Young Voters Say Buying a Home, Raising a Family Harder Than Ever

  • Staff Report 

Most voters under 30 believe it’s harder to buy a house, raise a family, and find a good job compared to previous generations, according to a new CBS News poll.

The survey, released Sunday, found that 82% of young respondents think it’s tougher to purchase a home, and 76% say raising a family is more difficult. This comes as the Federal Reserve’s interest rates remain high, making housing less affordable.

Additionally, 70% of young voters say getting a good job is harder now, despite recent strong job numbers. The May jobs report showed payrolls increasing by 272,000 with wage growth rising.

While many young voters feel the older generations have left them with fewer opportunities and a worse environment, 62% still believe they can achieve the “American Dream.” The poll, conducted from June 17-24, included 2,460 adults and had a margin of error of 2.8 percentage points.
