Jindal continues to poll low in Iowa
Posted on 9/1/2015 11:04:00 AM.
The latest Republican presidential polls in Iowa show Governor Bobby Jindal rounding up very little support.  A Monmouth University survey shows Jindal receiving one-percent of Iowa Republican caucus goers support, while a Bloomberg/Des Moines Register poll shows him with two-percent.  

Political analyst Bernie Pinsonat says this has got to be discouraging for Jindal's campaign.
"He's spending money on television, he's going to be in every county, he says that he has standing room only crowds, but the polls aren't reflecting his optimism."

In the Bloomberg poll, Jindal's favorability was within the top 5 candidates which could be an indicator that the governor should be able to improve his standing in the Republican field.  But Pinsonat says the fact that Jindal is a sitting governor could be working against him.

"At the present time, the majority of the Republican voters who are paying attention, aren't enthused by someone who's been elected.  They're looking for someone who's not part of the system and not part of the problem."

He says Jindal has a few months left to generate some excitement around his campaign and move up in the polls.  Pinsonat says you can expect Jindal to remain in the race at least through the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary.

"I'm sure he's going to try to hang on until February, March, April.  But, unless his numbers move up dramatically, by the time the spring gets here, he won't be around."
