And Now the Good News

Buckley Jr., W.M.F.
October 1976
National Review;10/1/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 37, p1082
The article discusses some issues concerning the presidential election in the U.S. as of October 1976. The author emphasizes a revival of Republican morale. The campaign of Ronald Reagan for the presidency was a huge flop because he talked about the themes he thought the people should be concerned about. Late this winter, Reagan and fellow candidate Jimmy Carter were virtually neck to neck in Gallup polls. In October Reagan trails 64 to 28 percent. In the meantime, the edge of Carter over President Gerald R. Ford is down to nine points.
