The new Pew poll has Obama making amazing gains among Catholics and Mainline Protestants. Most interesting, some of the biggest gains were among regular church goers:
White Catholics who attend mass weekly favored McCain 52-36% a month ago. Now, it’s tied at 45%.
White Mainline Protestants who go to church weekly favored McCain 53% to 39% a month ago. Stunningly, they now favor Obama 47%-44%
More evidence that the Mainline surge is key to Obama’s recent success.
