What are the ten things Americans think about Mormons and a Mormon president? Gallup has tried to determine that. A few points I found interesting:
- As far back as 1967, only three-quarters of Americans said they would vote for an otherwise well qualified person who was a Mormon. This year – some 40 years later – the results to this question are almost exactly the same.
- More Americans said they would vote “comfortably” for a Mormon (Romney) than would vote comfortably for a candidate who would be 72 years of age (McCain), or for a candidate who has been married for the third time (Giuliani).
- Liberals have much more negative views of the Mormon religion than conservatives or moderates.
