Barack Obama, who was re-elected for the second consecutive term to run the country's top administrative job, seems to have dissatisfied young Americans with his decisions regarding the Syrian crisis, economy, healthcare and federal budget deficit, according to the results of a Harvard University Institute of Politics survey.

The national poll of more than 2,000 people aged 18 through 29 was conducted between Oct. 30 and Nov. 11 to provide insights into the political views of the millennial generation.

More than 50 percent of respondents in the survey said that they were disappointed with the Democratic president on the way he handled issues in his second term, especially in the economic sector. About 57 percent of them disliked the Obamacare law, while 40 percent of the respondents predicted that the quality of healthcare will deteriorate. About half of them are expecting the costs to rise.

"This isn't a problem for Obama because he's not coming up for election again," Institute of Politics Director Trey Grayson said. "But it is a potential problem for any Democratic candidate seeking to mobilize young Americans," Inforum reports.

Although the young voters of the country were unhappy with the functioning of the government, they said that they would still vote for him today.

Some 46 percent said that they would vote for Obama for president compared with 35 percent who said their preferred choice was former Republican nominee, Mitt Romney.

The recent results follow a CNN/ORC poll released on Nov. 25 that reflected the current mindset of the youngsters. The poll found that increasing number of Americans disputed Obama's capability in running the nation amid ongoing problems plaguing the government like Obamacare.

The administration also took some public censure for dealing poorly with the Syrian government over its alleged use of chemical weapons, Iran's nuclear ambitions, and failing to restore the economy.

"A critical factor in the election and reelection of Barack Obama, America's 18- to 29- year-olds now rate the President's job performance closer to that of Congress - and at the lowest level since he took office in 2009," said Grayson. "Overcoming today's bitter partisanship and governmental gridlock is essential to showing Millennials and all our citizens that Washington, D.C. - and our democratic process - can still work and make a difference," Sun Times reports.
