    A majority of Catholics disapprove of President Joe Biden's job performance, polling released Friday found.

    Most Catholics surveyed in an Eternal Word Television News (ETWN)/RealClear Opinion Research poll believe that the United States is not on the right track and have weighty concerns about attacks on churches and pregnancy centers as well as gender ideology. The poll found that 59% of Catholics believe the U.S. is on the wrong track - a number that includes 68% of white Catholics and 45% of Latino Catholics.

    Catholics are also less likely to vote for politicians who stand for abortion up until birth, according to the poll, which was completed just days before Roe v. Wade was overturned. The poll surveyed 1,757 likely Catholic voters online between June 15 and June 23 with a confidence interval of 2.58 percentage points at the 95% confidence level.

    Biden has often been described by the media and by his administration as a "devout Catholic," though he heads the most pro-abortion administration in United States history. The Catholic Church teaches that abortion is murder and a "crime against human life."

    The EWTN/RealClear Opinion poll found that 65% of Catholics acknowledged that abortion conflicts with Catholic teaching, compared to 25% who believed there wasn't any conflict.

    "Overall, Catholic voters today are a far cry from the Democratic voting bloc that helped propel John F. Kennedy, the first and only Roman Catholic to serve as president, to the White House in 1960," RealClearPolitics White House and National Political Correspondent Susan Crabtree noted in an analysis of the polling. "In fact, the political ideology of the 1,757 surveyed skews more conservative or lean conservative than liberal or lean liberal by a margin of 40% to 34%. More voters identified as Democrat (42%) than Republican (38%), but 20% considered themselves independent or unaffiliated with either party."

    "Despite Catholic voters' split political affiliations, the group remains crucial because there are so many of them," she added. "More than one in five voters identifies as Catholic, although they are difficult to typecast, according to John Della Volpe, director of the RealClear survey. This may explain the lack of clear advantage for either party ahead of the midterms, but it doesn't mean Catholics as a whole don't have strong feelings about political issues right now."

    Over half of Catholics polled (53%) view Biden unfavorably, according to the poll, while 45% of Catholics view him favorably - a number that has dropped since 2020 when an EWTN/RealClear poll found that 52% of Catholics supported him.

    Former President Donald Trump polled slightly better with Catholics; the survey found that 49% of Catholics view Trump favorably, while another 49% view him unfavorably.

    But white and non-white voters view Biden very differently: while 36% of white Catholics view him favorably, 59% of Hispanic Catholics and 72% of black Catholics view him favorably.

    And the majority of those Catholics who attend mass weekly have an unfavorable view of the president at 55% (compared to 43% favorability), Dr. Matthew Bunson, executive editor of EWTN News, said on a call with reporters.

    "What we have found is that from our studies at mass attendance, it is really a significant determiner of how they're going to vote," Bunson told The Daily Wire, noting that Latino Catholics are significantly holding up the president's favorable rating with Catholics.

    The EWTN/RealClearOpinion polling comes on the heels of multiple polls showing that a large swath of Americans think neither Trump nor Biden should run for office again in 2024 - and that as Democrats cater to the increasingly radical demands of progressive, "upscale voters," Republicans are gaining momentum with working-class people heading into the midterms.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan yet to be revealed to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
