Wisconsin governor Scott Walker is nothing if not a campaign veteran. He’s run and won three statewide races since 2010, including the highly contentious recall election in 2012. In fact, since an unsuccessful bid for the state assembly in 1990 when he was just 22, Walker hasn’t lost an election. That’s a great record to have going into a campaign for president, but just a month into his official candidacy, Walker is suffering from a perception that he’s already losing.

Hillary Clinton was asked about new poll numbers that show the American people don't trust her. "Well, I don't like to read that, it won't surprise you to hear me say it," Clinton said with a big grin on her face.
