Democrats Lose Catholic, Female Voters in 2010 Election; More Gays Vote Republican
On Tuesday night, a majority of Catholics and Protestants voted for Republican candidates.
In 2008, Catholics, who accounted for about a quarter of the electorate, supported Obama, at 54 percent, over McCain, at 45 percent. This was despite the fact that Obama was the most radical pro-abortion candidate in history.
Democrats also lost female voters this year:
56% of females and 49% of males voted democrat in 2008.
And, more gay voters chose Republicans this year than in 2008. 31% of self-identified gay voters supported Republican candidates for the U.S. House. This number is a dramatic increase from the 19% GOP House candidates won among gay voters in 2008.
That’s gotta hurt.
