Actually, how do y’all think the PV breakdown/county map looks?
Crisholm does good in cities and other more liberal areas, especially those with high minority populations like New York City, but Goldwater does better everywhere else, especially in the South.
Also what do you think a Bobby Kennedy vs. Ronald Reagan matchup would look like in 1972, with Kennedy as the incumbent who ended the Vietnam War in 1970?
Mondale actually breaks even 100 electoral votes in 1984.
Or a more funny one. George Wallace vs Henry Wallace. No matter what we're getting a president Wallace
Al Gore (D-TN)/Jay Rockefeller (D-WV): 46.47% - 280 electoral votes
George W. Bush (R-TX)/John Engler (R-MI): 45.84% - 258 electoral votes
Ralph Nader (G-CT)/Winona LaDuke (G-MN) 5.79% - 0 electoral votes
Grover Cleveland vs. Jacques Chirac
ITTL does Nader play spoiler in Oregon?
Yea. Gore picks Rockefeller to shore up WWC and Appalachian voters at the expense of losing more progressives to Nader.
And Michigan and Wiscosin go Republican and Ohio goes Democratic. Along with my least favourite meme on the fourm. Democratic West Virginia. Sure it was a swing state to an extent in 2000 but if your going to have the both Ohio and West Virginia go Democratic you should have Michigan and Wiscosin.
1.) Bush picks the Republican governor from Michigan as VP
2.) Nader does better in Wisconsin, hurting Gore. He did better than average in OTL there.
3.) I already stated I have Gore going after WWC/Appalachian voters ITTL and Rockefeller was a very popular senator from West Virginia. West Virginia was expected to always go Gore until Karl Rove decided to contest it. It's not a "meme", especially not for an alt-2000 map.
Here are some battleground state polls from 2000 (ignore RCP's blatant Republican bias)
Some of these polls are crazy by todays' standards.
Real Clear Politics read like a Republican newsletter for me when I first found it lol.
That looks like something that might happen in the 1990s.
Well thanks for the explanation. Yet on this forum in general. There seems to be a lot of Democratic West Virgnia's overall. It's just a trend I seem to notice a lot.
WV was fairly Democratic pre-2000, though
I don’t see a reason why it wouldn’t vote Dem in 2000 if the ticket was right
If it was 2012, then there’d be more reason to complain
On December 1, 1851, Virginia elected its first Royal Electoral Conclave. There were fifty Duchy Electors, one from each duchy, independent county, and independent city. There were also 152 County Electors, apportioned to the counties (and groups of two or three counties that could not field a single elector). Joseph Johnson was crowned King Joseph II on January 16, 1852, by a 122-79-1 vote (the one being from Morgan County, which failed to send a County Elector due to a tie).
Put that thing back where it came from or so help me
The Election of 1976
Governor Geraldine Ferraro (R-NY)/Senate Minority Leader Charles H. Percy (R-IL): 39.7% Popular Vote
Senator Walter Mondale (D-MN)/Senator Abraham Ribicoff (D-CT): 30.86% Popular Vote
Representative Martin Luther King (SA-GA)/Governor Jerry Rubin (SA-OH): 29.44% Popular Vote
No time for a write-up rn, but I will answer questions
Same slightly ASB universe as my 2000 (Chris) Cuomo victory map
I would think that Mondale would be good enough for MLK. From wikipedia :
He took a liberal position on civil rights issues, which proved acceptable in Minnesota, a state with "a minuscule black population".[22
Also what's the SA?
A New Left party
