“My approval rating is higher than Clinton or Trump’s and one of them is going to win the state of Wisconsin”, said Walker during an impromptu gathering with members of the media in Cleveland. He added, “I think it is pretty clear between now and November 2018 my approval rating was pretty low and I got it back up again.”
Walker was one of the 17 Republican candidates that ran for the White House this time around and according to recent reports, including The National Review, he is pondering another run depending on his future as the Governor. “If I choose to run I think part of it is making it clear to voters, I think I have to be clear my intentions are to run full term.”
While campaigning last year Walker told voters he was the right candidate to jump-start the U.S. economy which he described as “stagnant”. Last June, during an interview on FOX Business Network’s Cavuto: Coast to Coast, Walker said the economy can experience “anywhere upwards to 4.5% growth if we did dramatic pro-growth policies.”
Walker’s ideas at the time included “pulling back on regulations, unleash innovation and technology in this country, repeal Obamacare, use all the abundance of the energy policies we have and have fair and open trade.”
One year later, the U.S. economy continues to limp along with 1Q GDP rising a puny 1.1%.
Walker ended his presidential run last September.
