About half of all American adults hold an unfavorable view of the Mormon Church. A recently conducted national poll of over 1,000 Americans reveals that slightly more Americans hold an unfavorable view of the LDS church than a favorable view. The poll also reveals some of the sources of these negative opinions toward the Mormon church. When Americans think about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, thoughts about polygamy, false doctrine, family values and cult-like qualities come to mind.
So the mystery is unveiled: fewer than half of American adults hold a positive opinion of the LDS Church.
