Ronald Reagan granted amnesty to more illegal immigrants than any modern president. Republican candidates keep dropping his name while advocating acton that is inconsistent with his legacy. What's more important to the election: his name or legacy.

Do you understand what bias is? Can you give a specific example of NPR's bias?

It's a smart strategy on their part. A bit like someone invoking JFK or of JFK or LBJ invoked FDR. The power of the name, even if used incorrectly, can boost someone's standing. Given Reagan's reputation with GOP voters and the general public, it

MATT - I have a challenge for you (if you choose to accept it!). Find RR's 1979 poli platform from before the GOP Primary. Compare to candidates from GOP and DNC today in a series of polls. Take a point, ask if it was RR or Sanders, Trump etc.

Republicans have a long legacy of buying votes.
