(CNN / Worthy News)– The American Dream is impossible to achieve in this country. So say nearly 6 in 10 people who responded to CNNMoney's American Dream Poll, conducted by ORC International. They feel the dream — however they define it — is out of reach.

Young adults, age 18 to 34, are most likely to feel the dream is unattainable, with 63% saying it's impossible. This age group has suffered in the wake of the Great Recession, finding it hard to get good jobs.

One thought on “60% of Americans Believe the 'American Dream' is Out of Reach

  1. But if a conservative publication had done the same survey I bet 60% of the respondents would have said it WAS attainable. It is all just perception. I believe it is within reach if you got the grit.
