Chairman of the Republican Study Committee (RSC) Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) said at CPAC on Saturday that the Republican party will lose future elections if they cut ties with former President Donald Trump and his connection with working class voters.
“There are very few Republicans; the least popular are those that want to erase Donald Trump and Donald Trump supporters from our party. Let me tell you, if that happens, we will not win back the majority in 2022; we definitely won’t win back the White House in 2024 if you erase Donald Trump,” Banks told the CPAC crowd.
Banks also noted that the Republicans who supported Trump were the most popular with voters and those that were least popular were those that didn’t support Trump.
Banks looked forward to House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (D-CA) being speaker after the 2022 election. McCarthy was the most popular Republican with voters.
Banks said the GOP has become the party of the working class, while the Democrat party has become the party of the elite.
