Obviously it is because Trump is president. If we are going to give him credit for a bull market don't we also have to give him credit for the homeless problem?
so in other words: more greedy landlords who refuse to lower the rent and don't mind walking by homeless people in tents on their way to their lucrative jobs... (or their trip to doggy psychologist...)Cost of living. New York and coastal California have higher a cost of living than almost anywhere in the US. DC has also seen a large jump in cost of living.
No, that isn't even close to what I am saying. The taxes and costs to maintain property in those areas are also quite expensive, and adds to the rent costs and housing costs. Its a problem without an easy solution and we know throwing money at it has not worked.so in other words: more greedy landlords who refuse to lower the rent and don't mind walking by homeless people in tents on their way to their lucrative jobs...

I don't think any of this answers the Q of why so many are homeless in THOSE states as opposed to other states..Cost of living, which directly defeats the appeal of cities which is that they have more jobs, which is incidentally one of the driving reasons for why people leave rural towns in the first place.
Nobody goes to Nowhere, Idaho for a job, but people in Nowhere, Idaho will definitely go to Los Angeles in search of a job.
There's also a massive and ongoing program in busing homeless people to other locations in order to "solve" their own homeless problem, which of course creates its own cluster**** when trying to determine the root cause and origin of homelessness.
Why do red states have so many living in poverty? The problem with your premise is that you are assuming that people who are homeless just stay put. They don't. They go where there are opportunities. They go where they can get help. They go where it is warm. They go to places they've dreamed of living. Beach bum is a lot better than the rarely glamorized ice bums. Go talk to a lot of the homeless in NY and California and you will find a **** load of people who left the midwest and the south in hopes of a future because there is none where they left. These "left" cities are largely cleaning up the mess made by the people fleeing the red states.
Homeless and unemployed people flock to cities because they're most likely to have jobs that rural towns don't. And blue states typically have the largest cities due to having larger economies, so those will have even more job-seeking appeal.I don't think any of this answers the Q of why so many are homeless in THOSE states as opposed to other states..
