    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 86% of American Adults consider homelessness a serious problem in America, with 48% who describe it as Very Serious. Just 11% say homelessness is a not very or Not At All Serious problem. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
