Hi, Im new here. I want to know what are the chances of President Carter beating Ronald Reagan and winning the presidency in 1984, pulling a Cleveland?

Welcome to the forum. Smiley

Anyway, Reagan would have to royally screw up the economy in order to allow Jimmy back into the Whitehouse. One idea is that Reagan puts the fed under Presidential control and doesn't go through Volcker's plans, thuse meaning that inflation keeps on rising.

About as likely as me marrying Megan Fox.

Reagan probably would have won Minnesota and won 535 to 3.

Lets say Reagan ails to help the economy, ignoring Volcker, etc. Carter can say he got the Hostages out of Iran, albeit last minute.

If Carter did run, would he face any tough primary challenges, and would their be a viable third party canidate?

Agreed with the previous posts. Reagan wins all but DC.

This could be an interesting election, though. Who does Carter pick for VP this time?

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

Agreed. Reagan would win 535-3. He would have to be an utter screw up in every aspect of his job for Jimmy to even have a slim chance.

Maybe Massachusetts or Rhode Island would go for Carter, his home state possibly (but I kind of doubt it).

Carter would have to hope that the press catches news of Reagan having a Lemonparty with his cabinet in order for him to have a chance.  And when I say chance I mean winning more than 40 electoral votes.

That's as bad as Goatse. You are sick, sick, sick!  Does any else know what lemon party is? Should I even tell them? I think you should. ....but if that did happen, I am guessing Carter might be able to carry a few big states and a few rural D ones. Think Dukakis but maybe one more big state.

the result is a sense that we were told to attend a lavish dinner party that was going to be wonderful and by the time we got there, all the lobster and steak had been eaten, a fight had broken out, the police had been called and all that was left was warm beer and chips.

It's the internet, chances are they probably already know.
Also, I think that Carter would do somewhat better than 40 evs, just put that in there as a satirical post to the predictions on this page.

If the situation comes, where Democrats want to run Carter again, do you think Carter would pick Mondale as his running mate?

Carter would most likely pick Gary Hart or someone else. Mondale would stay retired and would run in 1988 with this scenario
