BUSH STRUGGLES TO GET ON BALLOT AS POPULARITY DECREASES

 

George W. Bush may still be popular within the Republican Party, but it seems that he is unable to get on the ballot on multiple states. The Governor can't even get on the Texan ballots with ease, but he still has 116 days to the first primary to get on them

A total wipeout of the Reform Party, things aren't looking promising for Congressman Trump, the most likely nominee for the Reform Party.

The First Primary Debates:

 

Republican Debate - Thursday, 2nd December 1999

 

This was the first chance for all 10 candidates to show their debating skills. The debate itself was rather close, with Senators McCain and Hatch tied, followed by Lamar Alexander and Newt Gingrich, both tied, followed by a three way tie by Gary Bauer, John Kasich and Liz Dole. Jeb Bush was third last, followed by Steve Forbes. But then there was last place. George W. Bush floundered through the debate, polling a minus 5.

 

Gallup poll 3/12/1999

Bush: 20% (-3)

McCain: 17% (+1)

Dole: 7% (+1)

Forbes: 6% (-)

Bush: 6% (-)

 

However, an impressive ad campaign helped Bush

 

16/12/1999

Bush: 27% (+7)

McCain 16% (-1)

Dole: 7%

 

Democratic Debate - Friday, 17th December 1999

Al Gore completely thrashed the Vice President, painting him as a traitor attempting to disrupt party and national unity.

 

Gallup Poll - 23/12/1999

Al Gore: 65% (+5)

Bill Bradley (speculative): 17%

Ted Kennedy (spec): 14%

Joe Lieberman: 3% (-10)

It is now impossible for either Bush or McCain to win a majority, but whoever wins may be in with a chance. A damaging scandal has broken out, stating that the 1996 Californian bombings were orchestrated by the government in order to secure an Al Gore victory...

What is with you and an Orwellian, V-for-Vendetta-style, Machiavellian, evil, scheming, dictator in a constitutional electoral system Al Gore, if I may ask?

The original evil Gore partly came out of how good natured he seems in reality. Besides, this time it's Clinton's doing (someone more likely than Gore to do something dodgy to get elected

2000 Nominating Conventions

After multiple ballots, John McCain became the nominee.

59c818a323975_RepublicanPresidentialPrimaries2000.thumb.png.2d6adda4e662196f019b9928bacc7aa3.png

He chooses CEO Herman Cain as his running mate, in order to appear as a business friendly candidate.

 

Al Gore, having won every state, is nominated on the first ballot and chooses Governor Howard Dean as his running mate in order to distance himself from Lieberman's more hawkish views.

 

National polling is now neck and neck, following the inquiry into the California bombing. Polls give John McCain a slight lead, with 271 electoral votes
