What Is the Biggest Political Threat to Social Conservatives? (VIDEO)


Frank Cannon is president of the American Principles Project and a respected conservative political strategist with over 30 years of experience.

I think the single biggest threat is economic elites who actively oppose the social issue agenda and find it distasteful and find it socially in the parties and in the milieus in which they operate. But secondarily, and equally as important, is that the social issues movement has tied itself to the economics of the Republican elites, and what that means is the interests of working men and women — of labor — is being confounded by people who, in addition, oppose the actual social issues positions of their supposed allies.
