I remember the Reagan landslide in 1980. About this time in the process, Carter was ahead by 30 points! And what happened on election day? Hmmmmmmmm?

I get all that... but we don't have a Reagan now, and today's America bears little resemblance to the one that elected him in 1980.

Granted but actually, conditions in this country are also far WORSE than they were in 1980. I think that the vast majority of Americans will vote the pain they feel in their wallets, be that pain at the gas pumps, through job loss, belt tightening and having to do far more with far less or a combination of the above, it's going to be far more potent than it was for Ronnie. Remember, too Reagan started out in politics as a Democrat. So have a number of prominent Republicans. I think Mitt has a durn good chance of a blowout. One honest man one honest ANONYMOUS vote. That's what took Jimmy Peanut down. When the curtains shut or the ballot is in the machine, folks are anonymous and can vote how they really feel. People are REALLY hurting now and I'll bet it gets worse by November.
