The sequel no one expected or asked for. I’m once again bored in class, so here’s four alternate takes on historical elections. They’re not totally realistic, but I do think they’re realistic enough while still being interesting

Your 2004 example is the only time I would vote for a 3rd party that has no shot at 270 EVs. I feel it my duty to always vote, and 99.9% of the time I will only vote for a party with at least a 1% chance at 270 EVs. Your 2004 election is the only situation I'd "waste" my vote.

I voted unstereotypically to the right/center on 1, 3, and 4, because each of the progressive candidates for those races surpass my tolerance for left-wingers to be annoying and idiotic. Note this applies both to specific issues at the time (Ted Kennedy being wage-price controls' strongest soldier in 1980) and more abstract problems I have with these candidates (Tony Benn is farther left than I'm comfortable with, Nader's disgusting approval of a Bush victory in 2000).
