Reagan won a mandate because of "Reagan Democrats"....when you can point to a segment of the opposing party and label them like that, you have a mandate.
Can you point out any "Obama Republicans"? Did not think so.
He won over a majority of the country. But that majority wasn't conservative or Republican enough for you, therefore, no mandate.
Got it. In no way is that point of view being fueled by a spiteful fever dream.
