Clinton's success with European-American Catholic voters
Ever since the days of the "Reagan Democrats", European-American Catholics increasingly vote Republican. However the Clinton campaign sees an opening, and polls show she's winning this important demographic. The shift towards Clinton owes partly to the recent sexual harassment scandals involving Trump that offend many of the devout. At the same time Pope Francis' has moved the church to emphasize service to the poor versus issues of morality like abortion and gay rights.
