Speaking as a Roman Catholic I feel the Catholic vote is far from united. Unfortunately the Catholic vote is more a reflection of where we are from (liberal urban areas vs conservative rural areas) than what our faith schizophrenically teaches us.

Yeah. I'd say there are at least three "Catholic votes", if you count the "sort of Catholic" as one. There's the pro-life vote and the pro-social welfare vote.

But that's from the POV of ideology. I think there is an ethnic or cultural Catholic vote of Catholics how haven't gotten over being immigrants or Boston Irish or whatever.
