Voters are split mostly along party lines regarding how genuinely “religious” President Joe Biden actually is despite his professed Roman Catholic faith, according to the results of a recent poll released last week.
The Pew Research Center asked 12,055 Americans between March 1 and March 7 their views on a wide range of questions about the religious faith of Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
Biden’s faith especially has been a point of contention as several high-ranking Catholic clergy have called for the Church to discipline him for his abortion views by denying him Holy Communion.
Fifty-eight percent of respondents were able to correctly identify that Biden is a Roman Catholic. He is only the second Catholic president, after former President John F. Kennedy. Thirty-one percent were unsure of his faith, while 6% identified him as Protestant, 3% said he was atheist, and 1% said he adheres to an “other religion” not listed. An additional 1% said his religion is “something else.”
