God-o-meter reports that the Obama campaign is crowing about yesterday’s Quinnipiac poll showing white Catholics breaking for Obama 51 percent to 42 percent. If it’s true, it’s an astonishing number. White Catholics haven’t favored a Democratic presidential candidate by that margin in years. The Pew survey also released yesterday, with a polling window earlier by just a couple of days, had McCain up among white Catholics 48-41. Unless and until more evidence to the contrary comes along, I’m sticking with Pew on this one.
