As the state's Republican Party faces infighting like it hasn't seen in years, we want to hear from Texas college students who identify as conservative about the present and future of their party.

According to the latest Texas Tribune/University of Texas poll, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and House Speaker Joe Straus are less popular than their colleague, Gov. Greg Abbott, among Texas Republicans. Do college students feel the same? Our polling has indicated a disconnect between what older and younger voters feel about our state leaders.

So, we're asking you now: What issues most concern younger conservatives heading into the midterms?
