A new poll shows the majority of Americans are feeling good about the coming New Year, but not everyone looks back on 2013 so fondly.

The AP-Times Square New Year's Eve poll found 49 percent of Americans believe 2014 will be better for them than this year, 14 percent say it will be worse and 34 percent expect no change.

As for rating the past year for the country overall, opinions are split.

Of those polled, 25 percent say 2013 was better than 2012, while 25 percent say it was worse and 50 percent see no major difference.

However, young people were much more likely to see improvement.
