(RightWing.org) – Joe Biden’s electoral hopes have taken a knock, according to new poll results released on Monday, October 19. The Democrat challenger has made a big deal of being an “Irish Catholic,” and up to now, that’s gained him a lot of support from Catholic voters. However, with President Trump’s nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett for the Supreme Court, that seems to be changing.
The poll, conducted last week for Eternal Word Television Network, shows that while Biden still has the most support among Catholic voters, it’s nowhere near as solid as he needs it to be. The reason? Judge Barrett’s nomination is extremely popular among Catholics. The poll found 46% supported the nomination while only 28% opposed it.

The real bad news for Biden is his lead among Catholics is narrowest in six of the key swing states – Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. In those states, Catholics still lean towards Biden, but his 4% lead is within the margin of error. He’s also losing ground among independents, who are the most likely to attend Mass at least once a week – while more frequent Mass attenders are more likely to support President Trump.
With the election less than three weeks away every vote counts! Make sure your voice is heard on November 3rd.
