Survey: 68% Feel They Have Achieved or Will Achieve to American Dream - With a Little Help

The attached Article from HuffPost discusses the findings from a recent survey of Americans.

As the article discusses, statistics logically must be more rooted in our collective belief in the American dream than on present economic conditions.  Yet, just as a person's optimistic views on recovery from a serious health condition are all important, so too is our belief in econmic recovery. 

What do the people want?  Roughly 80% want the Government to take a more active role in stimulating job growth and opportunities.  I am not surprised and, as I suggested in a post earlier this morning (discussing the plight of the unemployed 25-54 year-old male American), tend to agree with that sentiment.
