President Barack Obama has always had a strong approval rating with young voters, but now, a majority of young people under age 25 would recall him if they could, according to a poll released Wednesday.

The Harvard University Institute of Politics poll of millenials found that 52 percent of young people would recall Obama if that were an option. Among young people age 25 to 29, 40 percent said they would recall the president.

Overall, 47 percent of young people ages 18-29 said they would recall him, while 46 percent said they would not.

The results are based on interviews with 2,089 Americans between ages 18 and 29 from Oct. 30 through Nov. 11. The margin of error is plus or minus 2.1 percentage points.
