"Americans are more likely now than at any time over the past five decades to say there is more
crime in their local area than there was a year ago. The 56% of U.S. adults who report an increase in crime where they live marks a five-percentage-point uptick since last year and is
the highest by two points in Gallup's trend dating back to 1972."
