Was Madame de Polignac particularly devout? I remember you discussed how the Queen grew in her faith, but what about her friends?

I don't think she was particularly devout although she was by no means hostile to the Faith. She was a Freemason like Madame de Lamballe. They saw the ladies' lodges as ways to help the poor.
