Hope Isn't Floating--it is Sinking

Americans are now less convinced than they have been at any time during the Obama presidency, that it is still possible for anyone in this country to work their way out of poverty.

Here's the numbers. And we would like to know what our readers think. Please weigh in on our survey.

In early March 2009, as President Bush left office, 56% said it was possible for anyone to work their way out of poverty, and that was following years of negative press toward the President and his policies on nearly every front.

Barack Obama ran on "Hope" and "Change" and little else. The press swooned and the public wept and sang, and continue to do so, but now things have changed, and not as promised.

Now only 44% believe it's possible to work your way out of poverty, 38% say they still think its possible, but 18% are not sure.

I have linked the Rasmussen Survey here.

I would like to know how you feel, if America continues with the same policies in place.
