Rove who?

Another humbling reminder from Polling Report of the very tiny pond that is the blogosphere. According to a CNN/USA TODAY poll, a full 25 percent of respondents have never heard of Karl Rove -- and that's about the same percent that have a favorable impression of him. Thirty four percent have an unfavorable impression.

The good news is right below in the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll that shows Donald Rumsfeld's negative rating soaring ever upward over the past four years. [LINK via The Blue State]
