- Obama won the Catholic vote overall, 50 percent to 48 percent. That's a bit surprising given he was supposedly at war with the church. Bishops, take note.
- Okay, but let's dig deeper. Among white Catholics, Romney won 59-40 percent. That's about the same racial breakdown for all voters, so not much to see here folks. Let's move on.
- Among Catholics who attend church regularly, Romney won 57-42 percent. Republicans usually win this category.
- Among Catholics who do not attend regularly, Obama won 56-42 percent. These are mirror images of one another. Fascinating stuff. By the way, in the electorate there are more non-regular Catholics than regularly attending Catholics by a couple of percentage points. In other words, Obama wins.
Stay tuned for more data crunching.
