So, I don’t know about you, but going to church has been a lot less interesting now that everyone is behind Gov. Romney. Even my friends who seemed to be the most opposed to supporting him are now actually enthusiastic about him.  (Or at the very least  are becoming more so.) Of course, we have been saying all along that very religious voters will favor Gov. Romney and, according to The Christian Post, that’s exactly what’s happening:

Fifty-four percent of registered voters categorized as “very religious” said they are currently supporting Romney, while 37 percent said they would vote for Obama, in the presidential race. Among the “moderately religious,” 54 percent support Obama and 40 percent support Romney. Among the “nonreligious” Obama’s support is even greater, 61 percent, while Romney gets only 30 percent.

Voters are more closely split when comparing Catholics and Protestants. Protestants favor Romney, a Latter-day Saint, 48 to 43 percent. Catholics favor Obama, a Protestant, 51 to 45 percent.

Among “very religious” Catholics, though, the advantage tilts to Romney, 50 to 46 percent. The gap is even wider among “very religious” Protestants, who favor Romney 54 to 35 percent. When factoring in race and ethnicity, the gap becomes wider still. Romney has a 41 percentage point advantage (64 to 23 percent) among very religious non-Hispanic white Protestants.

    And……..I believe the gap will widen even more as time progresses. The question is still on the table. Do we want FREEDOM or do we want MORE GOVERNMENT? It’s still all about the economy…….We’re not stupid!.

    Nancy, I am so glad that you are able to say, “I told you so!” And I am especially thankful for the part you and the EFM staff have played in moving Mitt’s candidacy forward! EFM is a light shining in the darkness!

    Thank you for your article on Mitt Romney. It is my hope and prayer that more people will see that the Church of Jesus Christ (Mormon) is christian some day and has some of the same core beliefs as others who are deeply religious. If only people really understood what a Stake Presidents responsibilites in the Church of Jesus Christ. They would really see Mitt has worked hard to help the poor, needy and trodden down. Unlike the press would have us believe.
