Reagan won because Anderson split the dem vote with Carter.

Presidential Election of 1980:

Ronald Wilson Reagan: 50.7%
James Earl Carter, Jr.: 41.0%
John Bayard Anderson: 6.6%
Ed Clark: 1.1%
Barry Commoner: 0.3%

Even if you add all of the other candidates together, you get less than Reagan's total (obviously, since he won a majority of the vote).

So, your statement is incorrect.
