(LOS ANGELES TIMES) If presidential politics ever involved time travel, PresidentObama might be in a little trouble.

If an election between Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama were held today, 58% would vote for Reagan over Obama, according to a survey of 1,000 Americans age 18 and older conducted by Kelton Research for the National Geographic Channel. Though when the field is narrowed to people ages 18-34 — those either too young to have known Reagan as president or too young to remember much — the gap shrinks to 51% in favor of Reagan.

However, the poll does have a margin of error of 3.1%, meaning Obama could still have an advantage among young people. No word on how he would fare against James Polk.
