Washington (CNN) - Most Americans don't agree with Karl Rove's questioning of Hillary Clinton's health and age, according to a new national poll.
And an ABC News/Washington Post survey released Wednesday also indicates that a majority of the public says they'd support Clinton if she makes a second bid for the White House.
Washington (CNN) – Karl Rove, the Republican strategist who just weeks ago ignited a fire about Hillary Clinton's health, now says the former secretary of state is at risk of being seen as "old and stale."
After Rove was asked about Clinton's "inevitability" as the Democratic nominee in 2016 on Fox News, the former George W. Bush aide said "people don't like people who seem to already have it made."
Hillary Clinton was the subject that consumed the political talk shows, as questions continued to be raised about Karl Rove’s comments regarding her health.
While Republicans attacked the noncandidate, Democrats defended her but also expressed concern over her strategy so far in advance of the next presidential election.

(CNN) – Republican strategist Karl Rove on Sunday once again defended his controversial comments about Hillary Clinton’s 2012 concussion, this time trying to use former President Bill Clinton’s own words to back him up.

(CNN) - Crossfire co-host Newt Gingrich took aim at Republican elites, opening Tuesday's show by criticizing Karl Rove for his recent comments questioning Hillary Clinton's health.
"I do believe that Karl Rove was totally wrong," the former speaker of the House said in response to a report that Rove, a powerful Republican strategist, suggested the former secretary of state suffers from a brain injury stemming from a 2012 health scare.
"I think he represented the worst instincts of the consulting class in the Republican Party," Gingrich said.
(CNN) - Karl Rove's suggestion that Hillary Clinton suffers from a brain injury is coming under attack.
Rove, the mastermind behind George W. Bush's two presidential election victories, appeared at a conference last Thursday, where he discussed a 2012 incident that sent the then-secretary of state to the hospital, according to the New York Post's Page Six, the newspaper's well-known gossip column.
(CNN) – Nearly six months after losing a Senate race and becoming a political punch line, former Rep. Todd Akin weighed in again on his controversial remarks about rape and pregnancy, saying in a recent interview he has "relived" the episode "too many times."
In an interview with CNN affiliate KSDK in St. Louis, the former Missouri congressman also hit back at Karl Rove, founder of the independent group American Crossroads, for his new group designed to recruit GOP candidates that won't make the same mistake as Akin.
