Current polling indicates Obama has gained with voters who attend church occasionally and could possibly win the Catholics next week. Kerry, who would have been the second Catholic president, lost Catholics to Methodist George W. Bush by about a million votes, according to exit polls.
Democrats have lost weekly churchgoers of all races by double-digits in every two-man presidential election since 1980, and by increasingly wide margins. Michael Dukakis lost these voters by about 10 percentage points in 1988, while Kerry lagged by more than 20 points in 2004.

I read of a couple of polls last week showing McCain LEADING among Catholics. I believe the fact that over 100 Bishops have spoken out so forcefully on the Right to Life this year, has caused many Catholics, who had considered voting for Obama, because they've always voted Democrat, to change their minds.
