Scott Walker is like Tim Pawlenty light.
Madison (WKOW) -- A new national poll shows Governor Scott Walker polling at 0 percent in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.
The CNN/ORC poll released Sunday shows there were five candidates who received less than one percent of support from likely Republican voters. Walker was among them, joined by former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, and former New York Governor George Pataki. Less than one percent equates to zero percent, statistically.
The results show Donald Trump is still the front-runner with 24 percent, but has lost ground from earlier in the month. However Carly Fiorina jumped to second place with 15 percent.
Another category Walker falters in is recognition. Walker has the second-worst polling numbers in name recognition. The poll shows 25 percent of likely Republican voters say they've never heard of him. All other candidates except for Ohio governor John Kasich were more recognizable to likely Republicans.
The poll began the day after the most recent Republican debate on CNN
Walker has had lower negatives than many of his rivals — lower than Republicans such as Trump, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. In theory, that gives him a higher ceiling.
The bad news is that he seems to have a lower floor, too, hitting rock bottom at 1% or 2% in some recent state and national polls. That suggests not only that his support last spring was something of a mirage — soft and unsustainable — but that he lacks a bedrock base of firm support going forward.
“It's not like (GOP voters) suddenly don't like Scott Walker any more. They're just more excited about other people,” said Tom Jensen of Public Policy Polling, a Democratic firm that has polled frequently on the GOP race.
“Walker still has relatively low (negatives),” says Gallup’s Newport. “He doesn’t have to beat back a bad image, but he has to create an image.”
Today, I believe that I am being called to lead by helping to clear the field in this race so that a positive, conservative message can rise to the top of the field. With this in mind, I will suspend my campaign immediately," Walker said at a news conference in Madison, Wisconsin.
He encouraged other trailing Republican candidates to follow his path.
"I encourage other Republican presidential candidates to consider doing the same so that the voters can focus on a limited number of candidates who can offer a positive, conservative alternative to the current front-runner," said Walker, referencing businessman Donald Trump. "This is fundamentally important to the future of our party, and, more important, the future of the country."
