Is the GOP doing enough to woo young voters? We asked these teenage delegates.

The Republican Party is well aware of the challenges it faces attracting young voters. 

According to Pew Research Center, just 15 percent of millennials identify as conservative.  

The GOP's own assessment in 2012 noted young people were "rolling their eyes at what the party represents." The now-infamous autopsy report laid out a plan to bring young voters and minorities into the fold. 

Jorge Villarreal, a 19-year-old RNC delegate from Texas, says the Republican Party needs to do more to win over voters his age. 

"I think we'll do a lot better with young people four years from now, but I think we'll get slaughtered with young people in November."

Nineteen-year-old Ryder Haag, a delegate from Nevada,  is more optimistic 

"When you look at this convention you do see plenty of young people that are involved, and they are happy to be here."
