Jindal’s Downward Spiral Continues

The polling collapse continues for Governor Bobby Jindal.

Through the height of Carnival season, we found that a GOP polling firm reported Bobby Jindal’s approval ratings had slipped under the political mendoza line:

Gov. Bobby Jindal’s approval ratings have dipped below 50 percent for the first time, according to a poll released Friday (Feb. 8) by Voter/Consumer Research in Washington, DC. The poll, which also took the temperature of Louisianians on recent national and statewide health-care decisions, highlighted how nearly half of those polled believe the state is on the wrong track.

In fact, this firm (whose only clients are businesses and GOP groups) found that Jindal’s approval just barely broke 49% of those polled. Without a strong track record, it’s hard to understand any bias or trendlines.

Today, the news got even worse for Governor Jindal. Public Policy Polling, a Democratic pollster with a sterling reputation, conducted a poll of Louisianians last week. And their results were even starker:

When PPP last polled Louisiana in 2010, Bobby Jindal was one of the most popular Governors in the country. 58% of voters approved of the job he was doing to just 34% who disapproved. Over the last two and a half years though there’s been a massive downward shift in Jindal’s popularity, and he is now one of the most unpopular Governors in the country. Just 37% of voters now think he’s doing a good job to 57% who are unhappy with him.

Yes, you read that right. 37%.

Barack Obama won 40% of Louisiana’s popular vote in 2012.

Bobby Jindal is officially less popular than Barack Obama in Louisiana. In Louisiana.
