POLL: 1 in 5 Americans Can Not Afford to Buy Food
The results of a new poll show that American citizens are still experiencing difficulty in affording food for themselves or their families, a sign which proves that the country’s economy is not on the road to recovery.
A total of 177,662 adults from across the United States responded to the poll conducted by Gallup organization via phone from January through June 2012.
According to the findings, which were made public on August 21, almost one in five Americans in 15 states say they had trouble buying food at least once during the past 12 months.
