  Morning in America - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Morning in America" is the common name of an effective political campaign television commercial formally titled "Prouder, Stronger, Better" and featuring the opening line "It's morning again in America." The ad was part of the 1984 U.S. presidential campaign of Republican Party candidate Ronald Reagan.
It featured a montage of images of Americans going to work and a calm, optimistic narration that suggested that improvements to the U.S. economy since his 1980 election were due the Ronald Reagan's policies and asked voters why they would want to return to the pre-Reagan policies of Democrats like his opponent.
"Bill Bennett's Morning in America" is the name of prominent conservative William Bennett's radio talk show, a direct reference to the ad.

 Sample Chapter for Troy, G.: Morning in America: How Ronald Reagan Invented the 1980's.

There was a sense in the 1980s of "Morning in America," as the economy soared, the Soviet Union faltered, and American patriotism surged.

 Guardian | Bush aims to dodge tough poll issues
Senior figures close to Bush have spent months examining previous presidential campaigns in an effort to shape a winning strategy against a potentially tricky electoral backdrop.
They have settled on an approach echoing Ronald Reagan's dreamlike 'morning in America' re-election campaign of 1984, which successfully portrayed another divisive Republican President as a moderate 'father of the nation' in a series of television adverts which were light on actual politics but heavy on soft-focus camera work.
More surprisingly, Bush's team has also drawn lessons from Bill Clinton's successful 1996 campaign, which depicted the then incumbent as someone who was focused on doing his job, passing laws and making decisions, rather than taking part in a political campaign - what is called a 'Rose Garden strategy'.
