Well, still a good outcome. Technically, if it were a college level debate, Obama would probably lose. He would win in speaker points (persuasivness, delivery,) but he would lose the arguments. Huntsm

He's still notably short of Diefenbaker in 1958 and Mulroney in 1984 - the two biggest majority governments elected in Canadian history.

You're right. Harper did have the longest minority government though 😛

Thanks :) !

This time we can't see I haven't unseated Trudeau 😛

Mount Royal constituency in Canada's Federal elections (which three Liberal PM's, including both Trudeaus, and a number of prominent Liberal Cabinet Ministers, have held in various Federal elections) is SO powerfully Liberal in electoral support and orientation, it's not even funny. In fact, it's a political cliché. Real Caouette, the former leader of the right-wing Railliement Creditiste from 1958-1971, and then, after the defeat of right-wing Albert Social Credit Association Premier of Alberta Earnest Manning, who had been an immensely powerful influence on the Federal Party even from the Premier's office, and personally prevented any Federal party leader who was not from Western Canada from being chosen, the leader of the right-wing Social Credit Party of Canada until his (Caouette's) retirement in 1976, once cynically and caustically said that the Mount Royal constituency was so powerfully Liberal you could run a Canada Post mailbox there and still, because they're red (the party colour of the Liberal Party of Canada).

Just bought the President Infinity and Congress Infinity bundle Friday night, and did a test run of 2020 playing as President Trump. Ended up losing to Joe Biden (and lost some normally safe GOP states such as Texas in the process)

Also tried out the 1994 House and Senate races playing as the Republicans in both. As in real life, was able to flip the House to the GOP; but the best I could muster in the Senate was a draw.

I played as Buttigieg and started on September 25th, 2019. My vice presidential candidate was Elizabeth Warren and my high score was exactly 130 (I played on hard.). These were my results.

My first EVER real game after reading strategies on this game. 

Medium difficulty, 2020 election started in the Primaries.

Results

Won the overall vote with more than 15 percentage points. 

But only won 361 EVs

Playing as whom? A vital piece of data omitted...

I would assume Biden since he says,

"Won the overall vote with more than 15%."

And 

"But only won 361 electoral votes"

Might be wrong though  😕

Had to play as the Republicans once. To my surprise Amy Koubacar went off to win in a nail-biter closer than the Clinton vs Obama primary. She chose Yang as VP! Kloubacar is not a weak candidate, indeed she is a good all-rounder and centrist as Biden.  The only relevant area I could attack Kloubacar was in free trade, which I did.

It was a toss-up before the election, but I won quite overwhelmingly. Had 4 scandals and saved my ad money for the last week to break Kloubacars momentum to -6 while mine was +24. As a result the win came in quite easy, I almost won New York and Oregon. 

I "only" won 343 electoral votes, but the margin of 9.5 percentage points nationally speaks for itself. I have a takeaway that its easier to play as the Democrats, and more difficult to play as the Republicans in the general eleciton.

Find 1 mistake! (hint: not 2)

Did you get it? Its the 1980 election, Reagan vs incumbent Carter

I wanted to see if I could out-do Reagans performance and win every state. Because DC is almost like a joke, it starts off something like 80 % democratic and its not even a proper state.

Therefore I tried to win all actual states, but only Rhode Island deferred to Carter... who the hell are these people anyway ... Better just un-state them in this timeline! 😆

I'm not sure I could give you the answer you desire, because I'm far from a fan of Reagan. :P

Say what you about Reagan, will but there can hardly be any candidate in Presidential history that could transcend the political spectrum from Democrats to Republicans.

I'm also not a fan of the political Duopoly.

It would be more fun if there were 3 big parties in the game. But now it can sometimes get to a blowout in the general election. Sometimes the primary is more fun than the general election in this game.

Tried to reverse my dominating win as Reagan earlier, now by playing as Carter in the same scenario.

The primaries were a piece of cake. Kennedy ran a terrible campaign despite leading from the get-go! I won every state and promptly prepared for the general election.

That's where things got tough! The game started as the republicans leading to me, and for good reason. I had built up my campain and my character, but despite several huge scandals I released against (5 in fact) Reagean, he still won relatively easily. Despite me also winning both debates and using my PIP to snatch up all endorsers, including the Republican one.

The results are as follows. To win I'd need a swing of 2.3 percent of the voters FROM the GOP to me. That would secure Pennsylvania as the tipping point state. Alas, finally I felt really challenged in this game for the first time.
