The Morning Buzz | June 25, 2012

Welcome to the Morning Buzz, PRRI’s morning dose of religion-related news with a shot of data – because what doesn’t liven up a morning round-up like some public opinion numbers?

As we continue to wait for the Supreme Court’s decision on health care reform, (hopefully not breathlessly, since there are signs that it could come down as late as Wednesday or Thursday), the Pew Research Center predicts that no matter what they decide, Americans aren’t going to like it.

In an interview with Christianity Today, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio discusses his religious beliefs, adding that he doesn’t endorse criticisms of President Obama’s faith. Meanwhile, another piece for Christianity Today explores whether Obama counts as an evangelical. Today, fewer than 4-in-10 (36%) voters correctly identify Barack Obama as Protestant or just Christian.

In case you were under the misapprehension that traveling on a campaign bus was a jolly good time, GQ is here to remind you that political journalism is all about greasy food, dusty roads, and squabbling over MacBook chargers.
