North Carolina Perspective

April 1976
National Review;4/16/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 13, p374
This article offers update on the presidential primaries in the U.S. as of April 1976. The victory of Ronald Reagan in the North Carolina primary has significant implications. U.S. President Gerald Ford had been winning in the first five primaries, however, it cannot be considered as overwhelming margins. A large proportion of Republicans prefer an alternative to the current President, and this thinking may have to do with particular policies, style of leadership, White House personnel, or other factors. Ford still lead the Republican nomination, but Reagan's victory in the North Carolina reminds him that discontent with his administration is a reality. During the primaries for the Democratic Party, Jimmy Carter has shown that he can attract a broad spectrum of voters, and he may be in the process of defining a new national Democratic consensus.
