With polls showing a tightening race for the White House, it looks like the Catholic vote again may be crucial to the outcome.

And an Oct. 23 poll records a startling 20-point swing this week among Catholic voters in favor of John McCain.

The IBD/TIPP daily tracking poll found Republican candidate McCain ahead of Democratic presidential candidate 48%-39% among the Catholics in its survey.

The shift was part of a strong overall swing toward McCain in the IBD/TIPP poll.

“McCain has cut into Obama’s lead for a second day and is now just 1.1 points behind. The spread was 3.7 Wednesday and 6.0 Tuesday,” a press release stated. “The Republican is making headway with middle- and working- class voters, and has surged 10 points in two days among those earning between $30,000 and $75,000. He has also gone from an 11-point deficit to a 9-point lead among Catholics.”
