Oh that's right he never did supply them.

In several dozen other threads (at least) he most assuredly has. Doing so in threads where such evidences weren't exactly germane to the rest of the conversation, at times. Using the statistics like a bludgeon even...I guess you missed all of that.

Yes we know that Protestants vote overwhelmingly for democrats thank you.

Again, do you have a source for that? There is persistence in demanding citation from the other, but unwillingness to carry a similar burden yourself for the above quoted claim. I see too, that none others are coming to the rescue in regards to that narrow claim. I suggest it is because it can't be done, other than under specious conditions, at best.

Yet there is some pretense towards yet another (who has generally been making sense) that they themselves be childish. Such examples and argumentative behavior is # 27,347 on the list of reasons I find no special charism of "righteousness" within the ranks of the RCC, as compared to other Christian associations [generally].

It's like sleeping in a garage, makes no one into a car... but nevermind my own personal level of underwhelmed-ness concerning such matters, here's a link from a source perhaps friendly to you;

Here's where much that can be found concerning polling data sorted by religious affiliation (for better or worse) can I believe, be traced back to; http://www.pewforum.org/Politics-and-Elections/How-the-Faithful-Voted-2012-Preliminary-Exit-Poll-Analysis.aspx

From the above table, it can be seen that twice, Obama carried the so-called "Catholic vote", if there is any such thing...
Which makes me a bit wrong upthread, from going by memory, I mistakenly thought Romney had gotten 54% of the RC vote. I was wrong. It looks more like 50%. Perhaps my memory was affected by some of the denialists spin miesters around here?

When the numbers (in other polling data) separate out those whom attend church frequently, there is a resulting voting pattern breaking towards conservatives (or their approximation/stand-ins, like Romney).

But LOOK at the chart. What do you see for the "born again, Evangelical" vote? Nearly 80%

Even full coverage "protestant" numbers, show that weird " Yes we know that Protestants vote overwhelmingly for democrats thank you." to be quite wrong, though you were previously somewhat correct concerning Hispanic Catholics going over to Democrats in much greater numbers.

I am sorry protestants far too many Catholics around here are just too intellectually dishonest to deal with. I am going to do something more productive such as bang my head against the wall. Feel free to have the last word

Gee I am sorry I don't have time to read every single post on every single thread. But thank you for posting the information.

Unless we are talking about Black Protestants, which indicates maybe something other than religion is at play here.

White Catholics voted consistently Republican, Hispanic Catholics did not.

For some, the "gimmie" will take precedence every time.
