My best as William Tecumseh Sherman, in the 1884 scenario.  I started from the primaries.

On the eve of the primaries, I was projected to be only 2 delegates shy of winning the nomination on the 1st ballot.

I narrowly won New Hampshire and New Jersey, which put me over the top.

The Democratic contest was largely a stalemate between Cleveland and Bayard.  Everyone who dropped out rallied instead behind the compromise choice, perhaps one of the darkest of dark horse candidates, Rep. Joseph McDonald of Indiana (the game has this slightly incorrect, he had by this point been a US Senator).  I chose Frederick Douglass as my running mate, McDonald picked Gen. Winfield Hancock.

The election was close the entire time - polls consistently showed me narrowly ahead, but not by much.  Most of the swing states were leaning towards me in the last week.  Pennsylvania in the end was the only toss-up, and Tennessee was the only state I won that was leaning Democratic - Florida, Maryland, West Virginia, Arkansas and Michigan were all leaning towards McDonald, and he narrowly won them.

So some guy named Scoop Jackson beats the king of modern landslides... In a landslide...

Henry "Scoop" Jackson was a fairly prominent Democrat in the 1970s, especially among the foreign policy "hawks" of the party.

My question is, why are all your state abbreviations looking wacky?  They seem to be in the completely wrong place.

My best result as Populist James B. Weaver in the 1892 election.  I started the campaign in March.

Both Cleveland and Harrison were re-nominated without incident.  Neither contest was close.

Several of the historical US scenarios seem to have a bug where you are raising money faster than you can spend it, even with Fundraising at a 1.  This is largely to credit for my unlikely victory here  - drenching every state in 4+ ads every week has its advantages. ☺️

As much as I like winning easy landslides with my preferred candidates, eventually I'll go back in and tweak the fundraising to be more realistic.

I honestly have no idea.

I think it's because that's @victorraiders's version of the 1988 U.S. Presidential election scenario. He's well known for slip-shop, mistake-riven, sloppy rush-jobs, with graphic errors (like that one), text just cut-and-paste from other scenarios, so it's timeliness and context is off, and VERY dubious and questionable issue stances (sometimes whole issue's presence) with both the issues themselves and in candidate's platforms with them.

- This is the '76 scenario

- It's every scenario. I think it's something about the "large text".

Played as William F. Buckley and managed to win a plurality of the vote in Richmond, and denied Rep. Lindsay the office of mayor.

Decided to add Smedley Butler to the Socialist Party in the 1936 scenario, and got a little over 5% of the popular vote.

FDR vs. TR Jr. - mentally having the "Family Feud" theme going in my head right now. 🤣

Reminds me of the UK 2010 Labour party leadership election, where brothers David and Ed Miliband were the final two candidates to succeed Gordon Brown as Labour party leader.

My best as Jean-Luc Mélenchon, playing the excellent France 2017 election created by @Edouard.

First Round:
image.png.02e5e3c7c882ae7874fd13c2610360ff.png

I artificially simulate the second round in French elections by just turning every candidate off except the top two, and re-running the scenario.  I realize the vote totals are a little wacky, and the second round is only supposed to last two weeks.

Second Round:
image.jpeg.9cd689a75f84ccd131bafec103232b6f.jpeg

I have tried winning as the Socialist Party playing as Manuel Valls.  I managed to do much better than Benoît Hamon's actual performance, but still not quite good enough to make it to the second round.

I still wish he'd add the Overseas Departments and Collectivities. His reasons for not doing so seem - unconvincing... :(

Great Game !

And thank you for telling me this 😛 

I worked hard on everything to create the map and primaries, it barely took me 40h, when we will have a second round technology I will conclude the mod with a second turn

I worked hard to create the french presidential issues and our specifities like a Center-Left to left le Pen on Economy and Far Right on Order and Society.

Or Macron's specifities on economy and society where he's center-right for the first and center-left for the second.

And @Patine don't cry 😛 I swear I will try to find a way to add them without chaging the map

Because changing the map would barely take 9h straight to put back every numbers with no pause

My new best in PMI - UK.  I played as Blair.  It was a "Major disaster" for the Tories.

This is propably nothing, but I was very pleased with this run in the 1992 Thatcher fights on scenario. First try of a complete UK scenario, not sure what I am doing but it worked, I guess.
