In recent days there has been interest in a question that DHM Research asked in the Portland Business Alliance’s annual Jobs & Economy Survey. The question asked voters in the Portland metro region if they support or oppose requiring people who are currently living outside to sleep in shelters or designated camping locations. PBA previously reported that 83% of voters in the region said that they support this requirement.
Several people have reached out to DHM Research asking if opinions about this differ across the region and by demographic. As the chart below shows, there is wide support for this requirement, including by area, political party, age, race, and gender.
