Latino Catholics

Remember the idea that all the Latino Catholic immigrants would make the USA more conservative? Daniel Silliman says:

According to a Pew poll done in October, 71 percent of Latino Catholics identified as Democrats, and 73 percent were planning on voting for Obama. They were nearly 20 percent more likely to support Obama than non-Latino Catholics. That overwhelming support didn’t disappear when one measured for religiosity, either: among Latinos who attended mass weekly, more than 60 percent said they would vote for Obama. Where the so-called “God gap” is in effect with whites, it seems minimal at best with Latinos.
