"The latest Bloomberg/Los Angeles Times poll caught many observers by surprise. The surprise came from the high percentage, according to this poll, who say they wouldn't vote for a Mormon for president.
That Bloomberg/LA Times poll of 1,300 adults nationwide finds 37-percent say they wouldn't vote for a Mormon. By comparison, 22-percent of registered voters say they wouldn't support an evangelical Christian. 14-percent wouldn't back a Jewish candidate. Nine-percent wouldn't vote for a Catholic and 53-percent say they wouldn't cast a ballot for a Muslim. "
Interesting, because wasn't one of the reasons Orrin Hatch ran for President was to promote the Mormon faith and "pave the way" for someone to come after?
I swear I heard that said, if someone can find it they win the prize.
Mitt Romney will struggle through South Carolina, but if he can have a strong showing in New Hampshire and Michigan he may survive. I just don't think he could beat John McCain or Rudy Guiliani. The evangelicals will probably go with Huckabee from Arkansas (which may decide the election in 2008, especially if someone named Clinton is on the ballot, they are not as red as some people think)
