Poll: Romney's Mormonism Could Hurt Him In Primary, But Not In General Election

A new study by the Pew Research Center suggests that Mitt Romney’s Mormonism may hurt his chances of capturing the Republican nomination for President. If Romney is nominated, however, his faith is unlikely to hurt him in the general election.

Although only about half of voters know that Romney is a Mormon, 60 percent of Evangelical Republicans are aware of Romney’s faith according to the survey. Only 8 percent of overall voters say that Romney’s faith makes them less likely to vote for him, but that number jumps to 15 percent among white Republican evangelical Christians.

    Probably quite true. The American electorate is far more centrist and accepting that the Republican Party which, since it’s take-over by the Evangelical Psychos, is politically just to the right of Joseph Goebbels.

    There might be a lot of evangelicals who despise Obama because of his policies, but the reality is that most dislike him because of his race. And since evangelicals believe that “all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God”, that bit of Scripture applies to them as well. A believer can tell a lie as easily as a non-believer can.

    The constitution is explicit, that there shall be no religious test for public office. We could even elect an atheist. I may be naive, but I believe that the electorate will put religious bigotry behind us, and most Americans will vote the issues, instead the religions that the candidate has.
