ABSTRACT
This article describes the voting power of U.S. Catholics and notes what the implications would be if Republicans could convince them to make Grand Old Party their political home. The author notes the fact that little attention has been paid to the fact that a majority of Catholics voted for Republican congressional candidates during the November 1994 elections. The shift was not due to any strenuous effort on the part of Republicans. The author believes that if Republicans convince Catholics they have found a political home within the Party, a permanent political realignment will have taken place.
