Posted on 04/10/2013 6:56:24 PM PDT by Maelstorm
President Obama has been struggling to push his agenda through Congress and boost his popularity, but now there is another bit of bad news for him to chew on: A poll indicates that Obama would lose an election to Ronald Reagan, the champion of conservatism, if such a choice were possible today. And it would be a landslide.
Fifty-eight percent of Americans would choose Reagan, according to a survey conducted by Kelton Research for the National Geographic Channel. Reagan, a Republican who won the elections of 1980 and 1984, would even capture 51 percent of voters aged 18 to 34, even though young people were a key constituency for Democrat Obama in 2008 and 2012.

As RR once said, bold colors trump pale pastels.
Stil frightfully low considering its a charismatic proven winner against a whiny proven loser
Which means that when Sarah runs, she’ll win.
These kind of polls make me wonder, what would the numbers be if the media were neutral?
I’m amazed that so much truth about Reagan somehow manages to reach people who can’t remember a president who left office so many years ago, think where he would be if he got JFK and Roosevelt, and Obama type press (and those three got true media).
But but but he didn’t support gay marriage and he opposed abortion?
It would be really interesting if they did a poll that pitted Bill Clinton VS President Reagan.
The subhuman filth that is the American voter would never prefer Reagan to the kenyan.
"You won't get gun control by disarming law-abiding citizens. There's only one way to get real gun control: Disarm the thugs and the criminals, lock them up, and if you don't actually throw away the key, at least lose it for a long time...
It's a nasty truth, but those who seek to inflict harm are not fazed by gun controllers. I happen to know this from personal experience."
~ President Reagan, 1983
Do you really need a poll to tell you that?
Fifty-eight percent of the people would vote for Reagan, and the other forty-two percent are mentally defective or criminals.
will = win
Someone ought to notify the gutless wonders in the Senate who are caving on every vital issue.
“Poll Finds Reagan Beats Obama in a Landslide”.....
Alas, we HAVE NO REaGAN!
It’s not even close. With Reagan dead or suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, he’s still immeasurably better than Obama (just like a date today with Marilyn Monroe is better than a date with a serial axe murderer). As for the Reagan who served in the White House, he’s one of our top five presidents in all of our country’s history. As far as I’m concerned, the usurper in our White House does not belong on the list of presidents, but he ranks in the bottom two among all White House residents in America’s history. The only question is whether the drug-addled communist can avoid triggering a second war between the states and thus perhaps avoid coming in dead last.
Yes there was a fakeness in 2008 and 2012. The fakeness in 2008 was we being told embracing global warming, immigration reform, and big government was the answer. Everyone said Mitt Romney was the candidate to run though McCain won the nom in 2008. Reality is not liberal dominance. Reality is real conservatives running real conservative campaigns on both fiscal and social issues and attacking our opponents relentlessly like maybe they want to win and believe the crap they say they do for a change. Reagan wasn’t perfect but he was unapologetic in his defense of liberty and of America values and American capitalism. That message has shown that it can win and win big. We won in 2010 but then instead of running hard against Obamacare and hard against Obama’s social and fiscal liberalism we nominated a guy who was a squish and had put in place a Health Care mandate and who said he “was proud to be called the grandfather of Obamacare”. That is the unreality that exists in the GOP.
I hope that she or someone like her runs. I want someone that doesn’t retreat when a liberal yells boo.
lol Yeah I always laugh at “Republican” consultants that recommend moving away from those issues to win. Seems like most GOP candidates in the north east embrace those issues and they get fewer and they get elected less and less. A fake GOP that is no better than a Democrat will always lose.
No but with all the talk about how we need to embrace liberal policies and positions to win Reagan still rides high and someone would have to be a total idiot not to understand what he meant to conservatism. He transcended the media by speaking in a plain commonsense fashion with stories that anyone could understand.
Yes. Why in the world would anyone follow someone who appears to stand for nothing and can’t even speak convincingly of the policies and positions he claims to believe? That is the problem. If you look at the GOP who win as bold conservatives you see a clear ability to articulate conservatism.
2016 is a make or break election for me. If the GOP force feed us another washy guy who can’t articulate conservative positions because he doesn’t really believe them I’m out. We ended up with someone who spent a billion dollars and didn’t hurt Obama at all. Now the same consultants who force fed us Romney are trying to blame conservatism for their loss.
