Karl Rove: Convention Should Bring 'Net Plus' for Trump

Fox News' "America's Newsroom"

Political strategist Karl Rove said Friday that the Republican National Convention wasn't the best he's ever seen, but it should still end with a "net plus" for GOP nominee Donald Trump.

However, it's still far too soon to tell who will win the race for the White House, Rove said.

"We are in a fast-moving picture," Rove told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" program. "We don't have a lot of data in the battleground states."

Trump is looking good in Iowa, Ohio, and Florida, said Rove, and "if he starts with the 206 Electoral College votes Mitt Romney got, those states would be states he could take.

However, candidates don't always get a bump coming out of the convention, said Rove, and both Trump and presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton have "such high unfavorables and such low favorables."

"Since 1964 the Democratic Party has gotten less than 6 points out of a convention, and the Republicans less than 10 points," said Rove. "Obama got a three-point bump, and Romney got nothing."

And where Trump and Clinton are concerned, said Rove, "We haven't seen this high a percentage of unfavorables since the 1992-1993 race."

In addition, the Democratic convention is coming on the heels of the Republican one, Hillary Clinton will "step on his nomination with the nomination of her vice president."
