70. There are plenty of Americans who are unexplainably filthy.

And I don't believe the behavior is exclusive to any one economic or ethnic group, or age category, or gender identity.
Since I prefer to live in a clean and tidy environment, I clean up the messes I make. But many people don't.
Have you seen "Hoarders"? All of those featured have some resources. They have a place to live and enough money to buy and hoard enough junk to make their homes uninhabitable. I don't mean to suggest that all hoarders are personally filthy, and on the show none of them appear dirty, but those who hoard pets and those whose hoards are homes to vermin have become accustomed to filthy environments. They have to smell bad. Their bathrooms are in worse condition than the public restrooms described above. People who live in these conditions might leave such conditions behind in public spots?
One can think that angry people are responsible for creating these messes, and perhaps that explains some of the behavior (evidently teenaged girls are particularly hard on public restrooms) but I suspect that mental illness is at the root of most of this sort of filthy and unclean behavior.
People who function normally just don't do that.
