Many readers have advised that a TIME poll recently found that Governor Romney is perceived as the most religious candidate.
Even more interesting, Gary Bauer seems to be indicating that evangelical poobahs aren’t sure that’s a good thing:
Thompson still faces stumbling blocks among rank-and-file evangelicals, including his own reputation as an infrequent churchgoer. But “Thompson’s very good on the defense of normal marriage and free expression of religion,” says one time presidential candidate Gary Bauer. “Frankly, he might have an easier time…if he’s not easily labeled as ‘religious right.’”
I’m not sure that makes sense, honestly. If you have thoughts, e-mail them and I will post some later.
