    A Conservative Democrat and a Liberal Republican (that is, one of the most right-wing members of the US left and one of the most left-wing members of the US right).

    If the US used the same two round system in electing the president as France.

    Red is Sanders, gold is Clinton, grey is tied, dark blue is Kasich, teal is Cruz, blue-grey is Rubio, and purple is Trump.

    Hey, I just noticed that you're back! :D

    Any plans to do more of those Commonwealth of New England things? I really liked those.

    What the elections in the alternate timeline of Stephan King's 11/22/63 might have looked like, based on what little information the book gives. The book is good, the timeline's a little more than slightly ASB however.

    First 1964 with a very alive JFK vs Barry Goldwater.

    Then 1968, where George Wallace takes advantage of racial tension and a deteriorating situation in Vietnam to win on a third party ticket.

    Screenshot 2017-07-20 08.58.44.png

    In early 1972, President Wallace is assassinated, Vice-President Curtis LeMay takes control, but fails to be elected.

    Humphrey, however, suffers a worse fate in 1976.

    This looks very random... what's the reason why each candidate wins where they do? Is it based off primary results?

    Looks like it. Of course, if we really had a French-style election, I doubt the rules would have stuff like "Coloradans aren't allowed to vote for Republicans" or "Lots of Republicans are running for election in New Hampshire but not in Maine".

    At a guess, it's 'the 2016 election by county, with each republican county going to who won the Republican Primary and ditto for the Democrats'.

    EDIT: Though that makes Las Vegas county wrong, so is something else going on?

    Of course. But it still shows the spoiler effect in full force, which tends to happen in any free for all election.

    I think it's "whoever got the most votes in X county, no matter the party".

    Yes, as a matter of fact there's more of that on the way! In fact, I posted some maps like that back a week or two ago.

    Ah, excellent! :)

    Also, you should check out @LeinadB93's Hail Britannia, his take on the whole "Britain-wank" thing is quite different but still as interesting as yours. :)

    This reminds me of something I did a while ago where I made a map based off what party got more votes in their primary/caucus (in states that used one of either for each party, I compared delegate numbers instead)

    291 EVs for Trump vs. 247 for Clinton.

    This map ended up being really weird, with Hillary somehow managing to win Louisiana, Kentucky, and West Virginia while at the same time Trump wins Nevada, New Hampshire, and Maine.

    This map really looks like the Manchin vs Baker maps that the thread seems to be filled with the last few days.
