A new poll of likely Louisiana voters shows Gov. Bobby Jindal’s approval rating at an all-time low.
Jindal, who could not seek re-election this year because of a term limit, is running for president. He’s been a frequent punching bag for both Democrat John Bel Edwards and Republican David Vitter in this year’s gubernatorial race.
According to the new poll from the University of New Orleans, 70 percent of respondents disapprove of the job Jindal’s doing. More than half of respondents said they “strongly disapprove” of Jindal.
“Republicans are twice as likely to strongly disapprove of Jindal today as they were just one year ago,” the summary points out.
Only 20 percent of those surveyed said Louisiana is heading in the “right direction” to 67 percent of those who believe Louisiana’s heading in the “wrong direction.”
“Even Republicans reported that the state was moving in the wrong direction by a nearly 3 to 1 margin,” the summary notes.
