Scott Walker edges Ted Cruz and the rest of the pack for the second survey in a row, taking 31% of the vote. In fact, the ordering for 1st Choice is exactly the order from last month: Walker, Cruz, Rand Paul, Rick Perry and Ben Carson. The 2nd choice ordering is also close to the same, with Carson, Bobby Jindal and Perry closely packed.
Cruz is at second with 30%, well within the margin of error. I choose Cruz, of course, but I’d probably accept Walker. Like Gingrich, he has a record of actual victory over the left, and has managed to accomplish the one thing I want to see in a candidate: a leader who will roll back the gains of the progressive left, rather than standing pat and settling for “gridlock,” as if that does anything other than cementing leftist gains in place.
Still, though: Ted Cruz.
