Reagan supported Nixon in 1960, Goldwater in 1964, Ford in 1976 and GHW Bush in 1992.
So whats your point?
“Reagan supported Nixon in 1960, Goldwater in 1964, Ford in 1976 and GHW Bush in 1992.

I'm not sure exactly what your point is either but Reagan's support of Ford in 1976 was not without some ambiguity.
Reagan supported Ford only after vigorously challenging him for the Republican nomination. There were several Ford aids who felt that Ford would not have lost the general election to Carter had Reagan not challenged him in the primaries. As close as the 1976 election was, there might be some merit to their argument.
The point is, given the choice, Thompson prefers Howard Bakers and John McCains to better men.
I mean Joe lunchbucket that works all week and on the weekend goes hunting, fishing, or to the range.
Most every election the NRA will endorse a candidate for POTUS but few have ever had the NRA president out campaigning for them.
When Fred ran for the Senate Charlton Heston personally went to Tenn to campaign for Fred. Thats a tough act to follow.
SS is going to go broke if something isn’t done about it.
If Fred can assure the younger voters that they wont get taxed to death and can let the seniors know they wont be kicked to the curb he can sell the truth to them.
President Bush tried but couldn’t articulate the message over the liberal MSM. I think Fred can do that.
Everyone is sick of taxes and he can sell his message there.
Fix the borders, stop the illegals, then we’ll talk. Fred can sell that.
I can see Fred getting lots of crossover, except the rabid barking moonbats, code pinkos, welfare leeches, queers, abortion clinic workers, and some confused sucker mom’s. ( or is that soccer mom’s?)
When Fred wins the nomination I don’t think the election will be that close.
