OBAMA WOWS CATHOLIC CUBANS
The Cuban-American community has been known to be strongly Catholic and strongly Republican. It has been maybe the only significant social element that has modified the GOP's tendency to be an all-white/Anglo club.
President Obama is winning tremendous support from Catholic Cuban-Americans. More surprisingly, he is doing so even while venturing into Cuban policy issues that are unlikely to make everyone happy. Over 67% of Catholic Cuban-Americans have a favorable view of the President, the highest level since Ronald Reagan and even higher than the general population's support for Obama. 64% of Cuban Americans say they support the President's Cuban policy (61% of the general population says so).
Strong generational differences also exist with younger Cuban Americans wildly enthusiastic about President Obama.
Seemingly, the narrow community of Obama-hating Catholics draws smaller and whiter.
