March 17, 2021

Almost half of Democratic voters think the city isn’t building enough housing, according to a new poll commissioned by the Citizens Housing & Planning Council, which also revealed that a significant portion of them have experienced homelessness.

Key takeaways: Surveying 1,500 registered Democrats in New York City earlier this year, polling firm On Cue Analytics found a majority of respondents ranked housing affordability and homelessness among the biggest concerns facing the city. Forty-seven percent said the city needs to increase its housing supply, according to the survey, which was shared with POLITICO in advance of a CHPC briefing for mayoral candidates the nonprofit advocacy group is holding Wednesday.
