    2 is D. Reagan's nickname was "The Great Communicator". He was a former Gov of California but the Rust Belt includes all or parts of NY (western part); Penn, Ohio, West Va, Indiana, Michigan & Wisconsin.

    7 might be C--recession hurt the Manufacturing industry (Blue-collar workers). Also President Carter's cancellation of the wheat sale to the Soviet Union & Eastern Europe really hurt farmers in 1980.

    18 is D. A Supreme Court decision stopped the recount. It was Gore won New York & almost all of New England on the Atlantic coast as well as Calif, Oregon, & Washington State on the Pacific coast.
