On February 19, 2004 US Newswire reported, "Today, the nation's largest interfaith organization released results of The Interfaith Alliance/Zogby International Poll, which reaffirmed that Americans want to maintain the historical separation between the institutions of religion and government. By an overwhelming margin, consistent across regional, religious, and ethnic sub- groups, Americans believe that such separation is essential to the American form of government and they want their religious leaders to refrain from endorsing candidates or political parties in their official capacity."
