Karl Rove: Obama Should Stop Polling and Lead

By    |   Thursday, 25 Sep 2014 11:17 PM

With the Gallup Daily Tracking Poll showing President Barack Obama dropping two percentage points in one day, one of his sharpest critics says it's time for him to stop paying attention to polls.

"This president polls too much, pays too much attention to the polls," Republican operative Karl Rove said Thursday on Fox News Channel's "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren." "Stop looking. He is a wartime leader, whether he likes it or not."

Gallup showed Obama's approval rating at 42 percent on September 22-24, down from 44 percent on September 21-23.

"His numbers are bad, and they are not recently bad," Rove said, noting that Obama was last on top in the favorability polls 53 weeks ago.

Russia moving into Ukraine and the Islamic State (ISIS) moving across northern Iraq earlier this year both were hits to the president's numbers, he said.

"His problem is people are looking at his policies and say they don’t work and he's not a strong leader," Rove said.

He said that if Obama works on getting the right policies and being a strong, effective leader and the polls will take care of themselves.

"It's been a long time coming," he said. "It will be a long time getting out."
