Nearly 7 in 10 Americans said in a new survey that they are worried they will not have enough money to retire comfortably. The Quinnipiac poll found that 68 percent of American respondents are either very concerned or somewhat concerned that they will not have enough money to “live comfortably during retirement.” Additionally, 33 percent said that they were very concerned about retiring comfortably, 35 percent said they were somewhat concerned, 16 percent said they were not so concerned and 15 percent said they were not concerned at all, according to the poll

I remember reading a few years ago that the average person had saved something like $40K by age 50 "for retirement". Until people put away a serious portion of their salary during working years, they won't be comfortable in retirement. My wife and I put away and invested 25% of our salaries for 35 years, and now are very comfortable in retirement. We didn't buy big homes and fancy new cars. Still driving each car for 10-12 years, I do the service, and modest home. Our Colorado vacation cost $5K, long ago paid for and we built the cabin ourselves with a bit of help from friends to get the roof trusses up. Live frugally, save HARD, and invest wisely....with professional guidance, not stupid stuff like "Money" magazine.

At neart70 and still doing a part time job to supplement, I’ve saved and invested over the years and was doing just fine until 2020. My portfolio has dropped almost 40%. I’m very concerned now as I’m never going to be able to recoup and don’t believe the trend will change anytime soon. They said they wanted our retirement funds and they’re getting them.

Those that have lost a lot of money have either had no professional advisors, or FAR too common, completely incompetent "financial advisors". In none of the downturns in the last 35 years have we ever been down by more than 20% and in most cases back even within 18 months or less. Currently, down about 20%, although recently some of the IRA statements have showed significant gains. Diversification is crucial. We have at least 40 different mutual funds, and each fund has preformed in the top 25% in it's sector for the previous 5 years. If they drop out of the top 25% in that sector, we move the money to a different mutual fund in that sector which is in the top 25% in our annual "rebalancing and adjustment" sessions. Good financial advisors should be doing something like this. If them and find a better one.

Except for the privileged 1%, EVERYONE should be worried. Not just 68%. Secondly, forget comfortable. Having a roof over your head, paying heating bills and eating something more palatable than dog food should be the realistic concern. When the Kenyan said he would change America fundamentally and his mooching wife said Barack will knock us out of our comfort zone, they weren't kidding.

I started my second retirement yesterday. Yes, I'm very worried. I've been preparing for this for 45 years and what seemed like plenty of dough 20 years ago is barely adequate now. We wont want for any necessities, but neither will there be any cruises, vacation homes or Winnebagos. Financial advisor? How do you tell a good one from a bad one? How do I get my money back if they clean me out? How likely is it that they will cost me more than they'll earn me? They talk about financial "products", for which each and every one comes with fees, but it isnt really a product at all. Its just blips on a computer, based on nothing at all. Yeah, I'm worried. But I'm not getting back into the rat race.

There are many people who spend every penny they earn (and more). They're your neighbors who live paycheck to paycheck, and have nothing saved for retirement, but have more cars than people in their family (all luxury of course), huge mortgages, vacation homes, boats, the latest electronic gadgets, never cook a meal at home, take exotic vacations every year, max out their credit cards, and generally act like the good times will roll forever. They should be worried, because we're not approaching a recession, we're in one, and it will get worse before it gets better.

Those 15% who were not concerned at all, are government workers who are getting a very nice pension instead of the crumbs most will receive under social security.

House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan (R-OH) questioned if Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is probing into Hunter Biden’s suspicious art sales to anonymous buyers — drawing a contrast between Bragg’s apparent lack of concern on that subject and his “outrageous” indictment of former President Donald Trump. In total, Hunter has sold about 12 paintings for less than his asking price of $500,000, Washington Post reported. It is unclear how much money Hunter has made from his art, but estimates suggest he has earned at least five times more than the average American artist — all while being a novice painter.

Former President Donald Trump's media machine has released a viral video following his indictment and pending arraignment calling on him to "Keep Fighting." The video begins with majority black and white stills highlighting Trump's trials and tribulations, including his impeachments, accusations of Russian collusion, and Thursday's indictment. "Nothing worth doing ever, ever, ever came easy," the 45th president can be heard saying as the video cuts to clips of his political rise and time in office.
