LBJ and Goldwater win the 1968 nominations, leading to a massive surge in third party support. The Democratic Party splits between segregationist George Wallace and anti-war activist George McGovern. Goldwater wins an abysmally low % of the popular vote due to the democratic split.

I don't, know, there. There are quite a few of those States, even back in the '60's (arguably ESPECIALLY in the '60's - chill out, flower power, peace man, etc.) going for someone like Goldwater, to be honest. Although, a low turnout rate, or even the Socialist, Socialist Labor, or other hard-left parties, or the nascent Peace and Justice Party actually running (which they didn't in 1968) and getting abnormally high vote share in Northeast, Mid-West, and California big cities, with those three candidates all running otherwise. Or McGovern (who I just noticed was there) does a lot better in the areas I just listed than you seem to indicate.

Yeah this was just designed for maximum cursed

2024 Election: 

  • Joe Biden is renominated
  • A more establishment Republican is nominated as Trump opts not to run initially as polls show Biden likely to win reelection. 
  • A health scare causes Biden to announce he won't serve a 2nd term and that Kamala Harris will take over if the ticket is reelected. 
  • Support for Harris isn't as high as Biden and polls show GOP with a shot to win. This causes Trump to demand that the nomination be redone and given to him. The GOP refuses. Trump runs 3rd party.

Why would Sanders and Cruz consider running to be a protest? They aren't running for the OMRLP or the Rhinoceros Party, you know?

they run on seperate parties. the conservatives would be protesting Collins and the progessives would be protesting manchin. I honestly just wanted a chaotic four way map lol

But the Duopoly is a scam and a system of electoral rigging anyways. There should be more than two parties in every election ALLOWED to be electable, so the U.S. can rise above being one of the five worst political cultures in the First World, along with Japan, Singapore, Hungary, and Portugal. How far have solid, unchallengeable two-party systems gotten the Anglo-Caribbean nations, who almost all have one, with only a few exceptions?

A four-way race might pave for a more multiparty system hopefully.
