Obama has a Catholic problem, big time

| | Comments (0)
The other day the New York Times published a graph showing, according to polls, that Catholic voters pose a serious problem for tomorrow's election. Interesting. The red bar demonstrates that a 24% lead for the Republicans among US Catholics.  Remember, Catholics voted for Barack Obama, 54-44% in 2008. No poll tells the whole truth and, in my are barely an indicator of what is really thought by those polled. This poll is no different. However, if the pollsters are remotely correct, Catholics could lead the way to change in the November 2 election from Democrat-to-Republican.

Let's be honest: Catholics are no different in their voting patterns than the general public. Sad but true. And I find this fact to be a disappointing fact. Discriminating who these Catholics are as active (or non-active) is curious. The polls tell us that weekly church-going Catholics in 2008 did not vote for Democrats, more or less.
