I would agree with you, were it not for the fact that the Obama regime has gone to war with Catholics. The way to take advantage of that isn’t by moving to the left, but by defending religious freedom from leftist government. Whether or not we get a majority of the Catholic vote doesn’t matter. We need to increase our influence with people who will vote their values. When the moral majority turned the South, a lot of lifelong Democrats became life long conservatives.
The democrats lost Southerners because of religious issues decades ago but Catholics don’t vote from a religiously conservative point of view.
