Grandees were gone from this week’s Republican convention, replaced by Trump family members and ordinary folk caught in the culture wars. The president has also kicked aside the three pillars that propped up Ronald Reagan’s Republicans: moral and global leadership plus sound finances. What do Republicans stand for now?

We speak to Hogan Gidley from the Trump campaign and Elliott Morris, data journalist for The Economist.

John Prideaux, The Economist's US editor, hosts with Charlotte Howard, New York bureau chief, and Idrees Kahloon, US policy correspondent.
