You spent time on Watergate, but not on Ford and Carter.  While the Iran Hostage Crisis eroded Carter’s standing, he was already the target of a populist backlash led by the Religious Right, somewhat reminiscent of the Trump Campaign, though Reagan had more dignity.  In 1980, Reagan relied on the religious vote like no other President before or since.  He was perhaps the first GOP candidate to reach Catholics who opposed abortion on moral grounds.  Up until the historic Roe v.
