    That feeling when you do better than 99.4% of all players with your candidate and difficulty level... and you forgot to log in.


    No, I have no idea how I pulled this off.

    The luckiest game I've ever seen. Nixon/Rockefeller in 1960.

    Closest states:

    Maryland- Nixon +0.00004% (54 votes!)
    New York- Nixon +0.06%
    Oklahoma- Nixon +0.18%
    New Jersey- Nixon +0.30%
    Hawaii- Nixon +0.54%
    Nevada- Nixon +0.68%
    Illinois- Nixon +0.80%

    These states had a combined 111 EV. A mere 0.4% of the PV made the difference between a landslide victory and a loss.

    Not quite as close but still some very narrow state wins for Nixon.

    1. New Jersey-Nixon +0.5% (13,645 votes) 16 Electoral Votes
    2. Maryland-Nixon + 0.68% (7,277 votes) 9 Electoral Votes
    3. West Virginia-Nixon+ 1.92% (15,415 votes) 8 Electoral Votes
    4. Illinois-Nixon + 2.08% (55,554 votes) 27 Electoral Votes
    5. California-Nixon+2.38% (162,106 votes) 55 Electoral Votes
    These five states had a combined 115 EV and once again the difference between a semi-landslide and a defeat.

    I ran as Nixon in 1960 but with a stronger civil rights cred, and I won 323-200 (and the popular vote as 49.59 to 49.89). I won: Texas, Missouri, Tennessee, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Florida, Michigan, and Minnesota. I lost the popular vote by 186,224 votes.

    As Hughes, go anti-war and moderate to slightly progressive on everything else. As Wilson, be progressive but not too progressive.

    Stay supportive of preparation and the right for ships to travel in the war zones. Attack the German-Americans.

    For the buggy question in 968 where the main candidates get the Wallace questions on who to primarily target, do your answers actually affect anything?

    Playing 2000 as Gore on normal feels way harder than it needs to be. Any tips for a good campaign strategy?
