That’s the way it works. Identity politics always works out for the liberal. By all rights, Idaho, Utah (hasn’t gone, but will go for Romney) and Nevada should go to the conservative. But the lemming Mormons think because Romney is one them, that he must be the greatest thing ever. They also have some prophecy about a Mormon saving the U.S. Constitution or some such thing, and most Mormons are absolutely convinced that Romney’s the man to fulfill it. Ironically, it will probably just prove to be another false prophecy from the mouth of Joseph Smith even should Romney be elected.
Joseph Smith never mentioned Mitt. I did not know we thought he did. But, you might have some poll that says that. You have a reference? I have been pumping Santorum. Should I switch to Romney because he is LDS?
My local mormon “wishes that Romney were more conservative”, but will vote for him anyway.
Mormons are 2% of the U.S. population. Romney has won about 40% of all votes cast in GOP primaries and caucuses so far. Do the math.
