PPP's newest Louisiana poll continues to find that Bobby Jindal is among the least popular Governors in the country, and that there is minimal support for him running for President even in his home state. Only 32% of voters approve of the job Jindal is doing to 56% who disapprove. Among Republicans his numbers are relatively tepid (57/33 approval). His numbers with independents pretty closely mirror his overall ones (32/57), and support from Democrats is virtually nonexistent (12/75).
Even among GOP voters there is little support for a Jindal bid. Just 21% think he should seek the White House to 63% who believe he should sit it out. He finishes just fourth among Republican primary voters at 12%, behind Ted Cruz at 19%, and Jeb Bush and Mike Huckabee at 17%. He leads Rand Paul's 10%, Chris Christie's 6%, Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan's 4%, and Scott Walker's 3%.
Jindal also ties for the worst of any of the Republicans when matched with Hillary Clinton, trailing her 48/44. Chris Christie also trails Clinton by 4 at 46/42, with Clinton leading Cruz 46/45, tied with Paul at 46, and trailing Bush and Huckabee each by a point at 46/45.
Perhaps the worst finding for Jindal in this poll might be that when posed with a hypothetical match up for Governor between Jindal and Edwin Edwards, voters pick Edwards by a 48/43 spread. Edwards isn't popular, sporting a 39/44 favorability rating, but that puts him in much better standing with voters than Jindal.
