National Catholic Register, Matthew Bunson: WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden continues to face challenges in galvanizing support among Catholic voters as the country prepares for the 2022 midterm elections, according to the findings of a new EWTN News/RealClear Opinion Research poll, even as the president increasingly struggles with Hispanic Catholics and as Catholic voters rank inflation and the economy as the most critical issues facing the country.
The second of three EWTN News/RealClear Opinion Research polls planned for the 2022 election, surveying 1,581 Catholic voters, was conducted from Sept. 12 to 19. The poll has a margin of error of 2.5%.
When asked how they feel Biden is handling his job as president, nearly 52% of Catholic voters said they either disapproved (5%) or strongly disapproved (47%); 46% either approved (32%) or strongly approved (14%).
Notably, the strong disapproval number was significantly higher than strong approval. Only 2% of voters had no opinion. Report is here.
