DescriptionBATON ROUGE, La. -- Approval of Gov. Bobby Jindal continues to slip among Louisianans, according to a new Southern Media & Opinion Research survey, and his major tax reform plan, which calls for the end of state income tax, is also unpopular.

The survey has Jindal's current approval rating at 38 percent, down from 51 percent in October 2012.

"Thirty-eight percent of respondents rated his job performance favorably, while 60 percent disapproved. This represents a stunning reversal for Jindal who, only a few years ago, was considered one of the country's most popular governors."

The governor's cuts to health care and higher education is fueling the disapproval from residents, according to the survey. Seventy-eight percent surveyed disapproved any further budget cuts to the state healthcare system.
