Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal doesn’t appear to have seen a significant bump in his polling numbers since formally launching his candidacy for president last month.
Jindal, who has repeatedly dismissed his low polling figures as irrelevant, polled at 2 percent among the crowded Republican field of possible presidential hopefuls in a CNN/ORC International survey released today. That’s up from 1 percent of respondents in the May version of the poll, but he had previously reached 2 percent in April.
Those figures from the latest CNN poll included 256 self-identified Republicans and 151 independents who lean Republican. The margin of error is 5 percent.
A Quinnipiac University poll also released today that focused on likely Iowa Republican Caucus participants found Jindal at 3 percent — tied for 12th place out of the likely GOP candidates tested. His polling among Evangelical Christians, a group he has heavily courted, wasn’t higher than his overall average.
The Quinnipiac survey took place June 20-29, so the immediate run-up to Jindal’s June 24 announcement and the days immediately following. (Read the full methodology here)
According to RealClearPolitics’ current analysis, Jindal is no longer alone in last place in the running for the GOP’s nomination. He’s now tied with South Carolina Sen. Lindsay Graham at 1.2 percent.
