1. I'm surprised Kornacki didn't run the numbers on that, given how he framed it.

I did, some time back.

If every Anderson vote had gone to Carter, Reagan still would have won. In that scenario, there were 4 states that were within 1%. Carter would have needed to flip 3 of them, including the two big ones, to win.

Nothing short of ending the hostage crisis was going to move that many votes.
