Dear Mr. Arbuckle,
As you may recall, you were in contact with CARA a couple of years ago about the possibility of including questions about the Traditional Latin Mass in one of our surveys. I just wanted to let you know that we were able to include questions very similar to those you were interested in in a poll we conducted in 2008 and have just released the results. The press release is posted on our website at http://cara.georgetown.edu/pr082409.pdf. The findings suggest that fewer have an opinion about the than was the case when the asked about it in 1985. I suspect that this is largely a function of many fewer Catholics having any recollection or experience of the Traditional Latin Mass than was the case in 1985.
I hope you find this information helpful.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
