Poll: Most Americans Want Religion Out of Politics

(CN) – Americans acknowledge that religious institutions are losing influence in public life, but still believe they do more good than harm overall, the Pew Research Center reported Friday. Most, however, want such institutions to avoid endorsing political candidates.

In a survey of 6,364 adults from March 18 to April 1, researchers found that 63% felt that churches and other religious institutions should “keep out of political matters” generally. Seventy-six percent felt that churches should not endorse political candidates.
