Ronald Reagan
Republican

The 1980 United States presidential election in Indiana took place on November 4, 1980. All 50 states and The District of Columbia were part of the 1980 United States presidential election. State voters chose 13 electors to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

Indiana was won by former California Governor Ronald Reagan (R) by 19 points.[1] The state has voted Republican in every election since 1964, except in 2008 when it did not vote for John McCain. Despite that as recent as 2004, Republicans would maintain a similar margin to 1980 in Indiana and even did thus in 2016.
