Cuckservative is a neologistic epithet.[1] It is a portmanteau of the word cuckold and the political designation conservative, and has become an increasingly popular pejorative label used within the conservative movement.

The word cuckservative reached the cusp of mainstream political conversation around mid-July 2015, where it gained media attention just a few weeks before the start of the first Republican primary debate for the 2016 United States Presidential election.[2][3] The term was further popularized when Vox Day and John Red Eagle published Cuckservative: How "Conservatives" Betrayed America in December 2015. The book became a #1 bestseller on Amazon in the Politics category. The term cuckservative has maintained its popularity since then, especially with the rise of Donald Trump and his presidential run.
