Poll Shows A Dismal Approval Rating For Bobby Jindal

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) has emerged as a national voice for the Republican Party, but a poll released Wednesday suggested that his star has severely diminished at home.

According to findings from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling, a mere 37 percent of Louisiana voters approve of the job Jindal is doing compared with a majority of 57 percent who disapprove. When PPP last conducted a survey in Louisiana in 2010, 58 percent of voters said they approved of Jindal's job performance while only 34 percent disapproved.

Jindal has found himself in the spotlight in recent months. In January, he announced his proposal to abolish the state income tax in Louisiana. Jindal also made headlines for a speech he gave to an audience of Republicans last month in which he said the GOP must avoid becoming the "party of austerity."

The PollTracker Average shows that Jindal has maintained high popularity for much of his time in office.
