Poll: Large majority disapproves of Karl Rove asking questions about Hillary’s age and health

posted at 6:41 pm on May 28, 2014 by Allahpundit

I don’t get it. Why would the public side with Hillary Clinton over a guy who’s been infamous for years as a notoriously Machiavellian political operator, whom half of his own party now despises, and whose claim to fame from the last presidential race 2012 was spending gigantic sums on a losing strategy and then wrongly questioning the results in Ohio on election night?

Just think, if we’re very lucky, he’ll be back in the White House soon under President Jeb.

party

Even a plurality of Republicans disapproves of him questioning Hillary’s age and health. The numbers by gender are what you’d expect they are, too:

gen

Hillary will, of course, cry sexism when questions about her health are asked during the campaign, notwithstanding the fact that those questions are always asked of older male candidates. Looks from these numbers like she might find a receptive audience, which will only make it harder for the GOP to close the gender gap.

Two obvious questions from all this. One: Is the public disapproval here chiefly a reaction to the subject matter or a reaction to Rove? It’s important to figure that out, obviously, if the GOP intends to press ahead with this line attack. We can replace the messenger while keeping the message — or can we? With Rove having assumed such a prominent role in pushing this argument so early in the election cycle, every subsequent iteration of it is going to be framed by lefties as being part of “the Rove strategy.” He’s put his brand on the age/health debate. Two: Does any of what I just said really matter to whether the age/health questions will help or hurt Hillary? The fact that people “disapprove” of Rove attacking her this way doesn’t mean they won’t still think about it when they go to vote. On the contrary, voters in past elections have freely admitted to pollsters that an older candidate’s age is a liability. Rove couldn’t care less, I suspect, whether Americans are annoyed at him for taking the lead on this; his goal was to raise public awareness about Hillary’s age and health and he’s achieved that. Voters’ natural inclinations to view older candidates more dimly through that lens will do the rest.

“Hillary will, of course, cry sexism when questions about her health are asked during the campaign, notwithstanding the fact that those questions are always asked of older male candidates”.

If she does screech sexism she should be asked whether she wants to be treated as a female or a political equal.

Do you approve or disapprove of political strategist Karl Rove raising questions about Hillary Clinton’s age and health?

Would like to see a poll on approval, disapproval of Karl Rove.

Well, that just might cost him his election.

Oh wait.

I think we have to ask a smart question here. I know it’s smart, because it was first posed by the smartest woman in the world.

Cha-ching.

Funny if they were about anything but supporting Hillary they would have presented a history of Hillary’s health (and noted her age) and then asked a similar question without Rove’s name being included…but we know what they are up to.

CW on May 28, 2014 at 6:47 PM

Yup. Rove appears desperate with his ‘Am I still relevant?’ tactics.

But it still doesn’t change the fact that Hillary has accomplished nothing (read: NOTHING) during the previous 5 years.

locomotivebreath1901 on May 28, 2014 at 6:47 PM

Rove is such an asshat. Instead of going down the road of age & health, he simply could’ve chosen to highlight the fact that Hillary lacks charisma and has no positive record to run on, either as a Senator or as SOS.

Both. One, he’s a bit crass and the level of tolerance of him is pretty low. Two, his credibility is in tatters so its easy to laugh at him and dismiss him, particularly when he’s being crass.

ted c on May 28, 2014 at 6:50 PM

Regardless of this poll – if the GOP doesn’t raise the issue of her health appropriately they are wimps.

Age is a touchier issue – depends on the age of the GOP candidate. But reminding the Dems of what they said regarding McCain’s age & health might be useful.

Yeah talking about Palin and McCain.

On top of that, YES it is important. Being pRedident is a stressful job. Hard on the body. The older you are the more likely your going to have health issues. We also know if your healthy to begin with. We dont need another 3 o’clock call to go unanswered.

watertown on May 28, 2014 at 6:59 PM

No doubt these same people are just fine with criticizing republicans for being old though. In fact, if I remember correctly, age and health was very important with it came to the republican candidate in 2008.

Rove is a douche but Shrillary’s brain damage is a serious issue. She only had a handful of working neurons, to begin with, so when four of them fell down and hit the ground it was a big deal.

OTOH, was anyone talking about Hillary’s age and health before Rove mentioned them?

So evidently it’s okay to gush all over her as the presumptive nominee, but as soon as someone starts asking the necessary questions about her fitness to serve, people are offended?

Are her “accomplishments” and “qualifications” also off-limits?

The problem here is who raised the subject matter, not the subject matter itself.

Well, spending money on Reagan (aka. “gigantic sums on a losing strategy”) seems a lot smarter in hindsight now doesn’t it?

You don’t quit fighting for principles because of some losses or because CNN has had some success lying about the Tea Party and falsely branding them radical.

Fact is, Hillary is a biatch no matter how much Don Quixote-like attacks on the Koch Brothers or Karl Rove are foisted.

Bitter Clinger on May 28, 2014 at 7:04 PM

I personally think, whoever decides to go after Hillary should she run, should go after the issue of whether she is competent for the job, based on her past performance. Unlike Obama, who could exude an aura of coooolness and thereby skirt the issue, Hillary is long past her cool date. Her previous time in elected office and the positions she’s held can be parsed quite effectively, rather than to go after her age and health, which the Dems are setting up as obvious traps for anyone to fall into (“sexism!! Ageism!!!”). Yes, she’ll be past her pull date as far as her age goes, and yes, she’s had some health issues that should be questioned, but they pulled age with Reagan and health and age with McCain, so it would sound trite and tired to go after her that way. Better to concentrate on her obvious lack of competency for the Oval Office. And boy, based on that, is she incompetent.

theotherone on May 28, 2014 at 7:04 PM

This is assuming Hillary will be the Democratic presidential nominee in 2016.

I wouldn’t make that assumption.

Lolo on May 28, 2014 at 7:05 PM

The true Machiavellian political operator would say something about Hillary’s health now just to make sure it’s in the public conversation and then shut up, knowing that people aren’t going to carry the anger for 29 months, with everything else that’s going to happen between now and Election Day.

But they will take that into account if, instead of remembering her age situation on their own (especially if she does have a medical issue between now and 11/8/16), you keep nudging them about it on Fox News and elsewhere for the next 29 months. We’ll see if Rove did this just to know the issue’s in play, or if he plans to harp on about it and make sure the media has a way to drum up sympathy votes for Mrs. Clinton.

Did they ever poll how Americans felt about Dems mocking McCain’s war wounds, questioning his age/health, etc? Or poll on those questioning whether Palin had her kid? The purpose of a dumb poll like this is to produce a headline sympathetic to Hillary. That’s all. For all the piling on of Rove here, it seems lost on many that her husband just admitted it took her six months to recover…from a concussion. There are legitimate questions about that, and this is simply an attempt to kneecap those in order to insulate her from them (just as they did for BO).

The problem is that the GOP didn’t jump all over this when SHrillary first threw herself down the steps just in time to avoid the Benghazi hearings. Of course, this is the same Vichy GOP that let Barky and his junta get away with that kabuki theater with Petraeus and his girlfriend, firing him right before he was supposed to testify about the same thing.

Johnnyreb on May 28, 2014 at 7:14 PM

The second concern is the right one.

Someone must be the bad guy here, to expand the Overton Window. Rove’s diminished influence makes him the perfect proponent of Hillary “old, stale, ugly, fat, ill.”

This message will get under people’s skin, especially older, independent voters. Pry them away from Bill and her, and Republicans succeed (by the narrowest margins).

True that older people take longer to redover from concussions, but longer as in 1,2 months…but 6??? According to my sister who’s a doc, blood clot on the brain are most commonly associated with elder patients who experienced concussions. All I am saying is that the question is/was legit, I am not saying that she didn’t fully recover. At this point people either take her word for it, or request that she publish her medical records surrounding this particular health prob.

Senior Democrats are starting to slowly back away from Clinton due to this very issue. If she does get the nomination and she has one of her “fainting spells” on the campaign trail the whole thing comes crumbling down and there is no Mulligan in a Presidential Campaign. If she falls out of the publics perception more than a day at the most it is all over no matter what spin they try.

They are terrified of what might happen if she decides to run. That is why people are throwing Warrens name out there so early.

Johnnyreb on May 28, 2014 at 7:34 PM

Rove couldn’t care less, I suspect, whether Americans are annoyed at him for taking the lead on this;

But will Republicans take note of his toxic status and begin to distance themselves from him?

Will they encourage him to STFU, stay in the background, and let others be the face of the party?

Even if they do, can his gargantuan ego be contained?

And a little premature, Clinton isn’t running.

The fact that people “disapprove” of Rove attacking her this way doesn’t mean they won’t still think about it when they go to vote. On the contrary, voters in past elections have freely admitted to pollsters that an older candidate’s age is a liability. Rove couldn’t care less, I suspect, whether Americans are annoyed at him for taking the lead on this; his goal was to raise public awareness about Hillary’s age and health and he’s achieved that.

We’ve got to admit–Hillary has more hair than Rove.

When Democrat nominee Walter Mondale played the “age card” against Ronald Reagan in 1984, Reagan adroitly replied at a debate that he wouldn’t hold Mondale’s inexperience against him.

But if Hillary says something like that in 2016, the Republican nominee can point to Hillary’s experience as Secretary of State, and wonder aloud whether Hillary has gained any wisdom from her disastrous experience…

We need a complete re-hash of all the hillary / bill scandals since they first held an office in Arkansas, as well as a list of all the “Clintoncides” that happened from Arkansas to
Washington and beyond.

I hope someone has that at the ready, with links and goodies, starting with Benghazi, the russkie reset, shrillarycare, etc.

Be sure to include the perfect .45cal hole in the top of Ron Brown’s head and the “mysterious” suicide of the guy responsible for “accidentally” turning off the runway lights at night in the arctic where his plane was supposed to be landing.

And of course, Vince Foster and his sudden office clean out by shrillary’s people.

I’m sure there’s even better stuff too, so we don’t want to miss a drop.

THAT is what we need to be talking about in regard to that commie binch shrillary.

Just publicizing Hillary’s bar tab while at State ought to give most folks a clue as to her health and state of mind…

Large majority disapproves of Karl Rove asking questions about Hillary’s age and health

Translation: the MSM disapproves and has repeatedly said that a majority does, and now the Honey Boo Boo voters believe them.

So what? What’s right isn’t always popular and what’s popular isn’t always right. Play it again Rove, and keep playing it. Rove is about as likeable as a toothache, so what’s he got to lose?

Keep prodding her and wait for the shrieks of displeasure. Let her own natural unpleasantness do her in.

Karl Rove is not in a popularity contest here. He’s executing a strategy to get Hillary’s age and health issues out to the voters. you can be sure the LSM will never give a hint of any problems Hill might have in that area.

Of course people will say that they don’t like this. So what? Rove isn’t running for anything.

attacking a woman with such venom is not a good idea.

Sarah Palin says, “Hi.”

307wolverine on May 28, 2014 at 8:09 PM

The medical records she will have to release will be so whitewashed they will be blinding.

MaxBC on May 28, 2014 at 7:59 PM

They’ll never be released. Obama has set the new standard by never releasing his education records.

Face facts. Hillary will be the next POTUS.

Assuming, of course, that there IS a next POTUS…

Perhaps. All my leftist progressive acquaintances seem to think so. She still has to become the nom. Noms have to campaign and debate. Should be grand to behold.

Facing facts, I call BS.

pambi on May 28, 2014 at 8:20 PM

This is good news….Rove goes down in flames yet he plants the seeds into peoples mind about Hillary even if they say they disapprove it actually works in a subconscious way. Progs have been doing it for years and it has worked for them.

I don’t like Rove, but if he wants to go Kamikaze on the S.S. Clinton be my guest…
