linegraph.jpgThe Obama campaign is crowing to God-o-Meter about its uptick in white Catholic support in the Quinnipiac poll released yesterday. The poll had Obama ahead 51-42 among white Catholics, a turnaround from last month, when the Q poll gave McCain a 48-40 lead.

Makes you wonder if reports about Catholic defections from the Democratic Party in light of recent criticisms of Democratic politicians from some Catholic bishops are overblown and if Mark Silk and Beliefnet’s David Gibson are right in arguing that the salience of the abortion issue among Catholics has been exaggerated by the news media.
