Don’t ask me, ask Gallup:
The May 25-30  survey from the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press asked people how they would vote for presidential candidates with different traits.
Overall, 25 percent of voters would be less likely to vote for a Mormon. Liberal Democrats were most opposed to a Mormon candidate (41 percent).
There you have it, lady and gents, despite some gentlepersons of the left trying to make great hay of GOP opposition to Mitt Romney’s “Mormon” candidacy like this:
Yeah, there is some opposition in the primary, but even evangelicals only came in at 34%, and those like Cincinnati Reds pitcher cum preacher Frank Pastore will still go for Romney over the Democrat if he’s the GOP nominee.
The breakdown from Gallup, prejudiced against Mormon candidates:
It is to laugh. Hail to the Chief. As our good friend Mr. Schilling aptly quoted the estimable South Park:
“Maybe us Mormons do believe in crazy stories that make absolutely no sense, and maybe Joseph Smith did make it all up. But I have a great life and a great family, and I have the Book of Mormon to thank for that. The truth is, I don’t care if Joseph Smith made it all up, because what the Church teaches now is loving your family, being nice and helping people. And even though people in this town might think that’s stupid, I still choose to believe in it. All I ever did was try to be your friend, Stan, but you’re so high and mighty you couldn’t look past my religion and just be my friend back. You’ve got a lot of growing up to do, buddy. Suck my balls.”
I’d pay good money to hear President Romney tell his detractors to suck his balls as he’s inaugurated in 2013. But I’ll smile instead, and hear him say what he leaves unsaid.
