Early analysis of the 2018 midterms suggests some sobering food for thought for the American bishops.
A strong white evangelical, white Catholic and Mormon vote for Donald Trump belied the condemnation many religious leaders had leveled at the tycoon and paved the way for a stunning upset after a long and polarizing campaign.
Delve into the poll numbers, and trends emerge that speak to the future of Catholic voting in the U.S. While white Catholics favor Donald Trump over Democrat Hillary Clinton 48 to 41 percent in a recent PRRI poll, the opposite is true of non-white Catholics, the vast majority of whom are Latino. Those non-white Catholics choose Clinton over Trump 78 to 17 percent.
