Forty-three percent (43%) of American voters say they would never even consider voting for a Mormon Presidential candidate.

Of course, most if not all of those are Dems. Our state rep (for several terms) was Mormon and it didn't seem to hurt him at all.

Nameless Mormons are like all other nameless candidates.

Once they see Mitt is not a 3 headed monster with as many wives and hundreds of children I think they will not be so ignorant.

I've been saying this over-and-over and keep getting attacked as "Anti-Mormon."

Not the case at all. (I know squat about Mormons, other than they make good neighbors and that the Methodist Church and Roman Catholics don't accept their baptisms.)

It's a fact.

I can hear now Pat Robertson getting on the 700 Club and saying "God will withdraw his protection from us if we support a non-Christian like Romney."

Yes, yes, I know Mormon consider this Christian. Again, I have no idea on the subject.

I am just stating a fact: the "700 Club" set won't vote for Romney

And a Republican CANNOT get elected with active dislike of that group.

Period.

Hillary would get out her fake 2ft by 2ft Bible and claim to be a Christian and that would be all it will take.

Now this is annoying, the media is already trying to shape the race on the republican side.

1. McCain
2. Rudy
3. Condi isn't going to run why bring her up?
4. Mitt Romney.

My goodness three moderate/liberals and a ghost candidate who will not appear on any ballot.

How about "None of the Above"?

While I would have no problem voting for some Mormons, this particular one is a non-starter (or Hatch for that matter).

While I would not vote for a Mormon Presidential candidate, I would vote for a Presidential candidate that happened to be Mormon.

"Oh, 'Mormon'! We thought you said 'moron'. That's very different....

They probably have no idea what a Mormon is. They probably think it's an Amish guy wearing a straw hat and holding a pitchfork.

Hey, if voters can elect a practicing Muslim after 9/11, they can definitely vote for a Mormon.

Sorry, but the Southern Baptist south would not vote Mormon.

Does anyone remember if this was an issue when George Romney ran for president?

I think we should be willing to have a Mormon president, and I think we need to look past the old jokes and ancient stereotypes!

(And besides, the job of First Lady is pretty difficult, and team of six women would do a much better job.)

Baptists are soooo huggable and a large percentage of them are in therapy for sexual issues.

Lots of folks would love to make Romney's candidacy about his Mormon background. But that is completely off point.

Willard Mitt Romney's candidacy is about his record of extreme liberalism.

I knew that this would be the case, I said so when people on FreeRepublic were suggesting an Obama/Romney match up. I said that Obama would win because he's not out of the closet as far as being a Muslim is concerned, and Mitch Romney is very open about his religious affiliation. So, the country would elect a Muslim over a Mormon.

I don't know of ANY conservative who is so blatantly INTOLERANT.

Most, if not ALL, conservative/evangelical PEOPLE - not unknown polled unknowns! - greatly admire the (practicing) Mormons we know, and admire their sacrifices and their lifestyles.

Don't agree with them, but admire them.

This is BS, unless of course, if the pollsters/democrats/MSM are trying to abort his campaign ow.

After all, they want to abort everything else.
