Remember now, Reagan's opponent in the 1984 presidential election was former VP Walter Mondale. There were questions about Reagan's age, and his performance was weak during the first debate. Alot of people wondered if he was up to the task of being president for another term. But he did well in the second debate, and confronted questions about his age, stating, I will not make age an issue of this campaign. I am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent's youth and inexperience, which generated applause and laughter from members of the audience, and even from Mondale himself. Reagan's landslide victory saw Mondale carry only his home state of Minnesota (by 3800 votes) and the District of Columbia, this was a shock to some of us die hard tree hugging liberals. Reagan won a record 525 electoral votes total (of 538 possible), and received 58.8% of the popular vote to Mondale's 40.6%. I may not be a supporter of his party, but I feel he won this on his own merit and he was a good man.

Not to deflect from your brilliant post Naomi, but did Reagan win 49 states.

Going by more recent republican wins its all very suspicious.

Ficticious times and ficticious presidents.

During his lifetime Ronald Reagan ran in four elections and won all four by landslides. He left the White House with the highest approval rating of any departing president since public-opiion polls had been conducted. Tough to argue that Ronald Reagan was not overwhelmingly popular.
