has anyone had a tied state?

Hmm...thats an interesting situation, I wonder what would happen in terms of who the game gave the EV's to if there were a tie. The chances of that happening is about 1 in 100000000000000 so who knows if we'll ever get the chance to find out..although I suppose there would be a way to edit the electoral trends to where it would be more likely to come out a tie.

The sad thing is, this scenario is a very realistic one IRL and ppl support the EC regardless.

I hate the E.C. and I hate FPTP.

The only system that's shittier is Hong Kong's, because the CCP and corporate interests pack the legislature with pro-China rightists (You'd have to understand my politics and the way I analyse East Asia to understand why I see theCCP and its allies as being the political right.) against the Democratic will of the people, who only elect half the legislature but voted in liberal and socialist anti-China parties in  a landslide, in spite of massive vote fraud by CCP cronies and corporate thugs.

Yes, and arresting Democratic Party politicians on the mainland on trumped up charges. Very naughty.

But the dam is cracking, the dam is cracking and they won't be able to keep a lid on it all forever..... :angry:

I once lost CT, and thus the election, by only 14 votes as Bush is the 2004.

In the 1992, I lost West Virginia, and thus the election, as Bush again by only 15 votes.

Other than that, I have won or lost states several times with fewer than 50 votes to decide the election.

Hoynes got more than Russell? BLASPHEMY!

Oh well, all that matters is that Santos won. Who else can't wait for the next season?

This is the closest I've ever seen California:

Tommy Thompson ® vs Barbara Boxer (D) vs Michael Badnarik (L) vs Jim Gilchrist (CST)

A difference of about .0044%

Nation-wide Thompson crushed Boxer 50%-45%, Gilchrist got 3% and Badnarik got over 1%.
