Bobby Jindal Likely to Win Reelection

On Saturday, Louisianans will head to the polls to cast their votes in the gubernatorial primary. Bobby Jindal, who is widely expected to win reelection, was the youngest U.S. governor elected back in 2007. He was 36.


Louisiana is one of only several states that hold nonpartisan blanket primaries in which all candidates appear on the same ballot. Essentially, if an individual wins 50% of the vote, he or she wins the governorship. But, if none of the candidates garner a clear majority, the top two contenders will face off in the state's gubernatorial general election on November 19. CNN reports:


But Jindal, who's seeking a second term, faces little opposition. His nine opponents poll with a combined 15%, according to a Clarus Research Group poll conducted in early October. Jindal comes in with 57%, while 29% remained undecided.

Survey results come from 602 likely voters interviewed Oct. 5-7 by telephone and has an error margin of plus or minus four percentage points.

Early in his term, Jindal was widely considered a rising GOP star and once thought to be a possible 2012 presidential contender. He's now backing neighboring state Texas Gov. Rick Perry in his bid for the White House.



Update: On Saturday night, Bobby Jindal won reelection in a landslide victory, garnering nearly 70% of the vote. He will serve another four year term as Louisiana's 55th governor.

Update II: Governor Jindal won exactly 65.8% of the vote, according to the Bobby Jindal Campaign Committee, which is the highest percentage ever won by a candidate in Louisiana since the open primary system was established.
