I wonder if Reagan could win a Republican Primary today.

JediG

I think he would be ashamed to be a member of the party of such gutless wimps who weren't smart enough to use the leverage they had and were outmaneuvered at every step, backed themselves into a corner, conveyed weakness, and didn't have the intestinal fortitude to do the right thing. Who would want to lead a bunch sorry RINO's in the first place?

You are talking very much about the Republican Party that had just lost to Carter.

Could Reagan win today? With relative ease. Folks from too far left and too religious and too stupid to understand the Reagan strategy of not attacking fellow Republicans all try to act is if they are Reagan.


They all foolishly think it was persona. He was a non-religious person who captured the morality that existed in Americans that is still there. He also understood he had to actively battle the press. He was not passive in defense.

Yes Reagan could win today. He understood and used the pulpit he was handed and would have done so as a candidate for the nomination. He had the money from connections to not get blown away by another candidates money alone.

No problem IMO
