McCain’s Hidden Advantage

On January 19, 2008, in General, by Neil Stevens

If Republicans are starting to think McCain has it, then it may be over. This is a long standing pattern in the post-Nixon party:

  • Ford defeats Reagan, making it Reagan’s turn.
  • Reagan defeats Bush, making it Bush’s turn.
  • Bush defeats Dole, making it Dole’s turn.
  • Bush defeats McCain, making it McCain’s turn now?

Obviously there’s one break in the pattern, where nobody got a turn from a loss in 1996, but three of four isn’t bad.

If the pattern holds and McCain wins this, I wonder if Romney or Huckabee will get a turn.
