Samuel Adams' America

Recommended Posts

ELECTION 1936

President Roosevelt was quick too enact his New Deal legislation, and got much of it into law in his first 100 days. He also by executive order took the dollar off of a gold standard, something many thought was a unwise move. He also signed the FERA bill, as well as signed the socialist Tennessee Valley Act. More government control of the economy was also enacted with the passing of the Federal Securities Act. Prohibition was also ended with the passage of the 21st Amendment, as well as the USSR and the USA opening diplomatic relations. The SEC was also created. Many critics of Roosevelt said that he was a dangerous socialists, and economists were estimating that his programs could prolong the depression, which, in hindsight, they ended up doing. By 1936, Roosevelt had challenges within his own party, the most popular being Huey Long, as left wing populist Senator from Louisiana, who had survived an assassination attempt which left him wheelchair bound. Some called him a dangerous demagogue, while others saw him as a hero for the people. Nevertheless, Roosevelt handily won renomination on the first ballot, and Long declared candidacy as a third party candidate. The Republican primary was between candidates such as the moderate Governor Alf Landon, who lead in the polls much of the race. Other popular candidates included progressive Senator William Borah, former President Herbert Hoover, conservative Robert Taft (son of former Vice President William Taft), Senator Arthur Vandenburg, Theodore Roosevelt, Jr, and John W Bricker. The contested convention nominated President Hoover. Hoover had considerable popularrity, and ran on balancing the New Deal with fiscal responsibility. The message didnt resonate enough, and Roosevelt was reelected to the presidency.

ELECTION 1940

Roosevelt has started off his new term under intense controversy, as his court packing scandal brings down his popularity, making him look more hungry for power. Roosevelt also signed neutrality acts, to make the US neutral in terms of the wars in Asia and Europe, even though he continues to ship weapons to the British. Roosevelts Agricultural Adjustment Act does nothing to help the starving impovershied of the country, as it orders farmers to burn crops as a price control. War came to Europe in 1939, as German dictator Adolf Hitler invaded Poland. Roosevelt still pledges neutrality although his arms dealings show otherwise. Roosevelt faced challenges from his own party once again, and his own VP. Vice President Garner did not approve of Roosevelts policy, being a conservative and such. Postmaster General (and former Roosevelt campaign manager) James Farley and Senator Millard Tydlings also ran, but Roosevelt ended up being voted for by every candidate. The race for VP was hotly contested. The left wing of the party supported Ag Secretary Henry Wallace, while a dark horse moderate in Senator Harry Truman ended up rounding enough delegates to win the nomination. The Republican Primary was between Senator Robert Taft, NYC District Attorney Thomas Dewey, Senator Arthur Vandenburg, Governor John W Bricker, former President Herbert Hoover, NYC Mayor Fiorello La Guardia, Theodore Roosevelt, Jr, and Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. The once again contested convention ended up falling to the conservatives, with the nomination of John W. Bricker, and Governor Arthur James as the VP nominee. Huey Long also made another run for the presidency as well. The race was mainly over the war overseas. Bricker wanted to remain neutral just in case, Roosevelt wanted to keep our allies armed and prepare to go in if the need arises, and Long was against being involved in any case. Roosevelts internationalist policy may have not been the poppular stance, but his leading of the nation through the depression got him elected, making him only tthe 7th out of 27 presidents to serve more than 2 terms. Senator Long ended up dying from an infection due to his old injuries in June of 1941, and was eulogised by the President at the state funeral in Baton Rouge.

ELECTION 1944

The world is steeped in war. Germany has taken over France and invaded the Soviet Union, while Japan keeps making gains in the Pacific. This all comes to a head, when on December 7, 1941, when Japan bombed the US Naval Base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Roosevelt asked for a declaration of war the next day. US involvement in the war looked like a lost cause until the battle of Midway, where we successfully fought off the Japanese forces. By the time 1944 rolled around, the Allied Powers were on their way to victory in Europe, after the successful D Day invasion of Normandy in Europe, and the island hopping victories against Japan in the pacific. Nobody in the Democrats wanted to challenege FDR. The Republicans were a tight race amongst themselves, between Governor Thomas Dewey, Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr, 1940 nominee John W Bricker, Senator Arthur Vandenburg, Congressman Everett Dirksen, Governor Harold Stassen, and Governor Earl Warren. The race was once again led by Dewey, but come the convention, Lodge was able to garner enough delegate support to upset Dewey for the nomination. Lodge named Vandenburg as his running mate. Lodge campaigned on ending the war and blocking any post war power of the Soviets, while FDR wanted a fair deal and to continue his creation of the United Nations. The people chose Roosevelt once again, despite concerns of his failing health. Roosevelt died 4 months into his term, leaving Vice President Truman in charge of bringing the war to an end.

ELECTION 1948

President Truman was unexpectedly thrust into the position of the presidency with the death of Franklin Roosevelt. When he got into office, he was informed of the Manhattan Project and the nuclear bombs the US had secretly developed. He considered using them on Berlin, but the suicide of Adolf Hitler ended the war in Europe a month after becoming president, so Truman set his sights on Japan. After bombing the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the war ended in September of that year. Truman enacted the Truman Doctrine and the Marshall Plan to help rebuild after the war. He also created the Central Intelligence Agency. The US and the UK conducted the Berlin Airlift to get supplies into West Berlin, which was cut off by the Soviets. The Democratic Primary showed a split on what direction to go. President Truman was challenged by his Secretary of State and Nobel Prize winner (for his role in creating the UN) Cordell Hull, former Ag Secretary Henry Wallace, Senator Richard Russell, Governor Strom Thurmond, and Senator Claude Pepper. Truman secured renomiation on the first ballot, while Wallace and Thurmond, representing the left and the right of the party, ran as independent candidates. The Republicans were undecided on the three major candidates at the tme of the convention - Governor Thomas Dewey, Governor Harold Stassen, and General Dwight Eisenhower. The delegates would compromise on nominating Senator Arthur Vandenburg, with Congressman Everett Dirksen as his running mate. The election was in Truman's favor most of the race, but by the time election day rolled around, Wallace and Thurmond got enough votes to split the Democrats and elect Vandenburg as President.

A noticeably large number of the Presidents in this timeline have died in office. Perhaps the primary/convention system has a geriatric bias...

ELECTION 1952

President Vandenberg started off his term by doing one of Truman's campaign promises by desegregating the Armed Forces, allowing blacks and whites to serve together. Things seemed great for the President until his popularity went down as the People's Republic of China was founded and defeated the Republic of China, with them going into exile on Taiwan. The new Communist China soon after became allied in the Soviet Union. The USSR also achieved getting an atomic bomb, which solidified a Cold War between the US and USSR. The loss of China led to Vandenberg declaring war on North Korea and leading a UN coalition into the country. A year after this though, the President died of cancer. The new President Everett Dirksen would declare is candidacy for president with no challengers, running on a platform of ending the Korean War as soon as possible. The Democratic major Democratic candidates were  Governor Adlai Stevenson, Senator Estes Kefauver, and Senator Richard Russell. Stevenson won the nomination on the first ballot. The people were sympathetic to Dirksen, and with his profound oratory skills and a promise of peace, was elected president for his own term, alongside Senator Richard Nixon as his running mate.

ELECTION 1956

President Dirksen was able to live to his promises when he was able to get an armistice between the North and South Koreans within his first 6 months in office. Dirksen also backed the overthrow of Iranian leader Mohommed Mossadegh and put in place the Shah of Iran as its leader. Dirksen also nominated Earl Warren to the position of Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and Warren delivered on changes to civil rights in the case of Brown v. Board of Education, ending school segregation in the United States. a year later, Claudette Colvin and Rosa Parks would refuse to give up their seats on segregated busses in Montgomery, Alabama, leading to a successful bus boycott led by the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. By the end of 1955, President Dirksen announced he would not seek another term. Vice President Nixon was unanimously selected to be the nominee for president, with Senator Prescott Bush as his running . The Democratic race was between Senate Majority Leader Lyndon Johnson, Senator John F. Kennedy, Governor W. Averell Harrington, Congressman Franklin Roosevelt, Jr, and Governor Happy Chandler. The race was closely between Johnson and Kennedy, with Kennedy entering the brokered convention leading in delegates. Johnson used his influence to gain the nomination, and would nominate Kennedy as his running mate. Nixon hoped to ride the wave of peace and economic prosperity under the Dirksen administration, but the American people saw him as inexperienced, and he lost the race to Johnson and Kennedy.

ELECTION 1960

President Johnson wanted to continue the cause of civil rights, and signed into law the Civil Rights Act of 1957, the first civil rights bill since reconstruction. Vice President Kennedy also won a Pulitzer Prize for his book Profiles in Courage. The Cold War got more tense with the launch of Sputnik, the first artificial satellite, by the Soviet Union, marking the start of the Space Race. Alaska and Hawaii soon after became US states. Cuba's government was also overthrown by Communist leader Fidel Castro. The Republicans looked for a comeback against the powerful Johnson. Candidates included former VP Richard Nixon, Governor Nelson Rockefeller, Senator Barry Goldwater, former Ambassador and 1944 nominee Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr, former Governor Harold Stassen, and 1956 VP nominee Prescott Bush. The Republicans nominated Nixon for President and Lodge for VP, but the popularity of Johnson and Kennedy led to the second presidential loss in a row for Nixon.

ELECTION 1964

Johnson's second term began in complete failure with the Bay of Pigs invasion, in which US trained Cuban rebels landed at the Bay of Pigs to try and overthrow the Castro regime. The Soviets also put the first man into space, while the US followed a month later. Johnson pledged support for the space program, and promised the landing of man on the moon by the time 1970 came about. The construction of the Berlin Wall also began. Almost a year and a half later, the Soviets moved nuclear missiles into Cuba. This sparked a crisis that almost led to world war 3, but the influence of Kennedy on Johnson was greater than that of the generals, and Johnson and Soviet Premier Nikita Kruschev came up with an agreement. The next year, the civil rights movement came to DC with the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, in which Martin Luther King gave his famous "I have a Dream Speech". Traged soon struck however. On November 22, 1963, Johnson and Kennedy had been in Texas on a fundraising tour for the 64 campaign. In Dallas, there were 2  seprate assassnation plots. One was by the Mafia to take out Vice President Kennedy, which would send a message to Kennedy's brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy, to quit targeting the mob. The other was a crazed lone wolf, Lee Harvey Oswald, shooting from his workplace at the Texas School Book Depository in Dealey Plaza, to kill the President. Johnson was hit in the shoulder and the bullet passed through him and ended up paralyzing Texas Governor John Connally. The car sped off, taking Johnson out of further harms way, while the Mafia hitman was able to hit Kennedy, but due to there being the cars speeding away, shot the Vice President in the face, killing him instantly. Both suspects were apprehended and later executed.  This made Kennedy the first Vice President to be assassinated. After Johnson recovered, he would speak on the floor of a Joint Session of Congress, calling for passage of a civil rights bill, which was the cause Kennedy greatly championed. Johnson's polls skyrocketed, but he still recieved a Democratic challenger in segregationist Alabama Governor George Wallace. Johnson would win the nomination on the first ballot. The Republican race was initially led by Senator Barry Goldwater. Other candidates included Senator Prescott Bush, Governor Nelson Rockefeller, former ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr, Senator Margaret Chase Smith (the first woman to run for president for a major party), Senator Hiram Fong, and former Governor Harold Stassen. A late entry into the race was the de facto leader of the GOP, former VP Richard Nixon. Nixon would go on to win the nomination, and he was placed on the ballot with Senator Goldwater. The race was much closer than the last one, but Johnson came out on top, alongside the new Vice President Hubert Humphrey.

ELECTION 1968

Lyndon Johnson's third term started off strong with his advances in Civil Rights, and his Great Society programs. However these were overshadowed by the war in Vietnam, in which Johnson kept sending more and more troops, more and more people were dying, and the war was quickly being lost. Johnson ended up facing his former AG and now Senator Robert Kennedy (also the younger brother of the late VP Kennedy), Senator Eugene McCarthy, and DC Delegate Channing Phillips. Johnson started out as the strongest candidate, but Kennedy made a major jump in campaigning, and beat out Johnson for the nomination. On the Republican side, former VP Richard Nixon, Governor Nelson Rockefeller, Governor Ronald Reagan, Senator Ed Brooke, Governor George Romney, Senator Hiram Fong, and former Governor Harold Stassen. Nixon was the obvious frontrunner and ended up winning on the second ballot. Hiram Fong was his running mate. The race was about bringing an end to the Vietnam War. Kennedy was for an immediate pullout, while Nixon battled against the counterculture and called for an end with dignity. George Wallace ran as a third party candidate, and was successful in taking Southern votes from the Democrats. This lead to a Nixon victory, and made Hiram Fong the first Asian American Vice President.

ELECTION 1972

President Nixon's first move in office was announcing a withdrawl from Vietnam, saying he planned to start by bringing home 25,00 troops by the end of August. History was made in July 1969 as the first men were landed on the moon, both of them Americans. Nixon would also reform the draft. A year later in 1970, the Environmental Protection Agency would be created. Animosity in his own party began to form when Nixon describes himself as a Keynesian, believeing that more spending could help the economy. In response to this and normalizing relaations with Communist China, Congressman John Ashbrook would declare candidacy to run against Nixon. Pete McClosky and Harold Stassen would both declare as well, but Nixon won every states delegates at the convention, securing him and Vice President Fong the nomination. 

DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY

The Democrats experienced a primary full of delegates, as the assumed frontrunner and 1968 nominee Senator Robert Kennedy was assassinated in 1971. The major candidates in the race were former Vice President Hubert Humphrey, Senator Scoop Jackson, Congresswoman Shirley Chisolm, Governor George Wallace, and Senator George McGovern. The surprising thing was former President Lyndon Johnson coming out of retirement to try and win a 4th non consecutive term. The race was visibly between Humphrey and Johnson, but candidates such as Chisolm, Wallace, and Jackson all showed strength in different parts of the country. Wallace would end up being paralysed in an assassination attempt, so he would drop out, and change his racist ways by becoming a born again Christian. The convention wouldnt even be contested, as Humphrey would become the nominee on the first ballot, with Shirley Chisolm as his runnijng mate, making her the first African American woman and woman in general to be nominated for the Vice Presidency by a major party.

GENERAL ELECTION

Humphrey, without being on the Johnson ticket as he was in 64, was able to let his more liberal tendencies show, in comparison to the more moderate ones of Johnson. He wanted a full removal of troops from Vietnam and an expansion of social welfare. Nixon played to the conservative and moderate base as he had before, and this time it brought him an even bigger win. This was short lived however, as a year after his second term, in August 1974, he resigned as he was being threatened with impeachment over his role in the coverup of the Democratic Party Headquarters at the Watergate Hotel being broken into. This made Hiram Fong the first Asian American and first non white US president. He would appoint House Minority Leader Gerald Ford to be his VP, and Ford was sworn into office that December.

ELECTION 1976

After the turbulent days of the Watergate Scandal, President Hiram Fong pledged that he would not seek his own term as president in the next election, but would work on restoring dignity to the office of the presidency, as well as healing the nation He started this move by his scond day in office, by nominating one of the most ppopular politicians in the country, House Minority Leader Gerald Ford, to the Vice Presidency. However, the steady popularity dropped when after a month in office, he would pardon former President Nixon, a move att the time that was seen as preventing justice from being served. Fong would try to prevent the growing recession would be a temporary 5% tax hike, which also angered citizens. Fong would sign the Freedom of Information Act as well as the Privacy Act. Fong also created a presidential commission, headed by Vice President Ford, to look into CIA abuses. By early 1975, after a huge Democratic gain in the House and the Senate, Fong would announce a tax cut of 16 billion dollars. By the time primary season for 1976 rolled around, unemployment reached a high of 9.2%

REPUBLICAN PRIMARY

President Fong kept his promise by not declaring to run for a full term of his own. Instead, Fong would endorse Vice President Gerald Ford in the Race. Ford would not go unchallenged. His biggest opponent would be former California Governor Ronald Reagan. Reagan was a hardline conservative, and would say his campaign against Ford would be based on "morals, principles, and turning away from the dishonest days of the Nixon and Fong years." Ford also faced challenges from Senator Charles Mathias, Ambassador Elliot Richardson, and the Richard Nixon backed candidate former Governor Spiro Agnew. The only candidates with any real momentum were Reagan and Ford, and Reagan at points looked like he could win, but debate stumbles made him lose more and more popularity, and Ford would end up winning the nomination on the first ballot, naming Senator Bob Dole as his running mate.

The Democrats looked to use the Watergate scandal and Fong's dropping popularity to win as they had during the midterms. Major candidates included Senator Mo Udall, Senator Scoop Jackson, Governor George Wallace, and Senator Ted Kennedy. There was one thing they didnt count on though - the candidacy of Georgia Governor Jimmy Carter. Carter came from humble beginnings as a poor peanut farmer, and rose to prominence as a man that governed with morals and principles. Carter was the outsider candidate, and despite coming second in the delegate count to Mo Udall, would win the nomination, as the party saw his outsider status as a path to victory. Carter selected Senator Walter Mondale as his running mate. 

 

 

Democratic Primary Results

 

Udall - 1143

Carter - 1208 delegates

Jackson - 778

Wallace - 115

Kennedy - 65

Harris - 55

Byrd - 35

Shriver - 30

Brown - 18

GENERAL ELECTION 

The race was in a dead heat. Whether it was stumbles at speeches from Ford, or a controversial interview with Playboy Magazine by Carter, each candidate week by week held the lead. By the time of the debates however, Carter showed himself to be more presidential in every way, while Ford would keep making mistake after mistake in them. By election day, pundits gave Ford the upper hand in a toss up election. No one would have guessed the next night, Carter would win in a greater landslide than Nixon 4 years earlier.

ELECTION 1980

President Carter's first full day in office consisted of him pardoning all draft dodgers from the Vietnam War, something most conservatives found to be disgraceful. A few months later, he would call for more efforts in conservation of energy, admist a 4 years riddled by gas shortages. Carter said in his multiple addresses to the country that he wished to change the foreign policy from anti-communism to human rights, and he showed up on this by helpimg mediate the Camp David Accords between Israel and Egypt. He would also sign the SALT II treaty with the Soviet Union, reducing nuclear weapons between the two nations. He would also create the Department of Education. His popularity would keep dropping, and it would drop even more with the Iran Hostage Crisis, when the revolutionary government of Iran, led by Islamists, would influence students into storming the US embassy and holding diplomats hostage. 

 

DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY

President Carter was considering not running for a second term at first. But, he felt it was his duty to the country to do so. He would face challenges from Senator Ted Kennedy, Governor Jerry Brown, Senator WIlliam Proxmire, and Governor Hugh Carey. Many thought that Kennedy would be able to beat the president. His only popularity was solely from the fact he wasn't Carter, and his campaign would end up imploding, leaving Carter and Mondale as the nominees for the presidency. 

 

 

Democratic Primary Results

 

Carter - 2398 delegates

Kennedy - 797

Proxmire - 102

Carey - 44

 

REPUBLICAN PRIMARY

Former Governor Ronald Reagan was seen as the frontrunner for the presidency and the Republican nominee since the 1978 midterm elections. His conservative movement had gained a lot of steam since the failure of his 1976 run. Reagan would face opponents including former Vice President Gerald Ford (seen as the only candidate that could beat Reagan by the pundits), Senate Majority Leader Howard Baker, former Texas Governor and Treasury Secretary John Connally, and 1976 Vice Presidential nominee Bob Dole. The second most popular candidate would turn out to be former Congressman, Secretary of State, GOP Chairman, Ambassador to the UN, and CIA Director George Bush, the son of former presidential candidate and VP nominee the late senator Prescott Bush. As the primary went on, Bush's popularity would drop behind that of Baker, COnnally, and former Ambassador Ben Fernandez. Reagan would win the nomination, and name Bush as his running mate. Congressman John ANderson ran and lost in this primary, and would go on to run as an independent cnadidate.

 

Republican Primary Results

 

Reagan - 1150 delegates

Baker - 275

Connally - 215

Bush - 116

Anderson - 75

Dole - 64

Ford - 50

Crane - 29

Fernandez - 25

 

GENERAL ELECTION 

President Carter knew that Ronald Reagan could very well beat him, as his popularity was the lowest of any president since Truman in 1945. Carter attempted a military evacuation of the hostages in Iran, but it failed. Reagan would campaign on this, as well as other Carter policy, by his famous ddebate statement of "Are you better off now than you were 4 years ago?". The American people sided heavily with the hope, optimism, and conservatism that Reagan put off, and elected him president in a 492-46 landslide. Reagan would become the oldest president, beating out Thomas Jefferson for that record by 2 months.

ELECTION 1984

An hour after Reagan was inaugurated, the Iran hostages were set free and returned home to the United States. Two months after that, Reagan would survive an assassination attempt, which would send his approval ratings skyrocketing. Reagan would continue his term by proposing tax and budget cuts, as well as nominating Sandra Day O'Connor to be the first woman to sit on the Supreme Court. Military budgets were expanded however, and by 1984, tensions with the Soviet Union were their highest since the Cuban Missile Crisis. 


REPUBLICAN PRIMARY

President Reagan's strongest challenger came from one of his first supporters, Congressman Ron Paul of Texas. Congressman Paul actively campaigned for Reagan in 76 and 80, because of the policies of reducing government, cutting taxes, and budget cuts. The reality of Reagan boosting budgets and the size of government made Paul the biggest challenger. Other candidates included Ambassador Ben Fernandez, former Governor Harold Stassen, and former Congressman and 1980 Independent candidate John Anderson. Iowa was a dead heat between Reagan and Paul, and as Paul's numbers got higher and higher there, they also would in New Hampshire and other early primary states, posing a true threat to the president's chances at renomination. This libertarian fire was put out however, as Reagan would barely win Iowa, and would continue there on to win every primary contest by a huge margin. Anderson would once again declare an independent candidacy. 

 

 

Republican Primary Results

 

Reagan - 1940 delegates

Paul - 50

Fernandez - 10

Stassen - 9

Anderson - 1

 

DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY

Former President Carter made a statement in early 1982, saying that he would be open to running again for the presidency in the future, also said he would wait out 1984, giving platform to new candidates and ideas. Former Vice President Walter Mondale was the early favorite, as were Colorado Senator Gary Hart, and feminist New York Congresswoman Geraldine Ferraro. Other candidates included Senator Ted Kennedy, former astronaut and Ohio Senator John Glenn, Reverend Jesse Jackson, and former Governor Jerry Brown. The race was hotly contested, as it narrowed between establishment figure Mondale and the young newcomer Hart. By the time the primaries were over, Mondale would come out on top with only 50 more delegates than needed to be nominated on the first ballot. He would name Jesse Jackson to be his running mate, making Jackson the first black man and second black person overall to be nominated on the Democratic ticket for VP. 

 

 

Democratic Primary Results

 

Mondale - 1060 delegates

Hart - 548

Kennedy - 167

Ferraro - 118

Jackson - 83

Glenn - 35

Brown - 11

GENERAL ELECTION

Ronald Reagan at first looked like he could lose the nomination. Most were fearing that his advanced age could hinder him from being president, as at multiple campaign events he seemed dazed and out of place. Mondale played this to his advantage, but when Reagan made a comment about his opponent's "Youth and Inexperience", voters flocked back to Reagan. The liberal campaign would after that statement drop in the polls, and Reagan would win the presidency in yet another landslide victory.

ELECTION 1988

Ronald Reagan's second term consisted of more foreign policy than anything else, with him working alongside Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev, to try and ease the tension between the two nations, even though the Soviet system was starting to crack while Gorbachev was implementing reform. Reagan would put an embargo on Nicaragua. The Nicaraguans became the center of attention when news broke of the Iran Contra Scandal, where members of Reagan's administration were selling arms to Iran to fund Contra rebels in Nicaragua. this led to a decrease in Reagan's popularity, and both houses of Congress would be won by the Democrats in the midterms. Reagan also banned foreign aid from being used to fund abortions overseas. 

 

REPUBLICAN PRIMARY

President Reagan was ambiguous about running for a third term, something most pundits thought he could win. In a televised address to the country, he would announce that he would not be seeking a third term because of his age, and he would later endorse Vice President George Bush in the primary. The first candidate to declare to run was former Congressman Ron Paul, the runner up in 1984. He would end up pulling out of the GOP primary early on and running in the Libertarian race. He would still end up with 5 delegates at the convention. Republican cnadidates would include televangelist Pat Robertson, 1976 Vice Presidential nominee Bob Dole, Congressman Jack Kemp, former Governor Harold Stassen, and businessman Donald Trump. Most thought this would be an easy race, but Dole, Robertson, and Trump tailed close behind him. Bush was portrayed by his opponents as weak, and his debate preformances showed. Donald Trump would drop out in late May to run an independent race, with WWF CEO Vince McMahon as his running mate.  Bush would end up winning the most delegates, but the convention was contested, and the nomination in a shocking turn would nominate Bob Dole (who had the third highest number of delegates) for president, and Indiana Senator Dan Quayle as his running mate. 

 

Republican Primary Results

 

Bush - 464

Robertson - 423 

Dole - 387 delegates

Kemp - 377

Trump - 355

Stassen - 7 

Paul - 5

 

DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY

The early frontrunner in the Democratic race was fromer President Jimmy Carter, who had been hinting at a run since 1985. Carter would face challenges from Massachusetts Governor Mike Dukakis, Senator Ted Kennedy, Senator Joe Biden, Senator Gary Hart, Senator Al Gore, Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton, State Representative and KKK Grand Wizard David Duke, 1984 Vice Presidential Nominee Jesse Jackson, former Governor Jerry Brown, and socialist activist Lyndon LaRouche. Carter stayed at the top of the polls for a while, but his record as president was used against him by his 3 major opponents Kennedy, Dukakis, and Gore. Dukakis and Kennedy would go forward ahead of Carter in the race, and Dukakis would win the nomination, with Texas Senator Lloyd Bentsen as his running mate. David Duke would form a Populist Party and run third party. 

 

Democratic Primary Results

 

Dukakis - 1474 delegates

Kennedy - 253

Carter - 146

Gore - 64

Hart - 28

Jackson - 19

Clinton - 13

LaRouche - 10

Brown - 6

Duke - 3

 

LIBERTARIAN PRIMARY

The Libertarians were expecting to nominate Native American activist Russell Means to be their nominee, as nobody had challeneged him. That changed when Ron Paul left the GOP race for the LP. This caused controversy in the party, but they would chose him over Means because of his being in Congress. Paul would name Means as his running mate.

 

Libertarian Primary Results

 

Paul - 1322 delegates

Means - 696

 

GENERAL ELECTION

Dole would ride the Reagan revolution as he campaigned on continuing the Reagan legacy. Dukakis would call for more liberal changes to society. Donald Trump was a centrist, and his lead in the northeast shocked many, as did his debate performances. Dukakis stabbed himself in a debate when he came out against the death penalty, even if a scenario was that his wife were raped and murdered. Trump being in the debates was shocking enough, as there has never been a third candidate in one before. Election day came and went, and Dole won handily. The Democrats would blame Trump for the loss, as his winning of New York and coming in a close second in every New England state, as well as Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, and Illinois took votes from mainly on the fence and conservative Dems.

ELECTION 1992

President Dole's first moves in office included a bail out plan and a temporary semi auto rifle ban. Dole would also extremely harshly condemn the massacres in China's Tiannamen Square. By the end of his first year in office, the Berlin Wall would fall, marking a end of Communist rule in East Germany, and creating a path towards unification. Dole rose the minnimum wage to $4.25, continue meetings with Gorbachev, and expand the drug war. The Soviet Union would collapse a year later, ending the Cold War. In 1991, Dole responded to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait with military force. Kuwait was liberated, but Dole decided to take out Saddam Hussein, the Dictator of Iraq who was formerly a US ally. Saddam was captured, but occupation of Iraq was very bloody and violent, leading to the deaths of many US troops and Iraqi civillians. Saddam was held in the Guantamano Bay Prison during the occupation. Dole lost high amounts of popularity. 

REPUBLICAN PRIMARY

Dole's unpopularity led to him facing a challenges in the Republican Primary. The candidates included former VP George Bush, former Congressman Ron Paul (who recently rejoined the GOP), Harold Stassen, and 1988 Populist Party nominee David Duke. Bush campaigned on seeking peace with Saddam, and a smart exit strategy, to make it out of Iraq within a year. Bush would be the biggest challenger to Dole, and would dominate in polls and the primaries, winning all but 4. Dole would win 3 primaries, and Stassen won New Hampshire. Bush easily won the nomination on the first ballot, and kept Vice President Quayle as his running mate. Bob Dole became the second president in history to lose the presidency in a primary, and the first since Lyndon Johnson in 1968.

 

Republican Primary Results

 

Bush - 1779 delegates

Dole - 129

Stassen - 5 

Paul - 2

Duke - 1

 

DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY

The Democratic race for the presidency was a wide field. The first two candidates to declare for the race were 1988 nominee Mike Dukakis, and former President Jimmy Carter. They would lead the race early on, Dukakis with the major edge at 40%. slowly, more candidates would enter the race, including Governor Bill Clinton of Arkansas, Senator Joe Biden, Senator Al Gore, 1968 candidate for Vice President George McGovern, former Senator Eugene McCarthy, former Senator Paul Tsongas, and Governor Mario Cuomo of New York. The polls would soon turn into a complete mess, leaving the frontrunner undetermined, most thinking it would be the winner of the Iowa caucuses. Instead, the frontrunners came in Iowa, those being first place winner Jimmy Carter, and second place making an extreme comeback Bill Clinton. Clinton was considered center leaning and anti establishment, as the machine of the party rallied behind Carter. Each race got extremely close, if one came in first, the other came in second. In the end, the convention was very contested, with  Clinton going in on top of the polls and with 18 less delegates than Carter. Carter would win the nomination on the 5th ballot, not without opposition, as the Clinton delegates, including the entire state of Arkansas, would walk out of the convention. To appease the Clintonites in the party, Carter would put up Senator Gore to be his running mate. Gore was a young baby boomer, who was seen as a moderate. 

 

 

Democratic Primary Results

 

Carter - 1252

Clinton - 1234

Dukakis - 295

Brown - 209

Gore - 192

Tsongas - 178

McGovern - 126

Harkin - 49

Cuomo - 37

Wilder - 6

 

GENERAL ELECTION

While the major parties were busy getting themselves a nominee, businessman Ross Perot was gearing up an independent run of his own. He ran on a highly populist platform, which included bringing the troops home , pulling out of trade deals like NAFTA, and a progressive income tax taxing rich people more. The early start for Perot led to him gaining more and more popularity, and becoming a major contender for the presidency. The debates between the three sealed the deal, with Carter stating that the Republicans caused the mess in Iraq, and that his previous experience in Middle Eastern affairs (specifically the Camp David Accords) would help him create a lasting peace between Saddam, the US, and other countries in the region. His expert performances, coupled with the failures of the incumbent GOP president, led to Carter winning the election, and becoming the 3rd president to serve non-consecutive terms (the other two being Henry Clay and Theodore Roosevelt).

ELECTION 1996

On the second day of Jimmy Carter's second term, he became the first president since FDR to visit Guantamano Bay, where he personally would sit down with Saddam Hussein and discuss peace in the Middle East. Months of peace talks would ensue, and on July 21st, 1995, an agreement was finally settled between the United States, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait in Atlanta, Georgia. On Feburary 23rd,  1993, a car bomb was set off underneath the World Trade Center in NYC. An assassination plot against former President Bob Dole was uncovered by the US government, which was organized by Iraqi intelligence services. By reccomendation of his defense secretary, Carter would launch missiles to destroy the Iraqi intelligence building. Saddam wouldnt launch a counter attack. President Carter was looking to reform the healthcare system, and he put Vice President Gore and Arkansas First Lady Hillary Clinton in charge of a committee to draft a new system. Clintoncare (as it was called in the press) was killed in Congress, and would lead to a huge victory for the Republicans in the 1994 midterms, giving control of the House to the GOP. Carter would also become the first US President to visit North Korea, and made an announcement for a treaty between the two countries. The death of Kim in 1994 and his son, Kim Jong Il's rise to power, left the treaty a failure. In 1995, a deadly terror attack in Oklahoma City left 168 people dead and a building destroyed by a car bomb. 

DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY

Through what was considered a moderately successful presidency, Carter cited age and willingness to settle down in Atlanta with his wife and to focus on humanitarian aid, would announce that he would not seek a third term. Al Gore would declare his candidacy, and the endorsement of Governor Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary would lead to Gore uniting the Democratic Party. Socialist activist Lyndon LaRouche would attempt a run, but it was an utter failure. Senator Joe Biden of Delaware was nominated to be the next Vice President. 

 

Democratic Primary Results

 

Gore - 3921 delegates

LaRouche - 26

 

REPUBLICAN PRIMARY

The Republican Party leadership wanted to run former President Dole, but Dole would announce his intention not to run and to retire in 1993 when he didnt run for his old senate seat as most expected him to do. There were only 4 candidates in the race, as most expected Gore to win the presidency due to the massive popularity of Carter by the end of his term.Those 4 were former Vice President Dan Quayle, magazine publisher Steve Forbes, former US ambassador to the UNESCO Alan Keyes, and conservative columnist and former advisor to Presidents Nixon, Fong and Reagan, Pat Buchanan. Quayle would come out winning the most contests, and would have the most delegates going into the broken convention. Keyes would come in last in delegate count, and would have his delegates vote Buchanan, leading to a 3 ballot contest between Buchanan and Quayle. As Forbes didnt endorse a candidate, his delegates were free to vote their personal choice, and they selected Pat Buchanan to be the nominee for president. The VP nomination wasnt without controversy either, as Buchanan selected former congressman and 3 time presidential candidate Ron Paul to be his VP. As Paul had just won a primary for his old seat in congress, he was forced to drop out of that race, and his fellow libertarian republican and biggest backer, baseball superstar Nolan Ryan, was selected to replace him on that ticket, and would end up winning that race in a landslide. 

 

Republican Primary Results

 

Quayle - 830

Forbes - 562

Buchanan - 313 delegates

Keyes - 254

GENERAL ELECTION

Gore would continue his high polls and approval ratings going into the general election season. He was leaps and bounds ahead of Buchanan, who was considered by liberals to be a racist and establishment Republicans as insane. However, him and Paul were greatly popular in the grassroots. The third candiate in the race was once again Ross Perot, who founded the Reform Party two years before, and didnt change any of his positions from 1992. He was joined on the ticket by 1988 Republican/Independent candidate businessman Donald Trump of New York. The popularity of Perot's positions and Trump's personality led to the shocking win of 7 states and 93 electoral votes. This outstanding performance would lead the race for the presidency to Congress. Both Houses were controlled by the GOP, and Pat Buchanan controversially became the 39th President, the first Catholic President, and the first president elected by the House since Abraham Lincoln in 1860 and the first to lose the popular vote and still become president since Everett Dirksen in 1952.

ELECTION 1996

On the second day of Jimmy Carter's second term, he became the first president since FDR to visit Guantamano Bay, where he personally would sit down with Saddam Hussein and discuss peace in the Middle East. Months of peace talks would ensue, and on July 21st, 1995, an agreement was finally settled between the United States, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait in Atlanta, Georgia. On Feburary 23rd,  1993, a car bomb was set off underneath the World Trade Center in NYC. An assassination plot against former President Bob Dole was uncovered by the US government, which was organized by Iraqi intelligence services. By reccomendation of his defense secretary, Carter would launch missiles to destroy the Iraqi intelligence building. Saddam wouldnt launch a counter attack. President Carter was looking to reform the healthcare system, and he put Vice President Gore and Arkansas First Lady Hillary Clinton in charge of a committee to draft a new system. Clintoncare (as it was called in the press) was killed in Congress, and would lead to a huge victory for the Republicans in the 1994 midterms, giving control of the House to the GOP. Carter would also become the first US President to visit North Korea, and made an announcement for a treaty between the two countries. The death of Kim in 1994 and his son, Kim Jong Il's rise to power, left the treaty a failure. In 1995, a deadly terror attack in Oklahoma City left 168 people dead and a building destroyed by a car bomb. 

DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY

Through what was considered a moderately successful presidency, Carter cited age and willingness to settle down in Atlanta with his wife and to focus on humanitarian aid, would announce that he would not seek a third term. Al Gore would declare his candidacy, and the endorsement of Governor Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary would lead to Gore uniting the Democratic Party. Socialist activist Lyndon LaRouche would attempt a run, but it was an utter failure. Senator Joe Biden of Delaware was nominated to be the next Vice President. 

 

 

Democratic Primary Results

 

Gore - 3921 delegates

LaRouche - 26

 

REPUBLICAN PRIMARY

The Republican Party leadership wanted to run former President Dole, but Dole would announce his intention not to run and to retire in 1993 when he didnt run for his old senate seat as most expected him to do. There were only 4 candidates in the race, as most expected Gore to win the presidency due to the massive popularity of Carter by the end of his term.Those 4 were former Vice President Dan Quayle, magazine publisher Steve Forbes, former US ambassador to the UNESCO Alan Keyes, and conservative columnist and former advisor to Presidents Nixon, Fong and Reagan, Pat Buchanan. Quayle would come out winning the most contests, and would have the most delegates going into the broken convention. Keyes would come in last in delegate count, and would have his delegates vote Buchanan, leading to a 3 ballot contest between Buchanan and Quayle. As Forbes didnt endorse a candidate, his delegates were free to vote their personal choice, and they selected Pat Buchanan to be the nominee for president. The VP nomination wasnt without controversy either, as Buchanan selected former congressman and 3 time presidential candidate Ron Paul to be his VP. As Paul had just won a primary for his old seat in congress, he was forced to drop out of that race, and his fellow libertarian republican and biggest backer, baseball superstar Nolan Ryan, was selected to replace him on that ticket, and would end up winning that race in a landslide. 

 

 

Republican Primary Results

 

Quayle - 830

Forbes - 562

Buchanan - 313 delegates

Keyes - 254

GENERAL ELECTION

Gore would continue his high polls and approval ratings going into the general election season. He was leaps and bounds ahead of Buchanan, who was considered by liberals to be a racist and establishment Republicans as insane. However, him and Paul were greatly popular in the grassroots. The third candiate in the race was once again Ross Perot, who founded the Reform Party two years before, and didnt change any of his positions from 1992. He was joined on the ticket by 1988 Republican/Independent candidate businessman Donald Trump of New York. The popularity of Perot's positions and Trump's personality led to the shocking win of 7 states and 93 electoral votes. This outstanding performance would lead the race for the presidency to Congress. Both Houses were controlled by the GOP, and Pat Buchanan controversially became the 39th President, the first Catholic President, and the first president elected by the House since Abraham Lincoln in 1860 and the first to lose the popular vote and still become president since Everett Dirksen in 1952.

What a monstrous pair! The U.S. will quickly become unlivable to 85% (at least) of it's inhabitants with those two heading the executive. Mass population drop from the cutting of numerous government policies that prevent death by negligence, lack of standards, corporate abuse, starvation due to cut jobs by corporate impunity and lack of any social safety net for those losing their jobs through no fault of their, starvation and malnourishment by wage slaves whose wages are cut so deep they sustain a living due to thrashing of unions and labour laws, abolishment of Federal aid to natural disasters, even if State governments are incapable of dealing with it, proliferation of hate crimes when such a label is utterly abolished, and increase in use of the death penalty, including lack of burden of evidence and due process requirements for minorities, and no doubt the endless war Buchanan will declare abroad and the young men and people who will die because of them - Paul would likely end the wars if we took over, but not the rest (essentially almost every protection against unnecessary death debated in modern politics except preventing abortions, which alone will somehow absolve them of the stain of being harbingers of mass and by some defenders of life in their followers minds) should be taken into account for the next decade in terms of declining numbers of eligible voters from RL numbers.

ELECTION 2000

President Pat Buchanan started his presidency as one of the least liked people in America. Throughout the campaign trail, he was accused of facism, racism, sexism, and homophobia. This would lead to massive demonstrations against him throughout the country. Much of Buchanan's policy wouldnt get passed, almost all his vetos were overturned, but the biggest success of his presidency was a flat tax bill, which put the income tax down to 15% across the board. On foreign policy, Buchanan opted to stay out of events around the world and focused at home. Democrats and Repulicans wanted him impeached for breaking with the status quo, and even his own Vice President, Ron Paul, would end up turning his back on the president because of social issues.  By 1999, Buchanan would leave the Republican Party and become a member of Ross Perot's Reform Party, and in a stump speech calling out the rise of neo-conservatism in the GOP, calling it a "crack house" and declaring his re-election campaign as a Reformer. 

REPUBLICAN PRIMARY

With Buchanan leaving the party, most expected Vice President Paul to run for the presidency. Paul would decline, saying that the failures of the current administration would move to him, and it would insure a victory for statists in the upcoming election. This left this as a fully open election. Many Republican candidates would declare. The clear frontrunners would shape out to be Governor George W Bush of Texas (son of former Vice President Bush), Senator John McCain, and former First Lady Elizabeth Dole. Other major candidates included former Vice PResident Dan Quayle, publisher Steve Forbes (who would get the support of Vice PResident Paul), former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, former HUD Secretary Jack Kemp, and New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani. Bush would gain the upper hand in the primary and would win the race, picking out Elizabeth Dole to be his running mate, making her the first woman to be nominated on a Republican ticket.

 

Republican Primary Results

 

Bush - 1261 delegates

McCain - 388

Dole - 95

Gingrich - 63

Quayle - 51

Kemp - 34

Giuliani - 20

Forbes - 17

Cain - 9 

Huckabee - 7

Keyes - 6

Pataki - 3

Hatch - 2

Bauer - 2

Kasich - 1

 

DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY

The clear frontrunner in the Democratic race was former Vice President and 1996 nominee Al Gore. Some were considering not even running against him in the race. This changed when Senator Ted Kennedy, a longtime leader of the Democratic establishment and brother to John F. Kennedy and Robert Kennedy, declared his intent to run. This inspired many more candidates to enter the race, including former First Lady of Arkansas and now Senator Hillary Clinton, 1996 VP nominee Joe Biden, actor Warren Beatty, former Senator Bill Bradley, and Reverend Jesse Jackson. The race was a dead heat between Kennedy and Gore, who went on massive smear campaigns against each other, even with Kennedy calling Gore "the most power hungry, dishonest man to ever seek the presidency.". The convention would be contested, but a shocking coalition grew out of opposition to the negaivity of the front runners, and out of no where Joe Biden became the Democratic Nominee, and he named Senator Clinton to be on the ticket, guaraanteeing that the next Vice PResident would be the first woman to hold the position. 

 

Democratic Primary Results

 

Gore - 1823

Kennedy - 863

Biden - 291 delegates

Beatty - 261

Clinton - 226

Graham - 164

Jackson - 147

Lieberman - 54

Bradley - 49

Dean - 47

Kerry - 22

 

REFORM PRIMARY

The Reform nomination was expected to go straight to Donald Trump, the 1996 nominee, businessman, 1988 independent candidate, and media personality. This changed however as President Buchanan would enter the primary, bringing his grassroots support with him. In a very close primary race, Donald Trump would become the nominee. However, Buchanan supporters managed to get Buchanan named VP against Trump's wishes, marking the beginning of the end for the Reform Party. 

 

GENERAL ELECTION

The election between Bush and Biden was considered to be a referendum on the Buchanan presidency. Bush would campaign on a platform of compassionate conservatism and denouncing the Buchanan Administration, while Biden was campaigning that the Republicans would give the same policy no matter who was the president. In firey debates, Bush would win 2 out of the 3 debates, while Dole would beat Clinton in the VP debates. The polls were showing Bush with the edge in a toss up election, but Joe Biden would pull through and be elected President, while Hillary Clinton became the first female VP.

This is the first time since 1964 that Ohio hasn't voted for the president. It's strange how that is eerily similar to real life, except that streak still hasn't been broken OTL but started one election earlier in JFK vs Nixon :P 

Iowa still hasn't been wrong in this timeline since 1960.

ELECTION 2004

President Biden would start his term by changing the tax code to a progressive tax, rather than the flat 15% system under President Buchanan. Biden planned to put focus on issues such as domestic policy, but on September 11, 2001, terrorists hijacked 4 planes, crashing 2 into the World Trade Center and destoying it in NYC, on crashed into the Pentagon in DC< and another was crashed by passengers attempting to overpower the hicjackers in Pennsylvania. Almost 3000 people would die. President Biden would soon declare war on Afghanistan, for harboring Osama Bin Laden, the leader of the al-Qaeda terror group that committed the attack. He would also sign into law the PATRIOT Act, a bill to strengthen law enforcement to fight terror, but criticized by few as a danger to civil liberties. In 2002, Biden would sign the bipartisan No Child Left Behind bill. Intelligence breifs would pull Biden's attention away from trying to balance a wartime presidency alongside a domestic one, as reports would show that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and possible ties to al-Qaeda and 9/11. Although he wouldnt get the support of the UN, his lobbying to members of congress, alongside Vice President Clinton, would authorise Operation Iraqi Freedom. Hussein would be killed in the initial attacks, and the US occupation and search of WMDs would begin. As in 1991, Saddam loyalists, alongside al-Qaeda, would form an insurgency against the American forces. Despite the finding that Iraq had no WMDs and the occupation looked to be long term, President Biden would not be challenged for re-election in his own party. 

REPUBLICAN PRIMARY

The Republican Party, ever since the hotly contested recounts in New Hampshire, would attempt a "Draft W" campaign to get George W Bush to run again for the presidency. Although if recounts continued and Bush would have won in 2000 making him a strong candidate, Bush would decline, opting to retire completely from politics anad not running for any office in 2002. General Colin Powell would declare and quickly become a frontrunner. He campaigned on using the UN for help on rebuilding Iraq. Senator John McCain, Powell's biggest rival, took a position on the war like Biden, a business as usual one. Senator Lincoln Chafee and former Vice President Ron Paul would both run on fully withdrawing from Iraq. Powell would gain more support from the GOP, and would win all but 4 primary contests, McCain winning North Dakota and Arizona, and Chafee winning New Hampshire and South Carolina. Powell would choose his chief opponent, John McCain, to be his running mate. 

 

Republican Primary Results

 

Powell - 2325 delegates

McCain - 122

Chafee - 54

Paul - 1

 

GENERAL ELECTION

President Biden kept dropping in popularity, as Powell's promise to serve a single term, as well as his approach to pulling out of Iraq, was more appealing to the American public. The only thing that hurt and helped the candidates were their VP candidates. Clinton helped an abysmal Biden campaign with her popularity, while McCain's warmongering hurt the responsibilty theme of Powell. After close polls throughout the race, Powell would come up on top over Biden, becoming the first black president.
