Surveys indicate that the Catholic vote is "too close to call," a Catholic research center at Georgetown University says.
"The vote of Catholics remains quite evenly split: 47 percent for President Obama and 45 percent for Gov. Romney," the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate said Sept. 17.
The statistically tied candidates have rarely topped 50 percent of the Catholic vote. The small percentage of Catholic registered voters will likely decide the winner of the Catholic vote in a country where one in four voters is Catholic.
The research center aggregated data from polls that surveyed a Catholic sub-group, including Pew, Gallup and TIPP.
