CHICAGO (Reuters) - Pope Francis, formally installed on Tuesday as head of the world's 1.2 billion Roman Catholics, has made a good impression so far in the United States among Catholics and non-Catholics, though few Americans knew much about him, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed.
Of those who are aware of the new pope, 85 percent of all U.S. adults surveyed had a favourable view of him, including 94 percent of Catholics, according to the poll.
