Nearly half of young millennials believe the American Dream is dead: Survey

The Institute of Politics at Harvard, in a national survey, asked 18-to-29-year-old “millennials” a basic question about what has driven their country for two centuries: “It is disturbing that about half of the largest generation in America doesn’t believe the American Dream is there for them personally: That frustration, I think, is tied into a government they don’t trust and they don’t think is working for them,” John Della Volpe, Institute of Politics polling director, told Bloomberg News. An income inequality has grown in the last four decades, eroding the great American middle class which fueled the American Dream, the optimism that life in this country was, is and would continue to grow better.
