Nov. 24, 2023 12:01 am ET

The American dream– the proposal that anybody who strives can get ahead, despite their background– has actually slipped out of reach in the minds of lots of Americans.

Just 36% of citizens in a brand-new Wall Street Journal/NORC study stated the American dream still applies, significantly less than the 53% who stated so in 2012 and 48% in 2016 in comparable studies of grownups by another pollster. When a Wall Street Journal survey in 2015 asked whether individuals who strive were most likely to get ahead in this nation, some 68% stated yes– almost two times the share as in the brand-new survey.
