First Take: Youth shaping politics

It's possible the presidential election is not grabbing young Americans like it did in 2008.
Teens also fear that when it comes to campaigns, there is more negative than positive things being done.
In 2008, when a surge of young voters helped propel Obama to victory, Democrats and Republicans realized the importance of capturing the youth vote.
Do negative ads grab teenagers who don't seem to think about politics at all?
Are teenagers turning to radical politics to combat disagreements with government?
To vote or not to vote. That's a decision every teenager has to make.
