Less than a quarter of young Americans approve of the job President Joe Biden is doing, as new polling shows that the TikTok generation has abandoned the Democrat in droves.

On Thursday, a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll found that just 24 percent of Americans ages 18 to 29 approved of how Biden was handling the presidency - giving him the hardest critique of any age group.

The same number - 24 percent - of 18 to 29-year-olds said they viewed Biden favorably, while 62 percent viewed the president unfavorably.

Among the broader group of Gen Z/Millennials - those born between 1981 and 2006 - only 37 percent said they approved of the job Biden was doing while 38 percent viewed the president favorably.

That translates into shaky support in the nearing November election.

President Joe Biden's numbers are sagging with young Americans as new polling found that only 24 percent of adults younger than 30 approved of how the 81-year-old Democrat is doing the job

President Joe Biden had a 20-point advantage over former President Donald Trump with Gen Z and millennial voters in 2020. New polling shows that he's only six points ahead of Trump in a two-way race and is six points behind Trump with this voting bloc in a five-way race

In the 2020 election, Gen Z and millennial voters favored Biden by 20 points according to exit polling.

The Pew Research Center found that 58 percent of Gen Z/Millennials voted for Biden, while 38 percent selected Trump.

Thursday's Marist poll found that among Gen Z/Millennial registered voters, if the election were held today, 52 percent would choose Biden and 46 percent would back Trump in a two-person race.

However, Biden loses to Trump among Gen Z/Millennial registered voters when third-party candidates are factored in.

The new poll found that 40 percent of Gen Z/Millennial voters would select Trump, 34 percent would pick Biden, 11 percent would vote for independent Robert F. Kennedy Jr., 4 percent would pick independent Cornel West and 6 percent would go with the Green Party's Jill Stein.

The results were similar when Marist highlighted the preference of voters younger than 45 - with 34 percent choosing Biden, 42 percent liking Trump, 10 percent into Kennedy, 4 percent backing West and 6 percent saying Stein.

Former President Donald Trump, spotted outside court Thursday, doesn't have a lock on the youth vote either. While he's viewed more favorably than Biden, the director of Marist said young people are 'double haters.' 'Where they end up is a question still,' the poll expert said

The crosstabs didn't include a further breakdown by age among registered voters as the sample size was too small.

Trump is viewed more favorably than Biden by young Americans - with 49 percent of the under-30 set saying so - but that doesn't mean the Republican necessarily has a lock on the demographic.

Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, told NPR that the group consists of 'double haters.'

'Where they end up is a question still,' Miringoff said. 'This is the unsatisfied, unattached, disliking-of-the candidates group. So it's not that they're racing to Trump, they're just not where Biden's had this group in the past.'
