— -- The 2016 presidential race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump has dredged up everything from name calling to accusations of bullying, sexual assault and internet hacking.

When the two presidential candidates met for the third and final presidential debate in Las Vegas, it was not just voters watching, but also young kids trying to engage in the democratic process.

Good Morning America” co-anchor Michael Strahan sat down with a group of young kids this week at the Ethical Culture Fieldston School in New York City to talk about what they are seeing unfold in the presidential race.

The fourth-grade students engaged in a frank conversation with Strahan on the issues they think should be at the forefront of this election. The students also delivered important reminders on the kind of behavior (like hand shaking) and good sportsmanship the presidential candidates should be modeling.

Watch the videos for the students' take on politics today.
