After Spain elected its most fragmented parliament ever in 2015, and the failure of the major parties to negotiate a coalition, a new election was called for in 2016, and with a stagnant economy, regional instability, corruption scandals and Brexit fresh in the mind of voters, it was anyones election to win. The main 2 contenders, as always, were the centre-right PP under Mariano Rajoy and the centre-left PSOE under Pedro Sanchez, but this time, the left wing Unidas Podemos alliance under Pablo Iglesias posed a real threat to the 2 party system, with some even predicting PSOE to fall to third place as the party bickers amongst itself. So, will the two party system survive? Will government deadlock continue? Will regional seperatism continue to make gains around Spain? Most importantly, who will become the new Prime Minister of Spain?
NOTE: Spain uses the D’Hondt system, which does not exist in Prime Minister Infinity, however, it is encouraged that you use one of many available D’Hondt calculators to determine the final result.

In July 2011, President Obama was shot and killed by a white nationalist terrorist, Biden is promptly inaugurated as President for Obama’s last year of his first term. Biden then goes on to win a landslide victory in 2012, getting up to 395 Electoral votes. The majority of mainstream and establishment Republicans decide not to run leaving Trump able to gain the nomination and go on to lose to Biden, as said above. Biden’s Vice President for his 2012 race was Hillary Clinton, Obama’s formal rival. Biden’s 2012-2016 term marked a period of Democrat dominance, with the peak of dominance being Biden introducing a Public Option to Obama-Care in honor of his former friend and boss, Barack Obama. President Biden had made it a publicly known that he would be running again in 2016, until May 2015, when his eldest son died of cancer, which flipped his plans on its head. Biden feels as if he is not in the right emotional state to run in another election, and announces his decision to not seek a second term in July 2015. causing the Democratic Party primary to heat up greatly, matching the heat of the Republican Party primary.

Hello, player! Ever wanted to play or watch the 2016 House elections? Of course you do/would, why else would you be viewing this post? Well anyway, ever find yourself wondering what it would be like to just play the House in one state? The all 435 races in normal Congress Infinity giving you anxiety? Have no fear, general viewer! Behold, the brand new Single State Series, for the US House!
In this series, one takes control of a specific party in a specific state. This smaller focus allows one to more easily focus on the really competitive (or in certain races, the least competitive) races, without worrying if you’ll lose the lead in a district literally anywhere else in the states.
-New Map (obviously): Iowa US House Congressional Districts, 2013-2023
-Observer Mode/Party!: I love it,?you love it, heck for all scenarios official and custom, it should be mandatory!
-New region-specific photos!: Taken from here, “Current Districts and Representatives”
-Adjusted population for each region, voters, and possible voting pop:Found from here
-Added massive amount of “Historical Context” for the General Blurb, for thos interested in learning
-Two start dates! October 8, and September 1, per request
-Re-adjusted Surrogates for the scenario. If you feel there could be a better scenario with more surrogates, please let me know!
-(V1.1): Lowered “Allowance” (my word for party campaign funds) has been lowered to 300k for both main parties, thank you to who suggested it, you know who you are.
Future Plans/Few Last Things
n this specific scenario, Iowa -2016! Iowa’s 2016 campaign wasn’t the most competitive in real life-all of the electoral victors won by at least 5 points. However, I felt it would be helpful for you to start on an easier (in the GOP mind) campaign, or for the Democrats, an extermely hard campaign. In the future, I hope to create and upload both the 2014 and 2018 races as well.
This is my very first campaign to go public for 270soft-I’d be incredibly grateful for any and all feedback from you. If you feel there are improvements to be made, please let me know and I’ll do my best to accomodate, and hopefully make it better.
Again, I’ll repeat myself. This is meant to be the launch of a series. I hope to make more scenarios like this in the future.
Further to my 2016 Presidential Election in New Hampshire scenario, I decided to expand it to New England as a whole because the 10 counties in NH alone were too few to accurately handle the primaries.
This scenario allows you to battle 2016 in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont with state specific endorsers and accurate polling data for the GOP and Dem primaries (1 delegate per vote cast with 0% cut-off).
