How are young voters feeling about the state of our democracy? We put that question to three people from around the country.

A new poll from the Harvard Institute of Politics paints a grim picture of the way most young Americans view our democracy: “in trouble” or “failing.”

Against the backdrop of COVID-19, climate change, and last year’s attack on the U.S. Capitol… can we blame them?
