I wonder if Jimmy Carter struggled with the Catholic vote relative to most Democrats at the time. Anecdotally I know a handful of older relatives, (all of whom are otherwise Democratic leaning) that are northeastern Irish-Catholics who voted for Ford in 76 and either Reagan or Anderson in 1980. I wonder if this partly explains what seems like an underperformance for him in Massachusetts in 76 and outright losing the state in 80. Maybe itís not the Catholic vote per say but specifically a northeastern phenomenon.
