26. Carter failed because the media said so.
I don't think he's a born again, I think he only had to do it once. Carter was betrayed by the military and the GOP during the hostage fiasco. Much like when Kissenger interfered with the Paris Peace talks during the VietNam war causing the disruption of the peace talks and the derailing of Nixon's political opponent.
GOPers will not hesitate to perform any type of lying stealing murdering business to make certain they win.
