    Interesting, and it seems you only split one county in the process?

    That's the devious thing about rural gerrymanders. Each county can have less than 5000 people in it, so one can more easily follow county boundaries.

    This is so cool
    I take it this “Labor” isn’t very labor friendly at all? Seeing as how Thomas Skidmore helped found the workingmans party IOTL, which promoted using the free market?

    Skidmore was actually forced out of the Workingmen's Party because he was radical and advocated the abolishment of debt and inheritance.

    But um, the Labor Party is kinda basically an utopian-socialist party at this time, challenging co-operatives and stuff like that.

    Could you and other people please stop quoting long-ass posts? It's very, very inconvenient for others to scroll through those.

    That is true, but I don't know what the Democrats would have done in 1972 if something like that happened.

    This was because until the middle of the Summer Wallace was polling in the mid-to-high single digits, the Democrats were still favored to carry most of the South besides the Deep South (Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia), and Wallace hadn't made major inroads with Blue-Collar workers yet in the Midwest. Even after they lost these leads, there was still the potential of carrying the South by dividing the Wallace and Nixon vote, nor was the South especially critical to achieving an electoral majority when you could carry electoral rich States like New York, Pennsylvania, or Illinois.

    In the reverse however, now those same electoral rich States are going to be the ones that are at risk. I doubt that the Democrats would consider the challenge insurmountable, 'specially considering they clawed back from the mid 20's in 1968 to nearly claim victory, but you also have a lot less room for error. The loss of one State, like New York, is going to hurt a hell of a lot more then losing Virginia or Georgia, or even both.

    May I post multiple maps a day if they are all in one post and are put in a spoiler?

    South Dakota and NE-AL would certainly go Dem too. I think if we assume that Bryan is running on the exact same platform he ran on IOTL, he probably sweeps the West and Deep South.

    I also can't see him losing the rural and populist area of ME-02.
