SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — As San Francisco tries to bounce back from the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, crime and homelessness now rank among the highest levels of concerns among local residents, many who are contemplating relocating, according to a new poll.
The poll was released by the SF Chamber of Commerce and based on feedback from more than 500 San Francisco residents who are registered to vote.

“It appears to be dawning on some Democrats in Washington that it is not a good idea politically to be soft on crime during a crime wave — especially when their own positions helped spark the crime wave. . . . The short version is that Democrats are beginning to understand that the ugly anti-police actions and rhetoric some of them engaged in after the death of George Floyd last year helped cause an increase in violent crime, an increase in suffering, an increase in fear — and now, political blowback. But here’s the kicker: Some of those very same Democrats who get the message are afraid to talk about it in public.”
