7. Not true. Pope Francis and the majority of Catholics do not prioritize

reproductive issues over everything else. And American Catholics reject the hierarchy's position on birth control and abortion.

While certain Catholics may vote for Republicans based on those issues, the majority of Catholics are swinging away this year -- based on many other concerns.

Donald Trump has a massive Catholic problem

Update: At the bottom of this post, I dive into suggestions that Trump struggles with Catholics because they are largely Latino. In fact, it's more about white Catholics. The rest of this post is from Sunday.

Much has been made of Donald Trumpís problems with a few voting groups ó female voters, blacks and Hispanics, and young voters, in particular. And, to be sure, they are all problems.

But relatively speaking, his biggest problem actually appears to be with a different group: Catholics.

Yes, the man who once feuded with the pope (how soon we forget that actually happened) is cratering among Catholics.
