House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has revealed how she plans to ensure sweeping Democratic wins in 2020 — and her simple metric for predicting their chances a year ahead of time.

Roll Call reported that during an annual retreat, Pelosi told fellow Democrats that she can “predict how well we will do in an election one year in advance because one year in advance is where you see where the president of the party is,”

“If he’s still in the 40’s,” the House Speaker told her caucus, “they have a big problem.”

During the meeting, Pelosi also touted the importance of incumbent Democrats holding multiple town halls to hear from and get in front of constituents — a move later used by Rep. Antonio Delgado (D-NY) in an ad released Thursday.

“We won in November [2018] because we owned the ground. We didn’t give one grain of sand in terms of getting out the vote,” the House Speaker said. “We disciplined our message like a jackhammer: for the people, lower health care, bigger paychecks, cleaner government. That was our message. And we had the resources necessary.”
