Which candidate polls well with Catholics? Protestants? Evangelicals.
The last reports from Pew Research show:
- Hillary Clinton has a slight lead among Catholics in general, but with Hispanic Catholics in particular: 77%-16%
Trump is winning the White Catholic vote by 50%-46%.
For perspective, Obama won the catholic vote 50% to 48% for Romney in 2012.
- Trump is still scoring high among Evangelical voters (73% vs. 21% for Clinton)
Agnostics, atheists, and “no religion” are moving toward Hillary Clinton (68% vs. 26%)
Right now, Trump is scoring lower with Evangelicals than George W. Bush, John McCain, and even Mitt Romney during their Presidential campaigns.
With Mike Pence as his VP pick, Trump’s poll numbers with evangelical voters will probably improve.
