According to a new poll from UC Berkeley's Institute of Governmental Studies, more than half of California voters say the cost of housing is so bad that they're thinking about leaving the state.

Poll director Mark DiCamillo said:

“It’s an extremely serious problem. People are being forced to consider moving because of the rising cost of housing – that’s pretty prevalent all over the state.”

The poll also revealed that 60% of the electorate supports rent control.

56% of votes said they've considered moving. Out of that, 1 in 4 said they'd relocate out of state if they did move.

48% said they consider the problem of housing affordability to be "extremely serious."

In Los Angeles County 68% of voters said they support stronger limits on rent increases, and 63% in the Bay Area said the same thing.
