"Overall, he has a positive job rating of 51 percent," according to the Southern Media & Opinion Research poll. "That compares with a 61 percent approval last spring and 64 percent approval a year ago."
Pollster Bernie Pinsonat points to some of the factors that respondents noted for Jindal the drop in popularity.
"Forty-three percent of respondents said this year's budget cuts have negatively impacted their families, including 36 percent among Republicans."
He says education reforms and attempts to reform state employee retirement also hurt Jindal.
The dissatisfaction with the governor largely falls along party lines.
The latest survey shows that while Jindal still gets high ratings from 78 percent of Republicans, 63 percent of Democrats rate his performance as 'not so good' or 'poor,'" Pinsonat noted.
