The Road Ahead for the GOP

Wednesday, guest host Thad Hall takes a look at the future of the GOP. Since President Barack Obama's election, the Republican Party has gone from down-and-out to resurgent. Republicans are dominating the money race and they seem to have momentum. There are signs of possible rocky roads ahead though: rapid growth in the Latino population, shifting attitudes on social issues and the politics of austerity could again reverse the party's fortunes. We'll look at the trends and ask what they could mean for politics in America.

Guests

Quin Monson, Director, Center for the Study of Elections and Democracy, Brigham Young University

Alan Abromowitz, Professor of Political Science at Emory University and author of numerous books including The Polarized Public

Mickey Edwards, former Republican congressman, Vice President of The Aspen Institute and author of the forthcoming book The Parties Versus the People: How to Turn Republicans and Democrats into Americans

Correction: President Barack Obama's title was omitted in the original show description.
