Governor Scott Walker avoids answering evolution question

Wisconsin Governor and potential 2016 Republican challenger Scott Walker arrived in London, Wednesday to discuss trade issues but avoided questions on ISIS, his 2016 aspirations and even evolution. Walker appeared before the Chatham House think-tank, speaking about Wisconsin’s innovative industries like health care and water technology during his “trade mission” to the United Kingdom. BBC radio host Justin Webb asked Walker whether Britain should be doing more in the fight against ISIS, Walker refused to answer saying he would follow political tradition of declining to comment on policy while traveling outside the United States.

Walker also declined to answer several questions on foreign policy, including those on the U.S. strategy with regards to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and whether to arm Ukrainian rebels, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. His trip to London was an attempt to bolster his foreign policy credentials by saying nothing at all, which turned out to be a disaster. Walker dodged the evolution question turning it into a evolution on trade in Wisconsin discussion.  A Pew Research Center poll last year found that 43 percent of Republicans believe humans have evolved over time, while 48 percent do not. The percentage of Republican voters who believe in evolution has dropped 11 points in four years.
