The 2008 Obama campaign was extremely successful at driving young and first time voters to the polls. The campaign was praised for getting throngs of young people engaged in politics and eager to volunteer time. But now, as the economy continues to struggle, many young voters say they have lost some of that passion. So are young voters still engaged? Or have they abandoned the president and politics in general? We talk with three young Nevada voters about their feelings on politics and issues leading up to the 2012 election.
