Students at Harvard — President Barack Obama’s alma mater — are shying away from the commander in chief, according to a recent poll.
The poll, conducted by Harvard University where Obama and his wife Michelle attended law school, shows the president leading presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney by a margin of 12 points among those students ages 18 to 24.
The survey also shows that among those between 25 and 29, Obama holds a 23-point lead.
The lead seems sizeable, until compared with Obama’s numbers back in 2008 when he held a 34-point advantage over Republican Sen. John McCain among voters under age 30, according to the Huffington Post
The comparison seems to indicate that he is losing his grip on a key demographic that originally helped launch his “hope and change” campaign into the White House.
