Ladies and Gentlemen, Louisiana Governor, Bobby Jindal has left the building, saying “this is not my time.” Considering that he was polling at less than 1% in recent polls, I think he is probably right. Will it ever be his time? It’s hard to tell.
My impressions of Bobby Jindal were somewhat neutral. He seems to be able to connect with an audience, but anybody campaigning at this level should certainly have that ability. However, Jindal’s low and dropping approval ratings in his home state have made easy pickings for other candidates in this crowded field and his campaign seems to have been struggling since the beginning. He has worked hard to build a following here in Iowa. It seems like he is here almost every week. But it just isn’t translating to the kind of support he needs to do well in the caucus.
I had planned to give a quick run down on each candidate’s position on the hot button issues, but it a moot point in this case since Bobby has dropped out. Who’s next to step away from the hot oven? Will we see Bobby again in 4 years, or are his future presidential prospects as dead as Elvis? What do you think?
