New Data Suggest Clinton, Not Trump, Won Catholic Vote

posted on April 7, 2017

America‘s Michael J. O’Loughlin reports, “According to an analysis of American National Election Studies data by a political scientist at Georgetown University’s Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate, Catholic voters narrowly went for Democrat Hillary Clinton, 48 percent to 45 percent. Among Hispanic Catholics, Mrs. Clinton cleaned up handily, winning by more than 50 points.” The findings may refute the conclusion made in the days after the November election that President Trump won the Catholic vote. O’Loughlin writes, “Mark Gray, the director of polling at CARA who analyzed the A.N.E.S. data for a forthcoming book, said in an interview with America that in his view, the Catholic vote in the 2016 election was more or less split.”
