Republican pollster Conor Maguire said in an interview that aired Tuesday on "What America's Thinking" that the growing economy under President TrumpDonald John TrumpJustice says it will recommend Trump veto FISA bill Fauci: Nominating conventions may be able to go on as planned Poll: Biden leads Trump by 11 points nationally MORE has given Republicans more room to focus on social issues. 

"If the economy is doing better, it does give people a chance to think more about maybe some social issues, things that they need to focus on," Maguire, a senior client strategist at WPA Intelligence, told Hill.TV's Jamal Simmons. 

"I think for the better part of the last 10 years, Republicans have gone more towards the fiscal conservative-type issues, and have not really focused on the social conservative things, where you've seen a lot of Democrats focus more on those social issues," he continued. 

Trump has appointed conservative judges to courts across the country, as well as the Supreme Court. 

The president has also implemented socially conservative policies such as his ban on transgender service members in the military. 

The Supreme Court, which now leans conservative due to Trump appointees, ruled last week that the administration would be allowed to enforce the policy.
