Did Catholics Switch To The Democrats?

I just received a release from the Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good with some potentially disturbing news. They claim that large numbers of Catholics switched their votes from the GOP to the Democrats in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Virginia. The swing in each state was as follows:


OH - 47 points
PA – 22 points
VA - 15 points

That would explain Santorum's loss in Pennsylvania. It would be interesting to see more in-depth analysis of these exit polls to determine why they changed their votes this year.
