of their Quebec area ridings and Laurence Cannon's Pontiac but would probably still hold their Beauce and surrounding seats seats giving them 5 or 6 in QC. In the west is probably where the CPC will increase the most percentage-wise(ie many more larger rural supermajorities but not a whole lot more seats). Alberta would be all CPC with a relatively close race in NDP-held Edmonton-Strathcona and every other riding a landslide. Sask would probably all CPC except Goodale in Wascana which would be very close. BC would probably be all CPC except a couple Vancouver ridings and a couple NDP rural seats where they have strong incumbents (ie Nathan Cullen and Atamatenko). The Liberals would probably be at 3-4 seats out west (Wascana and Yukon and maybe a Vancouver riding or two) the NDP probably around 10 (Northwest Territories a couple in Winnipeg, Churchill, and a few in BC) and the CPC the remaining 80 or so. The Maritimes would probably be about the same as 2008, probably with another seat or two in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick for the CPC, maybe one of the Newfoundland seats for the CPC and pretty close leads for the Liberals in some of their rural Maritime ridings. So overall this probably gives 80 West + 70 Ontario + 7-8 Quebec + 15-16 Maritimes seats for the CPC giving them about 175 and of course both Independent MP's are pretty conservative as well. The Liberals would probably have around 70-75 seats, with about 30 from Ontario about 25 from Quebec nearly all from Montreal or the surrounding area, 15 or so from the Maritimes and the rest scattered across the West. The NDP would probably have about 25, losing a few Western seats and rural/suburban Ontario seats to the CPC and then the BQ would have around 40.

    Canada 1993

    Mel Hurtig wins his seat most of the time for the National Party, even when the Liberals won the other 25 in Alberta or at least that is my experience.

    Canada 1993

    I tried it with Dave Barrett and the NDP the other day and got 285/295 seats. That wouldve been cool if it really happened lol.

    Canada 1993

    Thats very true. Another thing is that I always get a bunch of error messages at the start, but the game plays out ok. Though thats probably because I mistakenly copied it into the original 1993 scenario and it overwrote the game
