Jack and Charmaine:
I thought you might be interested in a recent poll of religious voters. Following the party conventions and after a week of campaigning, John McCain has closed the gap significantly among Catholics likely to vote. Mr. Wagner of QEV, who undertook the landmark Catholic Voter Project for the 2000 election cycle and has been studying Catholic voter attitudes for more than a decade, points out that McCain has pulled to within two points of Barack Obama, 45-47 percent (8% undecided).
In a mid-August, pre-convention QEV survey, McCain trailed Obama 40-50 percent, with 10 percent undecided.
This is a group Bush ultimately won 52-47 percent in 2004.
At this point in the 2004 campaign, Bush led Kerry among Catholics 47-46 percent.
At this point in the 2000 campaign, Gore led Bush 52-41 percent.
Among religiously-active Catholics likely to vote, McCain leads Obama 53 to 39 percent (8% are undecided).
Â·In mid-August, McCain led 49-42 percent (9% undecided).
Â·Bush ultimately won this group in 2004 56-43 percent.
These results were obtained in a nationally-representative telephone interview survey with 1019 adults, conducted September 8 -14, 2008, utilizing random-digit dialing methodology. The margin of sampling error for a sample of 1019 is ±3.1% at a 95% confidence level. http://www.thecatholicassociation.org http://www.thecatholicassociation.org/images/pdfs/tcaelectionupdate1.pdf
