So when will the Mormon-card be played?

If Mitt keeps going at his current rate, this card may never have to be pulled by the other side but do you see this being brought up any time soon?

I'm not condoning whatever strategies may come about because I honestly don't give a sh*t, Obama and Romney are both pieces of crap and I won't see much change regardless of which guy is elected...but I definitely see the Mormon issue rising back into the spotlight especially given the rate at which they're going at each other over such minor bullsh*t from speeches and such.

What say you?

On the question of eternal damnation, evangelicals don't consider Mormons to be Christian. That alone should take Romney out of the running for President of the USA. Unless you think the current President is a Muslim or even worse, black!

Concerns among some Republicans that conservative evangelical voters would turn away from Romney because of faith differences are simply not panning out. The one note of concern for Romney's campaign is that Republicans who are uneasy with his faith are far less likely to describe their support for him as "strong," which could translate into a lower turnout.

A plurality of Americans -- 44% -- can't name President Obama's religion, according to a Gallup Poll.

Among others, just 34% correctly identify Obama as a Christian, while 11% incorrectly insist he is a Muslim.

Most of those who say Obama is Muslim are Republicans.

"These data show that in terms of his religion, most Americans do not adhere to the belief that he is a Muslim," Gallup says.

"However," it adds, "the fact that almost one in five Republicans do hold this belief suggests the potential for continuing controversy on this issue in the months ahead."

I would guess that any preference for the Mormon or Christian religion is not a game changer for most Independents and Democrats. The only ones that might be primarily guided by religious affiliation are the evangelicals and they think President Obama is the devil. So there really isn't any benefit to playing this card for either camp.

Has Mormonism slowed Harry Reid at all?

Ruling over your own planet after death is a completely ok theology as long as black liberation theology does not enter into it. I mean what kind of scumbags bring up religious beliefs as slams against the President of a nation founded on Freedom of Religion?

How many conservatives bring up Romney's religion again?

When the trailer park trash bring up Obama's religion, it's a net positive for him. Tinderbox lefties talk about it for weeks.... "17 people in Allabammer think he's a Mooslim, therefore every old person/ church goer/ soccer mom does too!"

I enjoy watching lefties try to instill that same fear of the unknown (Mormon) into our less intellectually gifted trailer park denizens. It's been going on for years. How's it working?

Recent poll shows 17% of Americans believe Obama is a Muslim.

I haven't heard anyone speak out about Romney's Mormonism. I doubt any controversy over his religion will reach the heights Obama's religion has been at. Hell 24% of Republicans think Obama is the anti-christ.

Which is less than the number of americans that believe the government was behind 9-11, probably similar to the number of americans that believe the moon landings were fake, or that some secret cabal really runs the world. People believe some crazy things, always have and always will.

Awesome you linked to a page that flat out says the information isn't valid.

Having said all that, a couple of caveats and complaints that have come out about the poll: First the questions are loaded, and second it was taken online, which is a controversial technique. (For more, see this Newsbusters piece.) So take it with whatever size piece of salt you see fit.

Of course. However I doubt 25% of dems think Romney is the anti Christ or some equivalent villain.

A 2007 poll by public policy polling found that 27% of those who identified themselves as liberals believed that Bush had advance knowledge of 9-11 or even planned it. Thats worse than believing Obama is a secret muslim, although both are equally ridiculous. Overall, only about 14% of americans believe that Bush planned or knew of the attacks.

Both sides of the political spectrum have their lunatic fringe.
