Complete Breakdown of SLU Poll

OVERALL POLL RESULTS:

JINDAL 46%
BOASSO 10%
GEORGES  9%
CAMPBELL  6%
UNDECIDED/WON'T SAY 29%
MARGIN OF ERROR:   +/- 4%

A poll released by Southeastern Louisiana University Wednesday morning shows Congressman Bobby Jindal could be heading into a runoff in the race of Governor of Louisiana. The poll of 641 registered voters statewide shows Jindal, a Republican, with 46% of the vote, Democrat Walter Boasso with 10%, Independent candidate John Georges with 9%, and Democrat Foster Campbell with 6%. 29% percent of those surveyed either said they were undecided or declined to say who they planned to vote for, the university's poll said. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4%. With that margin of error, Jindal could technically still have 50% of the vote, allowing him the avoid a runoff. The poll was conducted October 1-7.

The poll also indicated 45.7% of African American voters surveyed were either undecided or refused to answer. Boasso was leading the pack among black voters, with 21.5 percent compared to Jindal's 17.7%, Campbell's 8%, and George's 7%.

The director of the poll is Kurt Corbello, an associate professor of political science at SLU.  "Bobby Jindal appears to benefit from slow changes in Louisiana political culture that started over 40 years ago with the issues and events that produced Republican growth throughout the South," Corbello said. "Those changes were perhaps enlivened by the catastrophic storms Katrina and Rita."
