A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 59% of
likely Catholic voters nationwide at least somewhat disapprove of the
president’s job performance, while 40% at least somewhat approve. But
the passion’s on the side of those who don’t like the job he’s doing:
44% Strongly Disapprove versus 19% who Strongly Approve.
Fifty-four percent (54%) of Catholics voted for Obama in November 2008.
However, Republican hopeful Mitt Romney currently leads the president
among Catholic voters by a 52% to 35% margin. Among all voters, however,
President Obama leads Romney and all Republican hopefuls.
