Mr. Political

America Elects - 2016

Recommended Posts

This is almost done, all I need to do is add/change/improve Vice Presidential Candidates on the DEM Side and add third parties. In the meantime I included some Election Night Results, note that some of these are me spacebarring as both candidates and some are me playing the game.

I can confirm the Republican Presidential candidates, everything else is in question at the moment...

John Thune

Marco Rubio

Susana Martinez

Tim Pawlenty

Bobby Jindal

Sam Brownback

Jon Huntsman

Kelly Ayotte

Michele Bachmann

Sarah Palin (off)

Mike Huckabee (off)

Rick Santorum (off)

Chris Christie (off, he'll likely lose reelection)

Scott Brown (off, he'll likely lose reelection)

John Kasich (off)

As a politically inclined Jerseyan, I HIGHLY doubt Christie will lose re-election. Our last 3 democratic governors were complete nutjobs- Florio was a borderline socialist, McGreevey lied to his wife and came out of the closet mid-term, and Corzine lost $1 billion. Sure, Whitman and Christie weren't the best, but Jerseyans on both sides are starting to get a little sick of being predictable. And of Democrats.

Good list, though I would include Brown as being on by default as well. Most polls show him ahead of his most formidable challenger. Also, consider adding Governor Bob McDonnell of Virginia for the GOP, and Martin O'Malley of Maryland for the Democrats.

I don't know if Jeb Bush would be a frontrunner considering his brother left office with a record low approval rating - even a lot of Republicans ended up hating him. The name Bush may be tainted in American federal politics for awhile to come.

While Jeb has numerous similarities to his brother George, his record as Governor has gotten above average marks. Even some Democrats in the state wish he was still Governor. He won't be immune to attacks about his relationship with his brother, but I don't think he'd necessarily be a goner...

okay Bush will remain a frontrunner, check POLLWONK to find out why

McDonnell is in the scenario, sorry I forgot him

O'Malley is in the list

Brown loses to Elizabeth Warren in almost every poll I've seen and as Obama steps up his campaign it'll help her as well

I don't see Christie winning reelection but if you turn him on it assumes he won reelection so he won't be hurt by "losing" (same for Brown)

Not trying to be too picky, but your statement ("Brown loses to Elizabeth Warren in almost every poll I've seen") isn't accurate. In fact, most recent polls have Brown up by near double digits: RCP Average for MA Senate

Looks great. Another candidate - a long shot in 2016, though, more likely for 2020 - might be Kamala Harris, assuming that she runs for CA Governor in 2014. She'd be only halfway into her first term, though ...

if someone is elected for the first time in 2014 they'd be getting in to office in january 2015...when candidates usually begin announcing. so she won't be included. i can add her to the veep list for sure though

I'd add Lisa Madigan of Illinois to the Dems Veep list. She'll most likely be elected our governor in 2014, or earlier if our current one gets recalled like I've heard rumors of.
