The PoD is in 1916, this is a very different Reagan. He's a hawkish liberal Democrat whose Vice President was Jimmy Carter.Ronald Reagan wasn't president in 1979. Jimmy Carter was. Reagan was elected in November of 1980 and inaugurated January 20, 1981. I'd suggest you change the president it was changed under (Reagan to Carter), though, because I can see America in the 1970s looking at the Electoral College after the dueling shitstorms of Nixon and Carter's presidencies and thinking, "Dang, this thing never works! We should get rid of it!" Meanwhile, no one's going to really support abolishing the Electoral College in the 1980s, when Reagan won both elections in landslide victories and America saw the EC as doing its job perfectly. Even better, have Gerald Ford win the popular vote in '76, but Carter clinches the electoral votes and is elected president. When all the crap like the Energy Crisis and Iranian Hostage Crisis break out, America will only have the Electoral College to blame.
