Many American Catholics approve of how Pope Francis, who is about to celebrate his first Christmas Mass, is leading the church, a new poll said Tuesday.
A CNN/ORC International poll said 88 percent approved of the way Pope Francis is handling the 1.2 billion-member church, and two-thirds agree on the amount of attention he’s spending on moral issues.
“By comparison, three-quarters of American Catholics approved of how Pope John Paul II was leading the church in 1994; that number rose to 84% in 1999 and dipped to 64% in 2003, at the height of the church’s sexual abuse crisis,” CNN reported.
The poll was conducted from Dec. 16 to 19, as 1,035 adults nationwide were questioned by telephone, CNN said. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
