The Word from Key West

Key West.jpgAna Marie Cox is live blogging the latest Pew Forum religion briefing in Key West. There’s a lot from Bill Galston on Obama’s Catholic problem, relying on PA exit polls. I remain something of a skeptic. Yes, in PA white Catholics voted significantly more for Clinton than white Protestants did, but in a lot of states they didn’t; and in some states it was the other way around (as has been noted a number of times in this blog). Let’s see what happens tomorrow. My guess is that we’re going to be seeing not much of a difference between white Catholics and white Protestants in Indiana, and a bigger vote for Obama among white Catholics than white Protestants in North Carolina. (For the record, close to 14 percent of Hoosiers and 4 percent of Tarheels are Catholic.)
