Poll Shows Americans Want More Religion In Politics


According to a report released by the Pew Research Center this week, nearly half of the American public who were surveyed believe that religious institutions should have a more vocal place in U.S. political discourse.  

The center surveyed 2,000 people on this topic, 59% of whom identified themselves as Republicans, with 42% self-identifying as Democrats.  

These findings are juxtaposed to a study in 2010, where results showed that only 43% of people surveyed believed that religious institutions needed a more public place in politics.  

According to this New Orleans Times-Picayune article, nearly 75% of those surveyed said they believe religious influence is on the decline in the American political sphere and 56% of these believe that decline is a negative thing.  

On the whole, it seems that Americans want more faith-oriented voices influencing public spheres.
