Skip to comments.Less Than Half Of Americans Know Romney's A Mormon
Posted on 07/25/2011 4:25:41 PM PDT by freespirited
If the Mitt Romney campaign has worries that the candidate's Mormon faith may be an insurmountable obstacle to the White House, they may take solace from one recent survey: According to the Public Religion Research Institute and Religion News Service, only 40% of Americans identify Romney as a Mormon.
46% claim they do not know the candidate's faith and 10% figured him to be a Protestant or Catholic. Incidentally these numbers mirror those of the man Romney is seeking to unseat, President Barack Obama. Four in ten Americans do not know the president's faith, 18% believe he is a Muslim and only a quarter correctly listed him as a Protestant.
Many Americans tell pollsters they are uncomfortable with a Mormon candidate. A recent Quinnipac poll found that while a majority of 60% of Americans are either entirely or somewhat comfortable with a Mormon president, this figure is less than those accepting of a Catholic of Jewish head of state, 83% and 80% respectively. 54% of African Americans and roughly 40% of women are uncomfortable with a Mormon president. The latter may be due to the church's history of excluding blacks from the priesthood and the past doctrine of polygamy.* The church has long disavowed polygamy and the exclusion of blacks from the priesthood was lifted in 1976.

Remarkable. I've known that about Slick Willard a long time.
I can’t WAIT to not vote for that RINO hair-helmet..!
I doubt he’s really a Mormon. He’s no more a Mormon than he is a conservative.
But more than half of Freepers know that he's a good, solid democrat who's gumming up our party.
Mitt’s religion is about 3% of his total problem for me.
Socialized medicine blows.
Absolutely. I don’t care about Mormonism, but I do care about him being a RINO
It is a miracle that half of Americans can breathe.
I’m far more concerned with his liberalism anyway.
Romney believes in man made global warming.
He originated RomneyCare, the father of ObamaCare.
Romney supported gay rights.
He supported the GM/Dodge bailout.
He supported the bank bailout.
He was for abortion until he ran for president.
Romney’s answers to Planned Parenthood:
1. Do you support the substance in the Supreme Court decision, Roe vs. Wade? YES
2. Do you support state funding of abortion services through Medicaid for low-income women? YES
Mittens is an anchor baby.
The Romney lawyers investigated this question in the 1960s, when Mitt Romneys father, Governor George Romney of Michigan, was vying for the Republican presidential nomination. George Romney had been born in a Mormon colony in Chihuahua, Mexico, as his grandfather moved there with his wives in the 1880s after polygamy was outlawed in the U.S.
While some opponents nicknamed him Chihuahua George, his suitability for the highest office because of his birth was never seriously challenged. The reason his campaign faltered was because of his shift in position on the Vietnam War: He went from being a supporter to opposing it, infamously claiming to have been brainwashed by military officials. After that Richard Nixons lead in the polls more than doubled.
Article II of the U.S. Constitution states that No person except a natural born citizen shall be eligible to the Office of President, and so the question is: Does natural born citizen mean born a citizen or born in the U.S.? The Founding Fathers were of course aware of both jus soli (birthright citizenship) and jus sanguinis (citizenship through parentage), but deliberately wrote natural born rather than something like born on U.S. soil, arguably to include children born to U.S parents outside the country.
This makes sense now doesnt it Huh?

When the polygamist Mormons fled to Mexico rather than conform to American law, one of the conditions for their relocation was the total loss of their American citizenship. (i.e. they were kicked out, never to return.)
Any who wanted to return to America had to petition and take the citizenship tests and swear in... to become citizens again.
The Romneys sneaked back in. They did not petition to become citizens of America.
Mittens is an anchor baby.
White skin and oodles of green money buy acceptance, but they don’t buy honor. However, what does honor matter to a politician?
Yes, but 100% of Freepers know he’s a MORON!
>>Less Than Half Of Americans Know Romney’s A Mormon<<
Yeah, but plenty of us know he’s a RINO.
About the same number of people who don’t know obama is a muslim and a kenyan.
That's funny, because I bet double that don't know hussein is a muzzie; poor infidels.
