I wonder what the percentages are when you poll only practicing Catholic's? After all, if you don't follow the Church's teachings, then you are not really a Catholic! Just sayin'!

If they allowed ONLY practicing Christians in Church, most of them would be completely empty on Sundays

With the conclave to elect the next pope set for Tuesday, the College of Cardinals has been meeting all week to discuss the priorities of the church and the qualities its new pope must possess. Further, the College of Cardinals must also consider the attitudes of the Catholic people when electing the next pope.

A Quinnipiac University poll released Friday indicates that while 52% of Catholics said the church is moving in the right direction, 52% of those polled also said the church is out of touch with the views of Catholics in America.
