Skip to comments.Democrats Have Bigger Anti-Mormon Problem in Election Than GOP Has
Posted on 04/24/2012 10:55:27 PM PDT by South40
Polls show 27 percent of Democrats would not vote for a Mormon, versus 18 percent of Republicans. There are votes in anti-Mormonism, but the Obama campaign must resist any temptation to play on it.
With just over six months before Election Day, the 2012 presidential campaign looks dull but astonishing. Its dull because Barack Obama no longer elicits the kind of passion he did in 2008, and Mitt Romney has never elicited much passion at all. But its astonishing because it features an African-American and a Mormon, two of the most discriminated-against groups in American history. In the year of Romneys birth (1947) or Obamas (1961), the idea that a presidential election would one day pit an American of Romneys religion versus an American of Obamas race would have boggled the mind.

The difference is probably made up by the KKK contingent of the Democratic Party.
Isn’t it true that the Left has an issue with any religion except for radical islam or the environmentalism cult?
“Isnt it true that the Left has an issue with any religion except for radical islam or the environmentalism cult?”
Well, Unitarians are OK. Jeremiah Wright faux Christianity is OK.
Prove that Mr. Obama (if that’s actually his name) was born in 1961.
Oh I'm sure they won't. HA! Romney will be labeled a Branch Davidian before it is all over.
“Democrats should remember the fear and revulsion they felt when conservatives played on Obamas race and do everything humanly possible to prevent their party mates from doing the same.”
Hmmm. I don’t recall any of that. I recall a Republican party and a Republican presidential candidate that was scared to attack Obama at all. HRC was the only one with balls enough to raise Rev. Wright’s hateful craziness. McCain and the old media wouldn’t touch it or any other racially charged issues in the general election.
So now we have our most racist administration since Woodrow Wilson.
Islam and Mormonism are very similar.....that’s why there are thousands of Muslims in Mormon Utah. ..and the outreach programs to each other are vast and wide...and have been. They do come to each others defense.
I won’t vote for Willard, that’s for sure. It’s going to be a write-in for me this year.
Muslim vs. Mormon.
The headline is nonsense. Why would the Dems have an anti-Mormon problem in the election when it’s their opponent who is a Mormon? If anything, more bias against Mormons will be a bigger motivator for Dems to get out and vote against Romney.
He is a Mormon, so what..
What he is, is the inventor of Romney-care..
running against the inventor of Obama-care..
This election is a cartoon, on purpose I suppose..
Seems to be, way too many Cartoonists in Washington D.C..
I would vote for Jessica Rabbit.. i.e. Rogers wife..
Thats one HOT Toon right there..
( Ross Perot only richer).
The Forbes Family wealth started with shipping trade with China ( some say drugs)
President of Alexander Bell Telephone Company and railroads.
Then of course the Billion dollars from the Heinez Fortune he married into and made him the richest Politican.
Those anti Mormon groups in the Democratic Party is different,I think, from the anti Mormon in the Republican Party. The former sees Mormons as anti gay religious zealots, while the latter is against them on religious ground.
I’m sure if Romney was muslim, the Dems would be throwing themselves at him.
“I wont vote for Willard, thats for sure. Its going to be a write-in for me this year.”
Why not save yourself the trouble of actually having to “write-in” a name and just pull the lever for 0bama?
Wake up. There is way too much at stake this time around. A third party vote is a vote for a Communist America.
I took the same stance as you when I wrote in Duncan Hunter/John Bolton in 2008 and look where that got us!
I’m hoping that the surgeons can stitch my tongue back together after I vote for the GOP candidate.
America cannot survive 4 more years of the Communist/Marxist 0bama and you know it.
No black man has ever been lynched by a Republican, and no black woman has ever been raped by a Republican.
On the other hand, the unofficial Dhimmi campaign staff -- MSNBC, DU, Media Matters, Kos, NYT, etc. -- may well go full-bore anti-Mormon, at least in the beginning. If this tactic seems to work against Romney in the polls, the attacks will probably increase. But then, there's always the chance of a backlash. Only time will tell.
