Donald Trump Has a Massive Catholic Problemposted on August 29, 2016
The Washington Post‘s Aaron Blake writes that presidential candidate Donald Trump is losing the Catholic vote by a large margin, 55 to 32. “Yes, the man who once feuded with the pope (how soon we forget that actually happened) is cratering among Catholics,” Blake writes. Catholics make up about 25 percent of registered voters, and while their vote is not monolithic, they tend to be considered an election bellwether. In 2012, Romney only lost the Catholic vote by 2 points.
