One of the many reasons Romney is unelectable. That is precisely the view many if not most Christians have of Mormonism. Pricisely as this article reads.
The base of Christian conservatives will not trust him or vote for him, and he’s a Republican which means none of the Dems will vote for him either. What does that leave for a voting block in the general elecion? 30-some percent of POTENTIAL voters being the maximum possible and going down from there? The election will be a battle of which party has more people NOT vote compared to the other. We can’t win that fight, the Dems can fraud the numbers in every state to make up the difference. We must have massive turnout, nothing else will get it done. Romney has a 0% chance of getting massive Republican voter turnout. He cannot by his own past political stances and his current religion get a good turnout going across the entire Republican voting base. Simple fact, love it or hate it there is no way to change it by the election. Romney is not the guy.
Now look at where Herman Cain is right now... it’s because OUR 20% base is fully on board with his message right now, plus a good chunk of the the middle and those who consider themselves Libertarian due to his message.
Absolutely no contest in terms of the size of the voting pool he can appeal to.
And to be fair I’m not locking down to one candidate this race, if Perry is the man so be it, but even Perry reaches more of our voters by far.
