1900 to - Playthrough

Recommended Posts

So this is going to be my playthrough of the elections from 1900 to 2020 and maybe farther. Note I always play on hard and after every election I plan on messing with the next election polls so it doesn't become a crazy alternative history.

 

Key to this post: Underlined name is who is the incumbent, Bolded name is who I played as, Italicized party initial is incumbent party.

1900: (R)McKinley: 332EV (50.9) l (D)Bryan: 126EV (48.5) l (S)Debs: 0EV (.6)

March 1st 1900

Welcome to President Infinity Radio: The 1900 election has started! On the Republican side incumbent President McKinley is the leader followed distantly by VP Roosevelt and he is followed by La Follette. On the Democratic side William Jennings Bryan (me) is leading the pact followed by former President Cleveland vying for a third non-consecutive term, followed by George Dewey and William Hearst. In the general polls it seems that the Democrats and Republicans look to be heading to a toss up with the Socialist party headed by Debs far far behind, but with the election being 249 days away anything can change!

April 2nd 1900

Welcome back to PI Radio. Today new information has come out showing that the Democratic delegates has become weary of Bryan seeing his loss just 4 years ago being too much baggage to support him, despite being endorsed by two national figures Susan B. Anthony and Booker T. Washington. It seems the Democrats weariness of Bryan has changed the polls in favor of the Republicans with the public now supporting the Republicans by over 5%.

July 2nd 1900

Welcome back to PI Radio. Bryan and McKinley has won their respective primaries. McKinley unsurprisingly choose Teddy Roosevelt as his VP nominee. The general polls jumped almost 10 points within this week. But Bryan was able to climb back up and at the moment of this broadcast they are tied. Also Bryan might be having crossover appeal as Robert Todd Lincoln has endorsed him over President McKinley.

September 17th 1900

Welcome back to PI Radio. Bryan has taken the lead in the Electoral College as it seems that Pres. McKinley's campaign is imploding. Fmr. Pres. Benjamin Harrison has endorsed Bryan in what seems like a very low blow to the President. Bryan is looking like he might be able to redeem himself in what many are calling the rematch of the century.

Welcome back to PI Radio! The election season has already begun and it looks to be once again a predictable win for the Republicans. On the Democratic side William Bryan is vying for a third time for President, while the Republican side looks to be locked down Sec. Taft. Even though the parties are locked even in the polls, the Republicans are leading heavily in the general election.

Welcome back to PI Radio! Taft and Bryan are closer than ever to winning the nominations! This will be Bryan's 3rd time. The general is looking similar to 3 months ago, hardly changed. Bryan's campaign has been very quiet lately, some are suspecting that they might be sitting on valuable dirt on Taft.

Welcome back to PI Radio. It's election night we will be updating you as results come in!

It's 8PM and Bryan is leading with 54EV while Taft is at 46. It is too early to make any predictions!

 

 

 

 

It's now 9:30PM and Taft is now leading with 240EV while Bryan has 227EV It's still anyone's win.

 

 

 

 

It's now midnight and we can now make a projection. BRYAN has defeated Roosevelt's selected successor.In a blow to the President and the Republican party. Taft stopped campaigning a few weeks before the election and it seems people were not too happy to realize that the man that Roosevelt had selected was so large that he could get stuck in a bathtub. Bryan has defied the odds and won. How ill this play out in the next four years to come we will see.

 

(OOC: Hard as hell to win against the Repubs in 1900-1908 I challenge anyone and everyone to try while playing on hard, and running NO ADS!)
