Is the American Dream out of reach? Most Americans think so. According to a new C-N-N Money/O-R-C poll, nearly 60 percent of people think the dream is impossible to achieve. And the younger people are, the worse their outlook. Among people ages 18 to 34, 63 percent say it's impossible. And there isn't much hope for anyone even younger. Only 34 percent said most children in the U.S. will be better off than their parents.
