Within the margin of error
(A) Fox News-Opinion Dynamics poll taken earlier this week shows that of 269 registered Catholic voters polled, 47 percent supported Kerry while 41 percent preferred President Bush. Catholics also have a favorability rating of Kerry of 48 percent, while the general public has a rate of 43 percent. The margin of error was 6 percent.
JFK won 80% of the Catholic vote. Clinton (1996) won 53%. Gore (2000) won 50%. Bush's 41% in this poll is less than his 47% in 2000 but still very good. We need to do all we can to get Catholics to support President Bush.
