June 20, 2011: In U.S., 22% Are Hesitant to Support a Mormon in 2012
Gallup ^ | June 20, 2011 | Lydia Saad

Posted on 02/06/2012 2:42:39 PM PST by JediJones

[Me: The title of the article says "hesitant," but the article says that 22% is a flat "no" in answer to the question ending with "would you vote for that person?"]

Though the vast majority of Americans say they would vote for their party's nominee for president in 2012 if that person happens to be a Mormon, 22% say they would not, a figure largely unchanged since 1967. [Me: Is less than 4 out of 5 really considered "vast?"]

The new Gallup poll, conducted June 9-12, finds nearly 20% of Republicans and independents saying they would not support a Mormon for president. That is slightly lower than the 27% of Democrats saying the same.

At 22%, Americans' resistance to electing a Mormon president, even one nominated by their own party, is exceeded only by their opposition to electing someone who is either gay or lesbian (32%) or an atheist (49%).

The stability in U.S. bias against voting for a Mormon presidential candidate contrasts markedly with steep declines in similar views toward several other groups over the past half-century, including blacks, women, Catholics, and Jews.

This may be less troubling for Romney in the GOP primaries, where the vote could be highly fractured anyway, than in the general election, where -- should he win the Republican nomination -- he would need nearly complete support from Republicans to be competitive with President Obama.

So Obama would have 22% of the vote locked up right out of the gate against Romney.

There are plenty of Mormons I know that I’d support.

It just happens that none of them are named RINOmney.

Romney: For when you despise Obama, but love his policies.

Another comment on the author’s use of the word “vast” to describe a 78% majority. If 78% is vast, does that mean it would be okay for a kid to tell his parents that he scored “vastly well” on his final exam if he got a 78 out of 100?

I call B.S.!! I think this poll is designed to try to make Republicans feel it's okay to vote for a Mormon.

"The new Gallup poll, conducted June 9-12, finds nearly 20% of Republicans and independents saying they would not support a Mormon for president. That is slightly lower than the 27% of Democrats saying the same."

This is the line that I find surprising and which cast doubt on the validity of the poll. Given the stats about how republicans are more religious than democrats, I would have expected a higher percent of republicans to have an issue with Mormonism than democrats.

No they won't. They will vote for a true alternative to Romney/Obama.

And they will do that in hopes that eventually, the rest of the republican party will quit voting for whatever liberal candidate the democrats in charge of the GOP offer up, and join us in voting for a difference.

Romney vs Obama is not a choice. It's tofu vs tofu. We won't real meat! I'm not voting for tofu.

That might influence it a percent or two.

They claim 6 million members in the U.S. I bet it’s more like 2 million including all the many splits they’ve had, like the fundamentalists and the strangites, etc.

So 2 million mormons out of (142 million voters (2004) * 39% republican) = 55 million. Okay maybe 4%. Still don’t believe the poll.

It would be easy to skew the poll though. Just oversample utah.

Yep and I'm on of them. Don't say we didn't warn you ! I won't vote for Romney for the exact same reasons I didn't vote for Clinton !

Above all else, RINOs must be punished ! We are in a war for the survival of our country and Mitt Romney is the Benedict Arnold of 2012 ! This must be dealt with BEFORE we can win against our enemies the democrats.

I intend to write in George Washington for president and vote conservative on all other ballot measures.

22% won't vote for Bishop Romney because he's a mormon, I believe there's another 22% that won't vote for him simply because he's an ultraliberal, putting aside his mormonism. That spells huge trouble for Romney.

I fit in both categories.

Under no circumstances will I ever stand before my Maker and explain that because he was the lesser of two evils, I supported a baby-killing cultist who directly or through his organization proclaimed that:

  1. There are more gods than the one God revealed in the Bible.

  2. God is a glorified, perfected human being with a body of flesh and bone.

  3. God is polygamously married to dozens (at least) of wives, and spends eternity as a type of Celestial Stud engaged in endless copulation producing countless spirit babies.

  4. Jesus is the spirit brother of Lucifer.

  5. Jesus is the literal Son of God who was conceived through direct sexual intercourse between the Virgin Mary and God the Father -- or in other words, that God committed incest with his daughter Mary.

  6. A person is saved into heaven by virtue of their good works.

  7. A person must accept Joseph Smith in order to receive salvation.

  8. A person must pass in judgment before Joseph Smith before being admitted into Heaven.

  9. A person must believe in Prophet Lorenzo Snow's famous couplet: As man now is, God once was ... As God now is, Man may become.

  10. Non-whites are loathsome and cursed because of something they did or did not do in the dawn of pre-existence whereas people of European descent in general, and Mormons in particular, are white and delightsome.

  11. A person must aspire to be sealed in a Masonic-based temple ceremony to his/her spouse for time and all eternity so that they may someday become gods and goddesses ruling over our own planet.

  12. Wives will only be resurrected if their husbands call forth their Temple Name from beyond the veil.

  13. Christianity ceased to exist after the death of the twelve apostles, to the point where all Christian Churches (especially the Baptists, Catholics, Methodists and Presbyterians) are an abomination to the Lord.

  14. The Mormon Church is Christian.

Furthermore, I can't believe that any true Christian anywhere would ever contemplate supporting any candidate for any public office that espouses such horrible heretical and blasphemous doctrines -- be they Muslim, Mormon, or whatever.

In my case, if asked to uphold one cultist or the other, I will always support neither, no matter what the cost or penalty.

OK, but on the other side of the coin, I imagine because Democrats are more anti-religious, they would be more inclined to be skeptical of Mormons. I think it’s at least a common stereotype that Mormons are against drinking alcohol, so more liberals would be against them because they perceive them to be that uptight, religious type they generally dislike. More Republicans might accept them because they believe they have conservative political beliefs and that’s more important to them than their religion.

he's an ultraliberal, putting aside his mormonism.

Romney's liberalism makes the whole question of his Mormonism moot. I wouldn't vote for an evangelical Christian who had these political views.

While I have voted for active Mormons for state and local offices, I doubt that I would for a Mormon as POTUS but Romney doesn't even make me have to consider this question.

The number in polls has fluctuated between 20 and 25% over a great many years.

Seems stupid to start out with a candidate who alienates the conservative base and alienates a great percentage of the country.

But then I didn’t leave the Republican Party, they left me...

I wonder if Romney will resort to LDS DOCTRINE about Christians against Santorum ?

"Brother Taylor has just said that the religions of the day were hatched in hell. The eggs were laid in hell, hatched on its borders, and then kicked on to the earth." - FLDS/LDS "Prophet" Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses 6:176

"What is it that inspires professors of Christianity generally with a hope of salvation? It is that smooth, sophisticated influence of the devil, by which he deceives the whole world" - FLDS/LDS "Prophet" Joseph Smith, Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p.270

A Christian family from the time of the founding "prophets" of mormonism that they spoke so harshly against.

“I would have expected a higher percent of republicans to have an issue with Mormonism than democrats.”

___________________

You may be correct; however, I don't think it is because the poll is necessarily “BS.” I would suggest that it may be many of the poll's respondents are reluctant to admit their true feelings about Mormons because they feel this will make them appear bigoted.

I expect a similar type of psychology engenders the polls which show that Obama has a high “likeability” factor; even though he has a relatively low level of approval for his performance/policies.

It's the “PC” factor; which was created as part of an overall strategy to both control and shape freedom of speech and thought.

Personally, I dislike Romney because he is a liar and a liberal. I could care less about his religion.

Take care,

-Geoff
