That's going to be the worst president-vice president relationship outside of Jackson-Calhoun. If LBJ gets assassinated, the conspiracy theorists are going to say Bobby did it like they think Johnson killed Jack
I decided to do Presidential Primaries for the year 1996, with the six main contenders for the nomination slugging it out for seven to six months, trying to scrape enough pledged delegates come convention to formally nominate it, with backroom deals abound in both parties. The general election sees narrow wins in Illinois, Indiana coupled with a surprise loss in Kentucky with pickups in New Jersey and New Hampshire narrowly.

I'll probably do a proper write up for this in the morning, but if there are any questions so far, feel free to ask and I'll do my best to answer them.

Working Together for Britain

Based on a December 1981 election poll, in which Steel was at his height of public popularity.

I think he uses MS Paint to edit them instead of the Wikipedia sandbox. I don't really blame him tbh, learning Wikicode can be a bit of a hassle
Yeah, I've always used MS Paint instead of actually going on the sandbox. It's easier for me to pick out a template from wikipedia and modify it manually via paint than to go through the sandbox. I remember it intimidated me the first time I tried something a year a go, (I forgot what it was I was doing) and so I've loved paint and never looked back.
Another US election from my Führerreich TL, this time with the Republicans cross-endorsing Teddy because he was a semi-popular incumbent. He didn't get a landslide victory though because people were wary of him running for a third full term

2018 Republic of Texas Presidential Election

In the 2018 presidential election, incumbent president Kay Bailey Hutchison of the conservative Democratic Party was elected to her third three-year term, becoming the first president to successfully win a third term since Ann Richards in 1997. To win the presidency in Texas one does not need to win the popular vote overall but instead needs to win a majority of the nation's 299 House of Delegates districts.

Hutchison was first elected in 2012 defeating incumbent one-term Liberal president Chris Bell. Hutchison enjoyed high approval ratings throughout most of her presidency leading to a landslide 16 point reelection victory in 2015, but her approval ratings sank deeply in mid-2017 with a dip in the economy coupled with the Red River environmental disaster, which she was accused of not paying enough attention to due to the area's historic Liberal Party leanings. The Liberal Party saw this as their opportunity to take back the presidency and nominated delegate Chet Edwards as their candidate. Hutchison and Edwards were polling neck-and-neck all the way up to 3 months out from the election when Hutchison began to take the lead due to a rallying economy and allegations of corruption within the Liberal Party apparatus. Hutchison won a majority of the districts with a comfortable 9.5 point win over delegate Edwards, however Edwards won 138 districts to Hutchison's 161, much more than he was expected to with a nearly 10 point loss in the popular vote exemplifying the advantage the Liberal Party has with the District-Vote System. With this election, Democrats have won the popular vote in the last 6 straight elections, including 2009 where Liberal Chris Bell won a majority of districts and the election despite losing the popular vote.

Here's a one-off I'm doing, with an independent Oregon Country

The second round of the 2018 Oregonian general election was held on 28 October 2018 in the Federal Republic of Oregon to elect the President, Vice President, and the National Assembly of Oregon. Due to the Constitution of Oregon limiting the Presidency to a single consecutive five-year term, incumbent President Sandy Lee Arronge of the Civic People's Party was ineligible for a second term. On 7 October 2018, former President Johnny Loewenthal of the Civic People's Party, who had been previously elected President in 2003, came in a narrow first in the first round, but lost in the second round to Willamette congressman Barry Felder of Green Future. Loewenthal, who had previously been charged with corruption, was attempting to make a political comeback following his 10 year ban from running for public office, but was unsuccessful.

Edit: Before anyone questions how Loewenthal can run for a second term, the Constitution of Oregon ITTL only limits presidents to a single consecutive term, it specifies nothing about non-consecutive terms.

Edit 2: I may have been lowkey inspired by @RoxyLikeAPuma's recently posted Texan election

The Secret Service would have to step in to keep the two from killing one another.

To the Edge and Maybe Over: Part 1
“I want to finally get something done on Social Security. I want younger workers to be able to manage some of their own money, some of their own payroll taxes in the private sector under certain guidelines to get a better rate of return on your own money.”

-Texas Governor George W. Bush in his closing statement during the October 4th Presidential Debate, 2000

“One important way of looking at this is to ask, who are you going to fight for? Throughout my career in public service, I have fought for the working men and women of this country, middle-class families, senior citizens. Why? Because you are the ones who have the hardest time paying taxes, the hardest time making ends meet. You are the ones who are making car payments and mortgage payments and doing right by your kids. And a lot of times there are powerful forces arrayed against you. And make no mistake about it, they do have undue influence in Washington, D.C., and it makes a difference if you have a president who will fight for you. I am prepared to do that even when Governor Bush is not.”

-Vice President Al Gore in his closing statement during the October 4th Presidential Debate, 2000

“I have the utmost respect for Vice President Cheney’s service to the country, but I fundamentally disagree with a lot of what he has proposed we do.”

-Senator Joe Lieberman in the Vice Presidential Debate, October 5th, 2000


-Headline of The Washington Post, October 12th, 2000


-Headline in The New York Post, October 13th, 2000

“I wish Nader a speedy recovery from his injuries. While we may be opponents, I do believe his heart is in the right place and we share quite a few major concerns surrounding global warming and environmental degradation.”

-Vice President Al Gore in response to being asked about Green Party nominee Ralph Nader’s recent hospitalization, October 15th, 2000

“Vice President Gore is a good man, but he is wrongheaded about much issues impacting the country. He doesn’t have a strateger-strategy, aha-to deal with the rise of China and that is going to be the biggest issue of the new millennium.”

-Governor George W. Bush at a campaign event in Miami, October 20th, 2000

“George needs to stop fumbling when he speaks so much. I’m not going to lie, I wish Jeb was the nominee instead.”

-Leaked audio of former Secretary of Defense and 2000 Republican Vice Presidential nominee Dick Cheney, taken October 22nd, 2000

“Exit polls in Florida appear to indicate that Vice President Al Gore will carry the state, with 25 electoral votes. However, as of this time, the state remains too close to call and, if the percentages are correct, will be within the margin needed to trigger a recount.”

-CNN host Wolf Blitzer commenting on exit polls taken on Election Day, November 7th, 2000


-Headline of The New York Times, November 8th, 2000


-Headline of The Wall Street Journal, November 9th, 2000

“You know, when we named our election coverage“Indecision 2000,” we didn’t plan on that being taken literally.”

-The Daily Show host Jon Stewart in response to the ongoing Florida recount, November 9th, 2000


-Headline of The Washington Post, November 11th, 2000

“I would like to congratulate Vice President Gore on his victory in the presidential election. While obviously not the outcome I preferred, I want us all to support the Vice President as he enters the White House. I know he wants what’s best for the country and hope he will pursue the kind of responsible policies that will keep it going strong.”

-Governor George W. Bush’s concession speech, November 11th, 2000

“I would like to thank Governor Bush for running a hard-fought race. I hope to build on the legacy of President Clinton and make an America that works for all of us. Rich or poor, black or white, man or woman, all should be able to enjoy the promise of America. That means working to pay off our national debt while defending Social Security and Medicare. That means investing in promising new technologies and programs to benefit our communities. That means taking meaningful action to prevent climate change from wreaking havoc on our planet. I thank you for your support and hope I can live up to these goals.”

-President-Elect Al Gore in his victory speech, November 11th, 2000

“Honestly, given the benefit of hindsight, my defeat was a blessing is disguise. I honestly don’t know how I would’ve handled the events that occurred afterwards. The 2000 election defeat allowed me to embark on a rather different journey that I can honestly say I have cherished greatly.”

-Former Commissioner of Baseball George W. Bush, in an ESPN interview just after his retirement, 2016

“The day Al Gore officially became the president-elect was one of the happiest days of my life. I was hopeful that Al and I could do great things for the country. He was committed to a strong foreign policy, fiscal responsibility, environmentalism and public service—all priorities I deeply shared. I think we made a good team—and of course in the back of my mind, I did consider the likelihood that if he was as successful as I thought he would be, I might one day make it to the Oval Office myself. And as it happens, I did—it just happened in the way I least wanted it to.

But at the time, things for me were all smiles. Right after that speech, Al gave me a call. He told me “I want you to know that I couldn’t have won this without you. And you are going to play a big role in my administration.” He meant it too. John Nance Garner once described the Vice Presidency as worthless (albeit in more colorful language). Al made it very clear I wouldn’t be worthless in his administration. And I remain grateful for that to this day.”

-Former President Joe Lieberman in his autobiography An Amazing Adventure, published in 2014
