Governor Jindal Sees Approval Rate Dropping
Apparently, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is not quite as popular as he used to be. That according to a new poll from Voter/Consumer Research and commissioned by the Louisiana State Medical Society. Governor Jindal faces a disapproval rating of 48 percent while only 46 percent approve of the job he is doing as Governor.
The same poll also looked at favorable ratings for Louisiana's politicians. Senator Mary Landrieu enjoys a 59 percent rating while her counterpart, Senator David Vitter has a 55 percent approval.
The poll also addressed health issues and showed that Louisiana residents have a dim view of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. 54 percent of voters disapprove of the plan while only 41 percent approve.
The poll took place over the telephone and consisted of 600 respondents over the course of January 13-17. The margin of error is 4 percent.
