Catholic voters matched overall trends in US elections

In this year’s Congressional elections, American Catholic voters leaned toward Republican candidates, matching the nationwide trend, according to exit polls cited by the New York Times.

The Times found that 53% of self-identified Catholic voters cast their ballots for a Republican candidate, while 45% supported a Democrat. Those results nearly duplicated the responses for all voters, who favored Republican by a 52-45% margin.

The exit-poll responses from Catholic voters were also nearly identical to the results in the 2010 off-year Congressional elections, when 52% of the Catholics surveyed supported a Republican and 45% a Democrat.
