    2052 Presidential election

    [​IMG]

    Gov. Luis Juarez (DG-TX)/Rep. Aja Molina (DG-CA) - 56.2%
    Sen. Jordan Dunn (R-KS)/Gov. John Gore (R-AZ) - 40.9%
    Others (Libertarian, Mormon, True Democratic) - 2.9%

    Although it seemed like the Democratic-Green Party was falling apart, 39 year old Hispanic Governor Luis Juarez of Texas proved to be a strong candidate and unified the party around him. The Republican primaries were close. Moderate New York Governor Robert "Bob" Baker narrowly lost to Populist Kansas Senator Jordan Dunn. Baker ended up endorsing Juarez just days before the election, saying Dunn was "out of touch with the needs of the American people." This Republican rift led to a landslide win for the Democratic-Green Party. The True Democratic Party fell from 14.7% to just 0.9% while the Mormon Party came in 2nd place in Utah yet again. It was certainly a crazy year for the Republicans.

    I don't know why, but most of my re-alignment maps end up looking like some variation on Baker vs Manchin.

    Time-travelling political God William Rutherford replaces LBJ as the Democratic nominee in 1964 and wins all 50 states.

    Yes, even the flawless, beautiful, perfect God that is William J. Rutherford couldn't flip NE-3.

    Props on making it look futuristic and not just the standard "inevitable realignment".

    This is funny! I like that you used my character, for an election that I have considerable interest in.

    Here is the updated congressional districts map for the Rutherford scenario. By my best reckoning, Rutherford wins 406 districts to Trump's 29. He carries 93% of all congressional districts. WV-03 is Rutherford's closest win in the country; he carries it with a narrow plurality. His best districts are probably the ones in New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, and other urban centers. Trump's best district is TX-13 (Texas Panhandle), followed by the 3rd district of Nebraska and the 1st district of Kansas. Tex Arkana, is this map accurate? :

    Republicans become more moderate socially but VERY libertarian and market based in the vain of Musk or Theil. Democrats on the other hand are populists and anti elitists and truly compose a rainbow coalition of the poor and working classes. Republicans don't want to pay / waste time saving costal cities from climate change or revitalize their industry of infustrcture in general. They argue it would be better to resettle people in new development in safer areas and to do so via the free market. Democrats scream that the republicans want to leave the people to drownd in the next hurricane and say the lack of updated mass transit has caused needless deaths in the now almost seasonal Fall evacuation orders.

    Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota are not libertarian leaning states.

    And west virgina used to be a democratic stronghold and California was fertile ground for neoliberal conservativeism but things change and I guess not so much libertarian or at lest in contrast to today where many who are against government intervention do so under the guise of racial resentment, the future republicans are pragmatic and much more rational ( at lest in their mind ) it makes more sense to build new housing in Illinois for those that live in Louisiana then to try and protect the whole Mississippi delta... at lest as long as you yourkef don't live there of course.

    Plot twist; William Rutheford is the love child of Charlie Baker and Joe Manchin.

    Somebody may already have done these, but: 2012 and 2016 candidates vs. each other in new combinations, using only the raw vote figures with no attempt to compensate for population changes.

    Some of this is predictable and some of it less so: for example Romney got more votes in Wisconsin than Trump, and Clinton got more votes in Florida than Obama, even though Romney lost Wisconsin while Trump won it, and Obama won Florida while Clinton lost it. Also the national popular vote figures for Clinton and Obama are astonishingly close.

    Alan Keyes somehow manages to win the GOP nomination in 2000, resulting in a Gore-slide.
    Green represents the closest states.

    This is what you get for 1896, if:

    - you swing the whole nation 5% towards the Democrats
    - but then the plains states 10% back towards the Republicans (5% swing overall)

    I'm thinking this would be a possible result for a more traditional Democrat, rather than Bryan, running. It's enough to put OH and IN (as well as KY, OR and CA) into the Democrats' column, which would be enough to win, except that WY, KS and SD flip to the Republican, winning it for McKinley.
