Jimmy Carter Was Polling Better than Reagan in 1980

Not that it means anything today. The New York Times doesn't think it does. But the pullquote here is still interesting:
Since Gallup began presidential polling in 1936, only one candidate has overcome a deficit that large, and this late, to win the White House: Ronald Reagan, who trailed President Jimmy Carter 47 percent to 39 percent in a survey completed on Oct. 26, 1980.

So, go forth and vote. You never do know.

Hmm. Well maybe it is possible.
