I have heard it proposed that the proximity to the bible belt leads to more Catholics voting for socially conservative positions, such as Perry County. Heavy Catholic influence but strongly Republican.

Most Catholics who vote Democratic in Missouri and elsewhere nowadays are CINOs - Catholics in Name Only. They rarely if ever go to Mass. They are either too lazy to leave the Church altogether or see themselves as thorns in the side of the clergy. McCaskill may be among them.

Churchgoing Catholics returning to GOP fold

How GOP got Catholicized - CNN.com

Of course there are probably some devout Catholics (particularly Irish-American ones) in some strongholds like Boston or NYC who stick with the Democrats out of loyalty because it was the party of their ancestors.

It won't make any difference. The voters will quickly realize that both political parties are not for their best interests. They are just slow to learn.

Question Akin

While I am pro life I do believe there should be exceptions for rape and incest. Akin clearly misspoke and did not have his facts straight. However the alternative McCaskill is unacceptable to me so I will chalk up Akins comments to a mistake which we all make and will still vote Republican. Actually I am an independent but will probably vote a straight Republican ticket this year. These Democrats are spending us into a national crisis. They all need to go especially Obama. If you want some perspecive as to where Obama's roots are go see the movie 2016.

Anyone who recommends anything done by D'Souza is not an independent; let's be clear about that.

Republicans really need to use people like John Hunstman as a template for future candidates and the future direction of their party -- educated, rational, pro-science and a credible record.

I totally agree with this. Too bad all the GOP candidates are pandering to an undereducated, knee-jerk reactionary, teabagging base.
