    It was called "Win the White House." It's really easy to blow through once you figure it all out.

    IOTL communist and socialist forces attempted a coup d'état in Spain in October 1934. The next infobox and description show an AH where the coup attempt was quickly aborted.

    [​IMG]

    The Spanish Gendarmerie is well placed in Asturias and Catalonia and quickly deal with the insurgents before they get a chance to rise up. Fighting extends for two days before all rebel forces are defeated with many deserting and going underground to prepare for another revolution. The revolution attempt polarizes the society anyways but not to the point of OTL (this was the main cause behind the Spanish Civil War IOTL). The CEDA (Spanish Confederation of Autonomous Rights) and RRP (Radical Republican Party) government continues during 1935 however at the end of the year things begin to turn sour. The far-left is becoming more agitated. The CEDA attempts to outlaw far-left activist organisations but this is turned out by their own RRP allies which causes a fracture in the government. The right-wing government can't hold itself anymore as the RRP keeps distancing itself from the CEDA. Elections are called in April 14th 1936 which results in the leftist groups merging themselves into a single party, the Popular Front while the right-wing parties do not form a broad front.

    The results were 34% for the Popular Front while the CEDA got 18% of the votes and the PRR essentially disintegrated only keeping 2% of the votes. The Popular Front alligned itself with local parties such as the Catalan Left Front reaching a total of 44% of the votes, still not enough to form a government so a second round of the general elections had to be done. The president of the Spanish Republic, Niceto Alcalá-Zamora assumes control of the country until elections are held. Political violence skyrockets as both sides claim the other impeded a proper government to be formed. Within this scenario, left-wing parties launch a coup attempt on September 24th 1936. The coup succeeds in Catalonia and Asturias. Heavy fighting erupts in the disputed areas of Madrid, Valencia and Andalusia.

    Most of the army is loyal to the Government and it quickly mobilises. The most rightists within the military rapidly rise in the chain of command for dealing effective damage to the far-left groups. The African Army crosses to Andalusia and within a week the region is cleared of communist and anarchist groups. The coup attempt in Valencia is routed by local forces. In Catalonia the initially unified government collapses between anarchists, communists and separatists with separatist militias fighting all sides. The control of the state itself deteriorates rapidly and the Spanish Navy attacks Barcelona from the bases in Cartagena managing to land a loyal commitment that takes the harbour and creates a defence perimeter.

    In Madrid the far-left groups manage to clear the inner parts of the city by October 1st however by that date the loyalist army has taken positions outside of Madrid and artillery begins piercing the outer parts of the city. The offensive is led by general Emilio Mola who wants to advance systematically to deal as much damage as possible to the communists. An initial infantry charge is repelled on October 6th. Meanwhile, in Asturias the underground militias take control of the region and manage to expel loyal forces to neighbouring Galicia and even take parts of Cantabria before Basque troops stop them in Santander (Basques, specially the nationalists, were reactionaries who didn't want to see communists take over Spain, much less their own country). An inside insurgency is crushed in Bilbao and Asturian miners are routed from Santander on October 23rd. Meanwhile, the armies of Navarra and Zaragoza assault Catalonia quickly conquering Lleida and connecting with Valencian and Moroccan forces close to Tarragona. Manuel Goded issues a surrender order to Barcelona to which the communists accept when they are promised amnesty. A counter-coup happens in Barcelona by the separatists led by Lluís Companys (the same who staged the 1934 coup). Separatists are crushed within a week as they stood no chance against a moderately-sized part of the Spanish Army. Forces defending Madrid are hopeless and surrender on November 3rd, three days before Catalonia is cleared. The last rebel holdout is Asturias. Spanish artillery advances slowly through the mountain passes until reaching Oviedo which is laid siege from October 29th to November 12th. The last rebel-held city is Gijón which surrenders after a protracted siege on the 29th.

    Foreign support for this alternate civil war is also alternate, with both Capitalist Democracies and Fascists supporting the Government while the rebels were only supported by the Soviet Union. This causes the Soviets to distance itself further from the French and British thus not promising assistance if Hitler invaded Czechoslovakia during 1938. The Spanish Republic takes a rightist turn and in the 1938 elections a coalition led by the CEDA and Spanish Regeneration wins the elections with an absolute majority. The Spanish Republic would remain neutral in WW2 while selling weapons and supplies to both sides, specially the Axis after Barbarossa is launched (if it did). Hitler tried to lure Spain into the Axis camp, but Spain kept rejecting all proposals. Spain declared war on the Axis on late 1944 but sent no fighting force except for a voluntary force that fought in Okinawa against Japan. Without the destruction of IOTL civil war and without foreign trade blocked during the 40's and the 50's Spain catches up with the rest of Europe faster than IOTL. Today Spain is a parliamentarian democracy with a population of 50 million inhabitants and is within the world's top 10 economies and key pillar of the European Union and NATO, being a member of both since they were created.

    Yes, I know it's not a proper wikipedia infobox, it's a different style.

    a couple of the names and flags are placeholders, some are based on old research that I can't find sources on anymore, and I just noticed that I forgot to type in the name of Israel; whoops

    Really easy, but I must say it was a bit fun. Is there a more advanced version of this?

    I've created an absolute bastard Georgist party based on some redditor's suggestion for a Libertarian-Green-Constitution fusion party that stands for market-friendly solutions to the climate crisis, civil libertarianism, classical liberalism, and non-interventionism. This mad son of a bitch would be the result of the 2004 election, and political outsiders feeling that the Democrats and Republicans were effectively the same thing with regards to the Iraq War and corporate malfeasance.

    It's like if A Giant Sucking Sound's Freedom Party was transposed to 2004.

    I looked at the polls for the 1992 US Presidential Election during the period when Perot suspended his campaign, and contrary to the "Perot cost Bush the election" argument, Clinton was leading by an average of 14%, more then double what he actually won by.

    Disclaimer: I know basically nothing about Mexican politics, so this is surely somewhere between "convergent" and "implausible". But I got this idea stuck in my head and I couldn't get it out. So here we are.

    • Cárdenas manages to win in 1988; we'll say his margin of victory is higher, and the PRI is in denial for longer, that it's just too implausible to rig the results. His term is not terribly successful, since he faces an unco-operative, PRI dominated legislature, but a combination of goodwill and PRI infighting is enough to allow fellow perredista Muñoz Ledo to eke out a win in '94.
    • By 2000, however, the PRD's lustre has worn off, and PAN sweeps into office on a promise of good governance and growing the economy. Accordingly, Barrio undertakes a series of market liberalizations and pursues international investment; in his biggest move, he negotiates Mexico's entry into NAFTA (formerly CUSFTA).
    • López Obrador runs as the PRD's candidate in both 2000 and 2006, losing handily both times; this ends his presidential ambitions. However, since the PRD is seen as a party of government, he never leaves and sets up his own outfit, instead opting to exert influence within the party. His support is able to propel one of his allies, Polevnsky, to the PRD nomination and then the presidency.
    • After 12 years of PAN's pro-business agenda, the public returns to the PRD; Polvensky's leftwards tilt is welcomed, but sometimes more radical than anticipated. Her administration is dogged by accusations of cronyism and conflicts of interest, and speculation that interior minister López Obrador is really running the show.
    • Rodríguez campaigns on an anti-establishment, anti-corruption and anti-crime message, and rides a populist wave to victory. It's not entirely clear in the table, but he sets up an actual party for his campaign instead of running as an independent.

    On October 19th, 1984, Alberta NDP Leader Grant Notley decides to cancel his seat on Wapiti Flight 402, staying another day in Edmonton to speak at a party fundraiser before returning home to Fairview the next morning.

    The flight would tragically crash near Slave Lake, leaving only four survivors. Many years later, historians would ponder what path Alberta's political history may have taken had the retired Premier chosen to fly home that night.

    Hahaha… sorry. But I wouldn't worry too much, I have no doubt you can craft a better story than my sketch!

    The strangest thing about the Presidential Election of 1968 is not the electoral deadlock, but the result of it. The Democrats and Dixiecrats threw their support behind George Wallace for the position of Vice-President. This was a result that the Democratic Vice-Presidential Candidate, Albert Rosellini, was also from Washington.

    In a contingent election for Vice President, the Senate would only be able to choose from the top two candidates. There is also no requirement that the President and Vice President be from different states, merely that the electors of a state can't vote for a ticket of two people from the same state as themselves. Otherwise, an interesting idea for a timeline.
