Poll shows drop in Jindal's approval rating

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Gov. Bobby Jindal's approval rating may be taking a hit, according to a recent poll.

A Southern Media and Opinion research poll showed a 13 point dip for the governor.

His approval rating is down to 51 percent, compared to 64 last fall.

The poll shows several key issues on the minds of those surveyed.

About 90 percent of those polled are concerned about proposed cuts to the LSU Hospital System and the cuts overall to the state budget.

The governor's reforms to education are getting mixed reviews, with 54 percent against the voucher program, but nearly 70 percent in favor of increasing teacher standards, including more accountability.
