CWN Editor's Note: A new poll of US Catholics has found that most believe President Biden should not run for re-election in 2024, and an even larger majority believe former President Trump should not run again.

The EWTN poll also found that 52% of Catholic voters disapproved of Biden’s performance in office, with the disapproval much higher—75%—among those who attend Mass regularly.

The poll showed signs of danger for the Democratic Party, with Catholics—traditionally a “swing” constituency—preferring Republican candidates by a 49-45 margin. Also, the survey showed a significant decline in support for Democrats among Hispanic Catholics.

    Ya gotta follow through with a click because the CNA article goes way beyond the presidential candidate headline. It's a real mixed bag of good and bad news.
