US Prez poll: Bobby Jindal's popularity dips below one per cent

Washington: The popularity of Indian-origin US Presidential hopeful Bobby Jindal has dipped below one per cent, according to latest opinion polls, indicating that all is not well with his campaign.

In two leading national opinion polls CNN/ORC and NBC/Wall Street Journal Jindal's popularity rating slipped to less than one per cent, following which many political pundits were quick to pronounce a dead end to his presidential ambition at least in the 2016 elections.

However, the 44-year-old two time Louisiana Governor said he is not giving up so early.

In fact he threated to skip the next round of Republican debate as based on national poll results he has been pushed to the second tier debate.

The Republican race is now led by Donald Trump and Ben Carson, according to the CNN/ORC poll.

Trump leads the field with 27 per cent, followed by Carson at 22 per cent.

But Jindal argued Trump is going to fade.

"His numbers are already starting to fall in Iowa...," Jindal argued
