I can't speak for Reagan, but he did eventually win, and look what became of his presidency.
He refused to go for the throat AND he was not all that conservative. Reagan RAN as a conservative and absolutely DESTROYED BOTH Carter AND Mondale in electoral landslides.

He literally saved the free world (with help from Maggie and others) AND he took an economy that was in FAR worse shape than Obama inherited and from that created one of the longest and deepest economic expansions in history.
