    ... poll.  A couple of interesting points made at Nola.com:

    When it came to health care policy, 62 percent opposed -- either somewhat or strongly -- implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. Over 40 percent -- 55 percent when "leaning" numbers were included -- also favored Jindal's rejection of Medicaid expansion under the federal law. Over 86 percent of those polled have health insurance.

    A full breakdown of the poll results will not be released to the press or public, Anderson said Monday, because "there's a lot of strategic stuff in there."

    According to U.S. Census data, the white-black breakdown of the state is roughly 64-32 percent. The demographics represented in the poll were 67-22 percent. Party affiliation for those polled was split 41.5-40 between Democrats and Republicans while actual voter registration numbers in the state are split 48-28 percent roughly between the two parties, according to the Louisiana Secretary of State.

    There is a link in the comments section of the nola.com article that points to another poll.  That poll (from a group called "Conservative Intel", dated 8/16 and does include crosstabs) pegs Jindal's approval rating at 35%.  Please note that I can't vouch for the poll or dailykingfish as being reputable.  But it's on the internet so it has to be true, right?  An addition warning, the "Conservative Intel" poll includes questions about the show "Duck Dynasty"
