Jindal seems to be positioning himself

as a moderate for 2016. My question is will he survive the GOP primaries, many in the GOP are born racists, so would they support a person who is of Indian descent? I say no, by the time 2015 gets here, I think the loons on the GOP will have even more power over the party and will never go for anyone not being a white male.

2. The trick for the GOP is for ALL of the primary candidates to position themselves as moderates

That's the only way a moderate can survive the primaries and possibly win the general election. If they can't get everyone on board, they will have an extremely conservative nominee flip-flopping for the general election. As for Jindal, I think he's already shown that he would be an extremely poor presidential candidate. His response to the President's SOTU was a failure. He wouldn't survive the primaries because he's just not that great of a politician.

5. Jindal wants to win elections

And he sees that the GOP brand is becoming toxic.
