John McCormick reports on Scott Walker's free fall to the bottom in Iowa today.
Scott Walker, the one-time Republican front-runner in Iowa, has taken a precipitous fall in a new poll of those likely to vote in the first presidential nomination contest on Feb. 1.Maybe the good GOP-voting folks in Iowa didn't notice the narrow-shouldered governor riding through New Hampshire on a Harley Davidson earlier this week.
The Wisconsin governor, who is set to campaign in Iowa this weekend, was backed by just 3 percent of likely Iowa caucus participants in the latest Quinnipiac University poll. (Bloomberg Politics)
Walker's tough, unintimidated and never backs down—just like the character, Alex 'Tig' Trager, in Sons of Anarchy (TM & ©2015 FX Networks, LLC). Maybe that's who Walker wants to be when he grows up.
Hillary Clinton ridiculed the plummeting Walker in Milwaukee yesterday: "It seems to me, just observing him, that Governor Walker thinks because he busts unions, starves universities, guts public education, demeans women, scapegoats teachers, nurses and firefighters, he's some kind of tough guy on his motorcycle." (CBS News)
Hillary has Walker down, though she did omit the fact Walker is a lightweight, pathological liar and coward.
"[T]hroughout his career, Walker didn’t have to deal with a [national] media that never hesitated to declare him dumb, dull, or dead at the first whiff of a gaffe," notes Jack Craver in The Atlantic.
Scott Walker is Wisconsin's problem again. The nation took a whiff and is leaving Walker for the crows.
