George Will on Modern American Conservatism

George Will on Modern American Conservatism

Show Notes

George Will, author of The Conservative Sensibility, says conservatism is “an orphan persuasion.” Will, who changed his voter affiliation from Republican to unaffiliated four years ago, thinks conservatism is under threat — both from progressives and elements inside the Republican Party. In a broad-reaching discussion with Susan Page, Washington bureau chief for USA Today, he talks about the transformation of the Republican Party, the 2020 election, and the link between Christian evangelicals and conservatism.

This conversation, held July 20, 2020, was part of the McCloskey Speaker Series at the Aspen Institute, held by Aspen Community Programs.
