Madison, N.J. - A new poll suggests Governor Bobby Jindal is no longer a top contender for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.

Late last year, multiple polls had Jindal in the running.  Now, he's not even on the radar in a new poll conducted by Fairleigh Dickinson University.

The poll's top GOP contender is Florida Senator Marco Rubio. He got 18 percent support among poll respondents. Former Florida governor Jeb Bush comes in second with support from 16 percent.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and former Senator Rick Santorum round out the top four possible candidates.

Governor Jindal has commented on speculation about a possible run, saying he's not interested in a presidential campaign in 2016.

Meantime, Hillary Clinton dominates a field of potential candidates for the Democratic nomination for president.  

"63 percent of self-identified Democrats and those who lean Democratic support the former Secretary of State, with her potential rivals trailing her significantly," reads a news release from the Fairleigh Dickinson pollsters . "Twelve percent favor current Vice President Joe Biden, and three percent support New York Governor Andrew Cuomo."
