The Congressional Leadership Fund (CLF) issued a memo exhorting Republicans on a strategic approach to November's midterms, including hammering away at Nancy Pelosi, "the most unpopular politician in the country."
The CLF, the super PAC closely aligned with House Speaker Paul Ryan, also warned Republicans that "history suggests we should lose the House."
CLF executive director Corry Bliss highlighted a three-pronged strategy for Republicans to mount in the wake of the group's extensive survey of 69 congressional districts.
One of those initiatives: Pound House Minority Leader Pelosi — she is universally reviled.
"Pelosi is far and away the most unpopular politician in the country," Bliss wrote. "She is underwater in all 69 individual congressional districts polled. … Pelosi remains toxic to Independents.
"Republicans must continue to use the Pelosi vs. Ryan contrast. Nancy Pelosi has been a gift to Republicans in election after election, and that will be no different this year," Bliss wrote. "Americans do not want her as their Speaker – and that must be the choice of this election."
Another top priority for Republicans, according to Bliss: sell the tax cuts legislation; the "Tax Cuts and Jobs Act" is "underwater" in 52 of the 69 districts surveyed, Bliss wrote.
In 50 districts, a plurality of voters believe the tax bill will increase their taxes," Bliss wrote. "Republican incumbents have hard data on their side with this issue, and there is already evidence of improvement.
"Incumbents must begin to educate their constituents on this specific legislation and how it cuts taxes for the middle class. There is no positive outcome in November if we do not show that we cut taxes for the middle class and are working to make their lives better. Period," Bliss wrote.
