scott-walkerGovernor Scott Walker of Wisconsin and Republican Presidential candidate dropped out of the 2016 Elections race on Monday due to funding problems and low poll ratings.

Once in the top three candidates for the Republican nomination for the November elections, Walker has fallen down in the polls because of his poor campaign run and a bad performance at the two Republican debates.

Hi disagreement with his staff on how to make a comeback at the national polls and the donors pulling out of his campaign was the crucial point of him making the decision to drop out of the nomination race.

According to Reuters, Walker announced he is dropping out of the White House race much to the surprise of voters. He stated “Today, I believe I am being called to lead by helping to clear the race so that a positive conservative message can rise to the top of the field. With that in mind, I will suspend my campaign immediately.” He also added that the GOP campaigns should not focus on personal attacks with the example of Donald Trump. Walker said “In the end I believe that the voters want to be for something and not against something. Instead of talking how bad things are, we want to hear how they can make them better for everyone. We need to get back to the basics of our party.”

Walker has been making a very poor campaign rallies where he changed his views constantly and in an effort to keep up with the Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, addressing illegal immigration he stated that he would build a wall on the border between the United States and Canada, just to stay in line with Trump urging for a wall on the border between Mexico and the United States.

According to Reuters, John Catsimatidis, a donor from New York said that Walker made that mistake of suggesting a wall on the northern border when the country has trouble at its southern border. He stated “I think the priority is watching out for our southern border and he brought up the Canadian border, and that’s not a priority.”

Walker’s voter field will spread to other center-right candidates Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush and John Kasich, as well as conservatives like Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz. Republicans argue that the donors of the Walker campaign will most probably finance Carly Fiorina or Marco Rubio.

The Wisconsin Governor is the second Republican to drop out of the race for the Republican nomination, after Rick Perry, and called on other GOP Presidential candidates to drop out and give support to one person that actually has a chance to win the presidency.
