Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal who has urged his own Republican party to stop being the “stupid party” trails badly in a straw poll taken at the Conservative Political Action Conference, reports Nola.com.
The poll sponsored jointly by CPAC & the Washington Times has Jindal placing eighth in a poll asking who they prefer as the 2016 GOP nominee for president.
Jindal received just 3 percent of the 2930 votes cast by conference delegates, the same as former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin.
Kentucky Governor Rand Paul and Florida Senator Marco Rubio placed first and second with 25 and 23 percent of the vote.
Jindal has been trying to improve his image with joke filled speeches at the Gridiron Dinner in Washington D.C. and at the CPAC conference where he made fun of both himself and the democrats.
