The "Catholic Vote"

For John, BLUFAs I said on today's shows, the election was about the Middle Class.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

From The Boston Pilot and Mr Matt Hadro, we have a quick look at how those who identify as Romans Catholics voted in the Presidential Election.
Catholics voted once again for the winning presidential candidate in Tuesday’s election, as they have done in recent elections.

“Catholics continue to be the only major religious voting block that can shift from one election to the next,” Dr. Mark Gray of the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA) at Georgetown University stated on Wednesday.

“This is what makes the Catholic vote such an important swing vote. Presidential candidates who win the Catholic vote almost always win the presidency,” he added.

Then the article looks at a deeper analysis of polling and how the vote swung, and also about correlation and Mass attendance.

So, without comment.  Over to you.
