Presidential candidate Scott Walker was at one point considered a favorite for the GOP nomination. Earlier this year, he was polling first in the race, even outperforming Jeb Bush for a brief period of time. However, in two new polls, one from ABC News/Washington Post and the other from CBS News/NYT, Governor Walker was only able to receive 2% support nationally.

Governor Walker’s orange line has been consistently on the decline for months now, but this 2% support is a new low for the candidate. Experts blame his poor debate performance and bland persona in a field of giants, but regardless of the reason for the falloff, we may be seeing a Scott Walker exit in the coming months.
