Did Romney’s Mormonism Hurt Him In South Carolina? Sure Looks Like It
This particular result from the CNN Exit Poll of yesterday’s South Carolina raises an eyebrow (click image to enlarge) :
It is, I suppose, amusing that the guy who was raised Lutheran, became a Baptist in college, and converted to Catholicism after marrying the third wife he’d been carrying on an extra-martial affair with gets the support of a plurality of those who think a candidates religious beliefs matter. However, the opposing numbers for Romney raise the possibility that his Mormonism, or to put it more precisely evangelical bigotry toward Mormons, is still an issue. How that impacts the race going forward is an open question.
