L.A. Times: Los Angeles Voters Want More Housing but Worry It Won’t Help Them, Poll Finds

May 9, 2024

A strong majority of Los Angeles voters support building more housing across the city but are skeptical that it will benefit them or ease cost pressures in their neighborhood, a new poll has found.

The mix of messages offers both promise and pitfalls for policymakers hoping to better the city’s long-standing housing challenges by promoting new growth and speedier construction of low-income development. More than anything, the findings show Angelenos hungry for solutions to a housing problem that is leading many to consider leaving the city, said Mark DiCamillo, poll director at UC Berkeley’s Institute of Governmental Studies who reviewed the survey on the Times’ behalf.
