Election 2016 - Catholic Vote.

According to National Review:


//According to last night’s exit polling, president-elect Donald Trump won 52 percent of the Catholic vote, compared to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s 45 percent. The Catholic vote has a history of swinging between the two major parties quite a bit depending on the year, but it has favored Democrats in recent elections; since 2000, the only Republican presidential candidate to win the majority of Catholics was George W. Bush in 2004. Somehow, though, Trump managed to capture a larger percentage of Catholic voters than did Clinton, despite the fact that he seems less aligned with typical “Catholic values” than a candidate such as Mitt Romney, who lost Catholics to Obama by a slim margin.//
