Jindal scores asterisk, zero in CNN poll, time for him to quit presidential campaign?
Written by 

jindal-twitter Louisiana Governor has been getting little exposure in main-stream media for his presidential campaign since Donald Trump has entered the GOP primary scene. 

 

He hardly has a heartbeat in the polls.  The most recent poll from CNN/ORC  shows him with an asterisk rather than an actual number.  The results show he has dropped two points since its last July 22-25 survey.    

Real Clear Politics explains it better.  He scores a goose egg.  A zero.  By comparison the poll leader, Trump is at 24%.  In the recent Fox News poll, Jindal received 1%.

With Trump soaking up all of the attention, with Jindal scoring no higher than one percent and at CNN asterisk level, at that--with fifteen other candidates pleading for airtime to compete with Trump, one might wonder, the obvious.  Is it time for Jindal to fold the campaign tent and come home to Louisiana, where he is building a house to live after he vacates the Governor mansion in January 2016?

While some might agree, Jindal probably does not.  So, while the networks seem not wanting to cover him and some of his other opponents, here are some recent tweets from his twitter account, some observatory comments, recent articles and tweets that cite his name.

 

A quick look at his feed shows he wants to show he's high-stepping too.  In this tweet, he compares his cowboy boots to a young Iowanian's cornkickers.   

Despite his recent urgings that republican candidates be more civil, he's in a battle with a fellow republican governor, Scott Walker of Wisconsin.  Here are just two of his tweets on the issue.

Of course, one of the major issues of the campaign trail, courtesy of Donald Trump, is immigration reform.  Jindal has chimed in, stating count him in.  Citizenship for illegal immigrants must go.  Needless to say, the citizenship controversy has stoked scrutiny as to whether Jindal and other republican candidates have their own  issues

While Louisiana citizens have not been able to talk government with Jindal over the past few years, Jindal is available for deep discussion with a long line of interested caucus goers.  I guess if Louisiana citizens want to ask the governor a question about his real job, they'll just have to catch him in Des Moines or elsewhere.

So, tell us, is it time for Govrnor Bobby Jindal to quit the presidential campaign?  Comment below.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
