It's no surprise that a pope would be more popular than a U.S. president, but a new poll provides details ahead of Thursday's meeting between Pope Francis and President Obama.

Francis has an 85% approval rating among American Catholics and a 63% approval rating among all Americans, according to the survey by the Saint Leo (Fla.) University Polling Institute.

Obama's overall approval rating is 47%.

Says Saint Leo: "When President Barack Obama meets with Pope Francis Thursday, the president might want to ask the Pope for a few pointers about how to attain a high approval rating."

The two leaders meet at Vatican City.

The Pope is a religious leader that is as humble as they come. For example, he recently did confession publicly.

Compare that to a politician from Chicago that campaigned by stating mistruths like growing the economy, lowering the deficit by half and the famous quotes like "pass this bill and unemployment won't go above 8%", "you can keep your doctor, your plan and my plan will lower costs $2500 per family". Add to this scandals such as the NSA, IRS and Benghazi. Oblamo's humility is non-existent. He hangs with the rich and talks a good game but his results are dismal failures.

The only surprise here is that Oblamo's popularity is above 25%,

We all know barry soetero soebarkah Hussein baraq o bamah has his own following. socialists, black panthers, communists, freeloaders, Marxists, ACA people, illegals, antiConstitutionalists, rioters, shootin' babies in the headers, knockouters, it actually is a long list of folks who love, adore and worship oblamer.
I noticed it's stated Pope Francis 85 percent approval rating is among American Catholics and a 63 percent approval rating among all Americans.
Obama's overall approval rating is 47 percent. 47 percent of who or whom?, whichever is more correct!!!

being a lot of Argies are Nazis and Christina Kirchner is a descendant of Nazis, how can Francis of Argentina be the left of Oblamer? Is Francis a communist?
Not asking anyone in particular but I thought someone in the general audience might know?

At least he's not out there with the pro-lifers. That's a start.

You do have a knack for spectacular idiocy:

Pope surprises, delights 40,000 Italian pro-lifers, joins March for Life

ROME, May 12, 2013 ( LifeSiteNews.com )– Pope Francis surprised about 40,000 Italian and international participants in today’s Marcia per la Vita (March for Life) Internazionale in Rome this morning, when he left the Apostolic Palace to greet them personally from his popemobile in the street where they were lined up.

Monsignore Ignacio Barreiro, the head of the Rome office of Human Life International, told LifeSiteNews.com that for the pope to have effectively joined the March for Life was highly unusual.

Since his election, the pope has gained a reputation for making spontaneous gestures that have sometimes taxed his security staff, beginning with taking the bus back to his temporary residence with the other cardinals the night of his election, instead of the car reserved for the pope.

In this case, however, the Vatican appeared to have prepared the event ahead of time. Monsignore Barreiro noted they had prepared crowd control barriers to guide the popemobile out of St. Peter’s square and across the adjacent piazza and down the wide Via della Conciliazione that leads up the Basilica.

But if organizers knew about a planned appearance by the pope at the march, they made no mention of it before the event, leaving participants delighted by the unexpected arrival of the pontiff.

"The March for Life brought 40 thousand people to Rome today," organizers announced after the event. "The Pope greeted the march at the Regina Coeli and then met the parade on the Popemobile in the Via Concilazione."

I learned something I didn't know. The Nazis marching across Europe in the 1930s and 40s were a political party. That's interesting.
