I replied to this. “Republicans need to corner the Catholic vote and persuade Catholics that the Democrats are NOT on their side.”
I say again, good luck with that. I am amazed at how liberal Catholics can be,it has been my experience that the ones I know tend to vote for dims. This goes back to the election of Jimmy Carter. I'm saying that the Catholics I have known for my entire life tend to be liberal. Sorry if that doesn't conform with your opinion.

Opinion?

This is not a matter of opinion. It's a matter of observation. Observation and opinion are not the same things. The results of the recent Virginia elections are facts. Deal with them.

My observations of the voting habits of Catholics, going back to the late 1960s, are apparently different from your observations of the voting habits of Catholics going back to the mid 1970s. Both sets of observations are Facts; they have nothing to do with opinion.

You expect others to learn from facts which you have observed? You would do well to learn from the facts which they have observed. (Finally, an opinion.) Messrs. McDonnell and Cuccinelli appear to have had no trouble cornering just about every voting bloc in this fine Commonwealth. They did so (in my opinion) by being honest and consistent in espousing conservative principles. Other candidates would do well (here's another opinion) to emulate them. And FReepers (one last opinion, here) would do well to move their analysis beyond the snarky remark.
