Unlike some other denominations, the Roman Catholic Church counts as members all persons baptized in that faith, without regard to their current religious activity.
So in other words, that 23% includes me, your 'umble narrator, who was baptized Catholic (and my father has the sickeningly cute photos to prove it) but who now enters a Catholic church only when held at gunpoint and/or invited to a wedding with an open bar.
Here's another fun fact - when Sam Alito is confirmed, Catholics will comprise a majority of the Supreme Court.
Now, then, why do you suppose that is?
