Given that we are objectively and measurably safer from crime than were were three to five years ago, why do so many people feel less safe?

Without denying your overall point, I don't think this is the right reading of those poll results. That those 81% did not notice the difference doesn't mean they feel less safe, just that they don't feel more safe. A five percent decrease in crime is significant and meaningful at the city level, but I wouldn't expect people to notice it in their daily lives.
