1.) You can’t win a republican primary without Trump...you can’t win a general election with Trump. Trump is damaged goods. He might have a solid 30% support within the republican base (who come out and vote in primaries) but that doesn’t transfer into the general public. Even Trump ass kissing Kari Lake who was viewed as an up and coming superstar in the Republican party is behind in the Arizona Governor race. And if she comes back, she’ll win by not much.
