Jimmy Carter: Reagan Won Because of 3rd Party Candidate (Video)

This was crazy. President Jimmy Carter made a strange claim on MSNBC’s “Hardball”:

“Ronald Reagan only had less than 51% of the vote, but he won because of a third-party candidate.”

Via Breitbart TV:

It’s been 40 years and America’s worst president still can’t believe he lost.

Ronald Reagan won in 1980 with 50.75% of the vote and 44 of 50 states.

Carter only won 6 states and 41% of the vote. It was a thumping.
