United States 2016 Development

Recommended Posts

So I got a little bored and decided to start a 2016 scenario. If all goes well I'll make two, one with Obama winning in 2012 and one with Romney (Gingrich? Hopefully not) winning in 2012. I'll start with Obama because we don't know for sure who the GOP nominee is going to be. The premise behind the first scenario is that Obama won the election narrowly in 2012 as the economy began to show signs of recovery, but the Eurozone crisis coupled with rising prices have caused the economy to stagnate again.

Basically I need suggestions for candidates, who should be strong where, etc. Everything else is pretty straight forward.

Cuomo should be the frontrunner and Feingold should the insurgent coming out of no where

Democratic Candidates:

VP Joe Biden- very weak

Sec.Hillary Clinton (off)

Gov. Andrew Cuomo

Gov. Russ Feingold

Sen. Mark Warner

Gov.Bobby Jindal

Gov. Susana Martinez

For Romney win: Economy still in bad shape from Euro and China, things could be getting better, but will it be fast enough?

Republican Candidates:

President Mitt Romney/ Vice President Chris Christe

Democratic Candidates: Feingold should have lead followed by Cuomo

VP Joe Biden- very weak

Sec.Hillary Clinton (off)

Dems are definitely harder to pick candidates for than Republicans. I'll end up including Biden and Hilary just because theres little else. I have a TON of Republican candidates at the moment. Probably too many but I guess in a future scenario its better to include any potential candidates than to leave anyone out.

Most definitely Martin O'Malley for the Democrats, but I'd ask that you do Romney first as there are no scenarios like that at the moment...

...Heath Shuler and Debbie Wasserman Schulz are possibilities too
