Leon Ridenour walks to a Wal-Mart for his evening shift as a greeter.

That’s the percentage of adults who aren’t retired and who say they will have enough money to live “comfortably” when they do, according to a Gallup poll that measured the statistic as a new low.

About 55 percent of respondents to the survey, which was conducted April 9-12, said they won’t have enough money to live comfortably.

The figure for non-retirees is down 21 points from a decade ago and 15 points from early 2007, before a deep recession hit.

It was 42 percent in early 2011.
