Biden leads Trump by 12 points among Catholic voters: poll

Last edited Tue Sep 22, 2020, 01:09 AM - Edit history (1)

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden holds a 12-point lead over President Trump among likely voters who identify as Catholic, according to a poll released Monday.

A EWTN News/RealClear Opinion poll found in a poll of 1,212 likely Catholic voters that 53 percent favor Biden, compared to 41 percent who prefer Trump. The poll was taken before the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The poll found that 50 percent of respondents voted for 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton while 45 percent voted for Trump, a sign that Biden has widened the gap among Catholic voters.

Catholics who are more devout about going to church tend to back Trump, according to the poll. Fifty-eight percent of Catholics who attend Mass daily back the president, as do 61 percent of those who attend services more than once a week. By comparison, 69 percent of Catholics who seldom attend Mass support Biden.


Could be the fact that Biden is a practicing Catholic? Trump? He's a member of the two Corinthians who grab 'em by the pussy cult.

White Catholics overwhelmingly voted Trump.


Trump remains alarmingly strong among white catholics.

Also a majority of Catholics of color did not vote for them, and seem less inclined to do so this time.

I am white, belong to a Catholic parish which is almost entirely African-American. These folks walk the walk. But the kind of talk, re Trump, I hear out of those very devout ladies' mouths ...

Trump is a guy who, if you asked him to eat the body of his Savior, would just ask if it came with secret sauce.
