    I won the majority of the popular vote and a landslide in the Electoral College in the 1976 scenario with Carter-Jackson (link). I thought the results were going to be much closer than they turned out.

    Here's a much more narrow victory with Ford-Baker in 1976 (link). I won a narrow victory in the Electoral College while losing the popular vote by 1.3% and almost a million votes.

    I won 1916 running a very Progressive campaign with Hughes-Burkett (link). I won a narrow victory in the Electoral College but lost the popular vote by 1.8%. Both Hughes and Wilson needed Kansas to win (it was Hughes 265 and Wilson 256 before Kansas was called, with 266 needed to win).

    I lost 1916 with a slightly conservative Hughes-Fairbanks campaign (link). Although I solidly lost the popular vote by 3.2%, the Electoral College was tied 259-259 until California was called for Wilson. California was very close, with Wilson winning by only 0.15%.

    I won 1916 with moderate Hughes-Fairbanks (link). I lost the popular vote by 2.2%, but Oregon and California went for me and I narrowly won the Electoral College.

    And in 1917 he will most likely have the US go to war, ore is he a isolationist.

    I tied the Electoral College in 2016 with moderate Trump-Christie and was elected President by the House (link). I lost the popular vote by 2.5% though.
