  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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

    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)...
  5. 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
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  11. AH Challenge: British Civil War (1974)

    Start a Civil War between the Right and Left just after the 1974 general elections. *Either side can win *Very little foreign intervention

  13. WI Joe Clark remained PM of Canada after 1979-1980?

    In the 1979 election in Canada, Joe Clark and the Progressive Conservatives narrowly beat Pierre Trudeau of the Liberal Party and won a minority government. However it fell soon after after his first budget failed, which many say failed because he attempted to govern as if he had a majority...
  14. What If Theodore Roosevelt Won in 1912?
    Threadmarks: Theodore Roosevelt (Progressive): Term Two-1913-1916

    1912 Election The United States presidential election of 1912 was the 32nd quadrennial presidential election, held on Tuesday, November 5, 1912.

    A more positive 1988 US election

    IOTL, the 1988 election was among the most negative of elections in American history, and really established negative campaigning as one of the greatest strategies of candidates. Michael Dukakis was attacked for a whole host of things, from being un-American to releasing murderers and even more...

    WI: McCain never runs 2008

    So I just got thinking, what if John McCain had never ran in 2008? Who'd run as the Republican nominee and could they win against Obama?
  18. No falkland war victory, SDP/Liberal government?

    They were up to 50% in some polls up until the falklands and I wonder that if the falklands or if the military junta was overthrown right before it planned to invade would there have been an SDP/Liberal government? Who would have become the PM, Roy Jenkins or David Steel?

    AHC: President Hoover - President J. Edgar Hoover, that is.

    Like the tin says, your challenge is to have infamous FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover become President of the United States at some point before his death in 1972.
  20. Dukakis wins 1988.

    Dukakis was nearly stopped by an aide at the place where he drove the tank. Dukakis gives his original planned debate answer about how his father was killed and brother died in a drunk driving accident and he still does not feel right about the death penalty. (perhaps the question doesn't...
