John Zogby's presentation at NCR Washington Briefing

John Zogby, the president and CEO of Zogby International, the global polling company, presented the results of his company's latest survey of American Catholics' beliefs and attitudes today during a lunch time presentation to participants of "Washington Briefing for the Nation’s Catholic Community," cosponsored by Trinity Washington University and National Catholic Reporter.

Some results focusing on evaluations of the handling of clergy sex abuse by Pope Benedict XVI and the U.S. bishops were released yesterday (see Zogby Poll: US Catholics say pope should not resign).

Zogby's presentation today covered findings about Catholics' political opinions (including President Obama's approval rating, likelihood of voting Republican or Democrat), patterns of voting and values, and opinions on immigration and health care reform.
