Nearly half of Americans say they have more opportunity to get ahead than their parents did, and nearly three quarters say they expect to reach financial security and comfort in their lifetimes, according to a new report.

The Allstate Corporation, Northfield Township, Ill. (NYSE: ALL), unveiled this finding in the 14th quarterly Allstate-National Journal Heartland Monitor Poll of 1,250 adults ages 18 and older. The survey explores perceptions of upward mobility among Americans and sheds new light on the challenges and obstacles they face in their continued efforts to get ahead.
