CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis remains popular among American Catholics, according to a new Pew Forum survey. But a growing minority is troubled by his leadership.
The Pew survey found that 84% of American Catholics have a favorable view of the Pope: a number essentially unchanged from the 85% who took that view four years ago. However, the number reporting an unfavorable view grew from 4 to 9%. 58% of respondents said that Pope Francis is making positive changes—down from 69% four years ago. The numbers of those who said the Pontiff is making changes for the worse rose (from 3 to 7%), as did those who see no major change (17-26%).
