MORE LOWER INCOME AMERICANS WORRY ABOUT HUNGER



Over the past two years, an average of 67% of lower-income U.S. adults, up from 51% from 2010-2011, have worried "a great deal" about the problem of hunger and homelessness in the country, that’s up significantly (51%) in 2010-11. Concern has also increased among middle- and upper-income Americans, but they still worry far less than do lower-income Americans. Overall, 47% of Americans now worry about hunger and homelessness "a great deal," according to a March Gallup poll. Concern about hunger and homelessness now ranks as high as, or higher than, concern about most other issues Gallup tested in its annual survey.
