MANUFACTURING REAGAN
Speaker: Kevin Cronin
At the end of the 1976 presidential campaign, Ronald Reagan’s political career was regarded as being washed out. He was looked upon as being too elderly and his opinions too right wing for contemporary America. Yet four years later, he beat the incumbent president, Jimmy Carter and went on to win a very convincing re-election contest in 1984. Even today, more than 40 years later, he remains an icon of conservative politics in the United States. The transformation in his political fortune from being an electoral liability to a popular vote-winner did not occur because he moderated his conservative views and moved to the centre. Rather he became a figurehead for a political movement that deliberately and successfully set out to ‘move the dial’ and propel America rightwards. Examining this phenomenon shows much about how democracy and capitalism interact.
