1980: Reagan and a big election night

Many years ago, I was following the 1980 presidential election results on radio and TV. The last minute polls were calling for a close race. It was confusing, to say the least.

Around 7 pm, the Eastern results came in and Carter looked weak.  

By 9 pm, the Southern results started projecting a Reagan victory.  

By 11 pm, the Western results made it a landslide. 

Some things don’t get old. Instead, they get better with age. Reagan’s 1980 landslide victory is one of those things.
