ABSTRACT
This article speculates on the political options of Ronald Reagan after appearing to have lost the fight for the U.S. presidential nomination in 1976. Two reasons for his defeat include: the incumbent U.S. President Gerald Ford is difficult to defeat and a challenge to an incumbent President posed by someone who came from the far end of the political spectrum is hard. Reagan is considered as an unusual man in politics. Viewing his race ideologically, Reagan's signal victory has been his forcing Ford to move toward, rather than away from, Reagan.
