At first, I thought I'd just let the "the left abandoned Carter" business go. But because it is such an obviously untrue assertion, perhaps I should address it.

Anyone who is even mildly familiar with the 1980 election knows that it had nothing whatsoever to do with "the left." Rather, Reagan's victory can be attributed to a single, specific democratic subgroup, known as the "Reagan Democrats." These were the conservative democrats, and absolutely, without any question, NOT "the left."
