Deal Hudson: "McCain Wins Catholic Vote in Florida Primary"
Deal Hudson writes at InsideCatholic:
Exit polling from the Florida primary can be found at the CNN website. John McCain won the overall Catholic vote 40 percent to Romney's 27 percent and Huckabee's 2 percent. Among mass-attending Catholics, McCain won 35 percent of their vote compared to Romney's 30 percent. Romney did better among Protestants than McCain by 9 percentage points.My Comments:
It looks like McCain's immigration stance, given the number of Hispanic Catholic voters, will have a major impact on the final results in Florida.
Huckabee just can't seem to catch on with Catholic voters. A paltry 2% of the Catholic vote?
It should be noted that McCain won handily among voters who think abortion should always be legal (45%), voters who think abortion should mostly be legal (42%), voters who attend church only a few times a year (39%), voters who never attend church (41%), and Catholics who who are not regular Mass-goers (40%).
Wonder what they know about McCain that the rest of us don't seem to be getting?
