Another Poll Shows Millennials Can’t Support a President Who Can’t Make a Website Work

December 16, 2013

Another poll released Monday confirms that one key bloc of President Obama’s supporters is collapsing.

A new USA Today/Pew Research poll found that 46% of young voters disapprove of the President’s job performance. Only 45% approve, meaning that even in this crucial demographic, the White House is underwater.

Between the sloppy rollout of, the broken promises of ObamaCare, and the faltering economy, is anyone surprised?

From USA Today:

WASHINGTON — Millennials have provided invaluable political support to President Obama over the course of his presidency, voting for him by a roughly 2-to-1 margin in his two successful campaigns against Mitt Romney and John McCain.

But as Obama tries to climb out of a 2-month-long malaise that saw his popularity sink with the fumbled rollout of the federal health care exchange, the president appears to have nearly as much work to do with young people as he does with older Americans.

Forty-five percent of 18- to 29-year-old Americans say they approve of the way Obama is handling his job; 46% disapprove of his job performance, according to a year-end USA TODAY/Pew Research Center Poll. The president’s approval rating with young Americans — which stood at 67% just ahead of his second inauguration less than a year ago — now mirrors the general population, according to the poll.
