The folks over at the Pew Forum have a new interactivegraph that allows you to look at support for the two presidential candidates by religious affiliation and degree of religious practice.I know, you're dying to know what the Catholic numbers are, right? Among all Catholics, Obama has a 15 point lead. Since he's essentially tied with Romney among White Catholics, I suspect Obama is running up very large margins among Latino Catholics, but the tool doesn't provide that breakdown. Similarly, you can look at differences between those who frequently attend services and those who come less often, but you can't look at differences in attendance by denomination.And, yes, this post is a bit prosaic, but it's really just an excuse to see if I can get the blog interface to work on my smartphone. The answer is yes, but don't expect a lot of longform.
