SummaryRecent polls suggest that Jindal's once-formidable job performance rating has fallen below 50%.

raised by Hindu parents, Jindal has spent countless Sundays in Protestant north Louisiana sharing his personal testimony. He signed the Louisiana Science Education Act that allows science teachers to use outside curriculum, a move that Nobel laureates protest as a back-door to teach Biblical creation as science.

He has created one of America's largest school voucher programs _ with a price tag of $25 million this year _ that pays for children to attend religious schools that teach creationism and reject evolution.

The program weakens the power of the teachers' unions, a key source of Democratic support.

Over his five years in office, Jindal has traveled to three dozen states to collect campaign dollars, meet voters and help other Republican candidates.

As he pushes his tax overhaul, he's hired former communications aides who worked for Romney and one-time presidential candidate Mike Huckabee.

Jindal has also tapped into an extensive network of Republican fundraising and consulting firms that could help launch future political campaigns and built political relationships across key presidential states like Iowa and New Hampshire.
