You answered your own question, but there could have been #neverReagan Republicans.

My grandfather left his ballot blank in 1984 because he saw Reagan as a Goldwaterite, but then voted for Bush in 1988 and 1992.

Anyway, a pro-establishment voter who thought Bush was smarter than Reagan and more qualified than Reagan or Dukakis.

The fairness doctrine was still in effect in 1984, so its absence could have resulted in the crime issue being presented in a one-sided matter in 1988.
