WASHINGTON, Oct. 26 (UPI) -- More U.S. likely voters said they think Barack Obama's presidency is a failure than a success, a United Press International poll indicated.

Thirty-seven percent of adults said Obama's presidency is a failure while 31 said it was a success, results of the UPI-CVoter poll released Friday indicated. Twenty-nine percent said Obama's record reflected neither success nor failure.

More men than women labeled Obama's presidency as a failure, 40 percent to 34 percent, respectively.

While young voters generally have been supportive of the president, 27 percent of those in the 18-34 age group said he failed, results indicated. Thirty-four percent said the president's first term was a success.

Forty-four percent of adults age 55 years and older and 40 percent of the 35-54 age group said they thought Obama failed during his first term.

States considered Democratic strongholds were closely divided -- 34 percent adults in blue states said Obama failed and 35 percent said he succeeded.

The data is based on nationwide telephone interviews Oct. 10 through Wednesday with 3,065 adults who said they were likely to vote in the Nov. 6 election. The margin of error in the data is 3.5 percent.
