Voters Balk At $2.5 Trillion ‘Housing for All’ Plan

Most voters agree there’s a housing shortage in America but stop short of embracing Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders’ $2.5 trillion plan to guarantee housing for all.

Fifty-six percent (56%) of Likely U.S. Voters think there is a shortage of safe and affordable housing in America today. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 28% disagree, but 16% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
