Polls show majority of young people believe 'American Dream' can't be achieved

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It seems most Americans think the American dream is out of reach.

According to a new CNN money poll, nearly 60 percent of people think it's impossible to achieve. The younger people are, the worse their outlook.

Among those surveyed who are between 18 to 34 years old, 63 percent say the American dream is impossible, and only 34 percent of people polled said most children in the U.S. will be better off than their parents.
