A clear majority of voters in the crucial presidential election swing states of Colorado, Iowa, and Virginia agree with Pope Francis' call to action on the issue of climate change, according to the results of a new Quinnipiac University poll. 

When asked, “Do you agree or disagree with the message from Pope Francis calling on the world to do more to address climate change?” a substantial majority of voters in all three states indicated that they agreed.
