Whitaker, Robert W.
October 1976
National Review;10/29/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 41, p1182
The article recommends strategies for attacking Democratic presidential nominee Jimmy Carter with the aim of getting the populist class to vote for U.S. President Gerald Ford in the November 1976 elections. It explains why the populist lower middle class will vote for Carter in the forthcoming elections. It argues that in order to get the populist vote, Ford's campaign managers should use the tactic of ridicule against Carter. Moreover, it suggests that Republicans highlight Carter's ignorance on the issue of tax reform and point out the emptiness of his promises in the areas of government reorganization and reform.
