Bobby Jindal gets 50 percent approval in Republican poll

Aug 19 2013, 10:48pm CDT | by IANS

Washington, Aug 20 (IANS) Louisiana's Indian American governor Bobby Jindal, seen as a potential Republican presidential candidate in 2016, has an approval rating at 50 percent in his home state, according to an internal party poll.

Washington, Aug 20 — Louisiana's Indian American governor Bobby Jindal, seen as a potential Republican presidential candidate in 2016, has an approval rating at 50 percent in his home state, according to an internal party poll.

Jindal, who was re-elected governor in 2011 for a second four year term, is term-limited that is he cannot contest for the State's top job again.

The Republican survey, conducted last week also found President Barack Obama's approval rating as 37 percent in the state, according to the Politico, an influential Washington news site focused on politics.

The poll found that 55 percent Louisianans support Jindal's controversial decision not to expand Medicaid, a US government health programme for families and individuals with low income and resources, with 37 percent opposed.

Four-fifths of Republicans also favour his Medicaid position.

The poll also found that 62 percent of Louisianans oppose Obama's signature healthcare law, nicknamed Obamacare, that aims to increase the quality and affordability of health insurance in US, 53 percent strongly so. Only 33 percent favour the law.

OnMessage Inc., Jindal's main consulting firm, surveyed 800 voters from Aug 12 to 15 for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, Politico reported.

The results were weighted to reflect historic turnout trends. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

The Washington Post previously reported their finding that Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu leads Republican front-runner House member Bill Cassidy by 4 points, 45 percent to 41 percent. Cassidy was up among independents by 4 points, 41 percent to 37 percent, according to Politico.

Landrieu voted for the 2010 health care overhaul.

The left's tactics – a personal example

Nov 3 2014 6:55pm CST | Source: WND

Last week, I was a speaker and the emcee at a rally convened by the Republican Party and WLSS, the Sarasota station that carries my radio show. The other speakers were Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, and Ralph Reed, founder of the Faith and Freedom Coalition. I spoke for about 25 minutes, about two minutes of which drew national attention from the left. I spoke about “the divisions that the Democrats have engaged in making in this country.” Then I ...

Ebola Is Good

Nov 3 2014 2:28pm CST | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

The Ebola virus is the best thing to happen to American politicians in years. Ebola has done what neither war, climate change, nor economic meltdown have accomplished. It has united our politicians in action because Ebola is bad. Ebola threatens America. It came dangerously close to infecting a King Charles Spaniel in Texas. Like that nerd in grade school who always raises his hand, no one likes the Ebola virus. Our political lea ...

Does Satire News Influence Elections?

Oct 31 2014 9:22pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

As Election Day looms, The Daily Show ramped up their media coverage by heading to Texas for a week of shows entitled Democalypse 2014: South by South Mess. A Comedy Central show relocated to broadcast on-the-spot election coverage. That should strike us as strange, right? But in all likelihood, it doesn't. The idea that a satire news show would take election coverage so seriously no longer comes as a surprise. How did satire news beco ...

Politicians Are No Scientists On Climate Change, But They're Happy To Give Medical Opinions On Ebola

Oct 21 2014 1:47pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

"I'm not a scientist, but …" has become something of a cliché among politicians who want to weigh in on climate science without actually having to say whether they believe it. But when it comes to Ebola, a number of the same not-a-scientist politicians have been more than happy to provide their medical opinions, as Think Progress documented Monday. Many of these politicians have made false statements about Ebola, from claiming one could catch it at a c ...

Obama Fails to Protect Us, Again

Oct 7 2014 1:13pm CDT | Source: Big Government

Of all the examples of incompetence and failure to protect Americans that the Obama Administration has displayed, its failure to keep Ebola out of our country may be the worst. Obama’s number-one job is to keep dangerous people from coming into America, and he has flunked the test. Ebola is a particularly horrible disease. Infected patients face a death rate of 25 to 90 percent. Long ago, our country designated Ellis Island ...

Of all the examples of incompetence and failure to protect Americans the Obama administration has displayed, its failure to keep Ebola out of our country may be the worst. Obama’s No. 1 job is to keep dangerous people from coming into America, and he has flunked the test. Ebola is a particularly horrible disease. Infected patients face a death rate of 25 to 90 percent.

They're Blowing It Again

Oct 6 2014 1:43pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

A little known fact is that back in the early days of the New Deal, many liberals opposed what the Roosevelt administration was doing to deal with the Depression. It was not that they embraced greater capitalism; rather, they feared the expansion of the federal government. Their frame of reference was the dismal twenties, when the Feds had pursued repressive policies, and liberals dreaded their continuation. To these stalwarts, the epitome of federal activism could be summed up in one wo ...
