Almost two-thirds of Americans believe that crime is a serious issue in the U.S.
This is according to the results of a new Gallup poll released on Thursday.
63 percent of respondents say that crime in the U.S. is either “extremely” or a “very” serious problem.
Across the nation, more than three-quarters of respondents believe that crime has gone up.
Meanwhile, a fifth of those polled say that someone in their household was a victim of a crime.
