Poll: In Bobby Jindal vs. Hillary Clinton, Louisiana voters say they want the Democrat

and what does it say when the incumbent Governor would lose his own Republican State to an unpopular Democrat?
Quote:

Louisiana has not voted for a Democratic presidential candidate since 1996, but the latest poll from The Advocate/WWL-TV found Jindal also is viewed less favorably than President Barack Obama among Louisiana voters.

The poll, conducted by Ron Faucheux of the Clarus Research Group on behalf of the news organizations, found Jindal’s favorability at just 34 percent in Louisiana as he campaigns for president. About 62 percent of voters said they now view Jindal unfavorably. Three percent were unsure.

Obama, meanwhile, polled at 40 percent favorable to 59 percent unfavorable. Just 1 percent of the Louisiana voters surveyed had no opinion on the sitting U.S. president.


Oh no! He's doomed:  Bobby Jindal camp denies they’ve lost ‘Duck Dynasty’ endorsement

Meanwhile: Campaigns start too early? Well, not Jim Gilmore’s.

Quote:
Jim Gilmore is running for president.

He’s just not campaigning for president. That’s what sets him apart.

In fact, since Gilmore — a former governor of Virginia — officially got into the presidential race on July 30, he has not held a single formal campaign event with actual voters present.

I think that a lot of candidates are forced to start early in order to garner the funds they need to run a campaign.

Was The Second Debate The Beginning Of The End For Donald Trump?

Quote:
The “narrative” coming out of CNN’s Republican debate last week has been that Carly Fiorina notched another victory, in part by crushing Donald Trump. Here at FiveThirtyEight, we take a lot of shots at political media narratives, so it seems only fair to point out that, in this case, the narrative is right: Eight national polls of GOP voters have been conducted related to the Republican race for president since the debate, and they show a couple of clear winners and losers — Fiorina won; Trump lost.

Looks like Democrat supporters are more intelligent that Republican supporters, if grammatical skills are any indication.

Grammar study

Chaffee, Sanders, and O'Malley supporters lead the pack, Trumpites are at the tail...

Probably why the Republicans are not that upset at losing education funding.
