BREAKING NEWS: SOVIET FORCES INVADE AFGHANISTAN

Ah, the yes. The nation that not even World Powers and Superpowers can claim total military on it's soil. The last conqueror to do so was Alexander the Great when the region was called Bactria. The Umayyyad Caliphate, the Mongols, the Mughals, the Tsarist Russians, the British Empire, the Soviets, and, recently, the U.S.-led Coalition, all great World Powers or Superpowers militarly in their respective days, failed to achieve complete military victory in a socially-backward, technologically-behind, hinterland of the world where pastoral herding is still the biggest economic and professional endeavour... :P

Jimmy Carter has become presumptive nominee for the Democratic Party, after garnering the necessary delegates for the nomination. He has taken Attorney General Mondale as his running mate, Mondale of course famous for appointing the special prosecutor that led to President Kennedy's downfall. The theme of their campaign is restoring integrity to politics

1980 Election - General

Despite Fernandez leading in the latter half of the Republican primaries, nobody could garner enough delegates, so the convention was deadlocked. After hours of voting, and multiple ballots, the party picked the candidate they thought had the best chance...

 

Gerald Ford. 

 

He was the rightful winner of the last election, and would have won if not for the Democrats rigged the recount. He's running with Donald Rumsfeld, a man George Wallace controversially appointed Defence Secretary, on a platform of defence.

 

Meanwhile, John Anderson is running with Patrick Lucey, as an independent "national unity" ticket

The House of Representatives have voted in President Elect Carter, but there's a problem

 

 

Democratic dominance of the Senate ended in 1978.

 

The Senate has voted in Vice-President Elect Rumsfeld. This is the first time a Republican has made it into the Vice-Presidency for 20 years. Will we see another 20 years of dominance from the Democrats?

Election 1984

 

President Carter is wildly popular, with almost 78% of people seeing him positively. The Democratic Party, however, is expected to lose the election in a landslide. This is because people see Jimmy Carter as the same old same old. After Carter's success abroad, with the 1982 Camp David Accords and vital role in the Wallace Admin in negotiating with the Iranians, he is dead set on stepping down to either retire to Plains, or to become a full time activist. Walter Mondale, his running mate in 1980, is widely seen to be his successor. Meanwhile, George Bush finally has a shot at the presidency, but is facing a fierce challenge from Bob Dole and... Ron Paul??

Election 1984 - General

George Bush quickly swept the primaries, defeating all other candidates. He chose VP Donald Rumsfeld as his running mate, an act that was widely seen as a declaration of all out war against the Democrats.

Meanwhile, Mondale has chosen Geraldine Ferraro as his running mate.

 

John Anderson is making a second attempt, his image damaged with both Democrats and Republicans, as he is blamed for the election result of 1980

Election Night 1984

Hello, I'm Adrian Adams, and welcome to ANN's coverage of the 1984 Election. It has been a wild ride. The election started out with Walter Mondale looking on the verge of the biggest defeat in modern electoral history, and with George Bush the certain victor. But a series of gaffes put his campaign on the decline, and now things look uncertain. Here are the current standings

Capture.PNG.9d72429857fd3e23ba19109274c9f41d.PNG

That map is deceptive however, because here are the polls

Bush: 38%

Mondale: 36.6%

Anderson: 2.7%

Undecided: 23%

 

This could easily go either way.
