A Ban On Evictions, Foreclosures And Repossessions

Three other policies—a ban on evictions, foreclosures, and repossessions during the pandemic; suspending rent payments for business and tenants affected by the crisis and forgiving the mortgages of affected landlords; and suspending rents of affected businesses for ninety days—all enjoy margins of support over 60 points.

A policy to give families $2,000/month payments for adults and $1,000/month payments for children, a policy to suspend all business and credit payments, and a policy to suspend commercial rent payments for businesses are three policies that voters support by 50 points or more.

Voters support the four other policies we tested—including suspending work requirements for public housing—by 30 points or more. From these results, one thing is abundantly clear: Voters want dramatic action for this dire economic situation.
