Question of the Day
Yet among “very religious” Catholics, Mr. Romney wins, 62 percent to 32 percent for Mr. Obama. He also draws the majority of “moderately religious” Catholics, while the president wins among “nonreligious” Catholics, 54 percent to 40 percent.
“There are major differences by the ethnicity and religiosity of Catholics that underscore the difficulty of typifying and subsequently targeting an ‘average’ Catholic voter,” Mr. Newport observes.
Sen. John McCain and then Sen. Barack Obama both appeared on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” when they were duking it out on the campaign trail four years ago. And Mitt Romney? He won’t make it before the show’s 37th season wraps up on May 19, according to executive producer Lorne Michaels.
“We only have three shows left, and they’re pretty jammed-packed,” Mr. Michaels said during a conference call Wednesday. “It might be in the fall, but we’ll never know. That’ll all depend on his availability.”
The Republican nominee got an invitation in April. But alas. “The primaries overtook everything,” Mr. Michaels explained.
