One could do this for any era (e.g. it'd probably be fairly possible to look up speculation in the Gilded Age US for future candidates) but it's obviously easiest when it's an era one's lived through. For example, here's my forward-looking list from circa early 2006 when I first started hearing about US politics on forums.
For me my real deep-dive into politics began shortly after 2016, so here goes.

Presidents of the United States of America
2017-2020: Donald Trump (Republican)
2020-2021: Mike Pence (Republican)
2016 (with Mike Pence): def. Hillary Clinton / Tim Kaine (Democratic)
2021-2029: Sherrod Brown (Democratic)
2020 (with John Hickenlooper) def. Incumbent / Ronna Romney McDaniel (Republican)
2024 (with John Hickenlooper) def. Nikki Haley / Adam Laxalt (Republican)

2029-2033: Krysten Sinema (Democratic)
2028 (with Jason Kander) def. John James / Jeanette Nuñez (Republican), Kelli Ward / Chris McDaniel (Independent)
2033-2037: Tom Cotton (Republican)
2032 (with Jane Timken) def. Incumbents
2037-2041: Beto O’Rourke (Democratic)
2036 (with Peggy Flanagan) def. Incumbents
2041-2046: Ben Shapiro (Republican)
2040 (with Madison Gesiotto) def. Incumbents
2044 (with Madison Gesiotto) def. Lee Carter / Erin Mendenhall (Democratic), Alex Ohanian / Ziad Ahmed (Independent)

2046-2049: John James (Republican)
2049-0000: Mandela Barnes (Democratic)

Here's an idea: (Year)-punk lists where we try to guess how commentators at the time might have predicted future elections from their own perspective. You can probably go maybe 20 years into the future from then before you start running out of plausible candidates.

Ron Paul/One of the South Park Guys sucks as a ticket, in a truly, horrendously amazing way

I’ll have a go at a mid-2016 punk scenario, as that’s the first one that came to mind:

2009 - 2017: Barack Obama / Joe Biden (Democrat)
2008 def: John McCain / Sarah Palin (Republican)
2012 def: Mitt Romney / Paul Ryan (Republican)

2017 - 2025: Hillary Clinton / Tom Perez (Democrat)
2016 def: Donald Trump / Joni Ernst (Republican), Greg Bell / Bill Kristol (Independent), Gary Johnson / William Weld (Libertarian)
2020 def: Paul Ryan / Nikki Haley (Republican), Donald Trump / Michael Flynn (Make America Great Again!), Tulsi Gabbard / Chris Hedges (Green)

2025 - ????: Charlie Baker / Sean Duffy (Republican)
2024 def: Gavin Newsom / Cory Booker (Democrat), Kyle Kulinski / Kaniela Ling (Democratic Revolution)

The Looong 90s

1993-2001: Bill Clinton/Al Gore (Democratic)
2001-2005: Al Gore/Bill Bradley (Democratic)
2000: def. John McCain/Christine Todd Whitman (Republican)
2005-2013: George Allen/Susan Collins (Republican)
2004: def. Al Gore/Bill Bradley (Democratic), Paul Wellstone/Howard Dean (Progressive)
2008: def. John F. Kennedy Jr./Russ Feingold (Democratic)

2013-2021: Hillary Rodham Clinton/Bill Richardson (Democratic)
2012: def. Susan Collins/Chuck Hagel (Republican)
2016: def. Tim Hutchinson/Mark A. Green (Republican)

2021-prsnt: Gordon H. Smith/Bob Franks (Republican)
2020: def. Bill Richardson/Harold Ford (Democratic), Joe Scarborough/Dan Boren (Patriotic Alliance)

This is my vision of the future. The Clinton Consensus will probably maintain dominance of the two parties and in order to beat Gore, Republicans will need to nominate a young fresh face like George Allen. He will restore the party to be more moderate than the Newt Gingrich Republican party. Then Hillary will become the first female president and do two terms of extreme liberalism. Finally Americans will get tired of her and nominate a true unifying moderate like Gordon Smith. Of course conservatives won't like that so there is a rebellion from Florida Governor Joe Scarborough and Oklahoma Senator Dan Boren representing the conservative wing of both parties fighting back against the superliberal Democrats and moderate Republicans.

Continuing the current trend (EDIT: that Excelsior just broke, nvm), here's my attempt at a c. 2014/5 list:

-2017: Barack Obama (Democratic)
2017-2021: Hillary Clinton (Democratic)
'16 (with Julián Castro) def. Chris Christie (Republican)
2021-2025: Lindsey Graham (Republican)
'20 (with Adam Laxalt) def. Hillary Clinton (Democratic), Rand Paul (Libertarian)
2025-2033: Kyrsten Sinema (Democratic)
'24 (with Amanda Renteria) def. Lindsey Graham (Republican)
'28 (with Amanda Renteria) def. Dan Patrick (Republican)
2033-: Amanda Renteria (Democratic)
'32 (with Coleman Young II) def. George P. Bush (Republican)

The Clinton administration was defined by its crises. Though the MERS outbreak technically began before her inauguration, it occupied much of her first year in office as she tried to backstop the insurance industry and establish a federal standard for infection control measures, the latter despite the opposition of a not insignificant wing of the Republican party. [1] Next there was the Second Korean War, won at great cost by NATO and the Republic of Korea, and the Baltic Crisis. The Republicans nominated Lindsey Graham, on the line that when the Third World War happened Hillary could not be trusted to manage it competently; anti-war members of both parties, meanwhile, flocked to the Libertarians, who nominated Rand Paul as their standard-bearer. Paul won Colorado and split the vote with Clinton everywhere else.

But when the war ended up being a damp squib, particularly after the 'Russian Spring' put billionaire Mikhail Khodorkovsky in office, the Graham administration seemed to founder. On domestic politics it was, certainly, not the Tea Party - the American people would never tolerate that. But it was all a bit square - slow to adapt to the new multiculturalism, while at the same time deeply dissatisfying to the shrinking but still massive evangelical contingent. Former Virginia Governor Dave Brat won only two states in the 2024 Republican primaries, but it was enough to prove that the right wing was growing dissatisfied with the Graham presidency.

Meanwhile, the Democrats were preparing to nominate their first woman President - and, for that matter, their first President from anywhere west of Texas. The two candidates of the Clinton wing of the party, Governor Amanda Rentería and Senator Tulsi Gabbard, split the vote, allowing the more radical Senator Kyrsten Sinema to win the eventual victory; Sinema duly picked Rentería as her running mate, and proceeded to finish the job of adapting the Democrats to the new world order. Her dovish, cosmopolitan sensibilities and thoroughgoing liberalism helped the party appeal to the newly dominant Generation X and Millennial contingent within the party, and to a country that for the first time was majority-minority. As in 2016, demographics really were destiny...

[1] Convergent? Maybe, but consider that the Ebola crisis was one of the biggest stories of 2014, and that the far-right had established their willingness to flout regulations as early as the Bundy standoff. I don't know that one would have been able to predict the sheer scale of the political divides over a pandemic, but I do think it would have been very easy to predict that a) a pandemic was going to happen b) states would get into pissing matches with the feds about it.

Thanks! I was deliberately trying to go for people who either had wildly different reputations back then ('Store-Brand McCain' Lindsey Graham, 'Normal Bisexual Democrat' Kyrsten Sinema, 'Mainstream Liberal Interventionist' Tulsi Gabbard though I deliberately didn't foreground that because I don't know how much one could have found out about her whole deal back in '15) or who just got forgotten (Renteria, Young, Bush is on his way there). The other inspiration is an article I read on FiveThirtyEight in like December 2015 about how Lindsey Graham had only gotten into the race to stop Rand Paul, and didn't know what to do with himself once it became clear that Paul wasn't going anywhere.

I can't take full credit for Young, though - I actually was pretty active on the FH forum in The Old Place back in the day, and I'm pretty sure he was in one of them though I deliberately have not gone back to look. [EDIT: I couldn't keep myself away - I'm pretty sure it was this TL, but he was in multiple different TLs and I honestly can't tell them apart at this point.]

Great work on the Year-punk lists everyone!

Here's an early 2006-punk UK list to accompany my US one:

List of Prime Ministers of the United Kingdom
1997-2008: Tony Blair (Labour)
1997 def: John Major (Conservative), Paddy Ashdown (Lib Dem)
2001 def: William Hague (Conservative), Charles Kennedy (Lib Dem)
2005 def: Michael Howard (Conservative), Charles Kennedy (Lib Dem)

2008-2014: Gordon Brown (Labour)
2009 def: David Cameron (Conservative), Sir Menzies Campbell (Lib Dem)
2014-2019: David Cameron (Conservative, then Conservative minority from 2018)
2014 def: Gordon Brown (Labour), Chris Huhne (Lib Dem)
2019-????: David Miliband (Labour-Lib Dem coalition)
2019 def: David Cameron (Conservative), Chris Huhne (Lib Dem)

Full early 2006 assumptions are in play here: the economy and the housing market will continue to do well forever; the 'war on terror' rumbles on in the background with occasional low-level terrorist atrocities and western interventions while Russia and China do nothing beyond their own borders; whispers of pandemics always turn out to be overhyped by the media and fizzle out; Scottish nationalism, Euroscepticism and immigration are all constantly talked about but nothing seems to actually result from them. I recall in 2006 in interviews leading Conservatives were quite open that they saw the 'Cameron project' as a two-election job, as nobody could seriously expect to overcome Labour's majority in one election. The rest is fairly self-explanatory.

Here's an idea: (Year)-punk lists where we try to guess how commentators at the time might have predicted future elections from their own perspective. You can probably go maybe 20 years into the future from then before you start running out of plausible candidates.

One could do this for any era (e.g. it'd probably be fairly possible to look up speculation in the Gilded Age US for future candidates) but it's obviously easiest when it's an era one's lived through. For example, here's my forward-looking list from circa early 2006 when I first started hearing about US politics on forums.

I think this may be the first of these I ever did, when I was trying to figure out where US politics would go next writing in late 2003. Because I was young and didn't know much about it, most of it is quite absurd. (I have filled in things like VPs and the 2012 onwards candidates, which I didn't think about at the time).

List of Presidents of the United States
2001-2005: George W. Bush / Dick Cheney (Republican)
2000 def: Al Gore / Joe Lieberman (Democratic)
2005-2009: Howard Dean / Wesley Clark (Democratic)
2004 def: George W. Bush / Dick Cheney (Republican)
2009-2013: Jeb Bush / Dino Rossi (Republican)
2008 def: Howard Dean / Wesley Clark (Democratic)
2013-2021: Evan Bayh / Peter Deutsch (Democratic)
2012 def: Jeb Bush / Dino Rossi (Republican)
2016 def: Pat Toomey / Herman Cain (Republican)


The basic idea here is the notion that it's now impossible for Republicans to win the popular vote (as was discussed pre-2004, and has since come back again) but they can still win in the electoral college, and there's a focus on Florida as a swing state due to being influenced by 2000 attitudes. I remember thinking that it looked as though Bush was on track to lose in 2004 (due to a slightly misleading way the papers here presented the poll of polls) but then it felt like the election might be a poisoned chalice and could lead to a couple of one-term presidents.
