A neoconservative is a Republican voter who opposes affirmative action and supports free enterprise, but is not motivated by religious values. Neoconservatives tend to support free trade and immigration. They believe that democracy can and should be installed in Muslim countries such as Iraq and Iran. Neoconservatives support foreign wars such as the War in Iraq.

The leading publications of neoconservatives are Commentary and The Weekly Standard. Many Washington, D.C. think tanks, such as the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) and the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), are dominated by neoconservatives.

Neoconservatives take libertarian positions on social issues, and are unlikely to agree with Christian conservatives on issues like abortion, prayer in school and same-sex marriage. Neoconservatives are small in number but dominate television talk shows and advisory positions in Republican Administrations.
