    Wow, you actually got it!

    It's Clinton vs Bush vs Johnson if Johnson were to win every county that he got at least 5% of the vote in in OTL.

    Every county where Johnson got more than a certain percentage of the vote?

    Yeah, I gave Johnson every county where he got at least 5% of the vote.

    There are counties in Virginia and elsewhere yjat might have gone for Jeb! but did not go for Trump, so some of the Clinton counties should probably be red. That said, what's the EV tally based on your map?

    Oh, he panders like the rest of them. I"m talking about his conduct.

    Firstly, if Johnson actually did this well, it's likely there'd be a whole hell of a lot more blue on this map, as he mostly takes from the Republican.

    The EV tally is: Clinton 216 - Bush 283 - Johnson 39

    He might not necessarily take more from the Republican. The strategy of going for Republican votes made sense in the context of Republican revulsion of/indifference to Trump. Here, there will be incentive to do more to pick up Bernie's voters and perhaps a smattering of base conservatives tired of Bushes.

    If Johnson goes for that strategy in this scenario, I'm not sure he does as well as I have him doing here.

    Catering to Republicans is not going to give him New Mexico.

    That's more home state advantage than anything else. in any scenario where Johnson wins states, he obviously wins New Mexico.

    Does that also explain him winning a county in Mass? Would he really still choose Weld in this scenario?

    Honestly, Weld would be about the best possible VP pick for Johnson, if his strategy is to appeal to more than just Republicans.

    Weld has a better resume, though.

    I don't see Johnson picking a Democrat as his VP, even if he is a Libertarian-ish Democrat.

    Could somone do a map where a dem wins every country that Obama won in 2012 plus counties where sanders and trump combined won more raw votes then Clinton or the rest of the republicans minues those marginal Romney Clinton counties like Orange CA because to me that's I'll be the 2020 map with a liberal to left leaning progressive dem wining against trump.

    I want to try and make a map for this on a relatively easy yet comparative state maybe Ohio or Wisconsin?

    That would be quite complicated, but maybe I can try sometime.

    Well, all you have to do is use Mapchart.net and it's pretty easy to do.

    I'm betting a map like this would be an absolute blowout for the Democratic candidate. likely on par with 1964 in terms of number of counties won.
