Karl Rove is on the ropes.
The man who spent years on top of the conservative political world has fallen somewhat from grace after his Super PAC this year spent a colossal amount of money with limited results.
In fact, American Crossroads was the biggest loser among outside spending groups this year, shelling out more than $170 million dollars in races across the country, only 1.29% of which results in winning elections according to the Sunlight Foundation.Â
The second-biggest spender was the Super PAC dedicated to supporting Mitt Romney, which obviously had a 0% return on its money. It's worth noting that another branch of Rove's Crossroads organization called Crossroads GPS did a little bit better than American Crossroads, with a return of about 13%.
