Pretty strong rating for a "mediocre" Walker from "The Fix" - - ahead of several other Republicans in a top ten list, including #5 Kasich (the favorite Midwestern governor among many national media for his occasional humanity) and #4 Trump - - but behind the two Floridians, #2 Rubio and his purported mentor, #1 Bush:
3. Walker: The Wisconsin governor has withstood the Trump Bump in Iowa and still looks like a favorite to win the first-in-the-nation caucuses there in February. Among the Republicans I spoke with, real doubts remain about how ready Walker is for the big stage and how talented he is as a candidate. I think his performance thus far has been mediocre, with occasional moments of good to very good. Is that enough?
