"I would say he's just not well known with a distinctive message at this point."
Jindal also received two-percent when respondents were asked for their second choice. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker lead the poll with 16-percent, followed by Kentucky Senator Rand Paul with 15-percent. The poll also showed the governor's unfavorable numbers rose to 20-percent. Selzer says it's important for Jindal to speak in a distinctive voice.
"I think, when we have a field this big, that's the trick for candidates, is to carve out a message space for yourself that people can resonate to and then also say, 'Well that's a different thing.'"
Jindal has yet to officially announce his candidacy for president. Selzer says, if he is going to run, it would probably benefit Jindal to make a few more trips to Iowa to make more of an impression on voters there.
"Iowans have an open ear and they like to take a look at the candidates and really get to know them and really understand their positions. He's welcome anytime."
