A new Pew Research poll shows white and Hispanic Catholics split over who they will vote for in the 2020 US presidential elections.
According to a survey of 11,001 American adults conducted in July and August, Pew found registered voters who identify as white Catholics planned to support President Donald Trump by a margin of 19 points; 59 per cent to 40 per cent. The margin of error for the survey of white Catholics was listed as +/- 4 percentage points. Conversely, among registered voters who identified as Hispanic Catholics, only 33 per cent said they were supporting Trump. Sixty-five per cent of Hispanic Catholics surveyed said they supported Biden. The margin of error for the survey of Hispanic Catholics was listed as +/- 6.4 points. There was no breakdown provided for Catholics of all ethnicities as a single group in the 2020 survey.
