A Facelift for the GOP?

[soundcloud id=’67529436′]

With President Obama staying in the White House, will the still-divided Congress finally find a way to work together?

Assistant professor of politics Jeff Smith is back for Research Radio’s latest episode, “A Facelift for the GOP?”  In last week’s edition, Smith was skeptical of Congress’s ability to overcome legislative gridlock. Smith continues this tone after last week’s big win for the Democrats and rough loss for Republicans.  This post-election follow-up looks at what’s in store for Washington’s lame duck session and the months following, as well as Smith’s advice for the future vision of the Republican party.
