The Democratic Party is facing a Catholic apocalypse – Salon.com


This should be no brainer… Catholics should not vote for anyone who supports abortion, its that simple. Yes I know we are not a one issue faith, yes I know other issues count. But abortion is a major issue, and should have more value in voting than other “social” issues.


SEN. JOHN KENNEDY

It’s one of the central contradictions of American politics: that there’s no such thing as the “Catholic vote,” yet the Catholics vote still matters.

There’s no “Catholic vote” in terms of Catholics representing an electoral bloc that votes according to what their bishops tell them, or in lockstep with the tenets of their religion. Yet winning Catholic voters has been essential to almost every presidential victory in modern times. And the defection of Catholics voters has played a role in some of the most consequential congressional turnovers in recent history — from 1994 to 2014 — making Catholics the ultimate swing voters. And for Democrats, that could be bad news.
