As I posted a few days ago of course it's important to look at events in the late 60's and early 70's very closely. The departure of Evangelicals in areas of the country from the democrat party was at play too. The New Deal Coalition was fraying. See The CNN Article On How the GOP Got Catholic Is Incomplete . In that post this link tells a lot of the story.
