Scott Walker is adored by many on the right. His ability to take on Wisconsin’s unions and win has endeared him to many conservatives and his mid-western roots make him appealing as a GOP nominee. There is one hurdle for him to clear before the governor can do anything regarding 2016. He has to get reelected.
That is looking like it will be tougher than people originally thought. According to one poll, Walker trails Democrat Mary Burke 48-44.
There is still 2 months of campaigning to go, so things are far from over. However, for Walker to be under 50% and trailing in any poll is not a good sign.
Looking ahead any upcoming debates will be critical for Walker. A win in one of them could put this challenger a way. You can also beat that the Koch brothers and the unions will both be spending big to win this one.
