Roger Ailes, Founder of Murdoch’s Fox News, Dies at 77

Roger Ailes, a former U.S. presidential adviser who started the Fox News Channel to promote a Republican agenda and built it into the most-watched U.S. cable news network before resigning amid sexual harassment allegations, has died. He was 77.

He died Thursday, the network said, citing a statement from his wife, Elizabeth Ailes. No cause was given.

“Roger was a loving husband to me, to his son Zachary, and a loyal friend to many,” his wife said in the statement, according to Fox News. “He was also a patriot, profoundly grateful to live in a country that gave him so much opportunity to work hard, to rise—and to give back.”

A New Poll Has Bad News For Mitt Romney And Jeb Bush

AP455474805870

A new poll indicates two leading contenders have actually lost ground since announcing their interest in the 2016 race for the White House.

According to a NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey released Monday, both 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) are less popular than they were last year.

Last September, when Romney was repeatedly insisting he would not run for president again, 32% of Americans and 60% of Republicans viewed him favorably.

Romney’s popularity has since dipped. According to the NBC poll, just 27% of Americans and 52% of Republicans have a positive rating for him. The drop comes after Romney revealed his interest in a potential 2016 run in January.

Bush’s ratings have also taken a small tumble since December, when he announced he was taking a major step toward running for president and forming a leadership PAC. In November, 26% of Americans and 44% of Republicans viewed Bush positively. Now 19% of Americans and 37% of Republicans say the same.

Bush, who has not run for office in over a decade, is lesser known than Romney. He nevertheless has national stature at least partially thanks to the prominence of his family. Both his father, former President George H.W. Bush, and his brother former President George W. Bush have recently served in the Oval Office.
