    There is an ad up on this site (on my pc it is right above this comment section)  That is titled, Mormons and Politics.

    Yes there are many degrees of Mormon's political leanings and no the church does not ( the Hierarchy of the church) tell people what party to belong to. . . but. . .

    Growing up in the church and for 40 or more years since I left it I know that the common sentiment and especially at the local congregation level (the Ward) it is often inferred if not outright stated you cannot be a "good mormon" and a Democrat.  So, I can't accept the idea that there is no political affiliation and no "pressure" towards one party or another.

    JMO and years of affiliation and study, not to mention lots of friends and family members who still are faithful mormons.
