The L.A. Times has an article about — you guessed it — about whether evangelicals will support Mormons during the next election. They talk about plight of Gov. Huntsman and Gov. Romney, who both are members of the LDS Church:
Polling shows that Mormon candidates have an uphill struggle. A Pew Research Center survey in June found that 34% of white evangelicals said they would not vote for a Mormon presidential candidate, and that a quarter of all Americans said they would be less likely to do so.
This attitude led Tennessee attorney David French and his wife, Nancy, to found the website Evangelicals for Mitt in 2006. It has been resurrected for this election.
French said he believed that only a “small number” of evangelicals would reject Romney based on religion, and that many were seeking a candidate whose values, rather than religious beliefs, mirror their own.
“Where does he stand on abortion? Marriage?” French said. “If you talk to evangelicals, many will say even if they disagree with Mormon theology, the Mormons they know are rock-solid conservatives with values that should be of comfort.”
Also, allow me to clarify. We don’t think you should vote for any Mormon — just the one who turned around Massachusetts and the 2002 Olympics, and actually has a plan to turn around America. Read the whole article here.
