Young people, who played a major role in putting President Obama in the White House in 2008 and keeping him there after 2012, now say they would vote to recall the president if given the chance.

A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll shows 52 percent of Americans between the ages of 18 and 24 say they would vote to recall Obama. Among young people aged 18 to 29, the number is 47 percent.

The question, of course, is purely hypothetical. While state and local officials can be recalled — the most recent major example being Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R), who overcame a recall — a president cannot.
