Who will the Mormons vote for?! If their only choice was Romney, I bet a fair number of Mormons wouldnt really give the other candidates a second thought.
But of course we have freeper Mormons who do not agree. Perhap they're int he 6%?
You picked up on that too?
FWIW, I would never vote FOR someone based solely on their (professed) religious affiliation. That goes for Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, or even Mormon. Nor would I vote AGAINST someone for those same reasons. It's clear that, given the real-world examples of politicians like Mitt Romney and Harry Reid, being a Mormon is no guarantee of being a small-government, pro-life, pro-gun, pro-property-rights, anti-welfare-state, low-tax fiscal/social/religious conservative politician. Show me a candidate that advocates and votes for those things more consistently than his political rivals, and he'll have my vote - Mormon or not, Republican or not.
Oh, and I forgot one more thing: IB4PD1
I’m part of the 6% (actually 10%—Romney got 90% in Utah). I’m LDS, can’t stand Romney. I was a Fredhead, but he faded too soon. I wouldn’t vote for Harry Reid if my life depended on it. I never understood why so many Utah Mormons were ga-ga over the Mittster.
