Frank Questions

  1. Frank downplays race as a motive for the migration of the working class to the Republican party, choosing instead to focus on culture. Is he ignoring root causes when he does this?
  2. Frank uses abortion as a major event that turned workers away from the Democratic Party. Were they already primed to turn away after the Civil Rights Era, or was Roe v Wade truly that traumatic?
  3. If Kansas is an “early adapter,” would it not make sense that it turned red, responding to the wave of Reagan conservatism?
