CNN - Vatican City — Pope Francis is about to celebrate his first Christmas at the Vatican and a new poll suggests American Catholics are happy he's at the helm of their church.
88-percent of U.S. Catholics approve of how he's been doing his job since he became Pope in March, that according to a CNN/ORC poll. And about two-thirds approve of the Pope's recent comments on capitalism, abortion, homosexuality and the role of women in the church.
