Poll: 54 Percent of Young People Disapprove of President Obama's Job Performance

Sharp decline from earlier this year, reversal from 2009


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.
