Don't tell 20-year-old Nestor Aguilera he can't effect change in politics.It's a change from a past survey that comes after a school shooting in Florida that elevated the voices of high school students in American politics, and five months before Americans will decide whether Trump's Republican Party will maintain control of Congress for another two years.A slim majority, 54 percent, of people ages 15 to 34 – a group that is typically the least likely to vote – continue to believe they have little or no effect on government.The poll found that 48 percent now think they can have at least some effect on the government, after just 33 percent felt that way in March.There's also an uptick in the number of young people who say politicians care what they think: 34 percent of 15 to 34-year-olds report that elected officials care at least a moderate amount about what they think, while just 25 percent said so two months ago.
