ABSTRACT
This article assesses how U.S. President Jimmy Carter did in the 1976 Democratic primaries and discusses what lesson Ronald Reagan should learn from it. Carter lost in five Democratic primaries in 1976. The author notes however that each of Carter's plunges was preceded by an equally giddy rise. The author observes a pattern for this. According to him, Carter does well as long as the attention of the public is focused on other people, either wholly or partly, and he maintains that the president knows this.
