    Is there any way to win both Tennessee and South Carolina as Wallace on normal difficulty? Should I pick Thurmond or Chandler as a running mate and should I support a withdrawal from Vietnam?

    I came close here

    I suspect I bungled a few answers on economics. I'd recommend staying hawkish and segregationist

    Ran moderate as Bush 2000, ended up with a worse PV but much greater EV win. Likely due to Buchanan defections. 301 EC but 47.4%. Gore got 237 and the exact same PV of 48.4%. Well marginally lower if you go to the game link, instead of the summary.

    Managed to lose Tennessee, but held all the other OTL states while picking up some other states. A lot of states came to very narrow margins.

    It was... an interesting experience, if anything.

    Ran with Bush as a moderate-conservative. It worked, as far as the Electoral College is concerned. Top 5% of historical results.
    Won New Mexico by 2.295 votes (.38%), Iowa by 1,376 votes (.10%), New Hampshire by 688 votes (.12%). In all of them, plus Oregon, Nevada, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Tennessee, the number of Gore and Nader voters -combined- was greater than the number of Bush voters.

    I wonder whether the Democrats will be more pissed at Nader or at the EC.

    The dankest 2000 Gore/Bayh victory on Hard.
    https://www.americanhistoryusa.com/campaign-trail/game/1037967

    2000 Gore-Bayh win EV 270-268 lose PV 48.52-48.80.png

    The closest possible win with 270 EV to Bush's 268 EV.
    Gore LOST THE POPULAR VOTE this time by 0.28%!
    In this alternate reality, Republicans and Democrats switch positions on the Electoral College. Arkansas, Missouri, and Tennessee remain important swing states for 2004.
    The tipping point state was Wisconsin, which Gore won by only 69 votes! Bush also only won Arkansas by 628 votes.

    Other close states decided by a margin of <0.5% were Missouri and Tennessee which Gore carried, while Bush carried New Mexico, Oregon, and Iowa.
    Swing states decided by a margin of <4% were Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Michigan (won by Gore), and Florida, New Hampshire, and Ohio (won by Bush).
