John Kasich's former chief campaign strategist Wednesday cited Donald Trump's plummeting poll numbers to tout that the Ohio governor is best qualified to take on Democrat Hillary Clinton in November.

"Under a modeled electorate, Trump loses every swing state by 6-12 points," John Weaver told supporters in an email that was disclosed by Politico. "Governor Kasich wins 6 out of 7 swing states. Speaker Ryan wins 2 out of 7 swing states.

"This data is just further proof that Governor Kasich is the most popular Republican politician in the nation today — and it underlines why his efforts to help our U.S. Senate and House candidates are so very important."

Kasich, who quit the nomination sweepstakes in May, has not endorsed Trump.

He has also insisted that he does not want to speak at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland next month — and Trump said Sunday that neither Kasich nor Texas Sen. Ted Cruz should be allowed to address delegates unless they endorsed him.

When asked why the email was sent, Weaver told Politico that its goal was to "show how tremendously helpful he will be as we fight in a very difficult environment to keep control of the House and Senate, and other down-ballot races.

"Also shows that a positive, conservative reform message which includes everyone is the right message for Republicans," he said.

Kasich and Trump have not spoken since last month, Weaver told Politico.
