Just Half Of Californians Believe They Can Afford To Live Here, Poll Finds

Who can afford to live in California?

A newly released Quinnipiac University poll found that just slightly more than half, or 53 percent, of Californians believe they can afford to live in the Golden State.

Surveyors spoke to 1,125 California voters between July 10-15, with a margin of error of 3.9 percentage points.

Pollsters found that the perception of California as unaffordable was especially high among people 18 to 34, at 58 percent, and 35 to 49, at 53 percent.

By contrast, 58 percent of people 50 to 64 believe the state is affordable. Those 65 and older, at 68 percent, were most likely to say the state’s cost of living is reasonable.

Most Californians, 78 percent, believe the state has a housing crisis. That number includes both renters and homeowners.
