Vocal Point-Pat Caddell

Pat Caddell is a pollster who worked for the Carter administration. Today he is a Fox News Contributor. A few years ago, in August 2015, he conducted a study on religious liberty in contrast with gay rights. He said, “When asked whether it should be up to the federal government to determine what constitutes legitimate religious beliefs only 11 percent agreed and a massive 79 percent disagreed. Indeed, even two thirds of those on the ‘left’ of the segmentation disagreed.” He also noted that 71 percent of Americans want “a commonsense solution that both protects religious freedom and gay and lesbian couples from discrimination.” This 3-year old study is interesting in light of the recent Supreme Court decision on Masterpiece Cake. Pat Caddell joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss these issues.
