Those numbers are baloney. First, consider the source. Georgetown is a liberal, practically ex-Catholic university. Second, do you expect me to believe only 7% more attend Mass only once or a few times as opposed to the weeklies? Easily over half attend at least once a year. You underestimate the CINOs. Many may be rabid Bush-hating pro-Obama Democrats but not as many will come out for Obama when his votes come under scrutiny after the conventions.

“Georgetown is a liberal...”

And yet you quoted Zogby to me as authoritative. Double standard much?

I didn’t quote it as authoritative. I said it supported a trend. So does this Gallup.

But enough.

Enough is right. I can’t debate with someone who thinks “because I saw it somewhere” is a persuasive argument, and says flat out that he will not do research to support his assertions. Have a nice weekend.

Oh spare me the drama. McCain’s going to win the composite Catholic vote. Hide behind whatever June poll you like, Zogby and Gallup show the vote moving in McCain’s direction. How’s that for research?

“How’s that for research?”

Lousy. Bad sources make for bad assumptions, and Zogby’s online poll is poorly designed and error-prone. My statistics and probability professors in graduate school would have had a cow at the very thought of using online polling with the same respondents over and over again, respondents who had volunteered to be polled in the first place. Random sampling, my butt.

If the Catholic vote swing had been toward Obama you’d be disparaging Zogby instead of quoting him to me, you know you would. Hang your hat on Zogby. Go ahead. Have you actually looked at Zogby’s polling other than cherrypicking one crosstab from one poll? Of course not, how silly of me to ask.

Zogby’s polling has Obama winning the electoral vote by such a margin that even if McCain won all the remaining purple states, he couldn’t win the election. You’d better hope Zogby’s methodology is as bad as I’ve been trying to tell you it is, ‘cause he’s got McCain losing, big.

And I’ve alredy posted to you the only item on Gallup’s website re the Catholic vote, and it didn’t say McCain was winning them.

But, like I said, enough. We’re not going to convince each other. I’m done responding to you.

So you are telling me Zogby can’t even poll a trend. Ridiculous. And I said Gallup too. But you ignore that. READ THIS ARTICLE.

No one in recent elections has won the Catholic vote and lost the election. Did you watch the debate last night? It’s moving. Once again. Towards us.

Cheer up. We are going to win.

How did I reach age 58 and never get asked my opinion about presidential candidates?

Call screening.

What did you think of the evangelicals’ reactions to Obama and McCain at the Rick Warren church?
