Younger Americans would toss Barack Obama out of his job if they could, according to a Harvard survey.

The most startling finding of Harvard University’s Institute of Politics: A majority of Americans under age 25–the youngest millennials–would favor throwing Obama out of office.

The survey, part of a unique 13-year study of the attitudes of young adults, finds that America’s rising generation is worried about its future, disillusioned with the U.S. political system, strongly opposed to the government’s domestic surveillance apparatus, and drifting away from both major parties. It blows a gaping hole in the belief among many Democrats that Obama’s two elections signaled a durable grip on the youth vote.

Indeed, millennials are not so hot on their president.

When asked if they would want to recall various elected officials, 45 percent of millennials said they would oust their member of Congress; 52 percent replied “all members of Congress” should go; and 47 percent said they would recall Obama. The recall-Obama figure was even higher among the youngest millennials, ages 18 to 24, at 52 percent.

Question is how they perceive Clinton as his successor.

The real story here (if you go to the link) is that only 1% of Obama voters would change their vote to Romney if they were able to. That means that the socialist brainwashing they have received is far more powerful than cold hard reality, and that they have lost the capacity to learn.

you mean the same folks that went 66% for obama in '08 and 60% in '12 are unhappy in '13? if obama was running in '16 he'd carry the dumb whiny vote again.

Yeh, sure.

We'll see about that when he cranks up his program for free smart phone data plans for anyone under the age of 30.

80% of Millennials, or more, will vote for communism again in 2016. Because they have been brainwashed for 20+ years, and it takes about 30 years of real life to undo it.

Before everyone breaks out the "Millennial Tea Party" banners, remember that the majority of them have been awash in Progressive propaganda for years to equate the GOP, conservative values, classic liberal ideas as "evil". While they may see Obama as a False God now, how many will eagerly line up to vote for Elizabeth Warren, or any other farther left candidate?

I agree - their discontent is probably based more on the government not seizing enough power to MAKE the economy better. I imagine most would line up lockstep behind someone who promised "free" healthcare for all and "living wages", as long as they promised to stop monitoring their Facebook accounts.
