This poll, the last of two fielded February 2013, is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicits public opinion on a range of political and social issues. Respondents were asked for their opinions on the Catholic Church, as well as a variety of questions regarding the pope, and the selection of the new pope. More specifically, respondents were asked whether the Catholic Church is "in touch", for their opinions on women becoming priests, priests getting married, and birth control, abortion, and sex abuse in the Church. Respondents were also asked about religious freedom in the United States, health care policies in relation to religious freedom, the Vatican's investigation of nuns in the United States, their personal monetary contributions to the Church, and church attendance. Additional topics included illegal immigration, the death penalty, and same-sex marriage. Demographic information includes sex, age, race, marital status, education, household income, type of residential area (e.g. urban or rural), political party affiliation, political philosophy, religious preferences, and whether respondents thought of themselves as born again Christians.
