Apples and oranges. Your claim on the other thread was that the so-called “Catholic vote” has moved in McCain’s direction. This says the churchgoing vote, including the churchgoing Catholic vote, is McCain’s.
The Catholic vote, as defined by pollsters, is not the same as the religious vote, as this article clearly states. As I posted to you on the other thread, and as this article highlights, churchgoing Catholics tend to vote like other churchgoers, while non-churchgoing CINOS tend to vote like other non-religious people.
That churchgoing Catholics support McCain is not to say that Catholics overall will. Sadly for McCain, fewer than half of self-identified Catholics attend mass.
So McCain leads among churchgoing Catholics 53-37 and trails among non-churchgoing Catholics by 47-45, how exactly is he not leading overall among Catholics? Fewer than half may attend Mass but he is overwhelmingly winning that group and very close with those who don’t. And this is July 15. It is August 15. It’s moving further in our direction and will continue to do so as Catholics will overwhelmingly support mainstream issues such as drilling and reject PBA and anything approaching infanticide.
