The American Dream


In a new poll from Fox News, 62 percent of registered voters said that if an individual works hard, he or she can still achieve the American Dream of “making a decent living, owning a home, and sending their children to college.” Thirty-four percent said this was not possible. A majority of Republicans (61 percent), Democrats (65 percent), and Independents (57 percent) agreed it was possible. Young people were more optimistic about the prospects than older ones.
