Young people helped elect President Obama in 2008 and 2012, but they're giving him low marks now.

The wide-ranging poll of 18- to 29-year-olds, released Wednesday morning by Harvard's Institute of Politics, found that America's young people are disillusioned with Obama's tenure in office and disapprove of his handling of the country's major issues.
