TRANSCRIPT

A new poll reveals Biden is more popular among U.S. Catholics than he is with many other religious groups. Church Militant's Paul Murano points to some reasons why that might be the case.

Despite Joe Biden's job approval tanking among just about every demographic, he's still popular among Catholics. A new poll reveals Catholics' overall approval of Biden dropped from 56% to 46% since this time last year. 

Among Hispanic Catholics, Biden's approval rating was 74% last year and dropped to 64% a year later. It's higher than any other Christian group other than Black Protestants. 

The so-called Catholic vote has been important in recent elections, since Catholics are about a quarter of the U.S. population. But U.S. bishops have been divided as to exactly what the Catholic vote is. 

At their November meeting in Baltimore, 95% of U.S. bishops voted to do basically nothing about Biden receiving Holy Communion, despite his blatant, decades-long advocacy of abortion and his support of sodomy.

In 2008, Catholics put Barack Obama in the White House, with 54% of Catholics casting their vote for the most pro-abortion, anti-Catholic president in U.S. history. Catholics did it again for the 2012 election, handing Obama a second term, with 51% voting for him.  

For the 2020 election, polls claim Biden garnered 52% of the Catholic vote.

With Catholic bishops remaining virtually silent on moral issues for the last 50 or so years, it's clear why people think they can identify as Catholic while espousing and voting for immoral acts that contradict Church teaching.

A few people spoke out during the last election, namely Fr. James Altman, who properly stated that people cannot vote for politicians who promote immoral causes. He was, of course, slammed by the Catholic establishment and threatened by his bishop.
