Meghan McCain (born October 23, 1984) is an American writer known primarily for being the daughter of U.S. Senator and former presidential candidate John McCain. Meghan identifies as a Republican, but this is in name only as the majority of her views are liberal.
When she reached the age of 18, McCain registered as independent and continued to be listed as such until 12 June 2008, when she changed her party registration to Republican shortly after her father became the Republican Party's presidential nominee. In the 2004 presidential elections she voted for the Democratic Party's nominee, John Kerry.
McCain is fully supportive of the homosexual agenda and endorses all of its goals including same-sex "marriage" and the repeal of DADT. She also supports teaching high school students about contraceptives rather than having abstinence education, and believes in man-made global warming. Not much is known about her views regarding fiscal issues, but her support for Occupy Wall Street suggests that on those matters she tilts to the left as well.
McCain, like many other RINOs, chose to distance herself from the principled statements made by pro-life leader Todd Akin, stating that in her opinion he is "an embarrassment to the party" and that Akin's comments were "delusional".
