One of the most influential social conservative groups in the country, the Susan B. Anthony List, has issued a glowing appraisal of President Trump's first 100 days. The group's leader, Marjorie Dannenfelser, will release a report today saying Trump has "has governed as a pro-life president."

Why this matters: social conservatives and evangelical voters comprise a substantial portion of Trump's base and they turned out in record numbers to elect him. He needs their continued support and can't afford for them to become disillusioned by his presidency.
