Epoch Times | Oct. 28, 2022

The percentage of Americans who think local crime is getting worse hit the highest level in five decades, according to a Gallup poll released on Oct. 28.

A record 56 percent of respondents said they believe there is more crime locally now that there was a year ago.

The Oct. 3-20 random-sample survey of 1,009 adults living in all 50 states and the District of Columbia also found that concern about being a victim of crime has sharply increased since 2021.
