In the Comfort of his Chevy Chase Den, Charlie Cook Predicts the Possibility of Big Things for Scott Walker in Iowa

Who, in the Iowa Caucus polling average, is leading the hapless Bobby Jindal and no one else.  Kasich and Pence have yet to register.

Charlie Cook: Watch Midwest governors in 2016 caucuses.  (Des Moines Register, 12/13/2014)

Still plenty of race to go, but......
"Kasich, Pence Walker: One of those three is going to break through," Cook told a group of Des Moines Register reporters and editors following a Harkin Institute-sponsored lecture on the Drake campus last Wednesday. 

That's a strong opinion, and one not widely shared at this point in the presidential horse race.

A steadily growing list of 2016 Republican primary posts:
Scott Walker tied with "someone else", "no opinion" in latest CNN/ORC poll.  (12/3/2014)
Evidence to the contrary, it is NOT December 2006 -- or October 1974.  (12/3/2014) 
What GOP Presidential hopefuls are visiting Iowa and how often? (11/30/2014)
Speaking of checking off the boxes, I don't think Scott Walker fares too well here.  (11/24/2014)
In Wisconsin, Scott Walker is just not that into us, but in neighboring Iowa, Republican caucus voters are just not that into Scott Walker.  (11/24/2014)
Like everyone else running for the 2016 Republican Presidential nomination, Scott Walker will be pandering to the base.  (11/20/2014)
