Catholics strongly disapprove of the job President Obama is doing as the debate continues over his administration’s new policy forcing Catholic institutions to pay for contraception they morally oppose, according to a new Rasmussen Reports survey.
While the president’s overall job approval ratings have improved over the past couple of months, they have remained steady among Catholics.
The national telephone survey finds that 59 percent of likely Catholic voters nationwide at least somewhat disapprove of the president’s job performance, while 40 percent at least somewhat approve. But the passion is on the side of those who don’t like the job he’s doing: 44 percent strongly disapprove versus 19 percent who strongly approve.
The survey of 3,500 likely voters was conducted February 6-12. The margin of error is +/- 2 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.
