ABSTRACT
This article considers the capacity of both Ronald Reagan and U.S. President Jimmy Carter to challenge each other in the 1980 U.S. presidential elections. Carter had advantages, one of which was having two opponents both whom were deemed unsuited to run for president by the majority. The author believes that Reagan was chosen as Carter's challenger because voters saw in him a blend of sincerity, native wit and seniority. Both the Democrats and Republicans believe that Carter and Reagan are good men.
