dc.description.abstract Before 1992, religious conservatives had been an important voting bloc for Republican presidential candidates. They provided crucial monetary and organizational support, but they were often dissatisfied with their lack of prominence within the party. The 1992 Republican National Convention marked a turning point for both religious conservatives and the Republican Party. At that convention, the Christian Right demonstrated its power within the party by influencing the platform committee and the tenor of the convention. The convention demonstrated that religious conservatives were no longer outsiders in the party, but were instead important players. The convention marked a watershed event in modern American politics because it ensured the survival of the partnership between religious conservatives and the Republican Party. en
