And the mainstream media was skewing the polls just as hard then as they are now. Carter really was a bumbling idiot and the debates just exposed his stupidity to a wider audience. I don't think Obama is as stupid as Carter but he's handicapped by an inability to express his true intentions and get reelected at the same time.
