Donald Trump is losing with Catholic voters — by a lot.
Here's the breakdown in the Catholic vote between President Obama and Mitt Romney. In 2012, Catholics went for Obama over Romney by about 2 percentage points. It was 50 percent to 48 percent.
And here's that breakdown now between Hillary Clinton and Trump. According to a recent poll from Public Religion Research Institute, Trump is 23 points behind Clinton among Catholics. That breakdown is 55 percent to 32 percent.
