74% in Louisiana Like Job Governor Jindal Is Doing
Tuesday, June 29, 2010
Seventy-four percent (74%) of Louisiana voters now approve of the job being done by Governor Bobby Jindal, a 10-point jump from April for the already–popular chief executive.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state finds that just 26% disapprove of the performance of the Republican governor who has taken a hands-on approach to the Gulf oil leak and been highly critical of the response by BP and the federal government.
These findings include 40% who Strongly Approve of Jindal’s job performance and 10% who Strongly Disapprove.
Even as oil washes up on their shores from the still-spewing leak in the Gulf of Mexico, 79% of Louisiana voters believe offshore oil drilling should be allowed, and nearly as many (72%) support deepwater drilling. But then, according to Reuters, President Obama’s six-month ban on deepwater oil drilling affects 38,000 Louisiana workers in an industry that generates about 16% of the state’s gross domestic product.
