A Democrat organization admitted in a recent memo Hillary Clinton is losing the support of blue-collar workers, and offered some suggestions to change her campaign strategy as the Republican Party remains divided over the rise of Donald Trump.

The Democracy Corps memo, obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, calls attention to how Clinton can improve her messaging for the general election.

"We are witnessing the crash of the Republican Party as we know it, and progressives should dramatically change their strategy to maximize conservative losses and move the stalled progressive reform agenda in the election's aftermath," reads the memo, which was dated April 11, 2016.

"The Republican Party is being shattered by a three-front civil war against the GOP establishment and that in-fighting will profoundly impact how people vote for president and all the way down the ballot."

The memo then refers to Trump as "the skunk at the garden party with his overt racism and hostility to immigrants and Muslims. But GOP base voters are race-conscious and anti-immigrant, as they have made clear at the state level since Pete Wilson in 1994."

The memo goes on to describe three ways Democrats can seize on what it calls "the fracturing of the Republican Party," including a bit about Clinton and working-class voters.

"It is urgent to join the battle for the working class because Hillary Clinton has only reluctantly engaged on economic issues, political reform, and bad trade agreements, and she is losing working class voters in the primary and general, according to our polls," the memo reads.

The memo also talks about Clinton needing to capture the vote of moderate Republicans, an issue Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly brought up Wednesday.
