Decline of Americans’ faith in religious institutions

Listen 00:48:45

Marty talks about why Americans’ faith in religious institutions is declining and about a new survey about the biggest barriers to attending church and other religious services. We’ll be joined by EMMA GREEN, a senior associate editor at ​The Atlantic, where she covers politics, policy, and religion, and by JONATHAN MARTIN, National political correspondent for The New York Times and a political analyst for CNN. And we’ll talk about Trump’s outreach to evangelicals, and the Clinton-Kaine ticket’s appeal to Catholic voters, with DAVID GIBSON, National Reporter for the Religion News Service.
