Main Street Republicans is a philosophy in the Republican Party of the United States.

There are three meanings for this term.

  • Generally, Main Street Republicans are the party's small-town, rural, and small-business supporters, generally perceived as being more socially conservative than the big-business "Wall Street" faction, which is largely perceived as being predominantly in favor of reduced taxation and business regulation and as either unconcerned or openly hostile to frequently held "Main Street" positions in opposition to abortion, gay rights, and similar issues of major concern.
