Newly released polling data shows that Americans feel the billions of dollars spent to address homelessness in the U.S. has not worked.


Rasmussen Reports released the data, which found that the vast majority of Americans see homelessness as an unaddressed problem.

“Despite billions of dollars in federal spending to help the homeless, most Americans believe the problem has gotten worse,” Rasmussen said. “The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 92% of American Adults believe homelessness is a serious problem in America, including 65% who say the problem is Very Serious. Only six percent (6%) don’t think the homeless problem is serious.”

In some cities like San Francisco, homelessness has become rampant with encampments filling sidewalks.

In fact, a 2008 video of California Gov. Gavin Newsom vowing to end homelessness in a decade has drawn attention.

All that has pushed Americans to say the problem is getting worse.

“Perception of the problem has increased since February 2021, when 55% said the homeless problem was Very Serious,” Rasmussen said.
