  1. Benjamin Harrison wins 1892 = Populist 1900s?

    So something that I wonder is if Benjamin Harrison winning in 1892 would result in a Populist Democrat winning the 1896 Election. How likely is that to happen? A Populist administration (if it happens) sounds pretty interesting, what would its policies be on trade, immigration and civil rights?
  2. U.S adopts the Roman Consular system

    Hello! This is my first post here ! I am German, english wasn't my native language , so please forgive me if I make any mistakes! The U.S was founded on HEAVY Roman and Greek influence. During its foundation, the age and power of monarchy was still strong if not universal. Conditions were...
  3. AHC: American elections after Kerry victory in 2004

    Say Kerry somehow wins Ohio, and that results in him winning the 2004 election, how would the next presidential elections up to 2020 play out keeping in the mind that the Great Recession would still happen and so would the COVID-19 pandemic?
  4. AHC: Create an alternate President for the USA

    The United States of America has existed for over 200 years, and due to it being a Democracy, has had many possible candidates for its presidency. Your challenge is to make the most original idea for a president of the USA possible, I'll start with my own idea: Elbridge Gerry would become close...

    WI: Bayh-Celler becomes the 26th Amendment

    Before the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, before the Every Vote Counts Amendment, and before the all too infamous 2001 Presidential election, there was the Bayh-Celler Amendment of 1969. The Bayh-Celler Amendment was probably the closest point in US history where the Electoral College...

    Making Election Maps (Wikipedia)

    How would I go about making alternate election maps in these styles?
  7. The Wilderness

    The Wilderness Prologue: You reap what you sow The early 2010s were a time of great confusion in the political world. Many had written off the Republican party as doomed to a great amount of time in the Wilderness after the abject failure of the Bush Administration had driven the country off a...
  8. Timeline advice: how do I get an Alan Keyes presidency in 2000?

    Okay, so I'm planning on starting a... less ambitious timeline than the ones I've tried and miserably failed in the past. It's going to be called "The 21st Century - The Most Cursed Century in History". I intend to have a POD in the 1990s but I only want it to start getting really cursed in...
  9. WI Contingent Election in 1960?

    Suppose that the 1960 presidential election goes further down the wire, and the Kennedy-Johnson ticket holds a plurality of the electoral and popular vote, but falls short of the magic number of 268 electors. Harry Byrd and his unpledged electors make known their demands regarding segregation...

    WI: TR Wins the 1912 Republican Nomination

    In 1912, former President Theodore Roosevelt came close to winning the Republican nomination for President but he lost to incumbent President William Howard Taft. What if Roosevelt had dethroned Taft and become the 1912 nominee? Who would be Roosevelt's running mate? According to biographer...
  11. What if the Brexit Party won the Peterborough By-Election

    When Labour MP for Peterborough Fiona Onasanya was convicted for preventing the course of justice in retaliation to a motering offence in 2017, she was expelled from the Labour party. A recall petition was passed in her constituency, triggering a by-election to determine the new MP for...
  12. Truman Runs in '52

    So, as I was doing a little digging for a light-hearted TL based on the new Netflix series "Hollywood," I discovered that, according to the 22nd Amendment, the president in office at the time the amendment was passed was exempt from the new term limit, meaning that, legally speaking, Harry S...

    Crimson Banners Fly: The Rise of the American Left
    Threadmarks: Title: Crimson Banners Fly I & Table of Contents

    Author's Notes: "Crimson Banners Fly" is an alternate history timeline set at the turn of the century, at the precipice of momentous change for the United States. This will be a re-imagining of an older timeline of mine from around 2015/6 called "Paint it Red" (posted only on the Atlas Forum)...
  14. AHC: Micheal Foot wins 1983 UK General Election

    Fairly self-explanatory challenge; make Michael Foot lead the Labour Party to victory in the 1983 election. I'm pretty relaxed about when the POD is, so if you want to have a different PM to Thatcher that's fine. Interested to hear people's thoughts
  15. Lab-Lib pact plausibility check

    So I've been playing around with Prime Minister Infinity and had a pretty solid run as the Liberals in 1950 and enjoyed myself so much I'm thinking of both making a continuation scenario and maybe a short timeline based on how a hypothetical Labour minority government with Liberal support would...
  16. Civil War's End

    Fort Grant Gathersburg, Maryland Thursday, December 1, 1864 Fort Grant was a new camp built to hold the prisoners taken after the Battle of Washington and subsequent siege. It had been built quickly by people who were not inclined to wish the best for those imprisoned inside it...
  17. AHC: Prevent the political crisis in Austria following the 1897 election

    With a POD just after the Cisleithanian legislative election of 1897, have a strong and lasting government emerge in Austria, which is capable of renewing the financial agreements with Hungary within a year or so. In my opinion, it would be very unlikely, that Count Badeni wouldn't remain the...
  18. DBWI: No President Jackson in 88.

    OK, so Rev. Jesse Fucking Jackson. The best thing to come out of South Carolina since Mt. Rushmore. One of the U.S.'s best fucking Presidents, and not just because he became America's first AA leader just 24 years after the Civil Rights Act was passed. He and VP Ted Kennedy (RIP) did some...

    Minor PoD: What if Wilhelm III runs in 1930?

    In OTL the german crown prince wanted to run in the 1930 presidential election as part of a wide ranging right and far right coalition, however his father sent him a ultimatum to not run, and if he had done it he would lose his right to the german sucession, so any plans for a monarchical...
