RGA Head Bobby Jindal “The Least Popular GOP Governor In America”

28%! Even Nick Saban had higher approval in Louisiana than Bobby Jindal in the latest PPP poll of Louisiana.

Sad week of collapse for Team Jindal. First, Monday’s CIR Harpers Poll put him at 35%. Now this from the nation’s most accurate pollster:

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) has battled bleak polling numbers all year, but a new survey out Wednesday indicates that he’s one of the least popular state leaders in the country.

The latest survey from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling, provided exclusively to TPM, showed Jindal with an approval rating of only 28 percent. Fifty-nine percent of Louisiana voters said they disapprove of the job he is doing. According to PPP, those numbers make Jindal the least popular Republican governor in the country and the second most unpopular governor overall (Democrat Pat Quinn of Illinois is the lowest rated governor in PPP’s polling). At 41 percent, President Barack Obama actually boasts a higher approval rating than Jindal in Louisiana, according to PPP.

PPP’s latest also found Jindal, who’s thought to be considering a 2016 bid, tied for fourth in a hypothetical Republican presidential primary in Louisiana. When PPP tested him against Hillary Clinton in a hypothetical general election matchup, the former secretary of state claimed a 7-point lead among all Louisiana voters.

Full poll here.

Stay tuned…
