Some House Democrats mull over how to oust Pelosi as leader

For his part, Ryan hasn't said that Pelosi should step down, but he does say he is very concerned about the obvious decline of the Democratic brand.
"Senator Reid was a target, Senator Daschle was a target, Tip O'Neill was a target", Pelosi said.
"I think you'd have to be an idiot to think we could win the House with Pelosi at the top", said Filemon Vela, a Texas Democrat who supported Pelosi when she ran for the leadership past year. "But I can tell you that I've been speaking to a lot of members of the caucus who have supported her in the past - as have I - but the time has come", Rice said. On one hand, Democrats are now 0-for-four in their attempts to turn a Republican seat in this year's special elections.
At a news conference Thursday afternoon, Pelosi defended her leadership against mounting criticism from her own party and attacks from Republicans.
"The Republican playbook for the past four election cycles has been very focused, very clear: It's been an attack on our leader", Ms. Rice said.
In May, Alexis Frank, a 26-year-old Democrat, lost a primary race for South Carolina's 5Congressional District.
Nevertheless, comprehensive national polls continue to show the same underlying dynamic that has caused Democrats to hemorrhage seats at the local, state and federal level since 2010: Millions of Americans see the party as uninterested in their well-being - in Ryan's words, "not being able to connect with the issues they care about".
Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass., who also attended the meeting, said, "in every corner of our caucus, we're concerned". So they vote in more of the same corrupt politicians of both parties.
She benefits from a dearth of younger colleagues tagged as heirs to her leadership, and no up-and-coming Democrat can match her fundraising skills, no matter which figures are used. "If we don't, then I think it's incumbent upon her and all of us to reassess who our leadership should be".
In the final fortnight of the campaign, the CLF and NRCC ran ads featuring comic Kathy Griffin's "severed head" photo of Trump, and an obscure PAC produced an ad linking Ossoff to the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., during a baseball practice outside Washington. Their strategy contrasts with the failed strategy of the Democratic Party establishment, which is to simply appeal to red state voters to support them as smarter, better, and leaner Republicans. It needs a party that admits the Affordable Care Act is deeply flawed and that works to improve health care instead of just jeering the deeply flawed Republican replacement measure.
A little less than half said Trump was not a factor in their decision, while 14 percent said their vote, in part, was meant to show their support for the president. Though Handel had barely made it to the runoff by winning just 20 percent of the vote in the first round, she easily consolidated her base when the choice came down to "R" or "D". Whatever Democratic activists think, a majority of Americans do not want what they are selling. Of the 7,218 Californians who gave money to influence this Georgia race, 3,063 were people from the San Francisco Bay area - otherwise known as Pelosi-land. Georgia's sixth congressional district is a Republican district so that is why Ossoff lost. Hillary Clinton would probably be another lightning rod.
Representative Tim Ryan of OH said she remained a political millstone for Democrats.
That would seem to be obvious, as the 5-0 special election sweep for the GOP and Mr. Trump strongly suggest.
Inquire about a Democrat's political philosophy - and you will get anything from a speech about "progressive values" to a discourse on how "labels really don't really describe who I am".
