WASHINGTON (AP) - Young adults between 18 and 29 are anxious about being able to pay for their educational, housing and health care needs. Those are findings from a new poll that suggests many worry they will never be better off than their parents.
The poll by Harvard's Institute of Politics found that six out of 10 of those surveyed worry they may not meet their current bills and obligations. Nearly half of those attending college wonder whether they will be able to afford to stay in school. And more than eight out of 10 said they expect difficulty finding a job after graduation.
Politically, young Republicans are more motivated to vote in the 2010 election than those who described themselves as Democrats. A majority approves of President Barack Obama, but not his handling of top issues.
