California voters say homelessness No. 1 issue in 2020

As California’s homeless problem spreads throughout the state and worsens, a majority of voters say it has become their number one issue heading into the 2020 presidential primaries in March.

As reported by the Sacramento Bee, a plurality of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents who are most likely to vote in the March 3 primary agree that homelessness has become their most important issue.

They want to see Gov. Gavin Newsom and state lawmakers, in which Democrats have a super majority, to work on fixing the problem this year.



Twenty-one percent of Democrats and Independents said it was their primary issue of concern, while 29 percent of Republicans said so.

The next highest priorities for likely Democratic voters are housing affordability and the environment, the paper reported.

Meanwhile, Republicans said they were more concerned about illegal immigration and high taxes.

“Health care has become a lesser focus for Democrats, according to the poll,” the paper reported further.

More than 150,000 California residents are homeless, according to the latest counts.




Priorities for Californians stand in stark contrast to priorities voiced by voters in the rest of the country.

According to a Gallup poll released earlier this week, Democrats nationwide consider health care the most important issue, which is closely followed by gun control and climate change.

Overall, “healthcare, national security, gun policy, education and the economy” were cited as “extremely important” by over 30 percent of adults in the poll.

That said, homelessness is unique to California. As Breitbart News reported last month, the state’s 16.4 percent increase in homelessness is “entirely” responsible for the nation’s overall 2.7 percent increase, according to federal statistics.

  1. The number one problem in California is not homelessness; it is the Democratically controlled cities of Los Angeles (Garcetti and LA City Council) and Pelosi (San Francisco) and the state government (Newsome) which are

  2. Promiscuous in granting sanctuary to illegals, medical to illegals, welfare to illegals and inviting grifters from other states and countries who choose to game the system

  3. We know homelessness is skyrocketing here in mexifornia. And numbnuts newsome is going to throw yet more millions at the problem using the same failed strategies. In other words; nobody in mexifornia has any idea how ti fix the problem, yet the answer is so obvious.

  4. You deserve the representatives you vote for. Period. Fix it or sit down and STFU. The ball is in your court.

    • Outlaw straws in restaurants. If a waitress gives you one without you asking for it, she could personally get a $1,000 fine.
