Q&A with Benjamin Rasmussen ’18, co-chairman of the Yale New Republicans

"We want a Republican Party that can draw more votes from every demographic group. We don’t want a Republican Party dominated by middle-aged white men. However, this election has shaken some of the assumptions that we made in calling for that type of Republican Party, because Trump was gaining record numbers among some types of groups that more moderate Republicans had not done nearly as well with. So now we’re confused on where to go going forward."
