Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal thinks he has a chance to be president when he is deeply unpopular in his own state.

The Republican governor is at open war with many of his erstwhile allies in the business community and the legislature. He spent weeks pushing a “religious freedom” bill that failed to pass, while having little contact with legislators trying to solve Louisiana’s worst budget crisis in 25 years.

Jindal is now so unpopular in deep-red Louisiana that his approval rating plunged to 32 percent in a recent poll — compared with 42 percent for President Obama, who lost the state by 17 percentage points in 2012.

    Deeply unpopular barely begins to cover it. Are all these candidates complete narcissists? How can they believe they’ll win anything?

      And that’s in the states where people actually know them. When they get to Iowa, they won’t get disapproval so much as complete apathy. There are only a few nationally known candidates, and the rest of them are on the fringe. And the fringe is a long way from the center. If there are still more than a dozen candidates in Iowa, two or three will get 10% or more, the rest will get in low single digits. Several will drop out from lack of funds. The campaign just can’t support that many clowns in the clown car.

      They’ll each win $36 M of Koch’s $900 M+ divided by 25 grifters.

    Louisiana wouldn’t mind getting rid of lil Bobby, they want to push him off on the rest of the country. Same with Walker. We’d like to get rid of him too, but it’s not fair imposing him on the nation as a whole.
