Is Reagan Electable?

April 1980
National Review;4/4/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 7, p390
The article presents some electoral facts related to Presidential Candidate Ronald Reagan. In Illinois, Reagan got around 30 percent of the crossover Democratic and independent vote, while swamping all opposition among regular Republicans. In every contest since Iowa, with the exception of Massachusetts, Reagan has run far ahead of predictions. Reagan has demonstrated that he is not a fringe candidate at all. He has twice been elected governor of the largest state, and he has demonstrated broad national appeal in the primaries.
