Faith in Public Life Action Fund has a new poll out that they commissioned that focuses specifically on white Catholic voters in the Midwest. These voters back Romney by eight points, 48% to 40% but they are also responsive to religiously inflected critiques of the Romney-Ryan budget plans and they do not believe that President Obama is hostile to religion.
Of course, a case can be made that the Democratic Party seems hell bent on making itself appear hostile to religion, cf. reaction to news that Cardinal Dolan is going to pray at GOP National Convention.
