Thomas Groome, Professor of Religion and Theology, says Democrats are losing ground in key rust belt states, with Catholic voters moving to the GOP. He notes that President Trump won the White Catholic vote by 23 percentage points over Hillary Clinton, a group that President Bill Clinton won in each of his presidential elections of 1992 and 1996.

Professor Groome, in a recent editorial to the New York Times, urges Democrats to change the debate on abortion or risk losing more ground with Catholic voters.
