Nearly two-thirds of young Americans are disengaged from political and civic life and only a quarter regularly vote, a survey released on Tuesday showed.

The study also found an increase in anti-immigrant sentiment among Americans age 15 to 25 over the past four years and a drop in acceptance of homosexuals.

The survey of 1,700 people was carried out by the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement at the University of Maryland between April 27 and June 11. It had a margin of error of 2.6 percentage points.
