A poll by the Glascock Group in Alexandria shows candidates for the 5th Congressional District would do well to avoid Gov. Bobby Jindal's support.
The poll showed 53 percent of voters were less likely to vote for a candidate whose campaign staff was associated with the governor.
Only 24 percent said they were more likely to vote for a candidate, and the remaining 23 percent didn't have an opinion.
The poll was first reported by Greg Hilburn at The News-Star. It polled 466 likely voters in the district and had a margin of error of plus-or-minus three points.
