1980's nostalgia: Poll finds Reagan beats Obama in a landslide

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 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.

The survey was conducted to promote National Geographic’s upcoming mini-series about the 1980s, when Reagan was in the White House.
