    Finish 3rd in terms of votes, almost lose seat, still become PM. The crazy life of Ed Miliband.

    So I played as the Conservatives in 2010, and across all games in this series, a pretty good strategy is a) bank up on debate skills; and b) save your money until the last two weeks, whereby you go absolutely nuts on ads.

    Add in some FPTP fun with the Lib Dems, and the Tories got their 1997:

    The election ended up being decided by about 2,000 votes and a recount in Wisconsin.

    Trump's running mate was Pat Buchanan.

    It is his home state, and I think he was a lot more to the left in the 80s.

    For that matter, I'm more surprised that Ted Kennedy of all people won MS and AL.

    I messed with TheLiberalKitten's 1988 scenario some months back and I guess I decided that Late-Eighties Trump would have a pretty good shot at flipping Greater New York.

    That would be a surprising showing by Trump and Duke in those States, coupled with Southerner Bill Clinton's inclusion on the ticket.

    I'm scared to ask, but what was Duke's vote-share nationwide? Best state?
