LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The number of Southern Californians who say the cost
of living here is "unbearable" increased from 50% to 59% in five months.

According to a SurveyUSA poll conducted exclusively for ABC7, the percent
who people who call costs a "major problem" is up from 51% to 57%, and an
increasing number of Southern Californians say that "pinching pennies" is
pointless. Overall, the survey finds a number of key, quality-of-life
indicators have deteriorated just in the past five months since SurveyUSA
last measured sentiment in May 2019.

Those who describe the cost of living in Southern California as a "crisis"
are twice as likely to self-describe as "poor" rather than "working
class," and four times more likely to describe as "poor" over "middle
class."

Watch ABC7 next week for special coverage on the cost of living in
Southern California and how you can save money.

A majority of Southern Californians (53%) say they are stressed about the
cost of living. This ranges from 73% of those who say they are falling
behind financially to just 27% of those who say they are prospering here
financially.

According to the poll, 25% say they are angry about the cost of living,
24% say they feel trapped by the cost of living, 24% say they feel sad and
20% feel hopeless.

Gas prices were a significant concern for people: 43% say that higher
gasoline prices are a hardship that causes families to spend less on other
things. Another 13% say that higher gasoline prices are "crushing," making
it impossible for them to afford other essentials that they must have.
However, the number of Angelenos who say they cannot afford to fill their
gas tank all the way up is unchanged in the tracking data.

Will the cost of living in Southern California drive people to move away?
Twenty-nine percent say they never thought about living somewhere else,
and now they do.

About: SurveyUSA interviewed 500 adults from the Los Angeles TV viewing
area mid-May 2019 and again mid October 2019. Many of the May 2019
questions were re-asked verbatim. Other, new questions were added in
October. The research was conducted online.

No collusion - Special Counsel Robert Swan Mueller III, March 2019.

Donald J. Trump, 304 electoral votes to 227, defeated compulsive liar in
denial Hillary Rodham Clinton on December 19th, 2016. The clown car
parade of the democrat party ran out of gas and got run over by a Trump
truck.

Congratulations President Trump. Thank you for cleaning up the disaster
of the Obama presidency.

The Obama-led Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS)
approved Uranium One in fall 2010. With a little luck, we'll see
compulsive liar Hillary Clinton in jail before she dies.

Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp.

Obama increased total debt from $10 trillion to $20 trillion in the eight
years he was in office, and sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood queer
liberal democrat donors.
