Default 95 Jetta hard start

I think it might be the ignition switch, but there could be another factor.

I have to jiggle the key to get the car to start when I turn the ignition over, and if I dont give it any gas, it will instantly die.

I have to hold the key in the start position and hold the gas to the floor in order for it to stay running?

It will blow a small puff of white smoke, then stay running after doing all this.
