The 1980 Presidential election saw Republican Ronald Reagan go against incumbent President Jimmy Carter. The former Governor of California won in a landslide, earning 489 electoral college votes compared to Carter’s 49. Carter was weakened by the ongoing Iran hostage crisis and the economy was struggling. This all culminated in a decisive win for Reagan and control of the Senate for Republicans, the first time this had happened in 28 years.
