The majority of South Africa's youth would support a motion of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma, a survey found.
The survey, by consumer insights company Pondering Panda, asked 2801 respondents to imagine that they were members of parliament taking part in a vote of no confidence.
The result of the poll showed that the majority of respondents, all of whom were aged 18 to 34, had little faith in Zuma's leadership ability.
Sixty percent said they would support the motion of no confidence, compared to 25 percent who thought his performance was satisfactory. Sixteen percent of respondents were unsure as to how they would have voted.
Although young black respondents were least likely to be negative about Zuma's performance, a majority of them (57 percent), gave him the thumbs down. This in comparison to 73 percent of whites and coloureds, and 79 percent of Indians who felt the same way.
In terms of regional differences, only one region, KZN, was happy, on balance with the performance of the president. 34 percent of KZN respondents voted against him, compared to 47 percent who gave him a positive rating.
Butch Rice, spokesperson for Pondering Panda, said, "If parliament were to reflect the views of South Africa's youth, a vote of no confidence in our president would be carried by a healthy majority.
"What is interesting is that the negative reaction to Zuma cuts across racial lines. And there is only one region, KZN, in which he can count on support from young people. If Zuma is re-elected for a second term, his lack of popularity has negative implications for the ANC in the next election."
Interviews were carried out on cell phones between the 23rd and 26th of November across South Africa. Results were weighted to be nationally representative.
