ROMNEY CEDES CATHOLIC STATES TO OBAMA
The Romney-Ryan campaign is giving up on millions of Catholic voters in key swing states. The above map shows the twelve battleground states early this year. Since then, the Romney campaign has given up efforts in the three most Catholic of those battleground states -- New Mexico, Pennsylvania and Michigan. These heavily Catholic states are now expected to support President Obama in the November election. The Romney-Ryan campaign has ceased major efforts in all three.
At this point, the only battleground state where the Romney-Ryan ticket is leading is North Carolina, the least Catholic state in the nation.
The fact that the first states the Romney campaign retreats from are the most Catholic battleground states shows the profound trouble he is having with Catholic voters. It is also a sign of the excellent work that is being done by the Obama-Biden campaign in our state, diocesan and parish Catholics for Obama committees.
