Proposition HHH failing to create affordable units for homeless in SoCal, polls says

A majority of Southern California residents say a measure aimed at creating housing for the homeless is failing, according to an exclusive Eyewitness News poll.

Proposition HHH was passed by Los Angeles voters three years ago, setting aside $1.2 billion for the creation of homeless housing.

The poll, conducted by Survey USA, found a quarter of participants think the plan is succeeding, although just 6 percent think it's a complete success.
