TIME Magazine Poll on Catholic Voters
Deal Hudson reports at InsideCatholic on a new TIME Magazine poll of Catholic voters:
A new TIME poll shows Obama and McCain running almost even among Catholic voters (McCain 46% to Obama 45%).
Amy Sullivan interprets the poll results as good news for Obama, but I disagree. Obama has been enjoying such adoring media coverage, and so many stories have been written about religious conservative voters changing their issue preferences -- that Obama is still in a dead-heat with McCain is not good news for him.
Another aspect of Sullivan's TIME story is the focus it places on Doug Kmeic, the Catholic pro-life jurist, who has endorsed Obama. Sullivan uses Kmiec to represent what she sees as a drift of Catholic voters toward the Democratic Party and Obama.
