He lays it all out as to why by demographic groups too.
His problem is that the people were a lot less partisan and polarized in 1980 than today. Back then, elections were a lot more fluid and unpredictable because you had a lot more people who were either truly independent, or token members of a party they are not loyal to.

Today with the internet, talk radio, etc the average person is a hell of a lot more informed (or at least thinks they are informed), and have picked a side.

Gettable voters are a tiny fraction.
