Most Americans are struggling to muster enthusiasm about the presidential candidate they plan to vote for. A new survey from Barna not only reveals the numbers behind that lack of enthusiasm, but also identifies which candidate is seen as having more of the qualities expected of a president.
Despite the tight race for the presidency between Trump and Clinton, each candidate is drawing a vastly different segment of voters. A new study from Barna indicates just how divergent those segments are—and helps to explain how divided the nation is in its vision for the future.
The topic of physical healing is one of the more contested in the church today. Though scripture is full of accounts of the miraculous, the topic tends to be fairly divisive. Barna asked American adults their beliefs, practices and experiences related to supernatural physical healing.
Talk of climate change is “heating up” at the UN General Assembly this week with Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon calling it “the defining challenge of our time.” As part of a larger study on social and political issues, Barna asked American adults their view on the causes of, and solutions to, climate change and global warming.
Americans are attending church less, and more people—particularly Millennials—are experiencing and practicing their faith outside of its four walls. Based on a large pool of data collected over the course of this year, Barna conducted an analysis on the state of the church, looking closely at affiliation, attendance and practice to determine the overall health of Christ’s Body in America.
Ever since the tragic events of September 11, 2001, the threat of terrorism has become a major preoccupation not only in government policy debates, but in the hearts and minds of the American public. In light of the 15th anniversary of 9/11, Barna conducted a survey to gauge the evolving views of American adults on the complex issues of terrorism.
