CNN is reporting that House Republican leadership has "launched a coordinated public relations blitz against 17 congressional Democrats that seeks to tie them to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her accusations that the CIA misled Congress about the interrogation of terror suspects."
Here is one of their ads.
Pelosi's current national approval ratings? 39%.
Newt's national approval rating when he resigned? 45%.
(to be fair, Newt was as low as 25% in March of 2007)
The unknown variable, at least to me, is how well Pelosi is known in these targeted districts. Clearly her numbers at this point show her actions encourage a negative perception. Further enhancing these negatives among those who don't know her will only help the GOP challengers.
Let's keep the heat on.
