Reagan would never make it as Governor of California today, so he would have to move to Texas. And Texas is slowly turning Blue .... the circumstances of 1980 are not there today, but maybe a Reagan-type could win. The most Reaganesque candidate today is Joe Biden (in character, if not in policies).I don’t believe the 1979 UK Labour Party or Jimmy Carter would be electable today. Thatcher probably wouldn’t but Reagan would win.
