Nearly 1 in 5 Americans Would Not Vote for a Mormon President

According to Gallup’s Frank Newport, the American public has not altered its views on the possibility of a Mormon president for the past 44 years. When asked if they would vote for their party's candidate if they were Mormon, 18 percent of respondents said they would not.  That response varies only slightly from the 17% who responded similarly in 1968. Additionally, of those who know Romney’s faith, 9% said they would not vote for a Mormon.  On the other hand, 29% of those who are unaware of Romney’s faith would not vote for a Mormon. With Mitt Romney ramping up his campaign for the upcoming presidential elections, it will be interesting to see how the electorate, which has never seen a Mormon major-party nominee, will respond.
