We’re not saying Rove is unpopular, but his mean favorability rating in the new Democracy Corps poll is slightly better than “gay marriage” and worse than “the Iraq war.” Ouch.
Q.9 Now, I’d like to rate your feelings toward some people and organizations, with one hundred meaning a VERY WARM, FAVORABLE feeling; zero meaning a VERY COLD, UNFAVORABLE feeling; and fifty meaning not particularly warm or cold. You can use any number from zero to one hundred, the higher the number the more favorable your feelings are toward that person or organization. If you have no opinion or never heard of that person or organization, please say so.
NAFTA and international trade agreements: 44.3
The Iraq war: 39.5
Gay marriage: 33.9
The United Nations: 47.3
Federal judges and the federal courts: 54.3
Karl Rove: 38.1
Tony Blair: 65.0
