A new poll finds young American adults are worried about the future of the country.

The Institute of Politics at the Harvard Kennedy School surveyed about two thousand adults aged 18 to 29 at the end of October, beginning of November.

55 percent of respondents said they were fearful about America's future. That's compared to 44 percent who were hopeful.

A majority of respondents also don't believe America is a functioning democracy. 52 percent said it is in trouble or has failed altogether.

This is a shift from earlier in the year, when most young adults said they were more hopeful.

When it comes to president Biden's agenda... young adults said he should prioritize the economy, bringing the country together, and improving health care.
