- Most youth unhappy with Obama's job performance: poll
By Richard Valdmanis BOSTON (Reuters) - Young Americans are unhappy with virtually every major thing President Barack Obama has done since he was re-elected, but they would still vote for him today, according to the results of a Harvard University survey released on Wednesday. This increasingly influential demographic known as the "millennial generation" has been a traditional base of Obama's support. Still, disapproval ratings were higher for both Republicans and Democrats in Congress. And a plurality of respondents, 46 percent, said they would still vote for Obama for president if they could recast their 2012 ballots, compared with 35 percent who said they would vote for the then-Republican nominee, Mitt Romney.

- Poll: Millennials turn on Obama, don't like Obamacare, either
The high hopes that many young Americans placed in Barack Obama now appear to be crashing down. In the past six months, President Obama’s approval rating has dipped 11 points to 41 percent among 18- to 29-year-olds, the generation known as Millennials, according to a poll released Wednesday by the Institute of Politics at Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass. Along with older generations, Millennials are growing increasingly disenchanted with the way Washington is operating: Only 1 in 5 of more than 2,000 Millennials polled said they approve of the direction the country is headed, down from 1 in 4 young people surveyed in April. In perhaps the survey's most surprising finding, a near majority of Millennials – 47 percent – would support recalling the president if it were possible (it's not).
