    talk about shallow.
    I certainly wouldn't, but his academic performance certainly doesn't indicate that he was a top notch student. He spent a full four years in college, I can't imagine why he would quit when he had to be very close to completing his degree.

    Scott Walker (politician) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In 1986, Walker worked as a volunteer for Tommy Thompson's gubernatorial campaign,[8] and in the fall of that year, enrolled at Marquette University.[9] In 1988, he ran for student government president, losing 1,245 to 927,[8] following an alleged infringement of campaign guidelines.[3] Walker discontinued his studies at Marquette in the spring of 1990, leaving in good standing with a 2.59/4.0 grade point average, but without obtaining a degree.[8

    So talk about his problems, but slamming a candidate for mere lack of a degree is shallow and a low blow. Got a substantive argument I'm all ears. I'm not even a republican, anymore at least, but I do think college is overrated, too many people judge others based on the college litmus

    Most of them wouldn't take the pay cut.

    Why couldn't you just make the poll Yes, No, or I don't know? Push polls are irritating. To answer your question no I don't think his lack of a college degree disqualifies him.

    And I haven't assumed that all college drop outs aren't capable of excellence.

    I'm not quite sure why 'County Commissioner' , Governor and career politician is regarded as such stellar accomplishments- certainly not on par with Gates and Jobs.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
