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.

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.

There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”
