vote is the largest
A swing vote is a vote that can swing either way; Democrat or Republican or Independent. Depending on the size of this swing vote, it can be very important in elections. Let’s take an example. Suppose John Doe, on the Democrat ticket, has 40 % of the total vote while Jim Smith, on the Republican ticket has 40 % also. This means that the remaining 20 % of the voters will decide the election. This is the swing vote. Depending on which way it goes, i.e. for Doe or for Smith, it will decide who wins the election.
This is the position of the Catholic vote; it can decide elections.
And, it can decide whether “baby killers” will continue their ghastly trade.

these voters were blue collar workers, often union members, and often part

Catholics must vote – put their ethnic differences aside – and vote as Catholics, for Catholic ideals, principles, and values. We must vote as a
