Jindal defends his low popularity rating in Louisiana

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Gov. Bobby Jindal took his run for the White House to mainstream media Wednesday morning.

Jindal stopped by CBS This Morning, where Gayle King pressed him about how he plans to win votes on a national level, when his approval rating at home is at an all-time low of 32 percent.

"If folks are looking for a popular politician, you can govern by the polls," Jindal said. "You kiss babies, cut ribbons, don't do anything. That's not what our country needs. We're in serious trouble right now. We've got to shrink our federal government, grow our private sector economy. I've done that in Louisiana. I can do that in DC."
