Walker after leading the pack for much of the spring, especially in Iowa Walker is now near the bottom of the pack with backing of just 3% of party members nationally. Why did this happen, was it his flip flops on immigration, his statements about evolution, or perhaps it was his stated qualifications to fight ISIS, “If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the globe.” Nope none of that.
Walker told Glenn Beck his problem is that he really won Wednesday’s CNN debate but the media was in the tank for Carly Fiorina:
