Study: Obama Youth Support Waning

A new poll conducted by Harvard University, President Barack Obama’s alma mater, found that a growing number of younger voters, many of whom voted for him in 2008, think he will lose the next election.

“This survey may well serve as an ominous sign for Barack Obama’s 2012 chances and the political engagement of America’s largest generation,” said John Della Volpe, polling director at Harvard’s Institute of Politics.

The poll surveyed American 18- to 29-year-olds and found that 36 percent of millennials predict Obama will lose his bid for re-election. The survey shows former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney faring best among potential Republican challengers in a general election match-up against Obama, trailing the President by 11 percentage points, 37 percent to 26 percent. Forty-six percent of those surveyed approved of Obama’s Presidential job performance.

The poll also demonstrates that only one in four millennials support the OWS movement, and 52 percent believe that America is heading in the wrong direction.
