From Crux Now:
ROME – Five years into his papacy, Francis continues to enjoy enviously high polling numbers of public support, with new survey results showing that over 84 percent of American Catholics approve of him.
According to new data from Saint Leo University Polling Institute, which conducts regular online polling on the pontiff, Francis’ overall approval ratings among Americans has increased to 68.7 percent, up from 65.6 percent in February and 62.9 percent in November 2017. Dr. Marc Pugliese, associate professor of religion and theology at Saint Leo University, attributes the increase to the possibility of the amount of media attention given to Francis around the time of the five year anniversary of his election to office, most notably the recently released Wim Wenders documentary, Pope Francis – A Man of His Word, related coverage on CBS’ 60 Minutes broadcast, and a new CNN special on the papacy.
