More than half of 5,000 18-29 year-old Pakistanis polled said democracy had not been good for them or the country.
Furthermore, 94% said Pakistan was going in the wrong direction - a figure up from 50% in 2007.
Making up almost a third of registered voters, the under-30s are expected to play a big part in Pakistan's general elections in May.
When asked to pick the best political system, both Sharia law and military rule were favoured over democracy.
