Political reporter Joe Williams and Ben White, chief economic correspondent for Politico, join “Viewpoint” host Eliot Spitzer to analyze whether the GOP will change its views, particularly on social issues, given the 2012 election results.
“The problem you have, at least in the House Republican caucus — they don’t view the election results … the same way that the president does. They see that the president won solidly. They also retained their House majority — a lot of them won in very comfortable districts by large margins. So I don’t think they need to … change their positions very much,” White says.
