Banter #77: The future of conservatism


On this week’s Banter podcast, Reihan Salam, policy adviser at Economics 21, contributing editor at National Review, and co-author of the book “Grand New Party: How Conservatives Can Win the Working Class and Save the American Dream,” takes some time out of his busy schedule to sit down with hosts Stu James and Henrik Temp (filling in for Andrew Rugg).

Reihan talks to us about the fate of the GOP and what conservatives need to do going forward in order to win back the White House. He gives great insight into how Republicans should handle touchy social issues, particularly gay marriage, in the future. As an added bonus, we also discuss what animals would vote Republican if given the chance.

You can stream the podcast online here or download it from iTunes here.

Also, please be sure to check out AEI’s “Fusion or fissures: The future of a conservative governing coalition” event from last Friday, in which Reihan was a panel member.
