Americans are more concerned about drug addiction and the affordability of college now than they were two years ago. That's according to a new study by the Pew Research Center.
In fact, the percentage of Americans who thought drug addiction was a "very big problem" has grown from 56% in 2016 to a current tally of 68%. Sixty-three percent of Americans are concerned about the affordability of college now, compared to 52% two years ago.
Similarly, nearly half of Americans said they were concerned about job opportunities in 2016, and that's down to 25% today. The news is also improving when it comes to terrorism. While 53% labeled terrorism as a very big problem in 2016, only 35% do so now.
