Catholics for Clinton.. Lots of them...

This probably won't make Hillary Clinton feel better, but if it were only Catholics voting in the Democratic presidential nominating contests, she would be in the driver's seat.


Clinton has dominated the Catholic Democratic vote, winning big states like California and New York by a more than 2 to 1 margin among Catholics which helped propel her to overall victory in those states.

She even won the Catholic vote in Illinois despite losing the overall primary to native son Barack Obama.

We spent some time in Rhode Island to explore why this is. The nation's smallest state has the nation's largest percentage of Catholics and they vote in their primary Tuesday along with Texas, Ohio, and Vermont.

We went to Masses, and talked to Catholics on the street, and most of the Democrats we talked to indeed supported Clinton.
