    Donald Trump Jr: 58%
    Bill De Blasio: 35%
    Other - 7%


    This scenario was pretty interesting.

    I'm running as Wesley Clark in the 2004 election. Any advice for the primaries? I'm mainly running with little involvement and just running the main parts of the campaign. Is it better if I micromanage more?

    Wesley Clark is now the God Emperor of the Democrats. I don't know how I landslided (With more than 100% of the vote!) and frankly at this point I'm too afraid to ask...

    God-Emperor Clark's luck ran out in the general election unfortunately. Apparently Dubya is immune from life hacking.

    John Edwards was doing fine until John Edwards destroyed John Edwards in a debate, hence leading John Edwards to fall in the polls while John Edwards rose. John Edwards then dropped out due to lack of funding. After losing the Iowa primary, John Edwards did the same

    2008 Democratic Primaries

    2008 primary.PNG

    The 2008 Democratic primaries were hectic. First, Obama won an upset victory in Iowa, with Clinton finishing second. However, the real shocker came when John Edwards pulled off an incredible victory and won New Hampshire. Nevertheless, Edwards' momentum soon faded and Obama became the frontrunner. Then, suddenly Hillary Clinton made a comeback and went on to win Florida and Texas, as well as her adopted home state of New York. A narrow 0.1% victory in the California completed the upset and Hillary Clinton became the Democratic frontrunner.

    However, her campaign eventually ground to a halt due to poor debate performances and mounting scandal. All of a sudden, John Edwards was catapulted back into the race and won several states like Oregon and New Jersey. As the race headed into the summer, a deadlocked convention was all but certain when the party's super delegates split evenly between the candidates.

    A chaotic contested convention eventually led to Obama emerging victorious on the second ballot. Barack Hussein Obama was now the nominee of the Democratic party, a fierce general election lay ahead...

    2008 Republican Primaries

    2008 gop.PNG

    The 2008 Republican primaries were anticipated as being a coronation for frontrunner Mike Huckabee. Indeed, he led all the national polls and cruised to easy victories in early voting states such as Iowa and New Hampshire. However, a stunning upset victory by John McCain in California derailed Huckabee's momentum. The race was suddenly back into contention and both McCain and Romney would campaign bitterly to win back the nomination from Huckabee.

    Alas, it was not to be. The moderate wing of the party was divided between Romney and McCain and Mike Dale Huckabee became the Republican nominee.

    The 2008 election was to be Obama vs Huckabee. The most hotly anticipated election in American history was about to begin...

    2008 General Election

    2008.PNG

    In the 2008 election, set against the backdrop of the Great Recession and the Iraq War, would lead to the largest Democratic landslide since Franklin Roosevelt. Barack Obama would win 518 EV defeating Mike Huckabee in an unprecedented landslide, with its coattails leading to a filibuster proof Democratic majority in Congress.

    The first African American President took office on January 20th, 2009...

    2012 Republican Primaries

    2012 gop.PNG

    The 2012 Republican Primary began with a closely contested result in the Iowa caucus between Senator Sam Brownback and Governor George Pataki. The rivalry heated up with Pataki winning the New Hampshire primary and setting the stage for a close race.

    However, Pataki's momentum soon fizzled out as Sam Brownback scored numerous victories and George Pataki's rivals Romney and Gingrich also winning a few states. However, Brownback would eventually triumph and therefore Samuel Dale Brownback would be the Republican nominee.

    A grueling general election campaign against President Obama lay ahead. The question was, would Brownback win back the White House?

    2012 General Election


    2012 alt.PNG

    The 2012 election would turn out to be closer than 2008, with many voters disappointed in Obama's performance over the past 4 years. However, with a recovering economy and victories in the debates, Obama was re-elected with 386 EV, a strong mandate but a far cry from his 2008 victory.

    With 4 years to go, Obama would work on getting more of his agenda passed. Meanwhile, candidates began preparing for 2016...

    The 2016 Democratic primaries became a coronation for Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton who became the nominee of the Democratic party in 2016 and the first female nominee of a major party.
