No Wonder the Democrats want Amnesty for Illegals

Catholics are fleeing the party! Gotta offset the loss.

The Democratic Party is facing a Catholic apocalypse

According to author, Patricia Miller, Catholics are the "ultimate swing voters" who have played an important and decisive role in some important votes over the past two decades. (I would guess Eric Cantor's loss was one of the them.) Here's a bit from the article:
While Catholics have been swing voters since Richard Nixon’s second term, white Catholics are now identifying as Republican by historic margins. According to the most recent polling from the Pew Research Center, 53 percent of white Catholics now favor the GOP, versus 39 percent who favor the Democrats—the largest point spread in the history of the Pew poll. And for the first time, white Catholics are more Republican than the voting group usually considered the ultimate Republicans: white Protestants (a designation that includes both mainline and evangelical Protestants).
These are ominous signs for the Democrats, evincing a new and growing allegiance with the Republican Party that has long-term implications.
It's interesting to read the proposed reasons for Catholic flight. One is based on the issues, that orthodox bishops are saying you can't vote for the party of abortion and sodomy and the contraceptive mandate. Another cause -- that liberal Catholics are leaving the Church right and left so the ones left are the orthodox voting their faith. ( What real Catholic can vote for a party whose platform supports the murder of the innocent and the destruction of marriage?) 
But one trend is credited with major influence -- the increased number of Catholic politicians elected from the South and elected as Republicans. 2015 was the first year that Catholic Republicans outnumber Catholic Democrats. 
That doesn't mean Catholics support Republicans wholeheartedly. They oppose Congress' free-spending ways and the loose immigration policies. 
Despite the changes in white Catholic voters choices, Hispanics continue to vote Democrat. So, as I said at the beginning, "No wonder the Democrats want amnesty for illegals." It's a no-brainer. That's the voting bloc that continues to buy the Deimocrats' snake oil of loving compassion for the poor while they champion the murder of their children.
