With nearly 60,000 people homeless across LA County, it continues to be a top issue for many people. A new poll commissioned by the LA Times and the LA Business Council Institute found that 95% of the 901 people surveyed, identified homelessness as a serious or very serious problem. Traffic congestion (88%) and housing affordability (85%) came in second and third.
