Matthew Dallek and Robert Merry on Conservative Politics in 1968 Robert Merry and Matthew Dallek talked about conservative politics in 1968 as part of C-SPAN’s “1968: America in Turmoil” series. Perceived liberal excesses and disenchantment with the size of government gave rise to the political right, the resurgence of Richard Nixon, and a Republican presidential victory in 1968, foreshadowing the conservative revolution to come. Mr. Merry is the editor of The American Conservative and author of Where They Stand: The American Presidents in the Eyes of Voters and Historians. Matthew Dallek, a George Washington University professor in the Graduate School of Political Management, is the author of The Right Moment: Ronald Reagan’s First Victory and the Decisive Turning Point in American Politics.

The program began with a three-minute clip from former President Nixon’s 1968 Republican presidential nomination acceptance speech. close
