Over the last few days, CNN used Jana Research to understand African sentiment about the potential of a Pope from Africa. In the last three days, we asked 20,000 Africans in 11 countries the following questions:


Is Africa ready for an Africa Pope?

Is the world ready for an African Pope?

Is The Vatican ready for an African Pope?

Would the Catholic Church be more or less conservative with an African Pope?

Do you believe an African Pope would increase support for Catholicism in Africa?

What would be the impact of an African Pope on the continent or your life?


We are excited about the results, and we encourage you to download the full overview of the data here: CNN-Jana African Pope Aggregate Data
