More 1980 Election Parallels: Passing Out and Falling Down
September 12, 2016
The more you think about it, the more you realize 2016 gets more and more like 1980 every day. As you ponder Hillary Clinton’s fall from grace (even David Axelrod is trashing her now), you might remember Jimmy Carter’s collapse. I’m not talking about his collapse on election night. I’m talking about one of the two incidents that psychologically destroyed Carter’s image as a leader. In a moment, I’ll remind you of the collapse.
Here’s My Electoral Map Prediction

Yes, I’m feeling a wave toward Romney. My gut tells me this year is a lot like 1980. 1980 Was A Dead Heat The final Gallup poll that year had a dead heat. Time Magazine’s November 3, 1980, called the race a dead heat. So did Newsweek. The press was hoping John B. Anderson, a former Republican Congressman running for president as an independent, would siphon votes from Reagan. He did siphon votes from Reagan, but not nearly enough.

The country is anxious to find strong leaders —the evidence is overwhelming—and the public has little faith that Jimmy Carter has the ability, let alone the programs, to solve the nation’s problems.
Waning US Influence

Pro-Western governments in these countries have fallen to anti-American forces or diminished their support for the US since Barack Obama became president. * Lebanon** Jordan** Yemen** Qatar** Egypt** Turkey Obama’s campaign promise to restore respect for America around the world is a joke.

The next president will have more than a financial catastrophe to fix.
It’s 1978 All Over Again **UPDATE: Thaddeus McCotter Agrees With Me**

The news might seem unimportant to us in the USA: Day after day they marched, tens of thousands strong, defiant chanting demonstrators surging through the streets of Cairo, a capital unaccustomed to the shouts and echoes of dissent.
