Most Influential Catholic Of 2009 – The Results

Thanks to everyone who participated in the first AoftheA “Most Influential Catholic Of 2009″ poll. More than 100 people voted in both categories – the St Thomas More Division and the Baron Richard Rich Division – and here are the final tallies:

Archbishop Chaput won recognition in 2009, in a contest that was never all that close.

St Thomas More
Archbishop Chaput: 48%
Bishop Tobin: 31%
Mary Ann Glendon: 19%


The Richard Rich race was close throughout the entire contest – which just goes to show that poor examples of the faith are by and large equally bad. But in the end, Rev. Jenkins escaped with the dubious honors.


Baron Richard Rich

Reverend Jenkins of Notre Dame: 34%
Doug Kmiec: 33%
Sister Donna Quinn: 31%
Ray Grosswirth: 2%


Who will emerge as Most Influential Catholic in 2010? Time will tell.
I predict that the fields in both categories will expand, especially with further debate over Health Care and upcoming elections. It will be an interesting year!
