12/04/2013The IOP has released its latest national poll on the political views of “Millennials,” America’s 18-29 year-olds.
Approval of President Obama, both parties in Congress slides across the board; near majority of America’s 18- to 29- year-olds would support recalling Congress and the President
Cambridge, MA – A new national poll of America’s 18- to 29- year-olds by Harvard’s Institute of Politics (IOP), located at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, finds a solid majority of Millennials disapprove of the comprehensive health reform package that the president signed into law in 2010, regardless of whether the law is referred to as the “Affordable Care Act” (56%: disapprove) or as “Obamacare” (57%: disapprove). Less than three-in-ten uninsured Millennials say they will definitely or probably enroll in insurance through an exchange if and when they are eligible.
The IOP’s newest poll results – its 24th major release since 2000 – also show a majority (52%) of Millennials would choose to recall all members of Congress if it were possible – and a slightly smaller proportion saying the same about President Obama (47% recall, 46% not recall). The poll also finds President Obama’s job approval rating at the lowest level reported (41%) since the beginning of his presidency. A detailed report on the poll’s findings is available online: http://bit.ly/IEbOmT.
