Baton Rouge, La. - Governor Bobby Jindal ranks among one of the favorites as a potential 2016 presidential candidate.

Pollsters for FOX News asked people the question, "Who do you think would make a good president?"

Governor Jindal garnered double digit support with 16 percent support.

Out of the dozen potential candidates, the top two picks were Hillary Clinton and Condoleezza Rice.

Meantime, a separate poll by the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling finds Jindal's popularity in Louisiana has slipped substantially, according to a report by The Huffington Post.

"A 57 percent majority of Louisiana voters now disapprove of their Republican governor's performance, compared to 37 percent who approve, according to PPP," reads the report. "In August 2010, those numbers were nearly reversed, with 58 percent approving and 34 percent disapproving."
