Despite an anemic housing market which has been locked in a downward spiral since the real estate bubble burst in 2007, homeownership still remains a defining element of the American dream, according to a New York Times/CBS poll

The poll, whose results were reported by The New York Times today, found that 9 out of 10 Americans believe that homeownership is an important part of the American Dream. It also indicated that Americans give priority to homeownership over other economic issues. Forty-five percent of respondents say that the government should be doing more to bolster the housing market, a higher percentage of people than those who support job relief, according to the poll.
