tonight we are listening to millenial voters, many of them voting for the first time. clinton has a 28-point lead among them. in a poll by harvard's institute of politics. more than half say they're fearful about the future. elaine quijano gathered a group, 18 to 34 from 12 states. they met at the youtube space in new york city for the campaign 2016 series, closing arguments. >> i am a very proud conservative, i don't think donald trump represents the republican party. >> i'm 20 years old. unapologetic, deplorable trump supporter. >> i'm be voting gary johnson. >> i'm 27, i'm with her. >> honestly all i know i'm not with her, i don't support hillary clinton. >> i'm a trump supporter they
think i'm a racist, we jump to conclusions a trump supporter is a bad uneducated person. >> he is bombastic and says stuff i 100% do not agree with. at the same time i don't want to support a liar. >> how many of you here have had college debt or you will soon have college debt student debt? >> by the time i am finished with my education i am going to have over $200,000 in debt. in order to get a better career, you're forced into higher education, forced into this debt. i don't think really either candidate has posed a good enough stance. >> all right. i want to turn to another topic here, the issue of civil rights. recent poll found that 85% of young african-americans and 72% of hispanics, believe their race is under attack in the u.s. i wonder why do you think that is?
>> this particular topic is something that is really dear to my heart. because i was robbed and shot in my head. and if that wasn't enough, i look up and i was staring down the barrel of another gun. and this time it wasn't the barrel of a gun from someone that was trying to rob me. this time looking down the barrel of the police. >> ryan quatrimani, you are the son of a former police officer is that right? >> actually recently retired. i think there are bad police officers. you know there is plenty of corrupt police officers. but i think, obama hasn't done a decent job at helping the african-american communities. i think hillary clinton is part of that. but i do support our police. >> earlier comment about police officers, you know versus the black lives matter, african-american community. one is a choice, you have a choice to be a cop. you sign that. you go through training for that. ain't no choice being black. trump has normalized this talk and put a lot of lives in tan danger.
>> to say trump tore our country apart at the seams and created this racial division. no way. president obama was the one in the white house for eight years, race relations have been worse than ever in this country. let's look at who is in office, an african-american man who has torn apart this country. we need to look at that. >> to say that race relations have gotten as bad as they have ever been under president obama shows a lack of historical depth. america is built on racial division. and donald trump's rhetoric, this otherism. builds into that narrative that has long been the narrative of american society. while there were passionate disagreements, one issue united this group. debt. many told me that they can't repay their student loans which means they're putting off decisions like buying a house or starting a family. scott they're looking for answers from these candidates. >> elaine quijano listening to the voters tonight. elaine, thank you. more of elaine's fascinating

amount they gave. >> once the law firm knew we had the record they didn't deny that this was the case. scott allen the globe spotlight editor. >> hundreds and hundreds of a times a lawyer would dough that money to a candidate or political party and almost immediately be given back the same sum. >> that is correct. if you give a donation and somebody else reimburses you for the donation that is a clear violation of the spirit and the letter of the law at the federal and state levels. >> federal law limits partnerships like the thornton law firm to maximum donation of $2700 per candidate. alleged to have made donations above the limit using a straw donor system using the firm's own money but making it appear it was from individual partners. vivica novak with the center for responsive. >> straw donor reimbursement systems are something both the fec and department of justice take very seriously. and people have gone to jail for this. >> reporter: the spotlight team looked at donations from three
