Gallup Challenges Rove's Claim in Media That Hillary Has Highest 'Negatives'

NEW YORK Karl Rove, the former White House aide, made the rounds of weekend talk shows last weekend declaring, among other things, that Sen. Hillary Clinton was a “fatally flawed” candidate for president because she had (he repeated several times) the highest unfavorable ratings of any frontrunner in the history of polling going into the party primaries.

It seemed plausible, and none of the many hosts challenged him on it. There was just one problem: It wasn’t exactly true.


Gallup concluded: “A review of Gallup poll data suggests that Hillary Clinton's current high unfavorable ratings are not unprecedented. Other candidates have had similarly high unfavorable ratings at various points in presidential election campaigns in previous years.

Two of these candidates -- George W. Bush in 2004 and Bill Clinton in 1992 -- went on to win the election.

"Additionally, Rove's assumptions that Hillary Clinton's candidacy is 'fatally flawed' run counter to the historical finding that candidates' images often change, sometimes dramatically, as the campaign progresses.

Apparently where "the facts" and "the math" collide, Karl is illiterate.
