Poll results released yesterday show Catholic presidential candidate John Kerry receiving only 20 percent support among the United States’ 51 million Catholics on issues where he opposes the Church's position.
Zogby International conducted the poll, commissioned by Associated Television News (ATN) and the O’Leary Report.
Only 23 percent of those polled support Kerry on the question of stem-cell research; 23 percent received his support on same-sex unions, 21 percent on school vouchers, and 18 percent on voluntary school prayer.
According to the poll, his support dropped to 6 percent on parental notification, 10 percent on appointing federal judges, 10 percent on same-sex marriage, and 12 percent on protecting the unborn.
