Poll: Catholics Now Lean Toward Donald Trump over Joe Biden
U.S. Catholics now lean toward former President Donald Trump over President Joe Biden, according to a Pew Research poll, released on Tuesday.
The survey examined the preferences of U.S. voters based on their religious affiliation, and it seems Catholic voters in the U.S. are turning on Biden, a self-proclaimed Catholic.
According to the poll, Trump has an edge, leading Biden amongst all voters by a single percentage point. But among Catholics, specifically, Trump has majority support, as 55 percent support Trump compared to 43 percent who support Biden — a 12-point difference.
Among white, non-Hispanic Catholics, Trump has a 23-point lead, 61 percent to Biden’s 38 percent. There is a near-split among Hispanic Catholics, as Biden has a two-point edge over Trump with 49 percent support to Trump’s 47 percent support.
Trump also has a 22-point lead over Biden among protestant voters — 60 percent to Biden’s 39 percent support. While Trump leads Biden 81 percent to 17 percent among white evangelicals and 57 percent to 41 percent among white non-evangelicals, black protestants go for Biden with 77 percent to Trump’s 18 percent support.
Predictably, Biden leads Trump among the religiously unaffiliated, with 69 percent to 28 percent support.

Catholics' support swings for Trump over Biden by significant margin:
Catholics in the U.S. have swung dramatically against President Biden in recent years, now boasting a significant statistical break towards his GOP challenger.
Pew Research released on Apr. 30 a report exploring support for presidential candidates sorted by religious affiliation.
The poll found that 55% of Catholics support or lean towards supporting former President Donald Trump in a head-to-head against Biden.
Conversely, only 43% of Catholics support Biden in the same one-on-one pairing.
The 12% margin of support in favor of Trump marks a significant shift from 2020, when he held an extremely narrow lead — 50% to 49%.
Biden currently leads among Hispanic Catholics with a narrow 49%-47% split, but the close contest marks a major shift rightward for the demographic. In 2020, a similar poll from Pew Research found Hispanic Catholics preferred Biden to Trump with a staggering 67%-26% split. --->READ MORE HERE
