What About Bobby Jindal?

Bobby Jindal is about as popular in Louisiana as the Ebola virus. He has screwed up higher education and medical care to the point where any Republican is going to have trouble getting elected in 2015. Plus, he looks like a ferret. I live in his congressional district and he was a terrible congressman.

Sad news? Not to me. Good riddance. Another plutocrat done gone.
You are not telling the truth about the numbers. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2014/senate/louisiana_senate_race.html
I don't know where you get your poll numbers, but none of the polls reported in realclearpolitics.com has Cassidy that high when Maness and the other candidates are included; the highest is 40% with Maness at 9%. I think you are making the numbers up. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2014/senate/louisiana_senate_race.html
You don't understand Louisiana politics. In the runoff, Landrieu's most numerous supporters, New Orleans Democrats, are going to stay home, It happened to "Dollar Bill" Jefferson in 2008, when Joseph Cao, running as a Republiucan, defeated him. In the runoffs, the voting runs about 2/3 of the primary.
So, everybody who wants to defeat a Democrat should genuflect before an Establishment Republican who will vote with "the Turtle" McConnell to run up the deficit? There is plenty of time to defeat Landrieu in the runoff in December. ANY vote for any candidate who is not Landrieu helps put her in a runoff, where she will lose to any candidate. Her limit is in the low 40%, she is not going to win a runoff.
Spoken like a true Republican Establishmentarian.
Once again, Townhall follows the Establishment Republican line, that there are just two candidates that matter in the Louisiana November Primary election, Landrieu and Cassidy. The actual lineup is much different. Mary Landrieu - Incumbent Democratic Party Wayne Ables[8] Democratic Party Vallian Senegal[8] Democratic Party William Waymire Jr.[8] Democratic Party Raymond Brown[8] Republican Party Bill Cassidy - Representative from the 6th District[9] Republican Party Thomas Clements[8] Republican Party Rob Maness - Retired Air Force colonel[10] Libertarian Party Brannon McMorris[11] Landrieu will almost certainly be on the ballot in December, but even that isn't set in stone. Her main constituency is New Orleans blacks and crony capitalists, and New Orleans blacks haven't gotten much from her efforts in the Senate.
Don't be too hard on Eleanor Clift. She follows the Party Line now just like she learned when she was in the Communist Party back in Stalinist times. Old habits die hard. And following the Party Line is really hard in the times of Obama, because it changes on a very rapid and completely random pattern, especially if someone is filming Joe Biden. He often doesn't get the memo.
I live in Louisiana. I live in the congressional district Jindal represented in Congress. Anybody who wants this person to be president needs psychiatric intervention. He has been a terrible governor and he was a terrible representative. He has gutted the higher educational system in Louisiana. He has gutted the state medical system in Louisiana. He is subservient to the religious right and to industrial interests to the detriment of all of the citizens of Louisiana.
