    This sounds like the phantom Jews who won't back Obama, it's lovely, but there's no real polling evidence suggesting that they won't vote for Romney against Obama.

    What's even more interesting is your condescending attitude, based only on limited interactions, it's like deducing that liberals won't vote for Obama because you read Open Left's comments section...

    •  Actually there is polling (0+ / 0-)

      Read PPP's bible belt polling.

      As for anecdotal eveidence, sure that's what it is, but pretending there are zero others in the US who won't vote for a Mormon is completely laughable.

        PPP has never had polling reveal evangelicals or anyone else refusing to vote for Romney over Obama.  On the contrary, Romney posts the same numbers in trial heats vs. Obama that any Republican can be expected to get.

        That shows whatever their dislike of Romney or his faith, they'll hold their noses and vote for him.

        We are not going to be able to count on anyone refusing to vote for Romney because of his religion.  I'm glad for that, it's sickening to win that way.  We have to beat him straight up.

        That is, if he's the nominee.  Even as weak as his competition is, he's still a weak frontrunner.  His fundraising underscores that point, even despite his $12 million superpac haul.
