New poll shows most Americans have high regard for Pope Benedict XVI

Well, what do you know. This Catholic survey's findings run directly contrary to what the secular mainstream media would have you believe. MSMS has of late been unrelenting in its negative coverage of Pope Benedict XVI, which in itself is nothing surprising,  since the Pope is unrelenting in his proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ to the world — a message that the world simply does not want to hear. No matter. The pope will continue speaking the Truth, and the MSM will continue doing what it can to obscure, spin, ridicule, and obfuscate his message. And in the meantime, at least if this poll is an accurrate indicator, most Americans still have an openeness to the Pope — at least for now.

Americans overall and American Catholics in particular hold Pope Benedict XVI in high regard, according to a Marist College poll conducted in partnership with the Knights of Columbus.

Sixty percent of Americans reported they have either a favorable or very favorable impression of the pontiff while 76 percent of Catholics hold the same view, the telephone poll of 2,078 people found.

At the same time, 20 percent of Americans and 11 percent of Catholics told interviewers they have an unfavorable or very unfavorable view of Pope Benedict.
