You being the only active candidate gives you a win.

IC reason:
Harmon is able to narrowly beat the fourth party system's massive Republican advantage in the electoral college mainly because La Follette is pretty extreme and disliked outside the West and Upper Midwest. La Follette's extreme views scared away pro-business voters in the Northeast, and they voted for Harmon because he was seen as the lesser of two evils. This gave Harmon a narrow win in New York, which won him the election.

Traditional swing states like Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, and Missouri went with the more moderate candidate, which was Harmon.

The support of William Jennings Bryan helped Harmon in the much more progressive Western and Great Plains states, but La Follette's very progressive stances allowed him to win them all, excluding solid South Texas and quasi-Southern Oklahoma.
