Seeing Red: Marshalling Cultural Anger in Middle America
In the last two elections, the conservative values rhetoric has been effective in getting working class voters in middle America to vote in spite of their own interests.

On this edition, we'll hear from Thomas Frank, author of What's the Matter with Kansas: How Conservatives Won the Political Heart of America. Frank suggests how a "thirty-year backlash" has shaped the country's politics. He says right wing conservatives have marshalled cultural anger to achieve their economic goals. - www.radioproject.org
